What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are tooth-colored shells that are bonded to the front surface of teeth in order to improve look and appearance. They can be used to change tooth shape, length, color, and size. While there are both porcelain and resin veneers, porcelain veneers are often preferred as they may look more natural and reflect light more similar to natural teeth.
Who’s a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers aren’t for everyone, but those who may be great candidates for this type of cosmetic procedure include those who have teeth that are:
- Severely disclosed as a result of other dental treatments, food, or other substances/materials;
- Teeth that are chipped or broken, often as a result of an acute accident/ impact to the mouth;
- Teeth that have gaps between them, as porcelain veneers can be used to close the gap;
- Teeth that are significantly worn down; and
- Teeth that are otherwise unevenly shaped or misaligned.
Keep in mind that in order to be a good candidate for dental veneers, you must have healthy teeth and gums already. This type of cosmetic dentistry solution is not for those with gum disease or teeth weakened or damaged as a result of decay or other oral health complications.
What Are the Advantages of Porcelain Veneers?
Dental veneers can significantly improve the look of your teeth, restoring your confidence in your smile. Porcelain dental veneers look and feel like your natural teeth, aren’t inflammatory to most people’s gums, are stain-resistant, and as strong as most dental crowns. Of course, however, there are some disadvantages of porcelain veneers that you should discuss with your dentist, too, such as the fact that veneers can be difficult to replace and fix if they are cracked or damaged in the future, the process is irreversible, and porcelain veneers are usually a more expensive type of cosmetic dentistry procedure.
