Are veneers a good idea for disguising imperfections in my smile?
Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a wide variety of dental problems, including crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, and uneven tooth surfaces. They are also a good option for patients who have had extensive dental work done in the past and want to improve the appearance of their smile. Many patients speak to Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry in Azusa, California, asking, “are veneers a good idea?”
What is a porcelain veneer?
A porcelain veneer is a thin, tooth-colored shell that is custom-made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. It is made from dental porcelain, a type of ceramic material that is both strong and durable. It can last many years with proper care and looks completely natural. The dentist ensures that the custom veneer is made to match the shape, size, and color of existing teeth so it can seamlessly integrate into the smile.
Why a patient might consider porcelain veneers
There are many reasons why a patient might consider porcelain veneers. Some of the most common reasons include:
- To improve the appearance of their teeth
- To restore their teeth to their natural color
- To fix chips or cracks in their teeth
- To cover up discoloration and permanent staining
- To disguise gaps between the front teeth
- To disguise misalignment of teeth
Are porcelain veneers a good idea for my smile?
Only a qualified dentist can answer this question. Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry can examine the patient’s teeth and discuss their goals and concerns to see if porcelain veneers are the best option. In some cases, other treatments such as braces or dental implants may better suit the patient’s needs. However, for many patients, porcelain veneers are a great way to achieve a beautiful and natural-looking smile in a short period of time.
