Could You Benefit from Veneers?

Veneers are a common cosmetic treatment used to treat a variety of dental abnormalities. They work by covering the enamel so as to restore or improve the tooth’s appearance and function. If you want to learn more about how veneers can benefit your smile, keep reading.

Big Smile

Are Your Teeth Crooked?

In some cases, your cosmetic dentist may be able to repair crooked teeth using veneers. Veneers are thin, durable caps that are glued to the surface of the teeth using a strong dental adhesive. Dentists can alter the size and shape of a tooth to make it appear more symmetrical. This solution won’t apply in all cases of crooked teeth, so you’ll need to consult with your cosmetic dentist to see if you’re a candidate for veneers. If your teeth are severely crooked, you may be a better candidate for orthodontic therapy.

Do You Suffer from Severely Stained Teeth?

Deep-set stains are often caused by smoking or consuming dark beverages, like coffee, wine, and tea. Poor dental hygiene can also contribute to the development of badly stained teeth. Once surface stains have penetrated the enamel, the teeth are less likely to respond to at-home or professional teeth whitening treatments. In this case, your cosmetic dentist may recommend composite or porcelain veneers. In this case, veneers can improve the color and integrity of your smile.

Are Cracks and Chips Threatening Your Dental Health?

Cracks and chips in the enamel can jeopardize the strength of a tooth, making it susceptible to tooth decay, infection, and further chipping. Fortunately, veneers can protect the tooth and prevent further damage to the tooth. Your cosmetic dentist will use the veneer to cover the crack or chipped portion so as to improve the appearance and durability of the tooth.
