Summer, otherwise known as wedding season, is upon us!
Whether you're getting married or you're attending a ceremony, you want to look your best. Porcelain veneers are a wonderful option for improving your smile, and here are three cosmetic problems that veneers at our Amherst dental practice can fix.
1 – Stains and Discoloration
Have you tried whitening your teeth with little to no success? There are certain issues, such as tetratcycline staining, that can't be improved even with professional whitening products. In this case, porcelain veneers may be the solution. They're comprised of a thin sheath of porcelain that covers your tooth and hides stubborn staining. Veneers are also stain resistant, which means they don't discolor like your natural tooth and you'll never have to worry about whitening your teeth.
2 – Gaps or Spacing between Teeth
Many people live with a diastema, or a gap in between their front teeth. You might think that it will take years of orthodontic treatment to close the gap; however, porcelain veneers may be able to help. In many cases, veneers can be customized to fill in the space between your front teeth and give you that Hollywood smile you've always dreamed of. Dr. Edwards can determine if veneers will be right for your needs with a thorough examination.
3 – Size Discrepancies or Misshapen Teeth
Do you have tooth that's smaller than another? Perhaps you have a tooth that's shaped differently? Porcelain veneers can correct this problem! Because they're directly bonded to your tooth, they can cover the imperfections of your natural tooth and complement your smile.
While veneers can repair a couple of teeth, they're truly ideal for restoring an entire smile. They can be custom shaded and shaped to complement your facial structure and skin tone, giving you the dazzling smile you've always wanted.
