Have you ever looked at someone and were unable to look away because of their smile? And we’re not just talking about your significant other; we’re talking about those people with stunning smiles full of beautiful teeth. If your smile is any less than those smiles you are fawning over, maybe it is time to talk to your dentist about porcelain veneers.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are an increasingly popular cosmetic dentistry method of correcting tooth defects or blemishes, such as misalignment, gaps, stains, and minor chipping. Made of a strong porcelain material designed to last a lifetime, they can reshape your teeth and create a beautiful symmetrical smile that looks and feels natural.

Porcelain veneers can help solve the following problematic dental scenarios:

As we said above, porcelain veneers have become a popular way to correct imperfections such as tooth misalignment, gaps, stains, and minor chipping. But there are other scenarios that this treatment can correct too. Let’s take a look at 6 situations in which veneers can give you the smile you have longed for.

1. Color Correction

More and more patients visit Laurel Manor Dental in The Villages, Florida, because even professional teeth whitening isn’t giving them their desired outcome. And though teeth whitening is a common cosmetic dentistry procedure and is wildly successful, there are times when your teeth are just too far stained or discolored to get a suitable level of correction. In these instances, veneers might be the right solution.

2. Cracks

Many patients come to us for veneers to fix cracks in their teeth. Though we use dental crowns to cover cracked teeth and prevent future cavities, we can easily construct porcelain veneers to represent the perfect tooth. When placed over your existing tooth, the crack magically disappears since the veneer hides it.

3. Chips

Just as with a cracked tooth, this treatment can be placed over chipped teeth too. A single veneer can be used to repair the chip on just one of your teeth, or you may elect to get veneers on all of your front teeth, providing you with an ultimate smile makeover. In just two visits to Laurel Manor Dental, veneers will not only repair your chipped teeth, but they will also disguise gaps, hide crooked or stained teeth, and improve your bite.

4. Minor Misalignment

If you have a couple of teeth that are just a bit crooked, then this treatment may help. Crooked teeth can cause challenges for your oral health, but not always. In many cases, crooked teeth are simply an inconvenience or a cause for embarrassment, contributing to challenges with your self-esteem. Thankfully, porcelain veneers can be applied in just two appointments and can provide faster results than orthodontics that many of our more mature patients prefer to avoid.

5. Gaps 

Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry solution designed to close gaps between your teeth. So if you have some spacing between your teeth that you don’t care for, the team at Laurel Manor Dental can create veneers that are just a tad wider than your actual tooth. When affixed to the front of your teeth, they can ensure that the gap is no longer visible.

6. Oddly-shaped Teeth

By now, you are probably picking up on a common theme: porcelain veneers can solve a wide variety of scenarios. And some patients have teeth that are uneven in shape or size . Your teeth will appear more uniform in size and shape with dental veneers in place. Further, the appearance of narrow or short teeth or those with odd shapes will be eliminated.
