How Can Porcelain Veneers Improve Your Entire Smile?
Every smile has unique characteristics that affect its form and function. While these features are often cosmetic in nature and may not negatively impact dental health, it is extremely common to desire a more uniform look and structure. Our Houston cosmetic dentist Wayde Fawcett, DDS, offers decades of experience delivering effective treatment options to correct perceived tooth imperfections, in particular with porcelain veneers. This customizable solution can improve your entire smile with beautiful, natural-looking results and can solve a wide range of cosmetic dental issues, including:
- Crooked, crowded, or uneven teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Worn or short teeth
- Excessive or uneven gums
- Asymmetrical smile
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Aged or dull teeth
- Gaps and mild misalignments
Porcelain veneers can address concerns like these, acting as several cosmetic treatments all in one. They have the ability to beautifully brighten and straighten your smile with immediate results, often in just one to two visits. Deeply stained teeth can be efficiently whitened with this restoration, and “instant orthodontics” with veneers can fix crooked/uneven teeth without the need for lengthy orthodontic care. For patients who wish to dramatically transform their smile, porcelain veneers may also be combined with a smile makeover or full mouth rehabilitation to completely repair and redesign additional dental concerns.
Despite the big changes to your smile, the imprint of porcelain veneers is quite small. Composed of ceramic material, the very thin shells are bonded to the front surface of a tooth and feel similar to natural teeth. With the help of porcelain veneers, patients can often look 10-15 years younger and, thanks to their durable dental porcelain material, can enjoy the renewed outcome for 10 to 15 years (or longer) if cared for properly.
