Fixing the Flaws with Veneers | Walnut Creek Dentist

Beautiful Smile

When we have flaws with our smile, it can become a cause for some worry. Sure, many of us aren’t blessed with a lovely set of pearly whites, but many times the flaws are perfectly fixable. One of said fixes is with veneers.

Porcelain veneers offer superior benefits over other cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental crowns or braces. Because they are fingernail-thin shells adhered to the front surface of your damaged tooth, they are able to solve a myriad of aesthetic problems with just one treatment. In fact, here is a list of the top ten reasons veneers are the preferred treatment option for many dental issues:

Discrete. Porcelain is a translucent material that mimics the look, luster, and feel of enamel.

Whitening. When adhered to the front surface of your teeth, veneers you’re your teeth look instantly whiter.

Straighter teeth. Veneers offer a great alternative for patients with crooked teeth who do not want to endure the process of having their teeth straightened with dental braces.

Fixing breaks. Veneers can fill in and improve the look of chipped or broken teeth.

Gap fillers. Veneers can be customized to repair smiles with unsightly gaps.

Youthful appearance. A whiter, brighter, more lustrous smile can immediately give your face a more youthful appearance.

Conservative. Unlike other cosmetic procedures that require removing a large portion of healthy, natural teeth, veneers can be applied with little alteration.

Protection. Once applied, the veneers also serve to provide a protective shield to the front surface of teeth.

Stain-resistant. Porcelain is stain-resistant, making your smile stay brighter and whiter longer.

Gum friendly. Gum tissue is not irritated by porcelain, making adjustment easier.
