Good things take effort, and sometimes, that includes improving the overall appearance of your smile. The good news, though, is that cosmetic smile improvement is often simpler than you might believe. For many patients, even seemingly complex smile improvement can be made simple, particularly with porcelain veneers. If you want to make your smile beautiful, Porcelain Veneers in Austin, TX may be the most convenient and effective option.
As their name suggests, veneers are wafer-thin “coverings” for the front surfaces of one or more teeth. Each veneer is hand-crafted to match a tooth’s unique size, shape, and appearance, and because they’re so thin (typically about .5mm or less), preparing the tooth doesn’t require much work. Your dentist can carefully sculpt a sheen of enamel from the front of a tooth to accommodate the veneer, then bond the veneer securely in place.
The beauty of veneers is not just their minimally-invasive nature, but also their uncanny ability to mimic healthy, natural tooth structure. Dental porcelain is tinted according to your teeth’s specific shade and hue, and the porcelain is semi-translucent to give it the same luminescence as natural tooth enamel. Like other porcelain restorations, veneers can offer the most lifelike cosmetic results in a short period of time.
Because veneers are bonded to the fronts of your teeth, they can address a multitude of different blemishes, including stubborn teeth stains, chipped teeth, slightly crooked or oddly spaced teeth, and more. Even if you exhibit several different types of blemishes on more than one tooth at the same time, veneers may still be able to completely makeover your smile in just one procedure.
