Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile and all-encompassing cosmetic dentistry treatments available. If you have multiple aesthetic complaints about the appearance of your smile, chances are, getting veneers will fix them all. Whether large or small, this smile makeover will change your teeth for the better – and change your life. Here are just some of the problems that porcelain veneers can fix.
Maybe you didn’t get braces when you were a teen. Maybe you did wear braces but your teeth shifted back to their original positions. Either way, you don’t want brackets, wires, or aligners now – you want the quickest and most effective solution possible. Veneers can cover up misalignment, crooked teeth, and gapped teeth. Instead of a year or two of orthodontic treatment, you can have a perfect smile in just two visits to your Hampton cosmetic dentist.
2. Stains and Discoloration
There are some people who have tooth enamel that simply cannot be bleached, even with professional-grade bleaching agents. Antibiotic stains will never go away with brushing or whitening – they developed along with the tooth itself and are a permanent part of it, calcified in the tooth during childhood before the tooth even erupts. Some people have discolored teeth naturally that are tinted yellow or dull simply because of DNA. Veneers cover up one or multiple stained teeth for a flawless smile.
Problems like gum damage or worn teeth on one side of the mouth contribute to the appearance of a crooked, asymmetrical smile. Teeth look longer on one side of the mouth than the other. Sometimes this can be caused by teeth grinding or gum recession. Veneers correct this imbalance, addressing each tooth uniquely and designing each veneer to create a smile that is symmetrical in both shape and size.
4. Narrow Smile
Teeth that are out of proportion are responsible for a narrow-looking smile where the canines or pre-molars are situated behind the teeth in front of them. You may covet a wide, broad smile that fills your mouth instead of leaving dark spaces at the corners. Porcelain veneers can make this happen by building out crowded or oddly shaped teeth. Every veneer is customized in size, shape, length, color, and thickness to build a natural-looking smile in proportion to your mouth.
Some people embrace the quirkiness in their smile – a crooked tooth, oversized front teeth, a friendly gap. Other people consider these traits undesirable irregularities and they would do anything to get rid of them. They want a smile that is attention-grabbing for its consistency, not its interruptions. Veneers cover up things like short teeth, teeth that don’t erupt fully, and small teeth, concealing every problem that haunts you about your smile and making it look natural in shape and size.
