6 Smile Flaws That Can be Corrected With Veneers

Veneers can address many aesthetic dental problems.

Whether you’re smiling less these days due to misaligned or chipped teeth, dental veneers – ultra-thin porcelain shells permanently applied to the surface of teeth — can provide a simple, long-term, and cost-effective solution.

At Westmark Family Dentistry in Sumter, South Carolina we’ve improved the smiles of countless men and women with porcelain dental veneers. Here are some of the most popular ways:

1. Whiten and brighten

Veneers are not only color-matched to your natural teeth, but they also hide stains that don’t respond to teeth whitening. What’s more, your new veneers are made of stain-resistant porcelain, so they’ll stay that way, even as you enjoy red wine or blueberries.

2. Cover cracks and chips

Chips and cracks occur for a variety of reasons, from automobile accidents to sports injuries. Regardless of the cause, veneers hide the damage.  In addition, they provide needed strength and support to your damaged teeth.

3. Correct the appearance of alignments

Unhappy with jagged or snaggled teeth? Veneers can remedy both. If you’re self-conscious over a single irregularly shaped tooth, several teeth, or every all of your teeth, veneers deliver a natural, yet uniform look.

4. Lengthen tiny teeth

Whether your teeth have always been small or have worn down over time, veneers can make them appear longer. They can also be used to correct a “gummy” smile.

5. Smooth the surface

Over time, teeth can form craters and bulges on the surface, creating an uneven texture and appearance. Craters also can cause teeth to degrade quickly by providing bacteria, plaque, and food particles a place to fester. Yet with veneers, you can eliminate these bumps and divots, creating a smooth finish on your teeth and eliminating secret hiding spots of decay.

6. Fill the gaps

At Westmark Family Dentistry, we also use veneers to close gaps and spaces between your teeth. It doesn’t matter if the gaps have always been there or have resulted from a worn down tooth, these porcelain teeth covers create the appearance of full, strong teeth without gaps or spaces. While this improves how your smile looks, it may also improve how your teeth and jaw function.

Why wait?

A confident smile instills self-confidence and imparts an appealing image to others, personally and professionally. So don’t wait. Whatever your flaw, Westmark Family Dentistry can help. There’s a good chance porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution. To find out, call our book a consultation online today.
