When you think of “porcelain veneers,” chances are you don’t assume this cosmetic dental treatment has the ability to improve fine lines and wrinkles. However, despite popular belief, aesthetic veneers can not only hide dental imperfections in your smile, but they can also mask signs of age around the nose and mouth. Through strategic adjustments to the teeth designed to improve the facial appearance from the inside out, porcelain veneers are capable of diminishing fine lines and aging without injections or plastic surgery.
In addition to concealing gaps, chips, and discoloration in the enamel, porcelain veneers are also designed to present an ideal tooth form—full, healthy, and proportional to your adjacent teeth. As a result, perfecting the tooth structure can have a number of cosmetic effects on the rest of the face, including reducing laugh lines and even providing a plumper, softer look to the lips. Our cosmetic dentists, Drs. Romano, Bizzarro, and Dunn, can thicken the upper portion of a porcelain veneer to slightly push out the lower third of the face, softening “parentheses wrinkles” and producing a more noticeable pout while maintaining a natural aesthetic. Or, if your teeth look worn, discolored, or short, veneers can lengthen the teeth and restore a white sheen for a younger-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are a simple minimally invasive treatment, but the results of treatment can have a powerful effect on your entire facial appearance. Our dentists have extensive knowledge of the dentofacial structure and can assist you in enhancing your smile while minimizing signs of age in the face.
