What Porcelain Veneers Can Do for You

Porcelain veneers are one of the most powerful cosmetic dentistry tools. With just one procedure, you can improve the appearance of:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Crooked teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Small teeth
  • Poorly shaped teeth

Not only can it improve the appearance of these common cosmetic complaints, but it also has many benefits over other options.

While teeth whitening can help with discolored teeth, it is limited by the natural color of your tooth enamel. But with veneers, your teeth can be as white as you want, which makes them a great choice if your natural tooth enamel is dull, yellow, or brown in color.

For chipped and worn teeth, dental bonding is one option, but veneers are more attractive and more durable than bonding.

Some people think that the only way to correct gaps in your smile, crooked teeth, or rotated teeth is with orthodontics. However, orthodontics can take months to achieve results, while veneers take weeks, which is why they’re often called “instant orthodontics.”

Veneers can also reshape your teeth to give you the exact size and shape of teeth you want for your smile. They can enlarge small teeth, whether you have naturally small teeth or even retained baby teeth. Veneers can also reshape poorly shaped teeth, including peg laterals. You can have your teeth tall or wide, and give them a square or rounded appearance.
