Though the cosmetic dental benefits of veneers seem clear, many people worry that introducing these fixtures to their teeth may make their smile seem jarring or false. You can rest assured that your dentist prioritizes a finish that looks both beautiful and natural with porcelain veneer treatment.  

You may feel more comfortable pursuing this smile enhancement when you know more about your dentist’s approach to guarantee an authentic final look. Read on to learn details about how your dentist builds porcelain veneers to look natural as they boost your smile’s appearance.

How Dentists Make Natural-Looking Veneers

Why We Use Beautiful and Durable Porcelain for Veneers

Porcelain is an ideal material to use when building veneers. Its tooth-like color ensures that it blends well into your smile. Plus, it features color-match capabilities to adjust to your unique smile.

Its glossy finish mimics the appearance of natural teeth as well. This way, you can avoid a dull, too-white look that can look startlingly false.

Porcelain is also durable. You can look forward to these fixtures remaining in place without breaking when you complete your usual oral functions like chewing and biting. The hard structure combined with the secure hold on your teeth from bonding ensures a long-lasting reliable fit. Then you do not have to worry about the veneers falling off of your teeth.

Porcelain will resist staining and decay as well. So you can rest assured that the beautiful finish will endure no matter your diet. You should continue good oral habits, including proper oral hygiene, though. If you develop certain dental problems, they may affect the fit of your veneers. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid scratching the veneers.

Look Forward to Personalized Cosmetic Dental Treatment

Another reason you can feel confident that you can achieve a natural look with porcelain veneers is that your dentist will employ an individualized approach to cosmetic dentistry. This means that the dentist will determine a treatment plan based on your specific goals and needs. They will look at your existing dental structure, medical history, and cosmetic goals to ensure that veneers are right for you.

The dentist will also consider how veneers will affect your long-term oral health. Dr. Grapevine practices complete dentistry, a comprehensive lens that balances the desired aesthetic results of your dental work with your well-being.

The dentist will make custom veneers for each patient. They consider the size, shape, and color of the fixtures so that they will both look and feel right. They also check your bite before you leave their office. This ensures the veneers do not disrupt your bite or introduce complications to your oral function or health.
