Portrait of cheerful middle-aged couple at home Your smile is one of the first facial features registered when you meet someone new. If it has imperfections, such as chipped teeth, stained teeth, or even missing teeth, it can reduce your self-confidence and have a negative impression when you first see new coworkers and friends. Dr. Matthew Huff of Precision Dentistry and Implants of Kerrville in Kerrville, TX, can assist with cosmetic dentistry solutions such as porcelain veneers. Veneers are a great way to disguise problems within the smile while ensuring a natural look!

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells made to cover the front of your teeth. The veneers can correct cosmetic imperfections such as discoloration and chipped or broken teeth while restoring functionality. They’re made from dental porcelain, so they look very realistic once placed on top of the affected area and are customized in color and shape to match your existing, surrounding teeth.

What Kinds of Problems Can Be Treated With Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers can be used to treat a variety of tooth imperfections, including:

  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Cracked, misshapen, or worn-down teeth
  • Teeth with an uneven length or shape

How Do Porcelain Veneers Disguise Imperfections?

Porcelain veneers are an excellent way to disguise imperfections in your teeth. These veneers are made from a thin layer of porcelain material that is adhered onto the front surface of your teeth. They can be used to hide discoloration, chips, cracks, and gaps between your teeth. Additionally, porcelain veneers can also be used to improve the appearance of crooked or misaligned teeth by making them appear straighter and longer.
