Porcelain veneers are a great way to fix a stained or otherwise damaged smile and they’re not just for movie stars—people all over the Salt Lake City area are getting porcelain veneers to makeover their smile. They can give you the attractive, natural looking smile you may have wanted for years. But you might still be wondering whether veneers are right for you.
Porcelain is the material of choice for making veneers because it can recreate the natural look of teeth, while providing strength and resilience comparable to natural enamel. When individuals are looking to make slight alterations to the position of their teeth, the color, or the shape of their teeth, porcelain veneers are best suited for these tasks.
Porcelain veneers are a great option for most people who want to improve their smile. Depending on the health of an individual’s teeth, however, this may not be possible for everyone. People who clinch or grind their teeth are generally not the best candidates for porcelain veneers because once the veneer process has taken place they are extremely difficult to replace. Furthermore, if a patient has active gum disease or serious tooth decay, the veneer procedure is probably not right for these people until these issues are treated.
If you’re teeth are generally in good condition, but chipped or perhaps stained from coffee or tea, porcelain veneers are right for you. Veneers represent a more expensive option than bonding or simple teeth whitening, but they are a much more cost-effective investment. Some teeth don’t respond to teeth whitening, but porcelain veneers are custom made for every patient and can drastically improve the appearance of stained teeth. Plus, porcelain veneers don’t stain!
