Maybe you already have a smile that makes you feel confident to show it off. Hopefully, you feel free to smile and laugh without fear of what your smile looks like. But if you do find yourself frequently hiding your smile, covering your mouth when you laugh, or holding back on how often you speak from fear that you will show your teeth, you should consider options of cosmetic dentistry. Smiling can be a great way to build confidence, which means restoring your smile can mean restoring your confidence. If you have thought about how best to achieve the smile of your dreams, it is time to talk to your dentist. Together, the two of you can sort through cosmetic and restorative options that may be best for you. Porcelain veneers can be a great option if you need to address several teeth with several cosmetic issues. 

Addressing Big Gaps

Sometimes a gap between the front teeth can be a thing that makes someone feel special and more confident. But when a gap or large spacing between teeth make you feel insecure, veneers can address these issues. Veneers can even be created to still have a small gap to give you something special, but close the gap enough to make you feel great about the way your smile looks.

Covering Intrinsic Stains

Some tooth discoloration comes from beneath the enamel. When a stain is not on the outer surface, not even professional-grade whitening will be able to remove it. Porcelain veneers can be matched to the desired shade and color of your teeth and applied in front of the stains to cover them. The material of the thin porcelain layers is similar to a the thin layers of natural enamel, which makes for a realistic appearance.

Dealing With Cosmetic Damage

Any damage to your tooth, such as a crack or a chip, can be harmful to your tooth. It is important to check in with your dentist as soon as you can so that you can reduce how long your tooth is left vulnerable. If the damage is only on the surface, a cosmetic treatment like porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding may be able to restore the original appearance.
