One option to repair a chipped tooth, or to improve your smile by correcting a cracked or broken tooth is to apply a dental veneer. Dental veneers are also effective for discolored teeth or to change the shape of a tooth. If you have crooked teeth, dental veneers may be a way to fix them as well. Some people who have a gummy smile may benefit from dental veneers as part of a broader cosmetic dentistry plan.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are porcelain covers for the front of your teeth. At White Family Dental, we can apply veneers to improve the appearance of your smile and to fill gaps between teeth.
Why Should I Choose Dental Veneers?
Our approach at White Family Dental is to always answer questions in a manner that is personally appropriate for each patient. And so, the best way to decide if dental veneers are right for you is to schedule an appointment so that we can advise you on all of the options available for your situation. That said, dental veneers may be right for you if you are concerned with:
- Discolored Teeth One discolored tooth from smoking or if you have a few discolored teeth, may not justify a complete teeth whitening process. This is especially true if you have sensitive teeth. By applying a dental veneer, we can match your natural tooth color without the need for teeth whitening.
- Chipped Teeth If you have a single chipped tooth with an otherwise beautiful smile, it may be repaired with a porcelain veneer.
- Cracked Teeth For smiles with a cracked tooth, a dental veneer may be the ideal option. We prepare the face of the tooth by removing some of the surface so that the veneer is even with surrounding teeth and gums. Then we apply the veneer with permanent cement to last for many years. When finished, your otherwise healthy tooth will be restored to its natural appearance.
- Gapped Teeth For some people in Central Pennsylvania, and even for celebrities, a gap in teeth is embraced as part of our personality and individual beauty. For others, gaps between teeth may be a nuisance or a source of embarrassment. Dental veneers can fix gaps in teeth completely. We can also reduce space between teeth to retain a unique smile.
