Countless people around the world are unhappy with their smiles. Sometimes, this discontent comes from having teeth that are chipped or broken. Other times, people hide their smiles from the world because their teeth are discoloured. Fortunately, there are options available today to help people with flawed teeth regain confidence in their smiles. One of those options, porcelain veneers, are thin, custom-made shells that cover the front of the teeth, resulting in an improved appearance and, subsequently, boosted confidence.
Should I consider dental veneers?
Porcelain veneers aren't for everyone, but there are several candidates for whom they are an excellent option. Dental veneers can help correct teeth that are:
Discoloured. Tooth discoloration is extremely common; frequently consuming certain foods and drinks -- including red wine, coffee, and tea -- can stain the enamel. Additionally, teeth naturally become slightly yellow as part of the aging process. Veneers might be a good option for teeth that are discoloured.
Misshapen. Many people have teeth that are uneven or irregularly shaped; sometimes, craters or bulges are present on the teeth. In these cases, dental veneers are a possible treatment option.
Spaced irregularly. People, whose teeth are undesirably spaced, including those who have large gaps between their teeth might opt for dental veneers to correct the spacing.
Worn down. Teeth wear down for a variety of reasons. Certain foods particularly those with high acidity can wear down enamel. Additionally, Bruxism or the clenching and grinding of teeth is a common culprit behind the wearing down of teeth. Fortunately, porcelain veneers can help restore worn down teeth.
Broken. Teeth can break, chip, or fracture due to periodontal disease, decay, or trauma. Sports-related injuries are also a common cause of broken or otherwise damaged teeth. Thankfully, broken smiles can be repaired with dental veneers.
