When most individuals think about porcelain veneers, they envision whiter, straighter and more beautiful teeth without the hassle of braces or extensive procedures. In addition to creating a more beautiful, shapely smile, veneers also have two surprising potential benefits.
Veneers are applied on top of your existing teeth, adding an extra layer behind the lips. This additional strip of porcelain can cause the lips to be pushed out slightly, generating a more voluminous, fuller look. Not only are you improving the look of your smile, but with the veneers, you are able to create a more defined and substantial look to your lips, as well.
Smile lines that form around the mouth can also be slightly reduced in the same way. Due to the extra layer of material on your teeth, the look of wrinkles and lines around your lips may be diminished.
Veneers are a wonderful way to fix broken, chipped, discolored or crooked teeth without the pain or long time frame of braces.
