The sun’s blazing, the days are longer, and vacation is right around the corner. Summer has finally arrived! Are you ready to flash your smile this season? If you have flaws and imperfections in your teeth, you may feel self-conscious and try to hide them. Luckily, porcelain veneers are the perfect solution to restore your grin and confidence. Read on to find out how veneers can help you achieve pearly whites you’ll never stop showing off.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin sheaths of high-quality dental porcelain that are cemented on the front surfaces of minimally prepared teeth. When in place, they disguise cosmetic flaws and imperfections. Veneers are color-matched to the enamel of the surrounding teeth and sculpted to suit your smile perfectly. In just a few appointments, you can enjoy a beautiful, fully functioning, natural-looking grin!

What Can Porcelain Veneers Do?

One of the benefits of porcelain veneers is their versatility. They can address a wide array of dental imperfections and cosmetic flaws, including:

  • Minor chips and cracks. Veneers can enhance the appearance of your smile by concealing minor signs of damage, such as chips and cracks in your teeth.
  • Stained or discolored teeth. Some people have stubborn stains on their teeth that even professional whitening treatments cannot eliminate. In cases of severe discoloration, veneers can help by completely masking the tooth and creating the appearance of a clean, pristine smile.  
  • Gaps in between your teeth. Spacing issues and small gaps are common dental flaws. If orthodontic treatment isn’t up your alley, consider porcelain veneers. They can correct these gaps in just a couple of appointments!
  • Crooked teeth. Since veneers are affixed to the front of your teeth, they can give you a straighter grin without shifting the actual position of your teeth.  

Who Is a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

If you have numerous cosmetic flaws and imperfections that affect the appearance of your smile, then you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. You must also be in good dental health, your teeth need to be strong, and they must have sufficient enamel. Having sufficient enamel is essential because that is what the veneers adhere to. Otherwise, the treatment may be ineffective. People with severe oral health conditions may require other methods to address their concerns instead of dental veneers.

Don’t let your smile hold you back this summer! Consult with your dentist about getting porcelain veneers. Before you know it, you’ll be beaming with confidence all season long.
