Why Dental Veneers?

Do you have teeth that are chipped, stained, crooked, or gapped? If so, dental veneers could be your road to a more beautiful smile! Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the tooth to give you more uniform, dazzling smile. Having veneers applied is simple, relatively painless, and can correct common problems in just a few visits. The three most common reasons for a patient to opt for veneers are:

Worn or discolored enamel

The erosion or staining of enamel can be due to genetics, or even the consumption of dark beverages such as cola, coffee, or tea. Smoking and medications are another common reason for the discoloration. Sometimes even teeth whitening may not be a viable treatment option, since some fillings cannot usually be whitened by bleaching. Porcelain veneers can be used as an alternative, leaving you with a pearly white smile and even acting as a barrier on the teeth, making them more resistant to staining.

Uneven teeth or spacing

Teeth grinding (or even just natural wear and tear) can cause teeth to be uneven. Another cosmetic issue is spacing–some people just have abnormally spaced teeth, while others simply develop the problem with age. Porcelain veneers can reduce the size of these gaps, leaving an impressive change in their appearance.

General wear and tear

Teeth tend to sustain damage over the course of life. After all, you do use them multiple times in a day. It’s only natural for teeth to get worn down over the years, which can cause them to get cracked, chipped, or discolored. Veneers can be placed on top of the crooked teeth, reducing the size of gaps and creating a more perfectly aligned smile.
