Dr. William Whittle and the Whittle Dentistry staff are experts in treating their patients with porcelain veneers near Fort Worth, TX. They know the top five reasons reported by their patients for getting porcelain veneers.
What are porcelain veneers?
Dental porcelain veneers are coatings of a glass-like material that are bonded to the surface of the teeth to disguise a discolored tooth, even out an irregularly shaped tooth, or complete a chipped tooth making the patient’s smile more natural looking. Temporary veneers may be used while permanent porcelain veneers are being custom-made for the patient. They help protect the tooth or teeth from sensitivity to temperature and make them functional during treatment. Veneers, even permanent ones, are replaceable if lost or damaged.
Top five reasons for getting porcelain veneers:
Reasons to improve one’s smile are myriad, but most often patients who consider porcelain veneers have in common:
A better alignment: Slight positional differences among the teeth can be evened out with porcelain veneers. The surface of the teeth look more natural, the position of the teeth more functional, and the patient’s self-image is boosted.
A more functional bite: The size and shape of the teeth can be made to look more natural with porcelain veneers. More even teeth improves a patient’s bite and the function of the teeth. Teeth look stronger and healthier and match more closely the appearance of the surrounding teeth with porcelain veneers.
A healthier mouth: A more functional bite and a more even surface to brush and keep clean means porcelain veneers can help improve a patient’s dental health. Flossing is easier, brushing is more effective, and the new look of the teeth in the mouth encourage the patient to maintain good oral health care habits.
A brighter smile: Porcelain veneers can help all the teeth appear whiter and they can match a discolored or misshapen tooth. A brighter, more uniform, and more natural looking smile is achieved.
A stronger self-image: A patient with straighter, brighter, and more uniform teeth through treatment with porcelain veneers achieves a stronger sense of self-confidence. They smile more and bigger, they chew efficiently, and they care for their teeth and gums more easily.
Having healthy looking teeth makes it easy to stand in front of a camera and smile. Porcelain veneers can help change the color, size, and shape of your teeth to achieve the smile you have always wanted.
