Porcelain veneers are a versatile restoration that can help with various dental concerns. It is one of the more popular restorations offered at Downtown Dental in Los Angeles. Porcelain veneers can be used to accomplish the following goals:
Changing the shape and size of teeth
Many patients may consider veneers for short teeth, misaligned teeth, and teeth that are chipped, broken or have an unusual shape that does not match their current smile.
Change the color of a tooth
Due to deep, dark staining, some teeth may not respond well to teeth whitening and traditional bleaching methods. A tooth that has internal staining and stands out from other teeth may benefit from a porcelain veneer.
Change the alignment of a tooth
When just one or two teeth in a patient’s smile need to be realigned, porcelain veneers can be used instead of expensive, costly orthodontics. The teeth are prepared to allow the veneer to bond to the front of the tooth to hide the imperfections.
Some patients want to overhaul their smile totally. During a smile makeover, porcelain veneers may be used in conjunction with other restorations, such as dental crowns or dental implants.
Porcelain veneers can be used for many issues and are an extremely accessible alternative to other dental treatments.
