Dental veneers can correct cosmetic issues and protect your teeth.
You know veneers can offer you a brilliant smile. But did you know veneers also help to restore function and protect already vulnerable teeth from further damage?
1. Veneers protect and restore chipped or broken teeth.
The enamel on our teeth is the strongest substance in our bodies, but it’s also very brittle. This means that while they’re incredibly hard to scratch, even with steel, our teeth are vulnerable to breaking or chipping. Veneers are a long-lasting way to revitalize and protect a tooth that has become chipped or has suffered a small break.
2. Cracked teeth can be renewed and protected by veneers.
If one of your teeth cracks, a veneer is a great way to restore it. The veneer will also act as a barrier, preventing bacteria from getting into the crack and causing more serious dental issues. With the help of veneers, you can rest assured that your smile doesn’t just look healthy and beautiful—it is healthy and beautiful!
3. Veneers can restore worn teeth to their former glory.
Worn teeth can start to affect the appearance of your smile, but veneers can restore your teeth and improve your entire smile. Since veneers are matched carefully to the color and gloss of your natural teeth, no one will know they’re even there.
4. Veneers can restore the appearance of damaged teeth while protecting them from further harm.
Since veneers sit on the surface of your teeth, they provide added protection by helping to prevent breaking, chipping, and potentially reducing sensitivity.
5. Veneers can give you a white, picture-perfect smile.
Unfortunately, there are stains that whitening treatments can’t remove from your teeth. These stains can be caused by the use of certain antibiotics during childhood, an injury to a tooth during its development, and too much fluoride in the water you drank as a child. If you have these stains, there’s hope!
6. Oddly shaped teeth can be transformed into a beautiful smile with veneers.
If your teeth are unevenly or oddly shaped, veneers can be placed over your teeth to make them appear even in length and shape. You can completely transform the appearance of your smile, choosing the shape, shade, and length of your veneers to give you your ideal grin.
7. You can avoid braces by using veneers to erase the gap in your smile.
Braces can certainly fix the gap in your teeth, but if your teeth are already straight, the cost and length of time treatments with braces usually involve may not seem worth it. If you’re looking for a quick, less expensive solution for the gap in your teeth, veneers are a great option. In just a few visits to our office, the gap in your smile will be gone for good.
8. Veneers can help crooked teeth appear straight.
Crooked teeth can make some people a little self-conscious about their smiles, but veneers can make slightly crooked teeth appear straight. They may not work for severely crooked teeth, but they allow many patients to avoid the expense and time investment of braces—while still getting the winning smile you’ve always wanted.
9. Veneers can protect thinned enamel from wear.
As you age, your enamel thins naturally, but other factors can speed this process up—from lifestyle choices like diet to medications and genetics. If you want to prevent the pain and sensitivity that can result from thinned enamel, you can protect your enamel from further wear by acting early. Placing veneers on your teeth protects the enamel and ensures that your teeth will look and feel great.
10. Weakened teeth can be fitted with veneers to protect them from damage.
If your teeth have become weakened from damage and are prone to chipping, cracking, or breaking, veneers can provide your teeth with a protective layer. The veneers work almost like a shield, with the durable porcelain placed over the surface of your teeth. This helps protect them from damage, possibly saving you pain and money in the long run by preventing one of your teeth from a major break.
