Did you know that an attractive smile can make you look younger and even boost your chances of a promotion at work? If you are currently unhappy with the way your teeth look, what is stopping you from achieving the beautiful smile you deserve?
Today’s evolving advancements in cosmetic dentistry make it possible for adults to correct all types of smile imperfections. Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution, as they have topped the charts as a breakthrough procedure in cosmetic dentistry. These wafer-thin porcelain shells are used to instantly fix teeth with the following broad range of concerns:
- Gapped (minor)
- Slightly misaligned
Veneers are only used on the front, visible teeth of your smile. They are known for helping patients achieve a Hollywood smile makeover with minimal prep and quick results.
When Veneers May Not Be Best
Veneers are one of the most life-changing investments you can make for your smile appearance. However, they do come with limitations and restrictions that should be noted. While they can correct an expansive range of aesthetic concerns, they are not for everyone. Patients should be in good dental health before considering veneers, as they are not suitable for teeth that are weak, damaged or decayed. In such cases a dental restoration is needed first.
Veneers may also be unfavorable for patients with a severe bite misalignment. Veneers are only bonded on the front surface of your teeth. Therefore, although they are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics,” they are only giving the appearance of straighter teeth and not actually moving the teeth or jaw into better position. Lastly, porcelain veneers require that a small portion of your teeth be shaved off so that the veneer can strongly bond to the tooth surface. This means that veneers are a non-reversible procedure, so ask questions and express your concerns upfront.
