Porcelain veneers are a great option to completely transform your smile, giving you both strength and resilience comparable to your Ritzau-Dentistnatural teeth. If you’ve been waiting for the right treatment, consider porcelain veneers at your next visit to the dentist. Read more to find out if these porcelain transformers are right for you!

  1. You have chipped, fractured, or broken teeth

Porcelain veneers are one option to repair fractured teeth. Whether you bit into something too hard, or you chipped a tooth in a hockey match, porcelain veneers can be placed on top of the tooth and stained to match the color of the rest of your teeth. The porcelain allows us to mimic the look and feel of your natural teeth, so you won’t have to worry about the new one sticking out.

  1. Your teeth are extremely discolored

If you’ve tried time and time again to whiten your teeth and they have resisted even in-office whitening treatments, porcelain veneers can provide you with a bright, white smile. Often times, teeth that are extremely discolored from within the tooth itself and cannot be whitened, making porcelain veneers the ideal option.

  1. You have gaps, uneven, or misaligned teeth

If you’re teeth are widely spaced and show unsightly gaps, porcelain veneers can transform your smile much quicker than braces. These are a good option if you are looking to fix minor dental issues, because veneers will give more instant results that are resistant to discoloration and staining. Using a thin layer of porcelain, your smile will look brand new as the veneers will custom-fit to your existing teeth.

RitzauDentist-42Within a few weeks, you can transform your smile with just two appointments. During the first appointment, a small amount of your tooth’s surface will be removed to make room for the veneers. Then, an impression of your teeth is taken in order to perfectly customize the veneers to your smile. Once the veneers are produced on your second visit, they are cemented on your teeth and voila, a new smile is born!

Most importantly, seek out a dentist that is well-qualified to prepare and cement your porcelain veneers. Making sure you are given the right amount of care and quality will ensure you receive the best smile transformation possible. You should receive a consultation discussing your options and to see if you are a qualified candidate.
