You have probably heard of porcelain veneers as a way to perfect your smile and cover up issues like crooked or misshapen teeth. However, veneers can do so much more than that. Veneers can be used to address both cosmetic concerns and issues that interfere with your oral health and the function of your teeth. If you are considering veneers but are unsure if they are the best option for you, read on to learn more about what veneers can do.
Veneers are a great way to conceal a wide variety of cosmetic concerns that may make you self-conscious about your smile. If you have crooked, chipped, uneven, or discolored teeth, gaps between your teeth, or teeth that do not match in size or shape, veneers could be a great option for you. Veneers are bonded in place right over the front of your natural teeth and do not require any invasive surgery or healing time, making them a great option for people who want to avoid dental surgery. With veneers, it usually only takes two visits to our office to get your beautiful new smile.
Some cosmetic concerns can also affect your oral health and the function of your teeth. For instance, large gaps between teeth can trap food particles, plaque, and bacteria, which leads to tooth decay and gum disease. Chips and cracks in your teeth can irritate your gums, become infected, and make it difficult to chew and clean your teeth. Plus, if left untreated, even a small crack can spread down to the root and cause many serious problems. Veneers can be used to fix gaps between teeth as well as chipped or cracked teeth. Your smile will not only be restored in appearance, but in function and health as well.
Who Should Not Get Veneers?
Since veneers only cover the front of your teeth and not the entire tooth, you need to have generally healthy teeth to get them. Therefore, people with tooth decay or gum disease are probably not good candidates for veneers. Veneers also are not the best option if you have a severely cracked tooth, since that would most likely call for a root canal followed by placing a crown to cover the entire weakened tooth.
