What Can Be Treated With Porcelain Veneers?May. 15 2023
In cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers have become an incredibly popular choice for many patients in the Melville, NY, area. This is for a good reason--these restorations play a vital role in completely transforming a person's smile. They are versatile and a natural-looking solution that can disguise a variety of imperfections within the smile. In fact, porcelain veneers can be used to:
- Disguise gaps between the front teeth
- Cover misaligned teeth without orthodontic treatment
- Camouflage teeth with permanent staining and discoloration
- Restore a tooth that has been chipped or cracked
- Change the shape of a tooth by width or length
When should I consider porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice if you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile and want to make a drastic change with minimal effort. If you have any of the above-mentioned cosmetic concerns, porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution. Furthermore, if you maintain your oral hygiene, these restorations can last up to ten years or longer.
What other options are available?
Cosmetic dentistry alternatives that might be used in lieu of porcelain veneers vary depending on the aesthetic issues you are looking to resolve. For example, if you have one or more misaligned teeth near the front of the smile that is contributing to poor bite alignment, you might want to ask our team about the benefits of undergoing orthodontic treatment. If gaps or chips are a problem, other treatments, such as dental bonding with composite resin materials, may be used to provide same-day repair and treatment. When you schedule a consultation visit with our team, you can discuss all the choices available to you!
