For many patients, the greatest benefit of customized porcelain veneers is that they so closely mimic healthy, natural teeth that they’re virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your smile. Once bonded in place, veneers can instantly improve your smile by addressing several different types of blemishes all at once. However, another huge advantage that veneers lend to your smile improvement plan is that they’re often ideal for addressing a wide variety of different concerns. That means many different patients can benefit from lifelike porcelain veneers than most other types of cosmetic smile improvement.
Severe tooth discoloration
Teeth stains are the most common concern when it comes to your smile’s appearance, and in most cases, they can effectively erased with customized teeth-whitening treatment. Sometimes, though, the discoloration that mars your teeth is too severe or intrinsic to be addressed with topical teeth-whitening. If whitening isn’t enough to address your tooth discoloration, then lifelike porcelain veneers may be able to quickly and easily brighten your smile’s appearance.
Multiple chips and worn edges
If you have one tooth with a chipped or worn edge, then fixing it may be as simple as placing tooth bonding (tooth-colored composite resin) on the affected area. However, if you have several teeth that are damaged, each to its own degree, then an appropriate number of porcelain veneers could be a more effective and conservative solution.
Spacing and alignment issues
Teeth that have excessive spaces between them or that are slightly out of alignment with the teeth surrounding them can make your whole smile seem as though it’s crooked. While moderate to severe cases of tooth misalignment often require orthodontic braces or aligners to correct, minor cases spacing and alignment issues can often be corrected more simply with a series of lifelike porcelain veneers.
