No Foolin’: Veneers Can Fix Your Smile

Think about your smile for a moment. If you have a mirror handy or a recent photo that shows your teeth, take a look at that, too.

If you could change anything about your teeth, what would you change?

Believe it or not, dental veneers may be able to make that change happen for almost any problem that you have with your smile.

Veneers are one of the most versatile services in cosmetic dentistry, and they can give you results that will make a dramatic difference in your mouth in as little as a few weeks or months.

How Veneers Work

Veneers can do for your teeth what new siding can do for your house.

Let’s say your house is decades old. During that time, your house survived storms, collisions with debris, and lots of dirt. After a while, the wear and tear become more apparent on the exterior even if the structure itself remains strong.

Well, something similar can happen to your teeth. No matter how well you care for them, they will start to show wear and tear.

After decades of use, your teeth won’t be white as they once were. Depending on what you’ve eaten or your habits, you may have worn down or chipped part of one or more teeth.

New siding on the exterior of your house can make it look fresh. Likewise, veneers attached to the front of your teeth can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile.

What Veneers Can Do

Veneers are designed to make your smile look natural but better than it does today. This is the reason they are made of porcelain or a combination of materials that closely match the natural shading and shine of real teeth.

In other words, veneers look like your natural smile, only better.

And veneers can do a lot of things to change the appearance of your teeth, such as:

  • Veneers Can Make Your Teeth Look Straight

Veneers are like a shell that we can attach to the front of your teeth. When they are bonded in place, they correct flaws that you don’t like in your smile.

Two of the most common concerns that people have are crooked and crowded teeth. These can make your smile appear slightly off when you look at your reflection in the mirror. Attaching veneers to your teeth can make your teeth look perfectly aligned and parallel to one another.

  • Veneers Can Close Gaps Between Your Teeth

Different people have different thoughts on the gaps between their teeth. Michael Strahan of morning talk show fame is comfortable with the spaces in his smile, but not everyone likes having extra openings between their teeth.

If you would like your teeth to be equally spaced, veneers can make that happen.

  • Veneers Can Fix Chipped, Broken, And Worn Down Teeth.

Sometimes life happens in ways we wished that it wouldn’t. Maybe you were playing in a recreational game of softball when you took your eye off the ball just long enough that it hit you in the mouth.

Maybe you have a bad habit of biting your fingernails, and the edges of your teeth have become worn unevenly. Maybe you just tripped and fell into or onto something that chipped one of your teeth.

In all of these situations, veneers can be used to restore the appearance of a full set of complete teeth.

  • Veneers Can Whiten Your Smile.

Our teeth naturally become darker and yellower with time. Drinking coffee, tea, and soft drinks leaves stains on our teeth. So does eating pasta with delicious and colorful sauces. So does eating the tasty treats that we all enjoy from time to time.

Our teeth can change colors as a result of certain illnesses or as a side effect of some medications, too.

No matter the reason your teeth have lost their brightness, you can revive your smile with veneers.

  • Veneers Can Solve A Combination Of Problems.

Any or all of the problems we mentioned above could exist in one mouth at the same time. For patients with a combination of issues, veneers are an excellent way to fix those problems simultaneously.
