What Can Porcelain Veneers Address?

 In Veneers

Attaining a beautiful smile can be easier than ever thanks to porcelain veneers. The Woodlands dentist, Dr. Dernick, can provide veneers to patients who need to address imperfections with the teeth quickly and easily. Crafted from a thin layer of porcelain, veneers are made to match the patient’s existing teeth and cover a natural tooth that may need to be improved in appearance. There are a few concerns that porcelain veneers can address.

Size
Veneers can be used to change the length or shape of a tooth within a smile. This is done by creating a larger veneer and bonding to the front of the natural tooth.

Shape
Teeth that are unusual in shape may benefit from a porcelain veneer. The veneer can be made to the ideal shape and then placed on the problem tooth.

Color
Some teeth may not respond well to teeth whitening products and treatments. In cases such as these, patients may use veneers to improve the color of their existing smile.

Alignment
Years of orthodontic work doesn’t seem to make sense for patients who have a single tooth that is misaligned. Using porcelain veneers, Dr. Dernick can bond the restoration onto a tooth that needs to be straightened as a quick and easy solution.

In general, porcelain veneers can change the overall appearance of one or more teeth for a patient. They can be used in conjunction with other restorations to improve a smile for a complete smile makeover offered by The Woodlands Dental Group.

Veneers are easy to care for, and function just as your natural teeth would. They can last approximately ten years or longer with proper care and maintenance, which requires regular six-month visits to your dentist. Cavities can still form underneath porcelain veneers, so visiting your dentist for your necessary appointments and examinations may decrease your risk of developing decay and dental caries.
