We offer a number of cosmetic treatments to address various issues with a smile’s appearance. Invisalign can correct misalignment without metal braces and teeth whitening can remove discoloration from the surface of the teeth. However, what if you have multiple cosmetic complaints? We can actually use a single restoration, porcelain veneers, to correct a number of esthetic issues. How do porcelain veneers improve smiles?
Frequently Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers
Question: Can veneers address permanent teeth stains?
Answer: Yes. A very thin layer of porcelain is bonded to the front of the teeth. We can use them to mask intrinsic stains, which are stains that form below the enamel and may not respond well to traditional whitening techniques. In addition to restorations, we can also use dental bonding to mask discoloration.
Question: Will they help a malformed or damaged tooth?
Answer: Yes. We can use them to reshape malformed teeth, address minor chips, or lengthen worn down teeth. Since they are made from lifelike porcelain and shaded to better match your teeth, the restorations look natural. In addition, porcelain is very strong, so your new restoration can withstand powerful bite forces.
Question: What if I have misalignment?
Answer: If you have uneven teeth we can use restorations to correct the appearance of them. However, this is only for very minor alignment problems. For more serious misalignment we can use Invisalign or Six Month Smiles to improve your alignment and oral health.
Question: What about gaps between my teeth?
Answer: If you have gaps between your teeth we can use a restoration to close them. In addition, we can also use dental bonding for a more cost effective way to close gaps.
