6 Problems That Veneers Resolve

6 Problems That Veneers Resolve

Dental veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dental services because they can completely transform your smile. One of the most alluring aspects of veneers is that they don’t just target one type of problem. They can correct multiple cosmetic concerns.

Accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Roberto Palmieri proudly offers dental veneers here at Palmieri Dentistry in Mooresville, North Carolina. Below, he highlights six problems that you can correct with dental veneers.

6 problems that veneers resolve

Veneers, sometimes called dental laminates, are thin shells that cover the front of your teeth. Here at Palmieri Dentistry, we offer porcelain veneers and resin veneers. Both types can resolve the following problems:

1. Stubborn stains

Stained teeth are a common dental complaint, and unfortunately, even professional teeth whitening can’t remove all types of stains. Veneers, however, can cover the most stubborn stains, turning your dream of a dazzling white smile into a reality.

During your consultation, we review all of your aesthetic goals, including the shade of your new veneers. As a bonus, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant. 

2. Minor chips

Dental veneers can also hide minor chips in your teeth. Once secured, veneers can prevent chips from worsening and any sharp edges from cutting your tongue or lip. Veneers can be especially beneficial to address chips on highly visible anterior teeth.

3. Small gaps

You might think the only way to correct gaps in your teeth is with orthodontic treatment, but veneers hide small gaps too. And even if your gap is too large to conceal with veneers, we’ve got you covered. Our Invisalign® clear aligners can correct issues too severe for veneers.

4. Misshapen teeth

Veneers address all aspects of your teeth, including the shape of your teeth. If your teeth are misshapen, veneers can restore symmetry to your smile. 

5. Short teeth

Microdontia is a condition in which your teeth are smaller than they should be. In addition to microdontia, your teeth may also appear shorter than normal if they’re worn down.

In addition to correcting the color and shape of your teeth, veneers can correct the size of your teeth. That includes lengthening short or small teeth.

6. Disproportionate smile

What if you have multiple issues you want to correct? Even if some teeth are misshapen and some simply too short, veneers restore balance to your smile.
