5 Dental Flaws Veneers Can Help Remedy

dentist, pain, dental, teeth, grinding, sleep, bruxism

Veneers are thin strips of porcelain that mask dental imperfections, including gaps, chips, cracks, stains, and more. Dr. Benedict Kim at A Caring Dental Group fits veneers over your tooth’s existing enamel to enhance its color and shape.

Veneers can correct multiple flaws at once, so they can save you from undergoing multiple treatments to correct different issues. For example, if you want to close a gap and cover a stain, Dr. Kim can accomplish both at the same time by using veneers.

Additionally, dental veneers offer a less invasive option than other treatments, such as implants. Veneers don’t require anesthesia, and there is no recovery time. Your veneers function just like your natural teeth, so feel free to eat all of your favorite foods — just brush and floss properly to keep your mouth healthy.

Here are five dental flaws that veneers can solve:

1. Discolored teeth

Whatever the reason your teeth are discolored — coffee or wine stains, enamel loss, genetics — dental veneers can permanently whiten and brighten them. The porcelain is stain-resistant, so your new veneers will not only cover old stains, but they will also prevent any future stains from maring your smile.

2. Cracked or chipped teeth

Because the dental porcelain is highly durable, veneers can even address a tooth’s structural integrity. For example, veneers improve the appearance of cracked or chipped teeth, and they prevent existing chipped edges or cracks from getting worse..

3. Worn down teeth

If your teeth are worn down from grinding, acidic foods and drinks, or other causes, veneers may be your best remedy. Dr. Kim can customize your veneers to match the color and shape of your teeth, so they look completely natural in your mouth.

4. Uneven or misshapen teeth

You shouldn’t be afraid to laugh, smile, or take photos because you’re unhappy with your teeth. Porcelain veneers offer a non-invasive, relatively inexpensive way to correct teeth that have craters, bulges, or irregular shapes.

5. Gapped teeth

Visible gaps between teeth can be a source of self-consciousness or embarrassment. While you could opt for braces or aligners, those treatment options tend to be lengthy, painful, costly, and sometimes invasive. Veneers can fix minor misalignments and cover up most gaps without the need to wear braces for lengthy periods of time.
