How Veneers Can Fix Your Smile

Very few people are born with naturally perfect smiles. The perfect smiles that you see on screens and magazines are often cosmetically enhanced. This means that anyone can achieve a picture-perfect smile. Veneers offer a dental solution to improve the smile. 


The minimally invasive dental technique involves the use of porcelain veneers to cover tooth imperfections. If you have crooked, chipped, or discolored teeth, you can benefit from veneers. There are several ways that veneers can help fix your smile. 

 

Filling Gaps and Hiding Imperfections

If you have gaps in your teeth, veneers can help close them. The veneers will also help hide imperfections or misshapen teeth. If you have been hiding your smile behind closed lips, veneers can help solve your problem. 


The thin porcelain shells are designed to fit accurately over the teeth. The veneers closely match the teeth' color, creating a natural-looking and flawless smile. Veneers are bonded using special glue, and they can be used to replace a missing tooth or teeth.

 

Creating a Whiter and Brighter Smile

Teeth whitening can work for some people, but it is not a solution for everyone. Some people do not respond well to the whitening agents. This is especially the case when teeth are severely stained. Some medications, too much fluoride, and other factors can cause the teeth to become extremely stained. 


Veneers can cover the stains, improving the appearance of the teeth. The veneers are more resistant to staining than the natural tooth enamel. This means that teeth with veneers will remain whiter much longer.

 

Covering Chips and Cracks

Chipped or cracked teeth can have a huge impact on a person’s smile. Veneers can fix the smile by covering cracks and chips. Apart from covering the damage, they also provide added strength and resilience. 


This can provide a layer of protection that can prevent further damage. Veneers can fix several problems, but severely damaged teeth may require different treatments such as crowns or dental implants. 

 

Straightening the Teeth

A great smile includes straight teeth. Most people resort to orthodontics to straighten their teeth. The treatment is effective, but it can take months or even years to achieve the desired results. Veneers can create a straight smile without the hassle and pain of braces. 


The veneers reshape the teeth, causing them to look more aligned. The treatment is ideal for minor misalignments. If the alignment issues affect the bite or oral health, orthodontics is necessary.

 

Fixing a Gummy Smile

If you have prominent gums that overwhelm your smile, veneers can help fix this issue. The veneers are custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth. They can be used to create balance to the smile, revealing less gum and more teeth. 


Veneers can help improve oral hygiene by closing the gaps and spaces that encourage the growth of bacteria. The veneers can make it easier to brush and floss the teeth effectively. They can also reduce the wearing off of the tooth’s biting surface.
