Tooth imperfections don't have to keep you from smiling. Porcelain veneers, one of the restorations offered by your New Braunfels, TX, dentist, Dr. Horacio Lucero of Mission Hill Dental, will renew your smile.

How porcelain veneers conceal flaws

Originally invented to make the smiles of Hollywood actors and actresses more appealing, porcelain veneers can help anyone improve his or her appearance today. Each tooth-shaped shell is made of porcelain, a material that reflects light the same way as tooth enamel.

Although each veneer is only about as thick as a fingernail, the restorations provide excellent coverage for a variety of flaws. Porcelain veneers are cemented to the fronts of teeth only and don't require major changes to your teeth. In fact, your dentist may only have to remove a tiny amount of dental enamel for a perfect fit.

Who can benefit from veneers

If your teeth and gums are healthy and in good condition, porcelain veneers may be a good choice for you. Should your dentist notice any issues with your teeth or gums, you may need treatment before you can proceed with the veneer process.

Do you have a tiny, yet distracting, chip on the bottom of a tooth? Adding a veneer to the tooth will keep the chip out of sight. Veneers also conceal shallow cracks and other minor damage and make bumpy teeth look smoother.

When a slight gap between your front teeth makes you reluctant to smile, veneers offer a simple solution. They're an excellent choice for small gaps, although orthodontic treatment might be needed if you have large gaps.

Veneers can also give you a bright, white Hollywood smile. During your visit to the New Braunfels dental office, you'll get to choose from many shades of white to create your new smile. The restorations can also be used to hide a few discolored teeth.

Are you unhappy with the shape or length of a tooth? Veneers extend short teeth and improve the appearance of crooked, twisted, pointed, or other oddly shaped teeth.
