Porcelain veneers are shells designed to adhere to individual teeth. They can be used alone or as part of a more comprehensive procedure. Thanks to their versatility, they can be used for cosmetic purposes alone or they can be the last of a series of dental treatments designed to undo the damage caused by an accident. Once the veneers are in place, there are several benefits you can expect to enjoy. Here are a few examples.
Your Teeth are Whiter
One of the nicest things about porcelain veneers is that they can give you the appearance of whiter teeth. This is especially helpful if they are installed after the dentist takes care of any cracks or chips that are present on your slightly yellowed teeth. Thanks to the effect, you will be less self-conscious about your teeth and find it easier to smile when the mood strikes.
Remember that the porcelain can be tinted so the hue of the teeth is perfectly natural. Instead of ending up with an overly bright appearance that sometimes happens when people invest in cheap dentures, the veneers will blend in easily. If the plan is to add veneers to some teeth but not to others, the team will ensure the veneers are tinted to match the rest of your teeth.
There are No Gaps
Since the veneers adhere to the surface of each tooth, they are ideal for eliminating any small gaps found in between two teeth. The veneers have the shape of natural teeth so there are no worries about giving your smile a slightly odd appearance. In fact, your smile will look better than at any time in the past.
Tooth Proportion is Improved
Do you have some teeth that are slightly smaller due to an injury or because that’s the way they came in? You can use veneers to correct the problem. Along with filling in gaps, the veneers can alter the shape and proportion of each tooth. The result is a set of teeth that are more uniform in size and shape. That will certainly give you a reason to smile.
Getting On With Your Day
There are dental procedures that require you rest for at least the remainder of the day. That’s not the case with veneers. Once they are in place and the dentist tells you to go home, it’s possible to do anything you would like. Sedation is not typically used when you are getting veneers alone, so there is no danger of your senses being slightly dulled. Feel free to return to work, go shopping, or engage in any activity that is normally part of your day.
Whether you are getting veneers as a strictly cosmetic solution or you need them as part of a set of procedures performed by an emergency dentist, rest assured that they will do wonders for your teeth’s appearance. Best of all, no one needs to know they are there. Unless you tell people, the natural look of the veneers will have them assuming you have always had perfect teeth.
