Porcelain Veneers for Gaps
Do you have gaps in your teeth that you would like to close? If so, you are not alone. Here at Smiles for Life Dental Care, which serves the Harrisonburg and Staunton, VA area, we offer porcelain veneers for tooth gaps. These thin ceramic shells help patients achieve the beautiful smiles they desire.
Porcelain veneers are a tried and tested method for straightening your teeth without needing years of braces, retainers, or invasive oral surgery. Read on to find out how porcelain veneers can address gaps in your teeth and give you a boost in confidence.
One of the best parts of porcelain veneers is that they are custom made to fit your teeth. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Each veneer is crafted with your unique dental anatomy in mind. This means natural, realistic results.
Because of the individualized nature of porcelain veneers, they are incredibly adaptable. The materials and craftsmanship make it difficult for others to tell that you have veneers place. They look so much like real teeth.
Designed to fit your unique smile, porcelain veneers aim to be as realistic as possible, whether viewed up close, or in natural or artificial light. Using the rest of your teeth as a guide, we align your new veneers to help close unwanted gaps. We also match the color of the porcelain veneers to the surrounding teeth for truly lifelike results.
Quicker than Braces
While they are certainly effective orthodontic options, Invisalign® and braces can take months or even years to fix the gaps in your smile. This is where porcelain veneers shine. The whole porcelain veneer process generally takes around two to four weeks, depending on lab availability and number of veneers needed.
Receiving your veneers usually takes two dental visits. The first is a cosmetic consultation, where we determine the number of veneers necessary to achieve your goals. We will also remove some tooth enamel to accommodate the veneers and take impressions of your prepped teeth. During the next visit, we attach your custom veneers.
Ideal for Small Gaps
Veneers are remarkably useful for a wide range of cosmetic concerns. When it comes to filling in spaces, they work best with smaller gaps. With larger gaps, veneers may not be as ideal. In fact, large gaps could affect the stability and appearance of the porcelain veneer.
If you have large gaps between your teeth, our team can talk with you in detail about your treatment options. This is why the consultation process is so important.
Other Uses for Porcelain Veneers
We highly recommend porcelain veneers to many patients. Not only do they work wonders for gaps, they also address these other common cosmetic concerns:
- Crooked teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Discolored teeth
To qualify for porcelain veneers, patients must be in good oral health, free from cavities and gum disease.
