Our smiles change as we get older. Changing smiles is not ideal for some, and they want to correct flaws that they were born with or have developed over time.
The team at Marielaina Perrone DDS can help create, restore, and enhance your smile and prevent future dental health issues. Dr. Perrone specializes in cosmetic dentistry, and porcelain veneers are a main treatment she offers.
Porcelain veneers can be placed in as little as two visits to transform your smile fast!
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Your cosmetic dentist will use similar dental porcelain that is used to fabricate porcelain crowns. Porcelain veneers are fingernail-like thin pieces of dental porcelain to modify your teeth’ shape, color, and size. This cosmetic dentistry service allows your dentist to fix any chips, cracks, discolorations, or slight misalignments in your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are also sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics.” In cases of extreme misalignment, porcelain veneers would not be able to make that correction properly without compromising the long-term goal of the restoration.
The best part about porcelain veneers? This cosmetic dentistry procedure can be completed in as few as two (2) dental visits, and the porcelain veneers are individually customized and fabricated to fit your smile. When completed, they will look natural and complement the rest of your smile. The dental porcelain will mimic your natural tooth in translucency as well as the way the light reflects off your smile.
Top 5 Things Porcelain Veneers Can Correct
Porcelain veneers have multiple functions, and they are not just a cosmetic treatment. Even though they are often thought of as such, they are often used when other dental procedures will not do the job properly for a smile.
Below are the five most common things porcelain veneers can correct.
Porcelain Veneers Can Change The Color Of Your Teeth
As we age and consume food and beverage, our smile color will change. It tends to yellow over time. Teeth whitening is the #1 option for a whiter smile. However, in some cases, it is not effective, and in others, there are previous dental restorations that get in the way. Previous fillings, crowns, or bridges will not change color when undergoing teeth whitening procedures.
Veneers can give you a uniformly white smile. The shade of color used can be Hollywood white or a more natural shade to fit your age. You and Dr. Perrone will select the color. Following a quick cosmetic consultation, Dr. Perrone can determine if porcelain veneers are right for your smile.
2. Veneers Can Correct Misaligned Teeth
As we age, our teeth can shift. Even if we had undergone orthodontics as a child, we could still be prone to teeth moving over time. This shifting can ruin an otherwise perfect smile. Some patients do not want to undergo orthodontics due to time and cost. Porcelain veneers can make minor alignment adjustments to present a perfectly aligned smile. Where orthodontics can take months and even years to complete, porcelain veneers get to completion in as little as two weeks.
Porcelain veneers are utilized to hide misalignments in our teeth, along with changing the color.
3. Close Gaps In Teeth
Some tooth gaps are a signature part of people’s smiles. At the same time, others make them feel self-conscious, and they do not smile as much. Veneers can be used to correct those gaps by closing them with the strength and beauty of dental porcelain. Dr. Perrone can design, shape, and fit your custom veneers, so the gaps are no longer noticeable. Again orthodontics could be the solution here, but it could take months if not years to achieve the same cosmetic results.
4. Porcelain Veneers Can Fix Chips In Teeth
Chips and cracks can develop over time, just from general usage. Dr. Perrone recommends porcelain veneers for some patients to correct these issues. Dental bonding is a cheaper option but not a permanent one or a good cosmetic option over the long term. Dental bonding doe not resist staining as porcelain veneers do.
5. Veneers Can Change Size And Shape Of Your Teeth
Custom-made veneers are fabricated to any length or shape. That sounds simple, but it is not. A well-trained, experienced cosmetic dentist is needed for proper design so that the result will be an astounding success.
