5 Common Smile Flaws You Can Correct with Veneers

You want a smile you can flash with abandon, but when you look in the mirror, all you see are the problems with your teeth staring back at you. You may have lost hope of that ever-changing.

And yet, there’s hope to be had. Veneers might be the answer to your prayers — they solve more problems than you realize. Veneers are custom-made porcelain shells that adhere to the front of your teeth. They create a bright, uniform, sparkling smile you can be proud of.

Ready to learn more? Here are five common smile flaws you can easily correct with veneers, courtesy of the team at Silicon Valley Dental Associates in Sunnyvale, California.

Gapped teeth

If you have extra space between your teeth, you may be self-conscious about it. Veneers can cover those gaps, giving your teeth a uniform look. Because veneers are custom-made for each patient, gap size doesn’t matter — your dentist designs the porcelain shells just for you.

Irregularly shaped teeth

Your teeth might naturally be irregular or uneven, or you may have a tooth worn down over time, giving it a different shape than the rest of your teeth. Either way, placing veneers over irregular teeth can cover imperfections so no one will ever know.

Discolored teeth

Your teeth may be discolored from eating or drinking substances that stain them (coffee, red wine, etc.) over time. Smoking can also discolor teeth, as can certain medications.

If you’ve tried teeth whitening treatments that haven’t been effective, veneers can hide the stains and give you back the white, sparkling smile you’re missing.

Crooked teeth

If you have a minor misalignment of your teeth that doesn’t affect the function of your mouth, veneers can be a great option. They can give you a straight smile without the time and expense of orthodontics. If the alignment issue is major, however, you likely need orthodontic treatment.

Chipped or cracked teeth

You can chip or crack a tooth due to accident, injury, teeth grinding, or general wear-and-tear. A veneer can be an excellent solution to cover the broken area so your teeth look whole again.
