Can I get porcelain veneers that look like my natural teeth?
Doctor Answers 4
You can absolutely have veneers done that look natural and that you love! Take some photos to your dentist of your old teeth, and let him/her know that you want them changed to look like your natural teeth. You can also see another dentist to have this done. My suggestion is to make sure you do all your research, and choose a dentist that is highly experienced in cosmetic dentistry. Veneers should look natural, like they grew out of head. And you should be completely happy with them. It can be difficult to create a beautiful, natural looking smile if you are not experienced in doing this. Make sure you find someone you trust, and look at a lot of before and after photos.

I'm sorry to hear that you are unhappy with your veneers. The best advice I can give is to speak with your dentist about your concerns. If you opt to have your veneers replaced, be sure that okay the shape and shade of your new veneers before having them permanently cemented. Be specific about what you want for your new veneers. Veneers come in all shapes, sizes and shades, so it's important that you and your dentist discuss your expectations beforehand. The best indicator to determine if the dentist is going to give you the results that he/she claims, is by viewing before and after photos of his/her patients that have undergone similar or the same procedures. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
