What Porcelain Veneers Can Do for Your Smile

woman pondering wonderful smileDo you have a severely blemished tooth, or several teeth with multiple cosmetic imperfections? Addressing a single stained, chipped, oddly-spaced, or otherwise unsightly tooth is rather straight-forward; cover the tooth’s imperfection while preserving your smile’s aesthetic uniformity. Improving your smile may mean a simple teeth-whitening treatment, a cosmetic dental bonding, or a porcelain dental crown, depending on your needs. For more complex smile improvement needs, however, your Polk City cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ryan Hussong, may recommend porcelain veneers.

A Focus on Aesthetics

The point of cosmetic dentistry is to improve your smile’s beauty while disturbing as little healthy tooth structure as possible. Undergoing several different treatments, one for each of your blemished teeth, may wind up negating that goal. Porcelain veneers, which are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are custom-crafted to fit the fronts of your teeth, are designed to cover one or more of your teeth to provide your smile a new visage without the need for extensive dental work. After preparing your teeth by removing a minimal amount of tooth enamel (to accommodate the veneers), Dr. Hussong will carefully bond the veneers to the front surfaces of your teeth.

The Beauty of Diversity

Veneers are custom –created specifically for your smile, and the porcelain they’re crafted from is specially layered to mimic your natural teeth’s light-reflecting abilities. Their careful construction and diverse application make porcelain veneers the perfect finishing touch for most smile makeover procedures, which often involve revamping your smile’s beauty, health, and function through a series of prescribed treatments.
