4 Problems Porcelain Veneers Can Fix

problems porcelain veneers can fix midtown dr michael j weiYou don’t love spending time at the dentist. We get it. We’re not offended. We also understand that you want a perfect smile and realize you must put in some time to get it. Porcelain veneers are a smile makeover solution that give you the most bang for your buck and only take two visits to your NYC dentist to complete. Best of all, veneers fix every cosmetic complaint you have about your smile.

Here are just some of the problems porcelain veneers can fix:

1. Misalignment

If you have crooked, misaligned, or gapped teeth but the last thing you want is braces to correct them, porcelain veneers get the job done. Veneers conceal every imperfection and create a straight smile. Instead of months and years of orthodontic treatment, no matter how discreet, your aligned smile will be complete in a matter of weeks, and every other smile imperfection will be wiped away too thanks to the magic of veneers.

2. Narrow Smile

Crowding and oddly shaped teeth can create a narrow-looking, disproportionate smile – instead of your teeth spreading out and filling in the corners of your smile, there is dark space. Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps is a good example of someone with a narrow smile – his canines and premolars are behind the teeth in front of them instead of flaring out to create a wide smile. Veneers give you a white, broad smile so all people see is teeth and no negative space.

3. Tetracycline Stains

If you used antibiotics as a child, you may have developed tetracycline stains on your permanent teeth as they grew under the gums. The drug can become calcified in the tooth, permanently marking it. There is no way of knowing whether this negative side effect happened until adult teeth erupt in childhood, and by then it’s too late to do anything about it. Teeth whitening doesn’t work on tetracycline stains, but veneers do. Whether you have one stained tooth or many, porcelain veneers cover all the discoloration.

4. Asymmetry

A crooked smile can be endearing, but if you’re the person with the asymmetrical smile you may not be a fan of it at all. A balanced smile is attractive and only draws attention to itself for its beauty. Asymmetry can develop because of teeth grinding, which leads to problems like gum recession or worn teeth. Your teeth can look like they’re longer on one side of the mouth than the other. Porcelain veneers address every tooth and correct it to eliminate the imbalance.
