Find out what porcelain veneers can and can’t do for your smile.
Our cosmetic dentist in Novi, MI, Dr. Neil Blavin, offers a range of treatments to handle everything from minor problems to more serious imperfections. One of the most common options among these cosmetic approaches are veneers, a treatment that can improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or structurally damaged. Read on to learn more about what this treatment can do for you!
Dental Veneers are Made from Porcelain
While some people worry that a dental restoration will stand out from the rest of their smile, veneers are made from porcelain, a material that bears a striking resemblance to tooth enamel. Furthermore, this ultra-thin, high-grade porcelain is also matched to the shade of your teeth before it’s applied.
Rest assured that here at our office in Novi, MI, our dentist works hard to make sure that your veneers stand out in only the best ways!
Veneers Can Hide Many Cosmetic Flaws
Since these porcelain shells are directly bonded to the front of your teeth they can hide a wide range of problems by altering a tooth’s overall shape, length, alignment, and color. You could be right for veneers if you are looking to,
- Cover gaps between teeth
- “Realign” a slightly crooked tooth
- Improve minor bite problems
- Enhance a tooth’s color
- Cover cracks and chips
- Lengthen a worn tooth
- Improve a misshapen or malformed tooth
- Make your smile more symmetrical and even
Of course, veneers can’t fix all issues. If you are dealing with a serious malocclusion (“bad bite”) or if you have issues that require braces, then veneers will not be your best option.
You Don’t Need to Cover Your Full Smile
While there are some people who will benefit from getting a full set of veneers, remember that even those you just have a couple of flawed teeth can still benefit from this treatment option. After all, veneers are always customized to fit your unique needs, and we can discuss which teeth could benefit the most from receiving work.
