Addressing Smile Issues With Porcelain Veneers

January 8, 2018

Studies show that using your facial muscles to smile can be a great way to improve your mood and build confidence. However, if your smile makes you feel insecure, you may find yourself doing it less often. If specific issues with your smile’s appearance like deep discoloration, uneven gaps or spacing, or cosmetic damage are keeping you from smiling, there are ways to improve it. Porcelain veneers can be a great way to help you address several different cosmetic issues. 

Discoloration Within the Tooth

Tooth discoloration that only lives on the surface of teeth can usually be removed by a whitening treatment. Unfortunately, when discoloration comes from below the surface, not even professional-grade whitening will be able to remove it. Porcelain veneers can be created to match the desired shade and color of your teeth. Veneers are applied to the front of the teeth to cover up any discoloration that cannot be removed.

Uneven Spacing and Gaps

Sometimes uneven or wide spacing between teeth can make them appear crooked even if they are properly aligned. Porcelain veneers can help make your smile look more symmetrical and straight. If you have a gap that you like but worry it may be too large, veneers can be created to close it just enough to make you feel confident.

Insignificant Surface Damage

Any damage to your tooth can be harmful to the health of that tooth, which makes it important to visit your dentist as soon as you can to protect the health of your tooth. When tooth damage only affects the surface, such as a small chip or crack, a cosmetic treatment like porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding may be able to restore the tooth back to its original appearance.
