Your teeth often can become damaged, discolored or misshapen to a point that a normal tooth whitening procedure would be unable to return to an aesthetically pleasing state. In this type of case our Williamsville cosmetic dentists will prepare to fit your teeth with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that we sculpt into the desired tooth shape and are tinted with careful precision to match the surrounding teeth. With properly created porcelain veneers they will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth, they also can be more resilient than your natural tooth enamel.
If teeth whitening isn’t a viable solution and you’d like to avoid having a crown placed, porcelain veneers may be something to consider. Unlike teeth whitening, veneers don’t actually remove stains from the teeth; they cover them up instead. They can also be used to successfully mask other flaws like small gaps between the teeth, discolored teeth, uneven teeth or misaligned teeth. Porcelain veneers are considered a key component of any smile makeover, they also repair your teeth in a more subtle manner. Often mismatched teeth can be faced with porcelain veneers to look more symmetrical. Teeth which project too far forward can be reshaped and veneers can be applied to create a smoother arc to your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are custom-designed for each patient. Dr. Yetto will examine the affected teeth to ensure that the correct veneers are designed. Impressions and X-rays may also be used to facilitate the design process. The goal is to create wafer-thin veneers that fit as naturally as possible over the teeth. When they are correctly designed, it’s virtually impossible to tell that they have been placed. Stains and other imperfections will be gone, but the teeth themselves will look completely natural.
Porcelain Veneers Can Correct:
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth
- Gaps between your teeth
- Mildly crooked teeth
- Dark, yellow or stained teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Misshapen teeth
One additional benefit of porcelain veneers is they are comprised of highly resilient porcelain. It not only responds like your natural teeth do to whitening and other colorants, Porcelain can be tinted to match the teeth surrounding them.
