If you long for a beautiful smile, or even if you’re just not happy with the general appearance of your natural teeth, Evolve Dentistry have plenty of options to assist you on your smile transformation! One of the options available is porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers might be able to give you a cost-effective and affordable option to dramatically improving the appearance of your teeth, without the need for surgical procedures such as implants. They act like false fingernails, covering your natural teeth to hide and correct imperfections. Tooth preparation requirements areoften minimal, the application process is painless, and the veneers are designed to be long term and are usually replaced every 10-15 years.
Here are four reasons to consider veneers:
1. To improve the look of discoloured or stained teeth
Your teeth may be discoloured or stained due to an inherited condition or from old fillings. As you age, your teeth tend to become more yellow in colour, and some drugs can cause greying.
Veneers are colour-matched to blend with your other natural teeth, leaving you with a fresh, whiter natural smile that doesn’t look false.
2. To improve the look of damaged teeth
It’s very common for teeth to become chipped and damaged through trauma or simply by wear and tear, especially if you tend to grind them in your sleep. Sometimes, teeth may be oddly shaped, making your smile look lopsided.
Veneers can cover some very minor abnormalities, making your teeth more evenly and attractively shaped.
3. To disguise teeth that are too small or short
If you have front teeth that are too short and are consequently disproportionate to your lips or gums, veneers can sometimes be used to make the teeth look longer and improve the look of your mouth.
4. To improve the look of poorly spaced or misaligned teeth
Very small imperfections, such as a minor gap between the two front teeth, can be effectively disguised with the application of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers can sometimes provide a great solution for problems such as discoloured or stained teeth, misaligned or slightly damaged teeth, but there are also a number of other options that could be suitable for yousuch as braces, tooth whitening or cosmetic bonding. Ask the experts at Evolve Dentistry for more information on how porcelain veneers could improve your smile or to discuss alternatives if veneers are not suitable in your case.
