5 Smile Flaws Easily Corrected with Veneers
Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you. If you don’t feel good about how you look when you smile, it can change how you interact with friends, colleagues, and family members. Veneers can make you want to smile more!

Just as nearly everyone has some detail about their body they’d like to magically change, there’s almost always some improvement they’d like to see in their smile. If you look in the mirror and wish your teeth were straighter, closer together, whiter, or you visualize some other improvement, you may want to investigate porcelain veneers

At L.A. Dentists Group, our staff of highly trained providers can help you get the smile you’ve always wished you had. We see many patients who have beautiful smiles with minor flaws that are easily corrected with veneers. In fact, you may be surprised to learn just how many issues can be corrected with veneers, as well as how durable they are. 

Here, we discuss five of the most common reasons people choose veneers. 

1. Stained teeth

Have you tried professional teeth whitening only to be disappointed in the results? Teeth whitening treatments can work wonders if your teeth are superficially stained. However, if the stains on your teeth penetrate deeper, even professional whitening treatments aren’t likely to help.

Veneers, however, can hide even the worst stains. We custom-tint them, too, so that they look right in your mouth, and match your surrounding teeth. Regardless of how your teeth became stained, veneers can be a good choice to correct the issue. 

2. Oddly shaped teeth

Few people have perfectly-shaped teeth. You probably have one pointy tooth, or one that seems too small compared to the others. Odd or misshapen teeth are common—but you don't have to live with it. 

Our experts make your veneers especially for you. That means we can create a veneer that’s  perfectly sized and shaped. In addition to making your teeth appear even in size and shape, veneers can provide a natural symmetry that is beautiful. 

3. Cracks or breaks

Cracked or broken teeth pose a cosmetic problem, and they can also make you more vulnerable to tooth decay. Veneers can help. Custom-tinted veneers cover cracks, and restore your smile to its unbroken glory. The durable material of the veneer itself and the adhesive used to bond it to your tooth give you confidence that the result will last for years.

4. Gaps

You might be bothered by spaces or gaps between your teeth because of how they look, but they also increase your chance of tooth decay because food can get stuck more easily. Veneers can close those gaps, giving you the beautiful smile you want and a bit of protection against tooth decay. 

5. Crooked teeth

You might think braces or aligners are the only solution for repositioning teeth. Those are excellent options, but if you just need a little bit of cosmetic improvement, veneers may be a better choice. 

Veneers are tooth-shaped shells made of porcelain that are bonded to your natural teeth. When they are shaped and tinted by experts like the dentists at L.A. Dentists Group, your teeth look straighter, even without braces or aligners. Even better, veneers can be completed in a couple of office visits, instead of the months or years you’d need with orthodontic treatments.

Ready to feel good about your smile?

Veneers usually only take one or two visits, but the results are instant and last for many years. Taking care of veneers is easy, too. All you have to do is practice excellent oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and having regular professional checkups.
