Cosmetic flaws with your teeth can affect your confidence and cause you embarrassment in social situations. You may feel awkward smiling or laughing if you have misshapen or discolored teeth. At Adler Advanced Dentistry, we want you to feel great about your smile so that when you have that next job interview, first date, or a big meeting, you’ll feel confident that your smile looks its best.
Fortunately, there is an easy, painless way to correct minor cosmetic dental flaws by placing porcelain veneers over your existing teeth. Porcelain veneers are made of thin but extremely durable shells made of porcelain that fit snugly over your existing teeth. Because of their durability, they can withstand cracking, breaking, and even staining to give you a bright, beautiful smile for years.
Porcelain veneers can help with cosmetic dental issues such as:
- Cracks and chips in teeth
- Broken tooth
- Discolored teeth
- Worn down or misshapen teeth
- Gaps in teeth
There are many benefits to using porcelain veneers for your cosmetic dentistry solution. Dr. Adler is able to customize the veneers to match the shade of your existing teeth or even give you brighter shades to enhance your smile. And since the veneer is bonded to your tooth, if you have a cracked or slightly broken tooth the veneer actually helps to reinforce the tooth to prevent further damage. In many instances, porcelain veneers can last for decades before needing to be replaced.
Before any treatment is decided on it’s important to make sure that you’re a candidate for the procedure. While porcelain veneers are a minimally-invasive procedure that nearly anyone can undergo, Dr. Adler will perform a thorough oral health examination to ensure that the treatment will be a safe and effective solution to your concerns.
Ideal candidates for porcelain veneers include those who:
- Have healthy teeth
- Do not currently have gum disease
- Do not grind their teeth
- Have positive and realistic expectations for the outcome
While porcelain veneers are great for covering a number of cosmetic dental flaws there are certain issues which they cannot fix. If you have severely misaligned teeth or a significantly broken tooth, Dr. Adler will recommend other options to help you improve not only the look but the health of your mouth as well.
