What Should You Consider

Color

Your dentist will show you a standardized dental color chart that features categories for a wide range of tones. It’s best to select one that’s a couple of shades lighter than your natural teeth. Also, it would help if you weren’t going whiter than the white part of your eyes.

If your skin tone is fair, you should select from the whitest colors available. You can make your teeth appear white if your skin color and the shade of your veneers contrast. Alternatively, if your skin tone is darker, avoid the bleaching tooth shades and choose from the naturally occurring shades.

Face Shape

Most faces fall into four shape categories which include round, oval, heart, and square.  Each of these shapes has an ideal tooth shape and size that can balance a person’s features and look their best. Needless to say, the shape of your dental veneers should complement your face shape.

If you have a round-shaped face, you’ll want to choose longer and thinner veneers to make your face look slimmer. Alternatively, if you have an oval-shaped face, you should choose shorter and wider veneers to add fullness to your face.

Moreover, rounded and shorter veneers are your best bet if you have a heart-shaped face. Lastly, if you have a square-shaped face, rounded veneers can soften your defined jawlines.

Gender

Rounded veneers can make you look more feminine. However, if you’re looking to have a more masculine smile, choose square-shaped veneers.

Age

If you want to look younger, you can choose rounded veneers with longer canines.
