3 Changes Veneers Can Make To Your Smile

With that said, they may both receive the same recommendation for treatment! Porcelain veneers make many improvements possible in just two appointments. At our Dallas, TX dentist’s office, we can evaluate you and determine how veneers could help you see your desired changes to the way you look. Placing these restorations helps with problems like discoloration, damaged tooth structure, poor spacing between teeth, and more. Because they can do so much at once, their placement can help those who may assume they need to arrange several different procedures to see the improvements that they desire.

1. Veneers Can Cover Problems With Enamel Wear And Tear (Including Chips And Cracks)

The years of biting and chewing, along with any problems you have with teeth grinding and clenching, can hurt the quality of your smile. Whether your teeth are generally misshapen or affected by noticeable chips or cracks, porcelain veneers can help. These thin, durable shells are placed over the fronts of teeth. With that area of coverage, they are able to make striking improvements to their shapes and sizes while minimizing the changes they require.

2. Your Treatment Can Address Problems Attributed To Intrinsic Discoloration

Many people who look to their dentist for help with discoloration expect to undergo teeth whitening treatment. However, not everyone who wants a brighter smile receives this recommendation. Some need to address intrinsic discoloration, which refers to any changes within the tooth structure that leads to dullness or discoloration. Because veneers can cover these flaws effectively, they can produce results when the problem requires something other than just the removal of stains.

3. A Procedure Can Help You Hide Problems With Teeth Spacing

Orthodontic services are often required when patients are bothered by poor teeth spacing. However, minor gaps and overlaps can be addressed with veneers as well. If you qualify for this approach, we can give you a more symmetrical smile in as little as two appointments! By gently reshaping teeth and using veneers to close spaces left by any that are undersized, we can help you see welcome changes in a surprisingly short time.
