It doesn’t matter how healthy your teeth are — if the ones in the front don’t look just right, it can leave you feeling insecure about your smile. For minor gaps between the front teeth or a slightly off-center bite, there is an option that doesn’t involve having to wear visible braces for a year or more. Porcelain veneers in Florham Park can mask the appearance of just about any imperfection, saving you significant time on your route to a beautiful smile.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that can be placed on the front surface of the teeth that show when you smile. We call these the “social six,” as they are the teeth that make or break a beautiful grin. If they’re not perfect, veneers come to the rescue. These restorations are made from dental porcelain, a material that looks and feels just like your natural tooth enamel. What’s more, they are highly customizable and will be carefully crafted to match the specific color, shape, and size that will suit your unique facial structure best.
How Can Veneers Replace Braces?
Patients with minor gaps between teeth, crowded teeth, or slightly off-center teeth can enjoy the “instant orthodontic” effect of veneers that helps them avoid the need for bulky, visible metal braces. This is possible only when the overall bite is well-aligned but minor cosmetic flaws affect the teeth in the front of the smile.
Of course, that’s not all veneers can cover up. They work for just about any blemish that affects otherwise healthy teeth. From chips and cracks to discoloration, misshapen teeth, and much more, veneers can correct small imperfections that impact your smile in a big way.
Are Veneers Right for You?
If you are interested in improving the appearance of your smile with porcelain veneers, chances are good you are a good candidate for this treatment. Most adults are. The only way to know for sure is to schedule an appointment with your cosmetic dentist. During a consultation, the condition of your teeth will be evaluated and you and your dentist will discuss your goals with cosmetic dentistry. If the teeth in the smile-zone are in need of cosmetic enhancement but are otherwise healthy, veneers may be perfect for you.
To conclude, porcelain veneers are a highly effective cosmetic treatment for imperfect and/or crooked teeth in Florham Park — and in some cases, they can even replace braces. To learn more about whether or not this treatment is right for you, you’ll need to visit with a cosmetic dentist. Don’t hesitate to get started on your beautiful smile!
