When was the last time you proudly posed for a picture? Does it feel like ages? If so, could tooth imperfections be to blame? As they age, many people find themselves feeling more and more self-conscious about their smiles. That could be due to inconsistencies in the shape or size of teeth, obvious signs of wear along the edges, minor gaps between teeth, or severe staining and discoloration. Fortunately, in most cases, porcelain veneers make a fast and comprehensive way to address most smile imperfections, while also helping to reveal beautiful and bright smiles. So, if you are ready to start smiling confidently again, or perhaps even for the first time ever, why not talk to your cosmetic dentist about how porcelain veneers could help you?
What Cosmetic Issues Are Causing You Concern?
The first step in devising any cosmetic dental treatment plan is first talking candidly with your dentist about your causes for concern. If your only problem is severe staining, for instance, the dentist might recommend professional teeth whitening treatment, which is often a fast and affordable way to brighten the smile.
That said, for more comprehensive issues, veneers are often the best option.
Did You Know Veneers Could Help?
Veneers can help to address inconsistencies in the size or shape of the teeth, as well as jagged edges caused by general wear or even teeth grinding. Porcelain veneers can also be crafted to help hide minor spaces between the teeth, though they should not be used as an alternative to orthodontic treatment in the case of any functional alignment problems.
Perhaps best of all, porcelain veneers can last for many years when they receive proper care, making them a great long-term investment in the smile.
