Top 10 Reasons Patients Choose Dental Veneers:
1: To Repair Cracked, Decayed or Chipped Teeth
Cracked and chipped teeth are unsightly and may make teeth looked older then they are. Chipped teeth are often more prone to decay and sensitivity. Cracked teeth can break more easily. Veneers can cover up cracks and repair chips, making the teeth appear more even and your smile more youthful.
2: To Correct Irregular, Misshapen or Uneven Teeth
Unlike some cracks, chips and decay, there’s nothing you can do to prevent an irregular or misshapen tooth, but if you were born with unsightly teeth, you can cover them up with veneers. Sometimes as little as one veneer over an obviously irregular tooth can make a smile stunning. Best of all, the veneer is minimally invasive and you can retain most of your natural tooth underneath.
3: To Correct Gaps and Crookedness
For many, braces are not an option. Veneers are a great alternative for closing gaps between teeth and correcting crooked teeth. Veneers have the added benefit of time – braces can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Veneers can be done in as little as two appointments.
4: To Whiten Discolored Teeth
Often patients have discoloured teeth – sometimes from having had a root canal on the tooth, sometimes from trauma, or even for unknown reasons. If a discoloured tooth is too dark for teeth whitening to make a difference consider a veneer. Porcelain veneers have the added benefit of being stain resistant which will make your smile brighter and whiter longer.
5: To Protect and Strengthen Teeth
Teeth with many fillings or root canal treatments can become weak and more prone to fracture. Once applied veneers can help strengthen and reinforce such teeth.
Veneers are one of our most popular procedures and a great way to achieve the youthful, bright smile you deserve.
