5 Ways They can Improve Your Smile That You Didn't Know About

If you find yourself hiding your smile due to teeth you’re not proud of when you’re in front of cameras, colleagues, or friends, veneers can help. The custom shells, which are usually made of porcelain, can cover your front teeth to enhance their overall appearance.

David E. Willey, DMD, provides custom veneers at his practice in Sebring, Florida. If you want to flaws in your teeth quickly, here are five reasons to consider veneers.

1. Reduce spaces between teeth

It’s easy to think of braces when considering ways to pull teeth together, but veneers can provide very similar benefits. Gaps between your teeth can be closed by putting on veneers that fill the gaps. While cosmetic bonding can help close gaps, too, porcelain veneers tend to last a good deal longer.

2. Conceal chips and signs of wear and tear

Veneers can also enhance your smile by covering up chips in your teeth from minor injuries as well as signs of wear and tear that can crop up over time. Once your veneers are in place, you’ll have a more consistent smile. This type of symmetry makes many patients smile more confidently.

3. Whiter, brighter teeth

Many teeth whitening treatments exist, but when you have permanently discolored teeth, little works like veneers to brighten your smile. For the best results, Dr. Willey might suggest that you whiten any surrounding teeth and then have your veneers matched to that tone. This can be especially important if you’re only getting one or two veneers.

4. Straighter teeth

Straighter teeth is a result more often associated with braces. But, if you have teeth that have minor crookedness, veneers can fix these issues quickly without the cumbersome process involved with braces. In this case, your dentist may reshape your teeth before adding the veneers to achieve a straighter look.

5. Improve care habits

Many patients who choose veneers end up paying more attention to dental hygiene practices. When you’ve made an investment and feel happier about your smile, you may well feel more motivated to take care of it. So one important byproduct of veneers can be the long-term smile benefits that result from routine brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings.
