Having a beautiful smile isn’t “just” about the cosmetic effect — it can have a big effect on your confidence and self-esteem, too. That’s because your smile is one of the first features most people notice, so it makes sense you want it to look its best.
Unfortunately, perfect smiles rarely occur “naturally.” Most of us need a little help. And for plenty of people, beautiful dental veneers provide a great solution.
Made of durable porcelain, veneers are individually shaped and tinted so they blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth, creating a picture-perfect smile without extensive, time-consuming intensive dental work. Best of all, veneers can be applied in just a couple of office visits.
Here at Hugh Rosenblatt, DMD, in Boynton Beach, Florida, Dr. Rosenblatt and our skilled team offer state-of-the-art veneers to correct an array of cosmetic dental concerns. Whether you have a single tooth that’s bothering you or you’re interested in an entire smile makeover, here are five ways veneers can help you attain the results you’re looking for.
Superficial tooth stains from foods or poor oral hygiene can often be remedied with professional whitening treatments featuring clinical-strength solutions designed to lift away stubborn stain molecules. But for as effective as these treatments can be, they aren't designed to correct discoloration that happens inside the tooth.
Metabolic disorders, trauma to your tooth or mouth, and long-term use of certain medications are all possible causes of deep, intrinsic enamel discoloration. Root canal therapy or damage to the tooth’s nerves or blood vessels can also cause internal staining and darkening.
For these deeply stained teeth, veneers provide a perfect solution. Because they’re tinted to match your surrounding teeth, veneers blend in perfectly as they conceal dark teeth, giving you a naturally beautiful, confident smile.
Cracks and chips detract from the appearance of your smile, and they can also lead to additional problems if not treated. What’s more, even a single chip can make your smile look worn and uncared for.
Applied to the surface of your teeth using a strong bonding agent, veneers provide a cosmetic solution for visible cracks and chips, helping your smile look symmetrical and attractive. At the same time, veneers help strengthen the damaged tooth for added protection.
Gapped teeth certainly have an aesthetic impact on your smile, but they can also cause problems with clear speaking. Because it’s easier for food particles, plaque, and bacteria to access more of your tooth surface, they may even increase your risk of decay or gum disease.
Veneers close up those gaps, improving your smile aesthetics and proving an extra barrier to protect your teeth from damage. Plus, they can even improve the appearance of slightly misaligned, or crooked, teeth.
Smile symmetry is often taken for granted. But if your teeth are smaller than average, you may show a lot of gums when you smile or speak, and that can have a big effect on how your smile looks (and on your confidence, too).
Veneers are custom made, which means we can craft them to help “right-size” your teeth so your smile is aesthetically symmetrical. In fact, veneers are a very popular solution for the common cosmetic problem known as a “gummy smile.”
Years of biting and chewing can eventually wear down your tooth surfaces, instantly aging your smile. If you have a habit of grinding your teeth while you sleep, or if you have very soft tooth enamel, wear and tear can become apparent well before middle and older age.
Veneers can be used to treat a single tooth or several teeth, which means you can enjoy the results you want without anything “extra.” In just a couple of visits, those heavily worn teeth can appear healthy and sound.
Comfortable, beautiful, and completely customizable, porcelain veneers can correct a variety of cosmetic concerns without prolonged, costly treatment.
