3 Problems You Can Fix With Dental Veneers
- July 1, 2016
What do you remember most when you meet someone for the first time?
For many of us, smiles (or lack thereof) create our first impression of a person. Teeth reveal a lot about us.
A warm, white smile suggests a person who is friendly and healthy. On the other hand, a person who is embarrassed by his or her teeth may be hesitant to smile. This may make them seem unfriendly and more sour or sad than happy.
One way or another, our smiles affect how other people remember us.
At the Robert I. Hlavac, Dental Corporation, office, we want to help you have the kind of smile that people want to remember for all the right reasons.
It’s also one of the reasons that we offer veneers at our Concord, CA, dentist office.
Three Ways You Could Benefit From Veneers
Cosmetic dentistry remains popular because it’s usually about than just having a nice smile. We have an emotional attachment to our teeth, even if we don’t think about it.
Think about the people you know who smile easily and often. They seem confident and comfortable in most any situation.
If you are ashamed of your smile for any reason, this can make everyday encounters more difficult. If you are worried about someone seeing your teeth or about someone judging you because of your teeth, you may feel unsure about what to do when meeting new people, whether it’s for work or for personal reasons.
That’s also why we are proud to offer veneers for our patient. They can be used to fix a number of issues, and they can completely transform your smile in a few weeks.
To help you understand, here are three issues that you could correct with veneers.
- Misaligned Teeth
Very few people are born with perfect teeth. Maybe it would be more accurate to say, it’s rare for someone’s permanent teeth to emerge perfectly in their mouths.
You may know someone with a perfect smile, but more than likely they had some help getting it. Maybe they wore braces when they were younger. Maybe they had a problematic tooth removed.
Maybe, just maybe, they already have veneers.
Veneers are a shell that can be bonded to the front of your teeth. Much like siding can completely change the exterior appearance of a house, veneers can change the appearance of your smile.
Veneers won’t straighten your teeth, but they can make it look like your teeth are perfectly straight.
And that can make a huge difference in your smile.
- Uneven Spacing Between Teeth
Spacing issues can affect people in a couple ways.
In some cases, the available space in your jaw is at a premium. Your permanent teeth may have been fighting for space when the erupted. It’s also possible that things were fine until your wisdom teeth erupted and pressed your teeth into one another.
The end result is that some or all of your teeth many be crowded together. This may have caused some of your teeth to turn sideways just to fit in.
Crowding is only one possible spacing issue, however. Millions of Americans are affected by diastema, which is a space or gaps between teeth. You could have a single gap in the center of your mouth. You could have gaps in other locations as well. You may even have more than one gap.
No matter what spacing issues affect your teeth, veneers can change their appearance. When your veneers are bonded in place, you teeth will look like they are evenly spaced and parallel to one another.
- Damaged Teeth
Teeth can get damaged a lot of ways. You may have a chipped or broken tooth as a result of an accident during company softball game or an accident with a hammer while doing chores around the house.
Your teeth can become worn down, too, from the things that you eat, from grinding your teeth together, or from some other reason.
A set of veneers can rebuild your teeth so they look whole once again.
