Will Veneers Appear Natural in My Smile?

Looking for a way to eradicate aesthetic problems in your smile? You can make your smile brighter, straighter, and more even with porcelain veneers. These custom-made caps attach to the front of the teeth to cover cosmetic concerns and enhance your smile’s appearance.

While you might look forward to the smile enhancement capabilities of veneers, you may also worry that these caps could look synthetic or odd on your teeth. Fortunately, your dentist understands this concern and prioritizes a natural finish with these fixtures. Read on to discover how your dentist ensures that your porcelain veneers will look both beautiful and authentic on your smile.

Will Veneers Appear Natural in My Smile

Optimal Veneer Materials for a Natural Finish

One of the appeals of cosmetic treatment using porcelain veneers is that they use materials that are both durable and aesthetically-pleasing for an ideal finish. The porcelain mimics the glossy shine of natural teeth as well as the pearly white color.

They also resist staining for bright white results that will last. Yet you can feel confident in the natural-looking finish. Veneers will appear bright but not jarring. And the porcelain is strong enough to endure the normal wear and tear your teeth experience so you will not see inhibition of oral function.

Veneers also use composite resin bonding to attach to the teeth. The material hardens for a secure hold that you can trust. The caps will not slip off of your teeth. With proper care and maintenance, these solid materials can keep veneers on your smile for fifteen years or longer.

Personalized Approach to Cosmetic Dentistry

The first step in cosmetic dental treatment is to attend a consultation. There, the dentist will evaluate your existing dental structure and medical history in relation to your aesthetic goals. Then taking all these factors into account, the dentist will determine the best treatment for your unique needs.

This personalized approach to cosmetic dentistry ensures you receive treatment that will actually work and will appear natural as well. They may determine other dental solutions that will help you achieve your desired results.

If you and your dentist pursue veneer treatment, they will make the fixtures on a custom basis based on impressions of your natural teeth. They consider the size, shape, and color of your teeth to ensure the veneers will suit your specific smile.

The impressions also allow the veneers to fit both comfortably and securely on your teeth. This ensures they do not impede oral function and that you can bite without disruption. The dentist also checks your bite before you leave their office to ensure you have a proper fit with your veneers.

If the veneers feel misaligned or loose, let your dentist know. Ill-fitting veneers may more easily break or dislodge, requiring emergency dental work to amend. Do not hesitate to reach out to your dentist with any questions about your new porcelain veneers and their effect on your smile.
