Find out how many different smile issues porcelain veneers can improve.

We all want a perfect smile, but sometimes that isn’t always possible. Sometimes crunching down on hard foods can leave us with small veneerschips or cracks in our teeth. Sometimes taking antibiotics or other medications leave us with discolorations that teeth whitening can’t treat. If you are less-than-satisfied with your smile, it’s time to talk to our Sebastian, FL dentist, Dr. Mark Peterson, about what dental veneers could do for you.

Dental veneers are thin, translucent shells of porcelain that are designed to fit over the front of your tooth to improve the color, shape, length or size of a tooth or teeth. Veneers are only applied to teeth in the aesthetic zone, or teeth that are visible when you smile.

What makes veneers such a great cosmetic option for many people in Sebastian is that they can be used to address many dental defects such as:

  • Chips, cracks or broken teeth
  • Misshapen, malformed, worn or uneven teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Minor crowding or overlapping

As you can see, veneers can really be versatile when it comes to what issues they can address. Veneers can make your smile look brighter, more uniformed and even straighter. This is a great option for people looking to get a brighter smile but for whom teeth whitening won’t work. Unfortunately, internal stains won’t respond to teeth whitening but they can easily be hidden with dental veneers.

Dental veneers can also cover teeth that are overlapping, teeth that are a touch crooked and spacing issues to achieve a straighter smile. Most of the time people assume that the only way to straighter teeth is through orthodontics. However, this isn’t always the case. Sometimes getting porcelain veneers is all it takes to get the straighter, more even smile you want.
