Veneers Can Improve the Look of Your Teeth
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over your teeth. The porcelain is strong, but not as strong as your actual tooth enamel. Veneers can be used to cover teeth that have been cracked or chipped. Perhaps your teeth have gotten cracked or chipped over time. It is also possible that your teeth have experienced sudden trauma, such as a car accident, that have cracked or chipped teeth all at once.
Veneers can also be used to cover teeth that have become discolored. Discolored teeth can happen through staining over time, such as through the use of caffeine or tobacco products. Teeth can also become discolored through medication use, such as chemotherapy medications.
Veneers are also used to correct earlier dental procedures, or crooked and misshapen teeth. Sometimes, when adults do not want to get braces to repair teeth over time, they choose veneers, especially when they suffer from misshapen teeth. For example, many people are born with teeth of different sizes or lengths that make their smile look uneven. Veneers give a uniform look to your teeth, and are great for correcting the teeth you were born with, but aren't happy with.
