3 Smile Issues Addressed By Veneers

3 Smile Issues Addressed By VeneersYour smile is an important part of your face and an important part of your overall well-being. While the health of your smile is most important, the appearance of your smile can play a big role in your self-confidence and self-esteem. If you have otherwise healthy teeth that may have some cosmetic issues, it may make you feel less inclined to smile. Not smiling can lead to you not feeling happy or positive. If your smile has any issues that make you feel less confident, porcelain veneers can help to address these issues to restore your confidence. Issues like surface damage, discoloration, gaps, and unevenness can all be addressed using veneers. 

Surface Damage

There are times when damage to a tooth can be an immediate hazard. Anytime that the inner tissue of the tooth has been compromised, the tooth may need to be restored with endodontics, a crown, or sometimes even an extraction. There are times, however, that surface damage is just a cosmetic issue. Chips or cracks can be addressed with porcelain veneers.

Discolored Teeth

Whitening your teeth can be a great way to brighten up your appearance. Unfortunately, there are types of tooth discoloration that cannot be addressed with even the best of whitening treatments. This is because some discoloration comes from within the tooth. This intrinsic discoloration can be seen through the translucent enamel, but it cannot be removed from the surface since it is beneath it. Covering the teeth with customized porcelain veneers can be a great way to still achieve that brighter smile.

Gaps and Unevenness

Gaps between teeth can be closed using veneers. Some smaller gaps may be able to be closed using cosmetic bonding, but larger gaps will usually need to be addressed using veneers. If you have teeth that are uneven in shape or size, porcelain veneers can provide symmetry to your smile.
