If perceived cosmetic flaws affect your smile and cause self-esteem issues, porcelain veneers is a solution that might interest you. They are discreet, cost-effective, long-lasting, and aesthetically pleasing.
Some of the cosmetic issues porcelain veneers can correct include:
- Discolored teeth: Porcelain veneers even better than bleaching natural teeth, because they do not require regular touchups to maintain their shade and can last up to a decade without losing their whiteness.
- Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth: Slight cracks and chips on front teeth with nothing more than an impact on your appearance may not merit a sophisticated and expensive treatment like tooth replacement. Porcelain veneers will help keep the costs low and retain most of your healthy tooth structure while perfectly achieving the cosmetic concern you obtained them for.
- Misshapen teeth: Cosmetic or functional flaws of the front teeth can impact how they perform. Placing a veneer on the front side, gives the tooth a more natural, desirable shape that doesn’t compromise your teeth’s overall shade.
- Teeth misalignment: Overlapping and crooked teeth are among the most common cosmetic concerns treated at dental offices. Veneers can be used as both a makeshift solution and long-term treatment depending on budget, preference, and severity of your problem. Veneers are of course cheaper and can be adjusted to give you exactly the look you want.
