Porcelain veneers are extremely thin casings of ceramic that are bonded to the front of your teeth in order to create a new smile. They can be thought of as partial coverage crowns that cover the front surface of the teeth. Veneers help generate shiny beautiful teeth that are aesthetically pleasing for patients.
Veneers can be placed for a variety of reasons but the main objective is achieving great aesthetics.
Teeth come in a variety of shapes and colors. Genetics plays an important role in tooth shape and color; for instance, some genetic disorders such as Amelogenesis Imperfecta and Dentinogenesis Imperfecta may cause oddly colored, weak or misshapen teeth. Also, some patients can develop small round peg like teeth (often referred to as peg laterals). These teeth are usually smaller in size and don’t look aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Environmental factors can also cause the color or shape of teeth to be very different. Environmental factors include exposure to extremely high levels of fluoride, exposure to some antibiotics such as tetracycline at a young age, having a diet rich in dark staining foods, etc.
Veneers may be a great option for masking these problems.
