Yes, porcelain veneers will give you a stunning, white smile. It is extremely important that you see an expert cosmetic dentist to achieve the kind of results you desire. Not just any dentist can do beautiful porcelain veneers. Think of it like an artist creating a beautiful masterpiece. In order to do truly beautiful cosmetic dentistry requires extensive training beyond dental school. Also, it require an eye for aesthetics and creating beauty.
Creating the Smile of Your Dreams With Porcelain Veneers
An expert cosmetic dentist can design a smile that fits your personality, complexion and facial characteristics. It sounds like you are after the Hollywood look. An excellent cosmetic dentist will be able to provide that for you, while still make it look natural-looking.
Also, many cosmetic dentists can show you different smile designs digitally and will give you many opportunities to see exactly what it will look like before it is permanently bonded into place. Start with a complimentary consultation to determine the best look for you.
You mentioned teeth whitening, which will remove surface stains. Teeth bleaching methods can only whiten to a certain level based on how stained your teeth are.
With porcelain veneers, a thin shell of porcelain is placed over the surface of the teeth. A tiny amount of your tooth enamel is removed to make sure there is a seamless transition from your natural teeth to the veneers. And good news, you get to choose precisely how white you want the shade.
The good news is that the smile of your dreams can be yours with porcelain veneers!
