Most people wish they could change something about their teeth, whether that be their shape, color, alignment, or general appearance. Thanks to advancements in cosmetic dentistry, the possibilities are endless for people who want to correct cosmetic imperfections in their teeth. At Constitution Dental, our dentists use porcelain veneers to cover up cracked or chipped teeth, as well as yellow teeth that have been stained from certain foods, drinks, and chemicals (like those in cigarettes). Here are three main reasons to consider dental veneers:

You Have Cracked Or Chipped Teeth

One of the most common reasons why patients choose porcelain veneers is that their teeth have minor cosmetic imperfections, such as cracks, chips, and small fractures. Dental veneers are thin porcelain tooth coverings that can be shaped to fit the teeth perfectly, covering up any cosmetic issues while providing a strong surface that will provide lasting protection for your teeth. So, if you clench or grind your teeth, or you’ve suffered a facial injury that has resulted in chipped teeth, porcelain veneers might be the best option for you.

Your Teeth Are Stained Or Discolored

The beauty of porcelain veneers is that they can greatly improve the appearance of your teeth while still looking perfectly natural. Often patients with stained teeth or tooth discoloration will turn to porcelain veneers instead of teeth whitening treatments because they address multiple areas that you might be self-conscious about, such as the color and shape of your teeth. Plus, home teeth whitening kits and natural teeth whitening treatments like baking soda take much longer to produce the desired results than stunning porcelain veneers do.

You Have Tooth Gaps

In addition to covering up cracked, chipped, and yellow teeth, porcelain veneers can also be used to reshape your teeth and fill in undesirable gaps. Many people with tooth gaps are self-conscious about their smile and wish their teeth fit together perfectly without having to get Invisalign® or braces. This is possible with dental veneers! Our dentists can customize your smile to look exactly how you want by filling in tooth gaps and blending them in with the surrounding teeth. You’d be amazed at how much confidence you’ll have when your tooth gaps are gone and your veneers make your smile look amazing.
