Your smile is an important fixture of your face. If your eyes are the window to your soul, than your smile is the front door. Your teeth help you to bite and chew your food to maintain your nutrition. A healthy mouth even ensures that you can properly enunciate your words. Healthy teeth that look so can help you to look more youthful and confident. Sometimes, healthy teeth can have an appearance that makes you feel a bit insecure about the way you look. If you have any smile issues that make you feel less confident, porcelain veneers can restore your confidence by improving the size, shape, and appearance of your teeth.
The biggest advantage that porcelain veneers have over other types of cosmetic dentistry is that they can correct most types of cosmetic dental concerns in one swoop. Veneers, which are extremely thin shells of porcelain, are permanently bonded onto the front surfaces of your teeth. Veneers can be used to recreate a brand new look for one or more individual teeth or for creating a more attractive and uniform overall smile.
Veneers can be a great fix for issues such as severe teeth stains, chipped tooth edges, cracked tooth surfaces, and many others. Porcelain veneers can also address slight tooth misalignment by helping to reshape the contours of the teeth. By utilizing veneers, your teeth may appear straighter even without orthodontic treatment.
If veneers are used to create a more symmetrical contour for your teeth, it can help to improve your bite’s function. By fortifying your tooth structure and restoring your teeth’s strength and integrity, it can help your bite to function better. A smoother, even bite can help you to avoid issues such as bruxism TMJ disorder, tooth decay, and tooth damage that can be caused by uneven wear and tear.
