How Veneers Can Help Restore Your Smile
When it comes to restoring the look of a smile, veneers from an Edmonton family dentist such as Westmount Dental Centre offer an effective option for many people. Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured shells which are bonded to the front of your teeth, covering up any imperfections. If you've been worried about the appearance of your smile, then veneers might be a good choice for you.
There are four main cosmetic dental problems which veneers can be used to correct.
Teeth whitening treatments are usually the go-to Edmonton cosmetic dental procedure for discolored teeth. In some cases, however, it isn't going to be the best solution. Teeth which are deeply stained or which have naturally thin or dark enamel may not respond to whitening treatment as well or as quickly as a person might hope. Veneers, on the other hand, completely cover the surface of a tooth behind a natural-looking, tooth-colored shell, thereby covering any visible staining. If teeth whitening hasn't given you the result you wanted, then you can ask your Edmonton dentist about veneers.
- Chipped or broken teeth
Not only can veneers cover up discoloration, but they can cover up chips and breaks on the surface of a tooth as well. When used that way, veneers become more than just a cosmetic treatment. The bonding which is used to attach veneers to a tooth can effectively cover up these chips and cracks, preventing bacteria from entering inside of them and causing tooth decay.
- Misshapen teeth
Dental cosmetic problems can also include the shape and size of the teeth. Some teeth may be shorter or taller than others, or perhaps even noticeably larger or smaller. While minor differences in shape and size aren't too much of an issue, significant size discrepancies can cause people to feel self-conscious. Veneers from an Edmonton family dentist can be used to correct the look of misshaped teeth, helping them fit in with the rest of the surrounding teeth.
- Misaligned and crooked teeth
While more severe cases of misaligned or crooked teeth require orthodontic treatment, minor alignment issues and slightly crooked teeth can be corrected with veneers. Even small gaps between teeth can be closed up with side-by-side veneers placed on adjacent teeth. Your Edmonton dentist can let you know whether orthodontics or veneers is a better choice for your overall dental health in any of these situations.
