If you are just considering your options in cosmetic dentistry, you are probably surprised by the many treatments available. If one of your concerns is misaligned or crooked teeth, you may already know that there are traditional solutions, such as straightening, but also some surprisingly fast and effective options, too. At Martin Dentistry in Stockton, CA we are excited to offer patients many unique answers to misalignment, including the use of porcelain veneers for straighter teeth.
What Are Dental Veneers?
To understand how you might use porcelain veneers for straighter teeth, it helps to understand veneers in the first place. As your preferred dentist in Stockton, we might suggest dental veneers if you have mild misalignment. This is because veneers are thin, but incredibly strong, shells of dental porcelain custom made for your needs. They will look exactly like your surrounding teeth, even being the same color. However, they will be bonded to your chosen teeth to mask their flaws.
Your teeth will have to be prepared for the veneers, and this means removing enough enamel to make room for the veneer. Each shell is fitted flawlessly to the tooth, so each tooth is treated independently. You will have to wear temporary veneers while the lab makes yours, but this often takes less than two weeks.
Designed by our porcelain veneers specialist, who is also a skilled cosmetic dentist, your veneers will be able to create the appearance of a perfectly straight smile. Veneers can also mask other issues while offering fully functional teeth. Deep stains, wide gaps, chips or cracks, and other problems can be addressed while you also turn to porcelain veneers for straighter teeth.
Naturally, not everyone can rely on porcelain veneers for straighter teeth. If you have moderate to severe issues, veneers may be unable to mask those inconsistencies and cosmetic troubles. We can suggest alternatives that can take longer but work as effectively.
