What Aesthetic Imperfections Can Porcelain Veneers Fix? 

Stained or Discolored Teeth 

Some people have DNA that causes their teeth to appear naturally yellow or dull. Moreover, others develop antibiotic stains permanently calcified in their teeth during childhood, even before their teeth erupt. While daily brushing and flossing can remove specific stains, these oral hygiene practices won’t be enough to remove these stubborn stains and whiten teeth. 

You can eliminate stained teeth or discoloration with porcelain veneers and have a whiter and brighter smile. Your dentist will help you choose the exact shade of white you’d like your teeth to be. Moreover, they’ll customize your veneers to ensure that they seamlessly blend with your natural teeth.   

Chipped or Cracked Teeth 

Chipped or cracked teeth are vulnerable to oral health concerns. Furthermore, chewing your favorite foods can be challenging because of the chips and cracks that impede your bite. Whether the damage resulted from an injury or years of wear and tear, porcelain veneers can cover up your teeth’s jagged or uneven edges while preventing further damage.

Worn-Down Teeth 

Bruxism is a condition in which the patient unconsciously clenches or grinds their teeth. Unfortunately, chronic grinding causes them to wear down their teeth over time. If you have worn-down teeth, your dentist can use porcelain veneers to give you a new smile. However, you’ll have to address bruxism before considering this smile makeover option. 

Misshapen Teeth 

While some patients are born with uneven or irregularly shaped teeth, others have microdontia, a condition in which one or more teeth are smaller than they should be. Since adults with microdontia look like they have baby teeth, they’re usually self-conscious about their smile’s appearance. Since porcelain veneers can make your teeth more uniform in shape and size, they’re ideal for correcting misshapen teeth. 

Gapped Teeth 

Whether you didn’t get braces as a teen or you did wear them but your teeth shifted back to their wrong positions, you’ll benefit from using porcelain veneers. They’re the quickest and most effective solution to gaps between teeth. Your dentist places the veneers over your gapped teeth to eliminate the empty spaces and give you a more naturally-looking and straighter smile.  

Crooked or Overcrowded Teeth 

Overlapped or slightly crooked teeth are prone to decay and cavities. Porcelain veneers will not only straighten your smile, but they’ll improve your overall oral health as well. Unlike orthodontic treatments that may take a year or two to complete, porcelain veneers can address this problem in just a few visits.  

Tooth Sensitivity 

Tooth sensitivity can cause you to wince in pain when your teeth come in contact with hot or cold foods and beverages. Since porcelain veneers provide an extra layer of protection, they act as a barrier between your teeth and anything that may trigger pain or discomfort when eating or drinking.
