Model With Short Black Hair on Gray Brick WallIf you are unhappy with the appearance of your front teeth, you’ve likely considered porcelain veneers as a way to dramatically enhance your smile. But are they the best option for your teeth? Most adult patients who are dealing with cosmetically flawed front teeth are indeed good candidates for the treatment — but there are some instances in which porcelain veneers in Gilbert may not be the best solution for your smile. Learn more about popular cosmetic solution today.

Some of the most common applications of porcelain veneers include covering up…

  • Chipped teeth
  • Misshapen teeth (pointy, short, or stubby teeth)
  • Slightly gapped or misaligned teeth
  • Severely stained teeth that have not improved with professional teeth whitening
  • And other cosmetic issues

Instant Orthodontics, Permanent Whitening

Two of the primary “fixes” possible with porcelain veneers are for dental misalignments and teeth whitening. Adults who are reluctant to wear braces to correct minor orthodontic issues — like slight gaps or front teeth that don’t line up the way they should — can benefit from the instant orthodontic effect of porcelain veneers. 

Porcelain veneers are also a wonderful option for patients dealing with significant tooth staining. Some extrinsic stains — or those that live beneath the surface of the tooth — are impossible to remove. Certain medications are especially known for causing these deep, stubborn stains. If you have tried teeth whitening but to no success, porcelain veneers are like little white jackets for your smile. And because dental porcelain is highly resistant to stains, veneers stay the same shade for years and years to come.
