What Types of Issues Can You Fix with Dental Veneers?
Posted on 4/10/2018 by Dr. Pickens
Is your smile imperfect? Do you have a few little things that you would like to correct? If so, then you may want to consider if veneers would be the right answer for you.
They are a cover for your current teeth and can cover a wide range of issues with your teeth. They do not take long to put on, and with proper care, can last around ten years, sometimes more. If you have one of these issues, veneers may be the answer you have been looking for.
Dental Veneers Can Help with Many Issues
Problems with your teeth like discoloration, stains, and small gaps can be visually covered by putting on dental veneers.
They are very thin sheets of polished porcelain that adhere to your teeth, covering the problem underneath them. Most of the time, veneers do not look any different than your natural teeth would, other than hiding whatever the problem was behind the tooth.
You can cover crooked teeth, chipped or broken teeth, old fillings that left your tooth looking dark, and cracks that do not go all the way through your tooth.
Most of the time, you can put a veneer on and get a beautiful result. On rare occasions, you may wind up with a problem that is not completely covered, in which case a crown may be the better option.
