How to Get a Brilliant Smile Without Braces or Surgery

If you’re looking to transform your smile without the use of braces or surgery, porcelain veneers may be the answer. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry procedure that involves wafer thin shells of tooth colored material designed to be placed over the surface of the teeth that show when you smile. Each custom made shell is bonded to the front of a tooth, which completely changes the tooth’s appearance, color, shape, size or length.

Veneers can be used to fix a variety of cosmetic dentistry issues:
  • Worn enamel
  • Rotated, uneven or short teeth
  • Permanent stains, such as those caused by antibiotics administered in childhood
  • Teeth that are dissimilar in color or contour

Porcelain veneers are designed to resist stains better than natural teeth and other restorations. Veneers appear natural because they mimic the way light reflects off of the surface of the teeth.

There are many benefits to porcelain veneers, including:
  • They look like your natural teeth
  • Highly resistant to coffee, tea or cigarette stains
  • They can be an alternative to time-consuming orthodontic treatment
  • Durable and long-lasting

Continuing to follow good oral hygiene procedures will also help to lengthen the lifespan of your veneers. Continue to brush and floss twice daily, and maintain regular dental visits for cleanings and examination.
