Nothing gets people quite as embarrassed as seeing a picture of themselves smiling only to see a set of nasty yellow teeth smiling back. If you have extremely discolored teeth or have another dental problem such as a chipped tooth, it might be time to consider dental veneers.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are a porcelain shell that looks and acts as your natural tooth but is placed over the front of your teeth giving you the appearance of straighter, whiter, and more solid teeth. By being bonded to the front of your natural teeth, dental veneers give you teh ability to enjoy the same dental functions as you would with your natural teeth.
Veneers for Discoloration
Whether you have grey or yellow tinted teeth due to medication like tetracyline or you are an avid smoker and your teeth have become severely discolored, you might have noticed that no matter how many whitening toothpastes or products you use, you will never get whiter teeth. Due to extreme staining, even in-office bleaching methods tend to not have the ability to whiten teeth. That’s where veneers come into play. By filing down all of your front teeth, you can choose a whiter looking veneer to place on top of your natural teeth and leave you with the white smile you never thought you could have.
Veneers for Chips
Having a chipped tooth can completely throw you off. Not only does it make things like chewing a lot more difficult but it can make you look a little bit like a pirate as well. Skip the dental implant procedure altogether and consider having a dental veneer placed on the top of your chipped tooth. Worried that it won’t match your other teeth? Have no fear— there are different shades of dental veneers that will match any shade of teeth, including ones that are a little bit on the dingy side.
Veneers are a great option for individuals who either want whiter teeth or have chipped teeth. Also used to enhance the shape of your teeth, fix alignment issues, or even fill in gaps between teeth, veneers are a versatile option that everyone should consider.
