Your smile is important to your overall self-confidence, which is why improving it is often an important focus for many patients. Consequently, many aspects of your smile’s appearance, such as the alignment of your teeth, are also connected to the health and function of your bite. Therefore, making over your smile requires ensuring every aspect of your oral health is also improved. With porcelain veneers, your dentist can often create a complete and effective smile makeover while minimizing the number of treatments you must undergo.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of dental porcelain, which your dentist can customize to closely mimic the color, shape, texture, and luminescence of your teeth. Each shell is hand-crafted to the highly precise dimensions of one of your teeth’s front surfaces. Once complete, the veneer can be bonded to your tooth, creating an entirely new, blemish-free face for the tooth.
The Many Issues They Address
The beauty of porcelain veneers is that they completely revitalize the visible portions of your tooth. As such, they can address a wide variety of issues, including cracked or worn teeth, spaces between teeth, and in some cases, minor tooth misalignment. This makes completing your smile’s makeover significantly more convenient and less invasive for your healthy, natural tooth structure.
The Benefits of Veneers
The most notable benefits of porcelain veneers are the improvements they make to your smile’s appearance. But, in many cases, rebuilding or restoring tooth structure also benefits your bite’s function. For instance, a worn tooth or excessive space between teeth can throw your bite off balance, which can lead to issues like bruxism and TMJ disorder. Improving such issues with one or more porcelain veneers can ultimately reduce your risks of such issues, improving your long-term oral health in the process.
