When it comes to your smile, appearances actually do matter. Irregularities in your teeth and gums can sometimes indicate a dental disease that needs to be addressed. Even if infection isn’t imminent, a number of cosmetic factors can cause you to lose confidence in your smile, which can deprive you of the many benefits of smiling. If you have more than one stained, chipped, cracked, or oddly spaced tooth, than the task of beautifying your smile can seem daunting. Luckily, with the use of porcelain veneers from your Lafayette dentist, you can bring your smile back to life in as little two visits.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental porcelain that are custom-designed in a dental laboratory to fit over the fronts of your afflicted teeth. With a focus on your smile’s appearance, veneers are usually reserved for the areas of your smile that are visible when you eat, speak, and smile. While there are a number of procedures that address specific aesthetic issues, porcelain veneers allow you to address multiple blemishes on more than one tooth simultaneously, eliminating the need to correct one problem at a time. Because veneers require minimal tooth manipulation, they are often the preferable choice over dental crowns. The porcelain is tinted to match your tooth color, and is crafted to mimic the light reflecting properties of your natural tooth enamel. After your procedure is completed, porcelain veneers can grant you the smile you’ve always wanted.
