Many patients that have slightly misaligned teeth, short teeth, smiles with spaces can benefit from veneers instead of traditional braces or other alternative treatments such as Invisalign. Especially if the quirks of your teeth only affect the appearance and not the function. If you have a high decay rate of functional discrepancy veneers may not be the best option. Many cosmetic treatments can help improve how your teeth look without affecting how they work. Many patients have questions about veneers and how they can be used instead of braces.
What are veneers?
Tooth enamel has a tough job. It protects the softer, sensitive parts of your teeth underneath, sometimes known as dentine, as well as the dental pulp. Unfortunately, enamel does not grow back once it has been lost, but this is where veneers come in. Veneers are custom-made porcelain shells that cover up the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can change the shape, size, olor, length, and spacing of smiles. They can strengthen a tooth with thinned enamel or disguise imperfections such as crooked or misaligned teeth. The goal of veneers is to transform the appearance of the teeth to create a natural-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are a life changing affordable option for patients with broken, chipped, misshapened, dark smiles.
Who is a proper candidate for porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are commonly used to correct crooked teeth but may also be used in other situations. They can address:
- Worn natural tooth enamel
- Chipped or cracked front teeth
- Unevenly shaped or short teeth
- Discoloration and staining on the teeth
- Gaps between the teeth
- Teeth that are worn down
