Are you one of those people who never opens his or her mouth during photographs with family and friends? If you've never liked the look of your smile, you need to know that you are not alone and that there is a viable solution. Today, more and more dentists are installing porcelain veneers for patients who want an improved smile. Here are just some of the things this solution can do for you.
Get Rid of Empty Space
Does your smile suffer from gaps? If you have too much space in between some teeth, veneers can eliminate these gaps and make your smile much less distracting.
Make Your Teeth White Again
Are your teeth badly discolored? If your teeth have lost their natural whiteness and not have a faded or yellow look to them, a veneers installation can get you back on track. You'll be able to smile and dazzle those around you with confidence when they see your bright white teeth.
Alter Tooth Shape
Is your smile mostly put together okay but you have a couple of teeth that are oddly shaped? Veneers can make your teeth either wider or longer and ensure that all of your teeth have an even look to them, allowing you to smile with more confidence.
While veneers are more commonly used to fill in gaps between teeth, they can also be used to help fix teeth that are too crowded. If your smile is distracting because you have teeth that overlap with each other, veneers can straighten things out. This has the added benefit of allowing you to brush and floss your teeth with greater ease.
Fix Chips and Cracks
If your tooth has suffered a crack or a chip due to tooth decay or getting involved in some kind of physical altercation, veneers can make it look like nothing ever happened
Porcelain veneers can fix all of the problems listed above. These veneers resemble a thin shell that can be fitted into your mouth anywhere you need to fix a cosmetic problem. They will blend in naturally with your teeth and when installed correctly, it's almost impossible to tell that the patient has had any work done.
If your smile is suffering from a chipped or crack tooth, tooth discoloration, overcrowding, gaps between teeth, or poorly shaped teeth, contact dentists like Aaron G Birch, DDS PC today to figure out if porcelain veneers are right for you.
