5 Things Veneers Can Do for Your Smile


Tooth discoloration is one of the most common concerns people have about their smiles. With constant exposure to staining foods and drinks like chocolate, berries, coffee, tea, and wine, the natural discoloration that goes along with aging has been accelerated dramatically.

Normally, teeth whitening works well for stained teeth, but if a person wants to correct more than just the color of their teeth, veneers might be a better choice. Plus, veneers aren’t limited by your natural tooth color. Some people have tooth enamel that isn’t as white or as thick, which means that their teeth will never be as white as other people’s. But with veneers, your teeth can be as white as you want.

Close Gaps

People are divided when it comes to a gap in your smile (technically known as a diastema). Some people think it makes a smile cute and unique. And there are increasing numbers of celebrities who rock the look on runway and screen. But if you’re unhappy with the look, you might want to find a way to close the gap. Traditionally, this was done with orthodontics, but today porcelain veneers can be used to close the gap.

And here’s another benefit, while orthodontics takes months, even years to achieve this: veneers can do it in under a month.


And while we’re on the subject of orthodontics, here’s another way that veneers can replace orthodontics: straightening your teeth.

Instead of moving and rotating teeth, we can use veneers to reshape your teeth so that they are straight. And while more complicated tooth movements make orthodontics take longer, veneers take the same amount of time. Enjoy straight teeth in under a month! No wonder they are sometimes known as instant orthodontics!


Minor chips and wear can make you unhappy about the appearance of your smile. But you don’t have to live with them.

Porcelain veneers can repair all the minor damage to your teeth. If your teeth are chipped or worn, then veneers can restore them to their original appearance. And here’s the beauty: even if you just have one chipped tooth, a single veneer can be blended perfectly with your other teeth so no one will ever know!

However, sometimes damage to teeth might be too severe for veneers to repair. In that situation, we’ll recommend dental crowns–they can be equally cosmetic, but provide more protection and support for badly damaged teeth.


What if your teeth aren’t damaged, but you’re unhappy with the natural shape of your teeth? Perhaps you have an irregularly shaped tooth like a peg lateral, or maybe you have retained baby teeth, or just naturally small teeth. Maybe your teeth aren’t square enough or just don’t give the right impression when you smile.

Veneers can help in this situation, too. You can change the size and shape of your teeth to achieve the look you want. And, like other uses, you can decide whether you want to reshape all your teeth or just address a couple teeth that you don’t like.
