Why You Need Dental Veneers

Posted on: October 16, 2017

Dental VeneersIf you find yourself constantly trying to practice how to smile without exposing your teeth, you might be an excellent candidate for dental veneers. Your teeth are part of your smile and it is only natural for the teeth to be on full display when smiling. many people hide their smiles from the world due to being self-conscious about their teeth. From gaps between teeth and a crack in a tooth to discoloration and awkward sizes, people tend to always find something they dislike about their smiles.

Fortunately, we offer dental veneers as an effective treatment method to deal with some of these issues. With dental veneers, we can change the size, shape, color, and appearance. Below are a few conditions that make the patient a strong candidate for dental veneers.

1. Chipped, cracked or broken teeth

Depending on the severity of the injury, dental veneers can be an effective solution for chipped or damaged teeth. The veneer goes right over the damaged tooth and we file it down to blend in with the surrounding teeth. We typically use dental veneers for minor chips and breaks. We normally prefer dental crowns for severe cases of exposed nerves and serious infections.

2. Extremely discolored teeth

We can also use dental veneers to change the color of one’s teeth. No matter how frequently one brushes his or her teeth, staining is a common issue everyone struggles with. An individual who drinks lots of coffee, tea or smokes cigarettes will notice a steady change in the shade of his or her teeth. Such habits can change the color of the teeth to the point where the teeth have a permanent yellowish/brownish tint to them. If whitening sessions and countless cleanings fail to change the shade of teeth, then dental veneers are a relatively painless and fast way to get a set of crystal-white teeth.

3. Worn down teeth

It is natural for the teeth to gradually wear down with age. When someone grinds his or her teeth at night, the teeth only wear down more quickly. Severely worn down teeth become flat and dull with time, leading to significant issues when one ignores professional care. Dental veneers are one of the solutions that can deal with worn down teeth.

Dental veneers provide additional support to the biting surfaces while restoring the appearance of the teeth. Thus patients can protect their teeth while also enhancing their appearance.

4. Misaligned or disfigured teeth

Not everyone is fortunate enough to be born with the perfect set of teeth. An individual might have teeth that are so misaligned that there are huge gaps in the smile. Depending on the severity of the situation, we might recommend dental veneers. While most severe cases will require other treatment options, dental veneers are a possible solution for less oral health-threatening issues.
