Why Get Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers?
The issues that may be can be addressed with the help of dental veneers:

The human brain picks up on unsymmetrical. Using veneers to correct the uneven appearance of your teeth and regain symmetry will give you a beautiful cosmetic smile.
Worn Enamel and Stain: Over time your tooth’s enamel may dull and discolor as it wears down. Your discolored teeth may be due to early childhood antibiotic use commonly called tetracycline staining. Furthermore, drinking tea, coffee, soft drinks, and smoking will significantly stain your teeth. Porcelain veneers can give you the teeth color you desire for a beautiful smile.

People who have objections to their teeth having severe wear, dullness, discoloration, spacing, cracking, chipping, and unevenness problems.
Teeth Whitening or Dental Veneers?
Dr. Nugent is very conservative. Patients who only have mild discoloration are great candidates for teeth whitening (teeth bleaching). If minor tooth positioning problems are present clear orthodontic trays (like Invisalign) can be used to correct the positioning problems
However, Dr. Nugent will have you bleach your teeth prior to veneers. This is to get the teeth as white as possible. Bleaching your teeth allows Dr. Nugent to be much more conservative in his porcelain veneer preparations. Less tooth structure is taken off because the porcelain veneer can be thinner because the porcelain veneer does not have to mask a dark tooth.
Restorative Benefits of Dental Veneers.
Veneers can be used to address functional problems by providing protection required for a damaged tooth. Dental veneers can sometimes serve as an alternative to larger procedures (porcelain crowns). Veneers are made from very thin porcelain. When the veneers are bonded they become a part of your tooth and become very strong. Think of this like flooring tile. A tile can be smashed pretty easily. When the tile is properly put into place it takes tremendous stress, forces and is extremely durable.
