Veneers: 3 Reasons To Cover Your Teeth

smileperfecteyebrowsWhen you choose porcelain veneers, you making the decision to cover a portion of your teeth (the part others can see when you smile). For some, veneers are unnecessary – for instance, if you have minor staining and simply want a whiter smile, whitening will work beautifully. However, there are times when camouflaging your smile is your best option. Consider a few reasons to consult with us on this topic, so we may steer you toward a truly lovely smile.

Reason #1: They Need Multiple Improvements

We often recommend porcelain veneers for a patient whose goals cannot be met with any other individual cosmetic treatment. Want a whiter smile, filled spaces, improved tooth shape, camouflaged texture, and a straighter looking grin? Skip the combination of treatments and address everything at once with veneers.

Reason #2: Whitening Is Insufficient

If teeth whitening is simply insufficient when it comes to your type of staining – this often occurs due to antibiotic use or significant dental trauma – then you may wish to rely on porcelain veneers. They will cover up the staining and transform your smile into a vibrant white feature (all with a beautiful, lifelike finish).

Reason #3: You Don’t Like Your Tooth Shape

If you don’t like the shape of your teeth – particularly if you want them to appear longer or wider (often to fill spaces), porcelain veneers may provide you with the improvements you seek. We will customize the shape as well as the dimensions to ensure your new smile fully enhances and harmonizes with your other facial features.
