For some people, the state of their smile is a constant source of anxiety. Missing or crooked teeth, severe staining and discoloration, or a veneers"gummy" smile among other dental problems are often enough to make people want to hide at home (or at the very least never open their mouth). However not all dental problems are as drastic, or even especially noticeable or obvious to other people. Smaller and more subtle cosmetic problems, like minor chips, spacing, or mild to moderate stains from food, drinks, and tobacco may not necessarily ruin a smile or require extensive dental work. But they can dull and detract from an otherwise healthy and attractive smile.

Dental Veneers in Harrisburg

Veneers are the perfect solution for people who want to refresh their smile and correct minor imperfections to the color, shape, or size of their teeth. Harrisburg, PA based dentist Dr. Ernest Fontaine recommends porcelain veneers for minor cosmetic upgrades that can have a big impact, without having to undergo extensive dental work or a large time commitment.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Veneers are made of a wafer thin layer of porcelain that fits over the tooth. Designed to match the texture, size, shape, and desired shade of natural teeth, they are the perfect solution for anyone interested in improving the appearance of their smile without making drastic changes. Veneers also have the unique benefit of offering one solution for multiple problems with one treatment, such as fixing chipped or unevenly spaced teeth and also making them whiter.

Sometimes all it takes is a few minor adjustments and improvements in order to get the smile that's perfect for you. Like the right haircut or a flattering new wardrobe, cosmetic smile improvements can subtly transform a person's entire appearance for the better, often boosting confidence and improving your overall quality of life.
