When it comes to the color, shape, or alignment of the teeth, porcelain veneers can correct a variety of problems.
Advancements in cosmetic dentistry mean that restorations are more natural-looking and comfortable than ever before. One of the most popular choices is veneers. These thin porcelain laminates cover the surface of the teeth to create a new, flawless layer. Here, the dental team at the office of Ronald L Morse DDS, PC offer the top three reasons people decide on veneers to completely transform their smile.
For stains and discolorations
Whitening is another popular cosmetic dentistry procedure. Unfortunately, certain stains and anatomical situations do not respond well to the bleaching agents. For instance, people whose teeth turned gray after taking certain antibiotics do not typically notice any results from whitening. If the gums have receded, the exposed root enamel will also not respond to whitening treatments. The bleaching agents do not have any effect on existing dental work, such as fillings or crowns. For these common reasons, your Lakewood cosmetic dentist will likely suggest veneers to evenly lighten the shade of your teeth.
For size and length
If your teeth have become worn down over time or have grown in unevenly in length or shape, veneers can also help solve this problem. By layering the veneer over the existing teeth, each tooth will be proportional and symmetrical while still retaining a natural appearance.
For crooked teeth
Moderate misalignment can also be corrected with veneers. Teeth that overlap or have small spaces between them can be corrected this way. Severe crowding should be fixed with orthodontics first; veneers may be the finishing touch they need.
With proper maintenance, veneers can last more than a decade. If you think your teeth might benefit from these revolutionary restorations, contact Ronald L Morse DDS, PC, your Lakewood cosmetic dentist, to learn more about revitalizing your smile!
