How veneers can improve your smile
While you may have heard that veneers can improve your smile, you may not know how they can do that. With veneers, you get many benefits.
1. Closing the gaps
When you see gaps in your smile, you may feel tempted to hide them with closed lips. Veneers can cover those gaps, so you no longer have to worry about covering them or seeing them in photos. You can also avoid getting food stuck in your teeth since it won’t get caught in those spaces anymore.
2. Straighten your smile
Do you have crooked teeth? Veneers can cover mild crookedness without the cost or the wait that comes with getting braces. If you don’t want to get braces in adulthood, veneers offer an instant solution. Dr. Kramer also offers smile makeovers that will make you fall in love with your smile.
3. Restore tooth size
If you grind your teeth, you may have noticed them wearing down over the years. You may also have naturally small or uneven teeth. Regardless of the reason, veneers can make your teeth more proportionate and lengthen them to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.
4. Repair chips and breaks
Broken teeth can lead to cuts, bleeding, sensitivity, and other dental problems. Veneers can help you avoid all of these issues. They also shield chipped teeth from food and drink that can hurt when you have increased sensitivity from breakage.
5. Brighten your teeth
Over time, many people develop stained or yellow teeth. Whether you drink a lot of coffee and tea or you’ve never gotten rid of that stain from your braces, veneers cover any discoloration. They give you the appearance of whiter, brighter teeth so that you can feel confident in your smile.
6. Reduce sensitivity
As they do with broken teeth, veneers provide a covering for any sensitive teeth. If you’ve struggled with hot or cold foods, veneers protect your teeth from the pain that comes with worn enamel. You may even notice that you can eat harder foods, like raw vegetables, after getting veneers.
7. Get rid of ridges
As you get older, your enamel ages, too. Worn enamel can cause ridges in your teeth, which can signal damage or decay. Veneers can even out your teeth and protect them against further damage.
