Are you spending time poring over images of beautiful smiles that you assume include veneers? As a result, are you spending an equal amount of time and energy wondering if porcelain veneers will work for you? In most instances, it’s simply a matter of determining whether veneers are your best solution or, if perhaps, you could make the improvement you seek with other solutions. Let’s consider some of those potential this-or-that moments.
Cosmetic Concerns Versus Misalignment
If your smile is strictly in need of cosmetic help to look a little straighter, for instance you have some minor spacing, then porcelain veneers may be just what you need. However, if your problem includes multiple esthetic problems like spacing and overlapping and a crooked tooth or two, you may better benefit from clear aligners. If your smile displays true misalignment, you will require orthodontic care. For orthodontics, you will need a trusted orthodontist to whom we will happily refer you.
Severe Staining Versus Mild Staining
Dealing with severe staining? Porcelain veneers can camouflage your smile beautifully! However, if your stains are quite mild, then you may be able to simply erase them with whitening (and a smaller price tag).
One Issue Versus Many Issues
If you have one little issue with your smile, such as a single chip, then choosing a smile full of porcelain veneers is going to be overkill. You probably just need to see us for bonding or contouring to fix the chip and your smile will look beautiful again. However, let’s say you have a lot of issues to contend with. Maybe you want to fill a gap, you have chips, you see discoloration, you have varying tooth lengths that create a jagged appearance, and more. When you need to address many concerns, veneers are often a wonderful solution!
