How do veneers work?
Porcelain veneers, or dental laminates, can be fabricated from various materials, including durable porcelain and tooth-colored composite resin. Porcelain veneers are made to fit individual teeth and are often placed in pairs to create a more balanced, uniform appearance. They are a highly effective cosmetic dentistry option that can accomplish the following:
- Contour teeth to improve the width, shape, or size
- Even out biting edges for a more proportionate smile
- Hide tooth discolorations or stains for whitening results
- Mask damaged, cracked, or chipped teeth
- Straighten slightly crooked teeth
- Remove small gaps for a more symmetrical smile
- Create a more balanced, wider smile
Can porcelain veneers help overcrowded teeth?
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-crafted restorations made of a nonporous, durable, and semi-translucent material bonded to a tooth's surface. Overcrowded teeth can cause different oral health problems. If you have overcrowded teeth, you are more likely to develop gum disease and tooth decay. Teeth that overlap are more challenging to brush and floss properly, allowing food particles to remain dislodged between teeth, leading to plaque, cavities, and more. Porcelain veneers can help treat mild to moderate overcrowding, along with other dental treatments like Invisalign® clear aligners. During a consultation, Dr. Henegar will assess your dental concerns with overcrowded teeth and present the right solution to fit your aesthetic needs.
