Porcelain veneers to conceal imperfections of the smile

Imperfections near the front of the smile can cause Novi, Michigan, area patients to feel self-conscious about the appearance of their teeth. Chipped, cracked, or gapped teeth might negatively impact one’s self-esteem and confidence. Patients of the area who need cosmetic treatments to address these issues may want to take the time to learn more about porcelain veneers, readily available at Mahajan Dentistry.

What are porcelain veneers?

Cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers continue to be popular solutions to imperfect anterior (front) teeth. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain custom-fabricated for a patient. They are made to look like the existing teeth and are bonded over the smile’s imperfections for proper coverage. Because porcelain is a material that looks very close to natural tooth enamel, it is an excellent material for dental restorations. Many restorations used in dentistry utilize porcelain and ceramics because of their appearance.

Why patients choose porcelain veneers

There are many alternatives available to patients when repairing or rejuvenating the teeth near the front of the smile. Patients with gaps or misaligned teeth might opt instead for orthodontic treatment, while some individuals with minor chips or cracks may consider the benefits of composite resin bonding. Regardless, many patients seeking long-term restoration of a tooth will find that porcelain veneers are a highly desirable option for their needs. Porcelain veneers can last over a decade with proper care and are a significant investment in the smile long-term. These restorations are not subjected to staining as composite resins are, and their placement only takes a few weeks. Many patients will choose veneers over the alternatives.

Dental veneers
Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
