A redesign of your smile does not need to be a complete and utter overhaul. Redesigning your smile with porcelain veneers just means addressing the cosmetic issues that may make you feel self-conscious or not confident. Veneers can be completely customized to give you a smile that looks natural to you while also making you feel secure and confident about its appearance. You should be able to look in the mirror and see a smile you love looking back at you. You should be able to take a picture without worries over the way your teeth look. If you cosmetic issues like uneven teeth, cracks, gaps, or anything else that makes you second-guess letting your smile shine, it is time to think about a redesign.
A veneer completely covers up the front of a tooth with a porcelain shell. Each custom-crafted veneer is permanently bonded to the surface of a tooth, covering up any blemish that may affect the tooth’s appearance. To ensure a comfortable and natural finish, your dentist may prepare your tooth by sculpting a small amount of tooth enamel to accommodate the ultra-thin veneer. However, the goal will always be to preserve as much natural tooth as possible.
Using digital imaging technology to capture the precisely accurate tooth measurements, a veneer is created specifically for the tooth that it will be adhered to. Technology can even be used to capture the shade of your teeth to seamlessly blend one or a few veneers in with the rest of your smile. If you are redesigning your entire smile, the shade can be matched and created to fit your ideal smile shade.
Porcelain veneers can address different issues on different teeth because each veneer can be customized for each tooth. Some issues that veneers may be able to help are deep intrinsic stains, cracks, chips, unevenly sized or shaped teeth, or gaps in the smile.
