One of the most commonly utilized options with a smile makeover is porcelain veneers. This is because porcelain veneers are capable of addressing a number of cosmetic dental problems and producing a flawlessly beautiful smile.

During your smile makeover consultation with Houston cosmetic dentist Dr. Scott Young, it can best be determined if porcelain veneers are suited to meet your unique needs.

What Porcelain Veneers can Fix

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that can be placed over the front of healthy natural teeth to address common cosmetic dental issues such as:

  •          Extreme discoloration, even underneath the enamel
  •          Chips and small cracks
  •          Gaps
  •          Irregular sizes and shapes
  •          Crooked positioning
  •          Gummy smile

However, it is important to remember that porcelain veneers are a cosmetic and not a functional restoration. While incredibly resilient, veneers cannot replace missing teeth, nor can they strengthen teeth weakened by severe decay, large cracks, and similar functional issues. This is why veneers are often a part of, but not always the single solution used in, the smile makeover procedure.
