Tooth Shape Options for Porcelain Veneers

Tooth Shape Options for Porcelain Veneers | Laguna NiguelPorcelain veneers are a great way to get the smile you’ve been yearning for. Whether you’re looking for a total smile makeover or need a few chipped teeth covered, Dr. Huefner has a tooth shape and style for you.

Porcelain veneers can conceal misaligned, chipped, gapped and discolored teeth. They involve fixing a thin shell over your existing tooth with an adhesive, and they match your natural tooth enamel. These veneers are customized specifically for your teeth. Dr. Huefner can help you decide which shape, size and color provides the final result you want.

When it comes to porcelain veneer tooth shapes, you might want to consider your gender and how you want your smile to be perceived. A masculine look usually involves square and flattened teeth. Whereas, a feminine look entails slightly more rounded front teeth. One of the most important aspects to consider are your two front teeth. They set apart your smile from masculine to feminine and aggressive to passive.

Dr. Huefner uses two libraries of tooth shape options as a reference, the LVI Smile Catalog and the Loren Library. Try not to get hung up on glamorous names like “Hollywood Style,” and instead focus on the shape that best fits your smile. If you’re only having a few teeth corrected, then the shape and size of your porcelain veneers could be similar to your surrounding teeth. If you’re having a smile makeover, you might have a wider variety of choices.
When you receive your temporary teeth, you have a trial smile period to decide whether that shape is right for you. If you don’t like your temporary look, you can choose a different shape for your permanent porcelain veneers. Once you’ve picked the perfect tooth shape, Dr. Huefner will send your style preference, desired tooth length and color choice to his experienced ceramist.

If you’re interested in porcelain veneers, contact Dr. Huefner today at 949-495-6322 to schedule your consultation. Dr. Huefner provides general and cosmetic dentistry to patients in Laguna Niguel, Orange County, Irvine and Newport Beach, California.
