Most of us consider smiling, talking and eating to be simple tasks. However, when you have missing, cracked or gapped teeth, these simple everyday things become embarrassing, frustrating and burdensome. Thankfully, your dentist can help. Porcelain veneers provide you with an effective option for rejuvenating your smile and restoring your mouth’s natural functions.
Porcelain veneers are ceramic coverings that look and function like natural teeth, fitting over gapped, stained or cracked teeth like a protective shell. In most cases, dentists can place veneers over your teeth after reducing the facial side of the tooth.
Porcelain veneers can solve a variety of dental issues, including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Chipped, broken or misshapen teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
Made from an incredibly durable material, veneers bring beauty and function back to your mouth. Porcelain resists staining and decaying better than normal teeth while retaining a natural look and feel.
With your new veneers, you can go back to eating and drinking just as you would with your normal teeth. Like normal teeth, you should care for your veneers with proper brushing and be flossing to maintain their natural white shine.
