Four Ways Veneers Could Solve Your Smile Problems
Few, if any, people are born with perfect teeth. For most of us, a “Hollywood smile” is possible, but we will need a little help to get there.
You don’t have to be a movie star to have an amazing smile. In fact, we can help you create the smile of your dreams at our dentist office in Orlando, FL.
Dental veneers are one of the best tools available in our cosmetic dentistry toolbox. Veneers can fix a range of issues — which includes fixing multiple problems at the same time.
In the meantime, look over the four problems mentioned below. Find out what dental veneers could to do help with each of them.
▶ 1. Crooked smile
A common concern we hear is from adult patients who aren’t happy with the straightness of their teeth. For some, our short-term orthodontic options may be a good solution.
Even so, some people would prefer to avoid orthodontic care. Dental veneers may give you another way to change the appearance of your smile.
After removing a thin layer of enamel, we can make an impression of your teeth. The impression will be used to create a custom-fitted set of dental veneers just for you.
When your veneers are ready, one of our doctors can bond them to the front of your teeth. This can give you the appearance of a smile that is perfectly straight.
Our porcelain veneers look like natural teeth when they are bonded in place. You can use them just like you would your natural teeth, and with proper care, your dental veneers can last for decades.
▶ 2. Chipped teeth
Chipped and broken teeth are more common than we would like.
Biting into hard candies, crunchy foods, and ice can cause damage to one or more of your teeth. Using your teeth to open things or hold tools in your mouth can lead to chips as well.
And accidents and traumatic injuries to your face or mouth can make an impact on your smile.
With our porcelain veneers, we can restore multiple teeth to their original size and shape. Your teeth can look whole once again, and you won’t have to keep explaining what happened to your smile (unless you want to, that is).
▶ 3. Gaps in your smile
The technical term for this condition is diastema. This gap most often can be found between the two front teeth in someone’s smile, although you could have a gap between any two or more teeth.
If you would prefer to close your gap, dental veneers can address that issue in a relatively short time. When your dental veneers are bonded in place, they will give you the look of evenly spaced teeth throughout your smile.
▶ 4. Discolored teeth
Your first thought may be that professional teeth whitening might be a be solution. For many people with stained teeth, this may very well be the case. You should know that not all discolorations are the result of staining, however.
Many people develop dark or yellow teeth as a result of an injury or an illness. It’s also possible for some medications to cause teeth to change colors.
Another potential problem is wear and tear on your teeth. If your enamel (the outer layer of your teeth) becomes worn down, then the yellower layer of dentin underneath may start to show through.
These kinds of issues need something more than a stain remover. Thankfully, dental veneers can be shaded to be as bright and white as you would like.
If you do have stained teeth, veneers can still be an option. You may even find that the having porcelain veneers makes it easier to maintain your pearly white smile.
