We can help get your smile back on track by treating chips and cracks on your front teeth. Severe chips and cracks are often due to parafunctional habits (biting on tooth picks, grinding, etc.) and can be effectively treated with a veneer.
Excess Spaces Between Teeth
There are varied causes for spaces between teeth, including a strong frenum attachment, malalignment of teeth, or even a missing tooth. Veneers can be created to close these spaces to create a beautiful and symmetric smile.
Internal Dental Staining
Some patients experience a yellow, grey, or white stain that is incorporated into the tooth structure. This can be caused by maternal use of tetracycline during pregnancy, excess systemic fluoride exposure, traumatic accidents to teeth, discoloration of root canals, and cracks in the teeth which leak food/beverages into the inner surface of the teeth. Veneers can mask intrinsics stain on teeth to restore your confidence when you smile.
Malposition of a Tooth or Teeth
When a tooth is not in an ideal position, a veneer can be placed to create a more aligned and symmetrical smile.
Some patients grind their teeth or have other parafunctional habits such as wear from tobacco use, foreign objects (toothpicks, sunflower seeds), or even sleep apnea. A veneer is a beautiful cosmetic procedure to turn back the hand of time on teeth that appear worn.
Teeth that exhibit microdontia (small teeth) or macrodontia (large teeth) can be treated with dental veneers. Peg laterals (unusually small lateral teeth) are one of the most common forms of microdontia. Any form of imbalance with respect to shape, width, or length can be easily addressed with a dental veneer to create a beautiful and balanced smile.
