Is your smile perfect? If you’re like most people, there are some things about it that you’d like to change. Cosmetic dentistry offers people many options that will help them improve their smile, but none quite like porcelain veneers. That’s because veneers can fix so many different types of smile problems, and they are easy to wear and maintain. Here are a few of the dental problems that porcelain veneers can fix.
Teeth Resistant to Traditional Whitening
Stained or yellow teeth can have a dramatically negative affect on a smile. But some people have let their go for so long that their “starting point” is so yellowed that teeth whitening can’t get them to an acceptable level of white. Other people were given tetracycline (an antibiotic) when they were children, and the teeth discoloration that resulted from it is difficult to treat. Other people drink or eat vast amounts of tea, coffee, red wine, blueberries and other teeth staining substances and even if they get their teeth whitened, they will soon become yellowed again. Luckily cosmetic dentistry experts have addressed these issues by using porcelain veneers. These extremely thin veneers are placed over the tooth in order to mask the stains and present a new white “tooth” in its place.
Change the Shape of Your Teeth
When you were younger, your teeth were rounded at the ends, but as you age, teeth become flatter, shorter and even develop rough edges. Cosmetic dentistry experts use porcelain veneers to reshape the teeth, which will make your smile look healthier and younger.
Change the Size of Your Teeth
Have you ever seen someone who has teeth that are too small for their mouth? What about those who have large teeth that seem to dominate their face? Porcelain veneers can fix teeth that are too large or too small by covering them. Dr. Hoffman will either file down large teeth or build up small ones, and then bond the porcelain veneers to them. The result will be a new smile that is in perfect proportion to your face.
Fill in the Gaps
Some people think a gap in the front teeth is sexy, but others don’t like the look. For those who want to close that gap, but don’t want to wait for braces to do the trick, porcelain veneers might be the answer. At Smile Stylers, Dr. Hoffman can fill in unsightly gaps and even straighten misaligned teeth.
