Sometimes, you may find that when you’re talking with us about your options for making your smile into a better looking feature, you bring up a treatment and we suggest porcelain veneers instead. Why might this be the case, you wonder, and when? Sometimes, though you assume a particular service is going to be the best, we may determine that either it won’t suffice or that it’s more than your smile actually requires. Ready for some examples? We’ve got them, of course!

When You Think You Need Braces (In Some Cases)

You might think that you’re going to need braces if you’re going to close a small space in your smile. What you don’t realize is that sometimes, little gaps that you find esthetically unappealing do not require braces or other orthodontic care if your smile is otherwise aligned. Instead, we may suggest porcelain veneers to close that gap, especially if you want to fix other concerns, too, like staining!

When Your Smile Is Very Stained

About stains: You may think that teeth whitening is going to be what we suggest for you. However, you visit us and we recommend porcelain veneers instead. Why might this be, you ask yourself? For very stained smile, as in those with a lot of staining that’s not going to be easily removed with whitening or with deep staining, veneers cover them up. This is a much easier and more effective approach to handling discoloration.

When You Are Unhappy With Tooth Shape

Don’t like the shape of your teeth? If it’s just one tooth, bonding and contouring will most certainly work. However, if you wish all of your teeth looked different (and particularly if you want whiter teeth and more), then we might suggest porcelain veneers instead!
