How Porcelain Veneers Can Improve your Smile
- Posted on: May 30 2017
The smiles that you admire were most likely made to look the way they do. It is rare to meet a person whose teeth are brilliantly white, perfectly straight, and shaped in such a way that the face is in total harmony. These nuances of a gorgeous smile are not always handed out by Mother Nature, but they are also not hard to come by. If your smile could use some artistic aide, porcelain veneer treatment may be one of our recommendations.
What’s Possible with Porcelain Veneers
There is a reason why porcelain veneers are a go-to treatment for cosmetic dentists everywhere: they do a lot in a short amount of time. This sophisticated technique requires a high level of attention, which is why the best results are possible with an accredited cosmetic dentist like Dr. Flax. On a basic level, this treatment can improve:
- Uneven or excessive wear from grinding or misalignment.
- Heavy staining or internal discoloration.
- Damage such as cracks or fractures.
- Chips and jagged edges of teeth.
- Overlapping, gaps, or other spacing concerns.
Problems such as these can be disguised behind veneers made from porcelain or other materials. The value of porcelain, especially in the hands of an accredited cosmetic dentist, is that this material can be manipulated to resemble natural enamel so closely that the smile looks authentically beautiful.
A Closer Look at Veneers
One of the reasons that porcelain veneers are preferable is because this material reflects light in the same way as enamel. Porcelain is also more translucent than other popular choices for veneers, such as composite resin. This means that the edges of veneers will be see-through, lending to natural appeal. Because each veneer is only about fingernail-thickness, treatment is quite conservative. Finally, porcelain is even more resistant to stains than enamel.
Your smile can be all you would like it to be. We understand that making the decision to have porcelain veneers made is important and can feel overwhelming. Patients of our Atlanta cosmetic dentistry office are given multiple opportunities to preview their new smile, including modern imaging techniques and temporary veneers to wear for a short time before the progression toward final restorations.
