3 Signs Porcelain Veneers Are Right For You

If you find yourself checking your smile in the mirror a little too often, you may be considering cosmetic dentistry fixes for your teeth. Porcelain veneers can dramatically improve your smile in a very short window of time. From whitening hard-to-bleach teeth, to straightening a tooth that may be just a little crooked, veneers can act as a catch-all for a variety of cosmetic problems. They are a permanent solution to keep you smiling big and bright. Before you commit to porcelain veneers, check these signs that they are right for you.

You Want a Permanent Fix on Natural Teeth

Porcelain veneers may be a permanent fix, but they are only appropriate for natural teeth. Each set of veneers is designed for your individual mouth. Sometimes, in order to fit the porcelain shells over your teeth, your dentist might have to shape your natural tooth a little. For this reason, only natural teeth can receive veneers. Also, once you get them, you will generally always have them.

You Have Stains Below the Surface of Your Teeth

Veneers do a great job of whitening a smile. This can be particularly useful for patients who have stains below the enamel surface of their teeth. Deep bleaching generally will not sink deep enough to brighten your smile if you have deeply stained or damaged teeth. Veneers are a great option in that situation.

You Want a Celebrity Smile

Veneers can fix a whole host of imperfections all at once. They will give you that mega-watt, celebrity smile that you see on red carpets and in movies. Any cracks or damage or gaps will disappear with veneers. If you find yourself checking the mirror more often after you get yours, it may be because you look spectacular, with your new, dazzling smile.
