Here’s Why Veneers Might Work for Your Smile

At some point in their lives, most people develop the desire to improve their smiles’ appearance. Perhaps one or more teeth have stained, or have chipped edges that impact your entire smile. Sometimes, cosmetic concerns can be even more severe, and can occur at the same time to create an even bigger impact on your smile’s appearance. Fortunately, we offer a wide range of cosmetic solutions at our Ankeny, IA, dental office to address any issue you might have with your smile. To help make your treatment as effective and conservative as possible, we may suggest utilizing custom porcelain veneers to improve all or nearly all of your smile’s appearance at once.

They can do more than you think

Porcelain veneers are popular cosmetic dental options for several important reasons. One of which is their ability to correct multiple different types of smile concerns with equal effectiveness. A veneer is a custom-designed, super thin shell of porcelain that your dentist designs to closely mimic your tooth’s healthy, natural appearance. To fix your tooth, your dentist bonds the veneer to its front surface, creating a new, blemish-free appearance in nearly an instant. Because they’re made to transform your tooth’s entire appearance, veneers can effectively correct a multitude of concerns, including severe discoloration, chipped or cracked teeth, minor spacing issues, and much more.

They’re more conservative than some options

With their ability to do so much good for your smile, it can seem like porcelain veneers are an extensive treatment option. However, veneers aren’t just versatile, they’re also minimally invasive, and can be bonded to your teeth with minimal preparation to their structures. Accommodating the thin shells of porcelain only requires sculpting a minimal amount of enamel from the appropriate teeth’s surfaces. By minimizing the extent of alterations to your tooth structure, veneers help you preserve your healthy, natural smile more effectively.

They blend in seamlessly with your healthy smile

While the benefits to your smile and the health of your teeth are significant, what makes porcelain veneers especially attractive to most patients is their ability to closely mimic healthy, natural teeth. Custom-designed to match your teeth’s unique color, appearance, and texture, your veneers can successfully improve your smile while blending in almost seamlessly with its natural appearance.
