Not happy with your smile when you look in the mirror?
Chances are, veneers can fix your smile issues with minimal fuss. They’re less complicated to install than you might think, and once you have them, you may wonder why you waited so long.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that attach to the fronts of teeth to improve cosmetic appearance. They’re custom-made to match the shape and color of your teeth; most people won’t know you have them.
Here at Smile Design Manhattan in the Midtown West neighborhood of New York City, we specialize in improving smiles with veneers. Here are eight common problems they can resolve.
If you have a small gap between your teeth, you don’t necessarily need braces to close the gap. Putting veneers on the teeth around the gap hides the space and gives you an even smile.
If your teeth are stained by dark food or drink (such as wine or coffee), smoking, or injury, you might try teeth whitening first. If that doesn’t give you the results you seek, veneers can cover the discoloration and give you a dazzling white smile.
Chipped or broken teeth
If you’ve experienced physical damage to your teeth, such as chips, cracks, or small breaks, veneers are a great solution to cover that damage (as long as the teeth are otherwise healthy). Veneers can even add stability to teeth, making them stronger.
Think your teeth are uneven or misshapen? Veneers can solve that problem. Covering oddly shaped teeth with veneers designed especially for your mouth gives your teeth a uniform look all the way across.
If you have a serious alignment issue, you need orthodontic treatment to resolve the problem. But if your teeth are only slightly crooked, there’s no need for extended treatment with braces. Adding veneers over the crooked teeth gives you straight, even teeth that look fantastic.
If your teeth look worn down and old from a lifetime of working hard, veneers can bring them back to life.
If you think your teeth are too small or short, veneers can provide that extra length to make sure all your teeth line up correctly.
What you eat and drink over the years can cause the enamel on your teeth to wear off, making them more sensitive to hot and cold food and drinks. Veneers can provide a layer of protection to prevent sensitivity and strengthen your teeth.
