Although your teeth are healthy, but some of them may not be very attractive. Life experiences and maybe your genes have conspired against you to make them less than presentable when you smile.
Veneers could be a cost-effective answer to improving the appearance of stained or slightly defective teeth. Made of thin layers of life-like dental porcelain, veneers cover unsightly teeth and give them a new look with minimal tooth preparation.
Here are 4 appearance problems that Veneers can change for a more beautiful smile
Teeth Color: Teeth can become discolored for many reasons, age-related yellowing, certain foods and beverages, or tetracycline use at an early age. In other cases, better oral hygiene or whitening can restore some of the natural brightness to teeth. Veneers with life-like color that match your other teeth could be a way to permanently brighten your smile.
Teeth Shape: Teeth can be damaged, a significant mouth injury can result in chipping and tooth grinding habits could cause abnormal wear that makes the teeth appear shorter. And, you may have been born one with one or more teeth that are oddly shaped that can affect your smile. Veneers can bring a more attractive shape to your teeth.
Teeth Size: A normal tooth’s size should be proportional to the lips and the amount of gums showing. Shorter teeth can upset this proportion. Veneers can lengthen your teeth to a more appealing size. But there’s a limit, if you’ve lost a good portion of tooth structure due to disease or injury. A porcelain crown that completely covers the tooth maybe the better option.
Alignment & Spacing: Excessive gaps between teeth, crooked teeth or poor bites may require orthodontic treatments like braces. If, however, these alignment and spacing problems are minor like a slightly crooked tooth or a minute gap between the front teeth, veneers could be a more cost-effective alternative that can be achieved in less time. It’s also possible with some orthodontic situations to use veneers in conjunction with braces or other treatments.
