Dental veneers have long been a popular choice for people who want to transform their smiles. They are very thin pieces of porcelain that are attached to the front of teeth. Porcelain is a material that very closely resembles tooth enamel, which makes veneers a natural looking treatment. Veneers are excellent at covering imperfections and dramatically enhancing the appearance of a person’s teeth. Some of the most common issues addressed by dental veneers include:
- Teeth that have cracked or broken. It is important to fix teeth that may have become chipped or cracked. Tooth fractures can lead to a breakdown of enamel and cause teeth to become brittle and weak. This can eventually lead to further damage to the tooth along with increased sensitivity. Veneers can help mask the breaks or cracks and can help strengthen and preserve the tooth.
- Teeth that are crooked or have minor issues with alignment. Braces are not the only way to address misaligned teeth. Perhaps you only have a few teeth that are slightly out of place. Veneers can cover those teeth to give the patient the appearance of a straight and aligned smile.
- Teeth that are resistant to whitening treatment. Teeth whitening treatment is the most popular choice to remove dark stains on the smile. However, some people have teeth that are highly resistant to teeth whitening. For those individuals, dental veneers can help them achieve that bright white Hollywood smile.
- Teeth that have multiple issues. One of the best things about veneers is that they can address multiple issues at once. Perhaps you have a few crooked teeth along with some that are dark or discolored. Veneers allow you to correct both of those problems with just one treatment.
