How Porcelain Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Many people find that feeling good about their physical appearance is related to the state of their smile. Some need multiple procedures to upgrade the health, function, and appearance of their teeth and gums. Others, however, can benefit from minor adjustments to their natural teeth. Veneers – thin porcelain shells applied to the front teeth – are a great option for dental patients needing less significant restorations to boost their smile.

How Can Porcelain Veneers Improve My Smile?

There are three main ways in which porcelain veneers can provide you with a brighter, more attractive smile:

  1. They can improve the shade of your teeth. Veneers can remedy issues with teeth that don’t respond to whitening, or teeth in which the enamel has worn away, exposing the yellow-tinged dentin underneath.
  2. They can improve the shape of your teeth. Veneers fit over the front part of your teeth and provide a solution for an unusually small or non-standard shaped tooth. Once the veneers are applied, those teeth will resemble standard-shaped, natural teeth more closely.
  3. They can fix problems with rotated teeth. Dentists can reshape your rotated tooth before applying the veneer, allowing it to function and look better.

Veneers require natural teeth to possess a certain amount of natural structure. Teeth with failing tooth structure may need a crown or other restoration.

“Porcelain veneers are a great way to improve mild to moderate issues with the appearance of your smile,” says Dr. Carol Ford, a cosmetic dentist practicing in central Phoenix and the founder of Dr. Carol Ford & Associates. “Our practice can provide a comprehensive exam and advise you on the best options for your individual situation.”
