Dental issues don't have to be major to affect your smile. Even the smallest imperfections can make you feel self-conscious every time you open your mouth. Luckily, veneers offer a simple way to transform your smile. St. Louis, MO, dentists Drs. Joseph and Nina Zeigler discuss the benefits of veneers.
How can veneers help my smile?
Veneers are very effective in concealing imperfections that only affect the fronts of your teeth. They're constructed of a thin layer of porcelain and applied to your teeth with dental cement. Because porcelain veneers are opaque, they do an excellent job of keeping flaws hidden from view. The restorations are created from a mold of your mouth, which ensures that they fit your teeth perfectly and look completely natural.
Do you have small chips in your tooth enamel? Chipped areas can be distracting when you smile and may cut your lips or tongue if they're rough. Veneers are often used to hide chips and other dental flaws, like cracks or bumpy or uneven tooth surfaces.
Veneers are also a good choice if one of your teeth has changed color. The problem can occur if you took tetracycline to treat a bacterial infection when you were a child, have a large filling or had an infection that darkened your tooth. Because veneers are available in a range of colors, it's simple to match your veneer to the color of your other teeth when you visit our St. Louis office.
If you're tired of whitening your teeth or aren't happy with the results of whitening, veneers offer another whitening option. When they're applied to all of your teeth, they offer an instant and dramatic transformation. You can even choose the optimum shade for your new smile.
Gaps between teeth are particularly noticeable, even if they're small. Adding veneers to your teeth completely eliminates the spaces. Although you may need orthodontic treatment if the gaps are severe, veneers offer a simple solution to a common cosmetic dental issue.
