You know you have a problem with your smile, but you’re not sure of the best way to fix it.
A veneer is a thin porcelain or resin shell permanently bonded to the front side of your tooth. Veneers are custom-made to match the color and shade of your natural teeth. The goal of veneers is to ensure your teeth have an even appearance to give you a beautiful smile.
Veneers are a solution for more dental issues than you might realize. Here are eight that veneers can correct. These are all real-world dental problems the team at Airport Dental Care in Austin, Texas, sees on a daily basis.
You may have permanent stains or discoloration on your teeth from eating certain foods, smoking, drinking dark liquids, or taking certain medications. If the stains can’t be removed with cleaning or teeth whitening, veneers can cover them and give you a brilliant white smile.
If you’ve chipped or cracked a tooth slightly through injury or accident, veneers are a great option. You don’t have to do a full tooth replacement — a veneer covers the issue to help your teeth look smooth again.
If your teeth are severely crooked, you likely need orthodontic treatment to straighten them out. But veneers can be an excellent way to make only slightly crooked teeth appear straight without the hassle and expense of orthodontic treatment.
If you have small gaps between your teeth, veneers on either side of the gap can be the perfect way to hide the gap. This technique can save you from orthodontic treatment as well.
You may have teeth that are small and short next to larger, longer teeth, making your smile appear uneven. Veneers give your teeth a uniform appearance.
Occasionally, we see patients with oddly shaped teeth. Veneers are a great way to provide a normal-looking tooth without resorting to an extraction followed by an implant.
If years of eating and drinking have worn away your enamel, leaving your teeth sensitive to hot and cold food and drinks, veneers offer a layer of protection so your teeth feel normal again.
Tooth decay can get bad enough that even a root canal and dental implant aren’t good options. One of the few remaining options is to clean out the decay and cover the tooth with a veneer. That should keep the decay from getting worse.
