Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. When done by an experienced West Roxbury dentist, customized veneers create a white, bright, straight, flawless smile that looks natural. It’s especially exciting to discover that veneers can fix the very aesthetic complaint you’ve had for a long time.
Here are just some of the problems West Roxbury porcelain veneers can fix:
1. Narrow Smile
If your canine teeth or pre-molars are situated behind the teeth in front of them, this crowding can give you a narrow-looking smile. People will see dark space in the corners of your mouth instead of teeth.
When your smile makeover includes porcelain veneers, these super-thin shields are custom-designed in size, shape, color, and thickness. When bonded to the front of your teeth, veneers build up your smile into the right proportions.
Symmetry is all about balance. If your smile is unbalanced, there’s a reason for it. Quite often, a person’s smile can look asymmetrical because of worn teeth on one side of the mouth. This characteristic can create the appearance of a crooked smile. Some teeth may look longer on one side of the mouth than the other if you have a habit of grinding and clenching your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are uniquely designed for every tooth so they look amazing on their own and, most importantly, as a whole.
If your teeth are stained, teeth whitening may not be a viable solution. Some people are born with naturally yellowish teeth, others have thin tooth enamel that allows the color of dentin to show through. And some patients have tetracycline stains from antibiotic use as a child that calcified in and marred their permanent teeth before they even erupted.
The best solution for covering permanent tooth discoloration is porcelain veneers. Everything you dislike about your smile just goes away under the strong, beautiful, customized veneers.
If your teeth are crooked, gapped, or misaligned and you don’t want braces, porcelain veneers can be carefully developed to conceal these imperfections. Instead of the time, effort, and discomfort of wearing braces, you can get a straight smile with veneers in just two visits to your West Roxbury cosmetic dentist.
5. Oddly Shaped Teeth
All permanent teeth do not erupt perfectly from your gums. Some may not erupt fully and instead look short. You may have oversized front teeth. Some teeth may not erupt at all. Whatever kind of misshapen, irregular, or oddly shaped teeth you have, living with this kind of imperfection can make you feel self-conscious.
Porcelain veneers conceal the obvious. Teeth can be lengthened, adjusted, and carefully metered out so they complement each other and give you a beautiful smile that looks natural.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile and your teeth and gums are healthy, there is a good chance that porcelain veneers can be the permanent smile makeover solution you’ve been looking for.
