8 Problems Porcelain Veneers Can Solve

February 6, 2018 - 8 minutes read

Porcelain veneers can solve almost all your cosmetic dental problems and can even give you a complete smile makeover. There are lots of problems porcelain veneers can solve including stained or yellowed teeth and even a gapped smile. Dayton Valley Dental Care’s cosmetic dentists have years of experience providing patients with beautiful porcelain veneers that can transform their smile into one they love. Find out what different problems porcelain veneers can solve below.

Stained or Discolored Teeth

Sometimes not even teeth whitening can give patients the bright and white smile they desire. This can be due to years of severe staining, smoking, and even medication causing discoloration. Bleaching alone may not provide the patient with the white teeth they want and may force them to consider other options. With porcelain veneers, your dentist will create thin porcelain sheets that are permanently placed over your enamel that act as shells. These shells are shaped and colored to your desired shape and color to provide you with your ideal teeth.

Your dentist in Dayton will help you choose the perfect shade for your smile so that it doesn’t look fake. This is the only way you will be able to achieve a perfect bright white smile like the ones you see on celebrities. One of the benefits of porcelain veneers is that they cannot stain. So if you have a wine or coffee addiction, you don’t need to worry about visiting your dentist regularly for whitening treatment in Dayton. The porcelain veneers will maintain their luminescent shade for years to come.

Crooked or Misaligned Teeth

The thought of undergoing an extensive orthodontic treatment may sound unsettling especially when it comes to wearing metal braces. Although there are discreet options out there like Invisalign, orthodontic treatment is painful and can be quite expensive. With porcelain veneers, your dentist may be able to straighten your teeth without orthodontic treatment. Although your teeth won’t actually straighten, they will appear to be straight.

By placing just a few porcelain veneers over your front teeth, your dentist will be able to mask the crooked or misaligned teeth with these new shells. The porcelain veneers will look completely natural and give you a smile that looks like it just underwent a complete orthodontic treatment. Talk with your dentist to find out if a few porcelain veneers can solve your crooked or misaligned teeth in one shot.

Gapped Teeth

Like crooked or misaligned teeth that usually require braces to fix, gapped teeth can also be solved with porcelain veneers. Your dentist will create porcelain veneers that are slightly wider than your teeth to be placed over your teeth and to thus hide the gaps in your mouth. This is an ideal solution for someone who may just have a gap in their front teeth and not want to commit to orthodontic treatment. It can cost less in the long run as well. You can also consider dental bonding as a solution for this as well.

Short Teeth

If your teeth are a bit short and you want to elongate them, porcelain veneers are the perfect fix for you! Other methods of lengthening your teeth may include painful procedures like gum contouring. Lengthening your teeth with porcelain veneers can eliminate the sight of a gummy smile and help give your smile a brand-new look. This can help balance your teeth for a more proportionate appearance.

Tooth Crowding

Another problem that is commonly solved with braces, tooth crowding can actually be solved with porcelain veneers. Your dentist will place veneers over your teeth that show signs of crowding to give the appearance of proper spacing between your teeth. This can save you the pain and hassle of wearing braces or Invisalign for anywhere from 6 months to a couple of years.

Cracked or Chipped Teeth

When your teeth have been damaged either from chips or cracks, your dentist may recommend you receive treatment like dental bonding which will only last a few years or get a dental crown which can be quite expensive. To treat your cracked or chipped teeth, porcelain veneers are a durable and more cost-effective solution than dental crowns. Your dentist will create a porcelain shell that matches your surrounding teeth in shape and color to go over the damaged tooth. This will protect your tooth from further damage and restore the tooth back to its natural appearance.
