How to Choose Veneers for Your Face Shape?
Porcelain Veneers have gained widespread popularity nowadays. Their ability to fix structural and cosmetic dental problems in a short time has made them the most sought after cosmetic dental procedures.
When it comes to porcelain veneers, there are endless options to choose from. Choosing the right veneers for your face can be just as important as choosing the right cosmetic dentist.
There are many variables that you and your dentist should consider when choosing the right veneers for your mouth. These variables include:
The appropriate color for your porcelain veneers is determined using a standard tooth color chart. This table is divided into four categories (grey, reddish yellow, reddish brown and reddish gray) and eleven subcategories for a wide variety of hues. You should choose a shade about two shades lighter than your natural teeth for your veneers.
Choosing the right shape for your veneers is very important to give your face the most appropriate smile. Because every tooth is different, there are endless combinations to choose from.
Aggressive: Square-shaped, uniform teeth for a bold impression. It is generally more common in men.
Mature: Square-shaped teeth with slightly rounded canines.
Vigorous: Square shaped teeth with sharp and prominent canines.
Dominant: Square-shaped teeth with more prominent anterior teeth and rounded canines.
Focused: Slightly rounded teeth with square central incisors.
Advanced: Slightly rounded teeth
Softened: Rounded teeth with a more pronounced curvature.
Hollywood: Square shaped with slightly shorter lateral incisors. This is one of the most popular veneer styles and is generally preferred for male patients.
Functional: Slightly rounded shape with pointed canines for optimum function
Natural: Slightly rounded shape with very pointed canines.
Young: Round shape with longer canine teeth
Oval: Round shape with rounded canines and incisors.
Be sure to consider the shape of your face when choosing a veneer. Most faces fall into four main shape categories: heart, oval, round, and square. Every face type has an optimal tooth size and shape to balance features and make you look your best.
Heart-Shaped: Heart-shaped faces work better with rounded and shorter coats.
Oval Shaped: Faces that are more oval in shape look better with square teeth that help to widen and plump the face.
Round Shaped: Round faces look better with longer and more defined coats.
Square Shaped: Square faces with clear jawlines look better with round teeth as they soften the features.
