If you are not happy with how your teeth look, you may be able to change how your teeth look by with the use of porcelain veneers. Here are the five main issues that porcelain veneers can be used to correct.
#1 Short Teeth
Not everyone's teeth grow grow to be the perfect size. Some people have specific teeth that grow in shorter than other teeth. Although this is not generally a health issue, it can impact your ability to chew affective. It can also be unappealing visually.
If you have a few teeth that are significantly shorter than the rest of your teeth and you don't like how it looks, you can get those teeth lengthened with porcelain veneers. Adding length to your short teeth can improve the overall look of your entire mouth and help you chew more effectively.
#2 Teeth Chips
Next, teeth chips can happen naturally over time. You can chip your teeth on something you eat or you can chip your teeth in an accident. If you have a tooth that is chipped, chips as well as nicks in your teeth can be improved through veneers. Veneers can be used to make the shape of your teeth look uniform and full again.
#3 Misaligned Teeth
If your teeth are misaligned, but only by a little bit, you may not need braces to correct the issues that you have with your teeth. You may actually be able to correct the misalignment and gaps in your teeth through veneers. Your teeth can be reshaped so that all gaps are filled in and misaligned is addressed from a visual perspective, saving you a lot of time and money compared to braces. Veneers can be used to reshape one of your teeth or all of your teeth.
#4 Discolored Teeth
Finally, over time your teeth can become discolored. They can become discolored or stained for a variety of reasons, such as from smoking, drinking coffee all the time or from other health issues. Veneers are an easy way to fix the color of your teeth if whitening procedures have not fixed the discoloration of your teeth. You can even choose the color that you want teeth to be, so you can control the color and shine of your teeth.
To keep your teeth looking great, you need to make sure that you brush your teeth two to three times a day, get regular tooth cleanings and get deep cleanings when needed. Learn more by contacting services like Oral Surgery Associates Inc.
