What Dental Imperfections Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?

Cosmetic Dentistry for Beverly Hills & Los Angeles, CA

Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry restorations available. They are able to address a variety of aesthetic imperfections with one convenient procedure. For this reason, Dr. Kevin Sands often recommends porcelain veneers as part of a smile makeover.

Common cosmetic issues that can be corrected with porcelain veneers include:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Overly worn teeth
  • Discolored teeth

Porcelain veneers are often referred to as “instant orthodontics” since they can cover crooked teeth to make them appear straight in just two short visits to our Beverly Hills cosmetic dentistry office. Keep in mind that this is strictly an aesthetic correction. If you want to achieve the functional benefits of straight teeth, you will need to undergo orthodontic treatment.

There are some issues that porcelain veneers cannot fix. These include:

  • Repairing a tooth that has been badly damaged by fracture or infection
  • Replacing a missing tooth
  • Correcting serious bite issues
