You might know that you want your smile to look straighter or brighter or healthier, but you may not know what’s the best way to go about it. For instance, you have a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments available to choose from, and each one can be custom-designed according to your specific needs. At our Riverside, CA, dental office, patients often find that porcelain veneers are the best option due to their highly lifelike appearance and ability to address multiple concerns at once.

What do you need to fix?

Because you have so many different cosmetic dentistry options, the first step to choosing the best one is to diagnose your specific concerns. Fortunately, porcelain veneers are appropriate for most forms of cosmetic smile blemishes, especially when you have more than one of them to deal with. That’s because veneers are crafted individually to closely mimic your healthy, natural teeth, and then bonded to each tooth’s front surface.

Are your teeth otherwise healthy?

For veneers to work, they need a steady, stable foundation of healthy tooth structure to support them. Therefore, your dentist will also ensure that your teeth are strong enough to hold your veneers and free of any tooth decay. If you do exhibit these or other signs of tooth trouble, then you may have to address it before cosmetically improving your smile.

Is there a more conservative option?

In some cases, tooth blemishes may be addressed with a more conservative treatment than veneers. For example, professional teeth-whitening can erase common teeth stains without any changes to your tooth structure at all. Chips and other minor blemishes may be restored with the help of minimally invasive tooth bonding.
