What Porcelain Veneers Can Do

Porcelain veneers are a versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment. Because they can replace the entire front and sometimes other surfaces of your teeth, they can correct almost any of the common cosmetic complaints people have about their smiles.
Porcelain veneers can be used to fix:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Gummy smile

And more. Better yet, if you have several of these problems and you want to have them corrected, you can get them all corrected at the same time, using only one simple treatment.

Porcelain Veneers vs. Other Treatments

Although porcelain veneers can be used for many different conditions, they are no Jack of all trades, master of none. In fact, they are often the best treatment for correcting your cosmetic complaints.

For discolored teeth, teeth whitening has the advantage of being noninvasive and less expensive, but its effectiveness is limited by the type of stains and the color of your enamel. It cannot correct teeth discolored from within, and it can only get your teeth as white as your enamel allows. Porcelain veneers, however, can improve the appearance of teeth discolored for any reason and can get your teeth as white as you want them.

For chipped teeth or gapped teeth, porcelain veneers give a better appearance than the competing treatment, dental bonding, and the results are longer-lasting (generally ten years or more, compared to a year or more for dental bonding).

For crooked teeth, porcelain veneers have the benefit of being a rapid treatment when compared to orthodontic options like Invisalign. While porcelain veneers can be completed in less than a month, orthodontic treatment generally take about a year to complete.
