When Should You Consider Veneers?

Veneers are extremely thin tailor made shells that cover the teeth and adjust the shape, size, length, and color to give you a symmetrical and beautiful smile that you are proud to flash at any occasion. They are made from different materials such as porcelain, and they provide many of the same natural qualities as your teeth already have. While veneers aren’t going to be for every dental patient, many people find that they are right for them. Here we explore when you should consider veneers and if they are the right choice for you.

To cover gaps and chips

If you have teeth with gaps, chips, or cracks, veneers will cover up these trouble spots and provide patients with the natural shape of the tooth. This will not only help with aesthetics, but the way your teeth settle in your mouth will also be more comfortable.

To improve misalignment

Veneers can help the appearance of teeth that are misaligned and can take the place of braces if you are considering alternatives to this. Because they will be able to adjust the size and shape of the tooth, your teeth swill be straighter, and it will show in your smile.

To cover stains

As we age, stains will appear due to drinking coffee, red wine, and eating foods dark in color. Discolorations are hard to avoid over time, and veneers will be a fantastic solution to give you a brighter and whiter smile. While whitening techniques are available and you should speak with your dentist about your options, be sure you don’t rule out veneers!

To improve worn teeth

If your teeth are worn down from grinding, chewing, and other wear and tear issues we put our chompers through, patients discover that veneers correct these problems. Any irregularities will be transformed back to the natural appearance, and you can laugh, smile, and speak with confidence.
