How often do you smile?
If it’s a little less because of a stained tooth or other dental problem, then you could be missing out on the benefits of a bright smile. With so many treatments available, it takes little time out of your busy schedule to attain the smile you know you deserve. One popular treatment that has enhanced the lives of thousands of patients is the porcelain veneer. Discover how one-hour veneers have the power to fix your smile and change your life for the better.
What Does a Porcelain Veneer Do For You?
Dental veneers are an excellent treatment for those who have one or multiple teeth that are degrading their smiles. By simply bonding with the front surface of your tooth, the veneer accomplishes two key things – strengthens it and improves the way it looks.
Understanding How a Veneer Works – The House Siding Analogy
An excellent analogy to illustrate how a dental veneer works is that it’s similar to the siding on a house. By looking at it, you have no idea what the actual condition of the walls and structure is – you only know that there is a bright, beautiful outer shell that is making the house look perfect. Well, that’s exactly what porcelain veneers do for your smile – they hide the imperfections and appear to the world as a fully-functional and natural-looking tooth.
Case Study – Mary Finally Decides to Get Porcelain Veneers
Mary had lived her entire life in Georgia. As a lifelong smoker and coffee drinker, severe staining had taken hold of her front bottom teeth. She tried the whitening products over the counter but nothing seemed to work. The whole problem started around her 50th birthday, and since then, she’s had an uneasy feeling every time she smiles. Admittedly, she even started smiling with her lips closed to hide her teeth.
The more she considered it, the more she realized that there were really just two teeth that were causing the problem. These two bottom teeth were much darker than the rest and were the culprits behind Mary’s smile being darker than it once was. It was really bothering her and she hoped there was a reasonable solution. She decided to contact her local dentist, Dr. Shah, to peruse her options.
Dr. Shah and Mary seemed to hit it off – she felt comfortable in the office and was excited to finally explain her situation. As she continued on about how she feels her smile is ruined by these two teeth, one suggestion really hit home – she could get new porcelain veneers in a single visit. From the moment she heard it, this seemed like the treatment for her. Covering these problematic teeth with new porcelain veneers was the optimal way to restore her smile!
A Thin Shell with a Wide Range of Uses
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin, yet also very strong. The veneer treatment can be perfect for those who suffer from a wide range of dental problems. Are your teeth cracked, chipped, decayed, or badly stained? A porcelain veneer may be the optimal solution for all of these conditions. Here are some of the most common uses of porcelain veneers:
- Alter the size or shape of your teeth
- Add strength and durability to a tooth
- Improve the color and aesthetics of a tooth
- Hide teeth that are worn down, chipped, or broken
- Close gaps in between teeth
