veneersPorcelain veneers can be true smile savers, as the dental professionals at Dr. Butt's office know well. Below are just three of the many benefits of choosing veneers in Carbondale.

They’re customizable

When porcelain veneers were first in the spotlight, it was because many celebrities had chosen to have their dentist apply them to their teeth. These rectangular, blindingly-white “Chiclets” were a turnoff to some who believed they looked too fake. Nowadays, veneers are completely customizable so that they fit right in to your smile. Everything from the shape to the color of each individual veneer is designed to blend seamlessly with your other teeth. Whatever it is that you don’t love about your smile, Dr. Butt would like to help you change it.

They’re alike and different from natural teeth in all the right ways

Porcelain veneers are unique in that they reflect light in a similar way to your own teeth. This makes them look very natural and like you didn’t have any work done. However, unlike the teeth you grew all on your own, veneers have the ability to resist food and drink stains, such as berries, coffee and wine, as well as cigarette stains. Additionally, unlike dental implants, crowns and bridges, the tooth is still largely your own, as very little of it needs to be removed to install a veneer.
So while it looks like a natural tooth and you care for it the same way, with regular brushing and flossing, your veneer has the added benefits of being artificial, and thus stain-resistant.

They’re perfect for creating a beautiful, brand new smile

Whether your teeth are stained from food, drink or bad habits, or are worn down from clenching or grinding, when Dr. Mazhar M. Butt installs lovely new porcelain veneers in your mouth, it’s like starting over with your smile.
In addition to the customizable shape and color, they can be used to close gaps between teeth and to hide chips or cracks. So you may not have given your teeth the best treatment ever in the past, or perhaps you got into a regrettable scuffle in your twenties. Luckily, there is still hope to make your smile as beautiful as you’ve always wanted it to be.
