When Can You Use Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile. You can use them to address a wide range of issues that detract from your mouth or oral health. 

  • Stained or Discolored Teeth: For stubborn stains that don’t respond to whitening procedures, veneers are an excellent solution. They can provide a consistently white and bright appearance. 
  • Chipped or Cracked Teeth: Veneers can cover and conceal small chips and cracks in your teeth. As a result, it can restore the smooth, intact look of your teeth. 
  • Misshapen or Irregularly Shaped Teeth: If you have misshapen teeth, veneers can create uniformity and harmony in the shape and size of your teeth. 
  • Gaps and Spaces: Veneers can close small gaps and spaces between teeth without the need for orthodontic work.
  • Worn Down Teeth: Aging or teeth grinding can significantly wear down teeth. With veneers, you can restore teeth to their original size and shape. 
  • Sensitivity: While not a direct solution to tooth sensitivity, veneers can sometimes help by providing an additional layer of protection over sensitive teeth. As a result, it can reduce discomfort from hot or cold foods and drinks. 
  • Old Dental Work: Old fillings and dental bonding can diminish the value of your smile. However, veneers can cover discolored, worn, or unattractive dental work. 
  • Smile Makeovers: Transforming your entire mouth with veneers is an option. Veneers can provide a comprehensive cosmetic enhancement for those looking for a complete smile makeover.
