8 Problems That Veneers Correct

Even though veneers were first created for actors, you don’t need to be a red carpet star to benefit from these thin porcelain shells. Veneers are well known for creating those dazzling A-list smiles ㅡ and they’re available here at Palmieri Dentistry in Mooresville, North Carolina. 

Below, Dr. Roberto Palmieri, accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, discusses eight problems that veneers can correct. 

1. Discolored teeth

More than half of the population isn’t satisfied with the color of their teeth. Some stains are easily lifted with professional whitening treatments, but some stains — especially ones caused by the side effects of medication — don’t respond to whitening treatments.

Veneers can correct even the most stubborn stains. That’s because veneers are custom-made. Dr. Palmieri selects the right shade for your veneers to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

2. Gaps between teeth

If you have small gaps between your teeth, veneers can mask those gaps by slightly widening the teeth on the side of the gap. This is ideal if you have a minor gap and don’t want orthodontic treatment. 

3. Broken or chipped teeth

Veneers can enhance a tooth that’s been broken or chipped. If you chip a tooth, especially if it’s a front tooth, veneers not only hide the chip but help to strengthen the tooth as well. 

4. Misshapen teeth

One of the biggest advantages of veneers over teeth whitening is that in addition to brightening your smile, veneers have the ability to change the shape of your teeth.

5. Asymmetrical smiles

Teeth grinding, chips, and receding gumlines can make your smile appear asymmetrical. Veneers can restore symmetry to your smile.

6. Small teeth

Did you know veneers can correct small teeth? For example, if you’re unhappy with small lateral incisors — the teeth adjacent to your front two teeth — veneers can make them appear more natural in shape and size, creating a beautifully proportioned smile.

7. Short teeth

In addition to making small teeth seem bigger, veneers can also lengthen teeth that are too short. This is done by crafting the veneers so that they’re slightly longer than your natural teeth.

8. Mild crowding

While veneers don’t actually straighten or shift your teeth in any way, veneers can re-create the appearance of straighter teeth. By covering the buccal (facing your lip) surface of your teeth, veneers mask the appearance of mild crowding. 

Note: Because veneers only hide mild crowding, veneers might not be right for you if you have severely crooked or rotated teeth. In these cases, we may suggest Invisalign® treatments to help you better reach your goals.
