Individuals who are unhappy with their smiles have an array of cosmetic dental treatments to choose from. Among the most popular are veneers, which are thin shells of high-quality porcelain. Veneers are shaped and sized to slip over the surface of teeth and mask various aesthetic imperfections, making them one of the most versatile cosmetic treatments today.
Here, Oklahoma City cosmetic dentists Drs. Cory and Jennifer Chambers explain how porcelain veneers at Cobblestone Park Family Dental can transform dull teeth into a radiant smile.
Conceal Chips or Cracks
Veneers are a great way to hide superficial chips or cracks on tooth enamel. The porcelain shells are shaped to match the surrounding teeth for a seamless result.
Fill in Small Gaps
Even the smallest gap in your smile can make you feel self-conscious. Porcelain veneers can be used to slightly widen or elongate teeth, closing small yet noticeable spaces between teeth.
Hide Stubborn Stains or Worn Tooth Enamel
Not all types of tooth discoloration and stains respond well to teeth whitening and bleaching treatments. If teeth whitening hasn’t given you the results you want, consider porcelain veneers. Veneers can also be used to hide worn tooth enamel for a brighter and more translucent smile.
“Straighten” Crooked Teeth
Although porcelain veneer placement is solely a cosmetic procedure and cannot technically fix crooked teeth, veneers can improve the appearance of misaligned teeth and create the appearance of a straighter smile.
Camouflage Irregularly Shaped or Sized Teeth
Similarly, one or several irregularly shaped or sized teeth can throw off the harmony of your smile. Veneers can cover abnormally shaped or sized teeth for a more balanced and beautiful smile.
Smile More Confidently with Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are custom-crafted with your teeth and mouth’s unique specifications in mind. The veneers will also be color-matched so they can blend in with your natural teeth. With good oral hygiene and proper maintenance, porcelain veneers can last for many years.
