If you’re considering porcelain veneers, you might be held back by a fear that you won’t like the results. People might have told you about how they’re going to look fake or make your smile so it’s not your own, and this might make you nervous.
The good news is: you don’t have to just take their word for it–you can see results for yourself first.
Learn from Others’ Experience
You don’t need to listen to what other people say about porcelain veneers, you can see for yourself the kind of results that people can get. Look at before and after galleries and see how people are transforming their smiles with smile makeovers, including porcelain veneers.
Compare the work of different dentists. You’ll see that porcelain veneers don’t have to look fake, and they don’t have to look generic. They can look natural and personal.
Once you’ve learned about how good they can be, you can start considering what they might look like on you.
A Picture of You in the Future
Modern digital imaging lets you try on porcelain veneers “virtually.” You can have a digital image taken of your smile and then we can add the veneers to it through cosmetic imaging. This isn’t a completely accurate representation, but it’s a start.
You can try on different styles of veneers. You can experiment with more veneers or fewer. You can decide what size of veneers you want, and whether you think your teeth should be masculine or feminine. You can experiment with different shapes and proportions. This is a great way to understand some of the ways that we can customize your porcelain veneers.
Temporary Veneers That You Can Feel
If you are still on the fence, we can try something a little more concrete. Instead of porcelain veneers, we can apply dental bonding–the same material used in tooth-colored fillings–to your teeth so that you can get a better idea of what veneers will actually look and feel like.
These are very temporary restorations that we can use to give you a better idea about what your smile would look and feel like after your restoration is complete.
