The Far-reaching Aesthetic Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
With porcelain veneers, you can achieve a more evenly aligned smile that can transform your appearance and help boost your self-confidence. These restorations are also one of the few cosmetic treatments that can provide significant cosmetic enhancement in as little as two weeks. Dr. Timothy M. Kelly can discuss the benefits of porcelain veneers during a consultation at our Albuquerque, NM, office. These advantages include filling gaps between teeth, covering discoloration, and other minor imperfections.
About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin shells crafted from medical-grade ceramic. These shells are affixed to the front of the teeth to repair minor damage, conceal imperfections, and make minor adjustments to your dental alignment. Our personalized veneers are custom-crafted in an offsite dental laboratory, using a shade of porcelain that closely matches your surrounding teeth for a natural look. You can also choose a brighter shade of porcelain and receive veneers on more teeth to improve the brightness of your entire smile.
Porcelain veneers can refine the shape and size of your teeth that are unevenly worn, disproportionately small, or irregularly shaped. The natural-looking porcelain is also an excellent choice to conceal deep-set or internal stains in your teeth. This treatment can result in a more proportionate, uniform, and whiter smile. Porcelain veneers can also conceal chips and cracks, hide minor misalignment issues, and fill moderate gaps between the teeth.
Veneers are completely customizable to match the shade of your natural teeth or to brighten your entire smile. Combined with the lifelike appearance of dental veneers, this personalized shading makes the restorations virtually invisible, and they can look completely natural. We will also ensure that your veneers are proportionate for your features and enhance your overall appearance. In just a couple appointments at our office, you can have a straighter, more uniform, gap-free, and whiter smile.
When you undergo a combination of porcelain veneers and restorative procedures, we can provide customized treatment for a complete transformation of your smile and oral health.
Benefits of Combining with Other Treatments
As a standalone treatment, porcelain veneers can provide dramatic results. However, when combined with other cosmetic or restorative treatments, the results can be even more impressive. Porcelain veneers are commonly combined with teeth whitening, which allows your veneers to match your newly whitened smile for a significantly brighter shade.
Patients needing extensive restorative work may choose to also include porcelain veneers in a full mouth reconstruction. Veneers can address minor cosmetic issues while other treatments, such as dental implants or dental crowns, can address missing, severely damaged, or decayed teeth. When you undergo a combination of porcelain veneers and these procedures, we can provide customized treatment for a complete transformation of your smile and oral health.
