Did you know that your smile is a powerful tool? A beautiful smile makes a good first impression and people with amazing smiles are perceived as happier and more successful. If you’re smile isn’t quite making the impression you’d like it to, porcelain veneers may be a good option for you. Dr. Mahima Gupta is your premiere cosmetic dentist in Lancaster, and here she discusses the benefits of porcelain veneers.
What is a Porcelain Veneer?
Best described as a thin layer of porcelain, a dental veneer is a restoration that is designed to fit over your natural tooth to repair and enhance your smile. Veneers can be used to repair one tooth, but they’re best utilized to enhance an entire smile. Many of the Hollywood smiles we all admire have been enhanced with porcelain veneers.
Veneers are directly bonded to your tooth, which adds strength to your natural tooth. They’re easy to care for as you’ll be able to brush and floss as you were always used to doing. With the right home care and regular dental checkups, your veneers can potentially last for many years.
Your dentist will custom shade your veneer, and they’re stain resistant so you won’t have to worry about whitening your teeth. Porcelain veneers are ideal for repairing dental issues such as:
- Small chips and fractures
- Discoloration or staining
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps or spacing between teeth
- Misaligned teeth
Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers work well for most patients, however a great place to start is a consultation with Dr. Gupta in order to determine if they will help you achieve your goals and desires for your smile. With a thorough examination and some x-rays, she can determine the best treatment for your needs. If veneers are not in your future, Dr. Gupta is happy to discuss other cosmetic options that may work well for you.
