Are you dealing with dental issues that make you self-conscious about your smile? At 2K Dental, our team of experts understands how important it is to feel confident when you show off your smile. Fortunately, there are many cosmetic solutions to help you fall in love with your smile again.
Below, we zero in on one treatment available at all four of our locations in Cleveland, Parma, Akron, and Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio: dental veneers. Read on to explore five cosmetic complaints veneers can fix and what that process entails.
Five complaints that veneers can help correct
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that fit perfectly over the front surfaces of your teeth. Because they are 100% customizable, they can address multiple cosmetic concerns, including:
1. Discolored teeth
Over time, your teeth can become discolored due to:
- Drinks, such as coffee, tea, wine, and dark-colored sodas
- Food, such as curry dishes, tomato-based sauces, turmeric, and berries
- Natural aging
- Side effects of certain medications
Veneers can provide a whiter, brighter smile by covering up these stains and giving your teeth a clean, uniform appearance.
2. Chipped or cracked teeth
Accidents happen, and chips or cracks in your teeth can be unsightly and uncomfortable. A sharp edge can even cut your lip or tongue!
Veneers can effectively conceal these imperfections, restoring your teeth to their natural beauty and preventing further damage to your teeth, lips, or tongue.
3. Minor gaps between teeth
Gaps or spaces between your teeth can affect your confidence. Veneers can be customized to fill these gaps, creating an even and harmonious smile without braces or orthodontic treatment.
Even if you have large gaps or bite issues, you’re not out of options. Your 2K Dental provider may recommend Invisalign ® treatment instead. Either way, you’ve got options for addressing those pesky gaps!
4. Misshapen or irregularly sized teeth
Teeth that are misshapen or appear too small can contribute to low self-confidence. Veneers offer a simple solution to reshape and resize your teeth. Most people who receive veneers receive 6-8, so you can correct all the teeth visible when you smile.
Enhancing the size and shape of your teeth provides you with a symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing smile.
5. Worn down teeth
Are your teeth worn down? Veneers can add thickness and strength to these teeth, not only improving their appearance but also enhancing their durability.
