5 Reasons Dental Veneers May Be Right for You

There are certain things we have to live with, but having to display imperfect teeth isn’t one of them. Further, thanks to the numerous dental issues that veneers can fix, they can transform your smile within a few office visits.

At South Bay Prosthodontics in Torrance, California, our team specializes in restorative dental techniques, with veneers among them. What sets veneers apart is their ability to conceal flaws in your teeth with a thin, custom-made porcelain or resin shell. 

These small coverings come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and shades, which creates an incredibly flexible dental solution. Not only can we use a veneer to fix a single tooth, but we can perform an entire smile makeover — and the whole process is completely painless.

If you want to improve your smile, here are five reasons veneers could be the solution you’ve been searching for.

1. Veneers fix staining and discoloration

It’s hard to resist a healthy, white smile. So it’s all the more unfortunate that yellowed or stained teeth is a common dental problem. While not all tooth discoloration responds to professional whitening, veneers can get the job done. Instead of trying to whiten the tooth itself by bleaching,  a veneer works in an instant by covering it up. 

2. Veneers conceal cracks, chips, or breaks

Not only does the damaged tooth ruin your smile, but it also puts your oral health at risk. In many cases, we can use more conservative dental treatments like veneers to cover vulnerable areas. This strategy helps restore the appearance of your tooth while also protecting it from additional damage or decay. 

3. Veneers hide uneven, misshapen, or gapped teeth

If you’re frustrated by uneven, gapped, or misshapen teeth, you don’t have to suffer through the discomfort of teeth straightening with braces or aligners. Instead, we can use custom-made veneers to conceal these gaps or imperfections within a few office visits and create the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

4. Veneers eliminate a ‘gummy’ smile

Veneers can even improve your smile if your teeth aren’t the problem. When you feel as though your mouth is more gums than teeth, we can use veneers to create more length in your teeth. This approach can improve the proportion of your teeth, reducing the appearance of a “gummy” smile.

5. Veneers protect damaged enamel

Your enamel plays an important role by protecting your tooth from damage and decay. But even though it’s incredibly strong, your tooth enamel can still deteriorate, leaving your tooth at risk of disease. Whether you’ve lost your tooth enamel from abrasive brushing, consuming highly acidic foods or beverages, or from stomach acid, veneers can offer your teeth additional protection well into the future.
