Do you hide your smile with your hand? Have you taken to mumbling because you do not want others to see your yellow or crooked teeth? You can have the beautiful white teeth of your dreams with porcelain veneers. Dr. Douglas Genninger, a cosmetic dentist in Carrollowood, FL, offers a range of dentistry options to give you a smile worth celebrating.
Porcelain veneers are essentially shells or covers for your teeth. Dr. Genninger ensures a good fit by customizing veneers to fit your unique set of teeth and bonding them into place on the front side of your teeth. They offer a variety of benefits, including covering stains and chips and filling gaps.
- Covering Stains
The pearly whites we started out with naturally become discolored as we age. Certain foods, drinks and smoking can add to the problem, making teeth look old and detracting from your appearance. Porcelain veneers not only cover stains but also provide a barrier to further discoloring.
- Hiding Chips and Cracks
Cavities, accidents and regular chewing of hard substances, such as ice or hard candy, can all create and add to chips and cracks in your teeth. A cosmetic dentist can apply veneers to hide these imperfections and protect your teeth from further damage.
- Straightening Your Smile
Crooked or misaligned teeth do not always require braces. You may be able to create the same effect of straight teeth in a few hours using veneers, versus a years-long correction using braces.
- Filling Gaps
Some patients may inherit a genetic trait that leaves large gaps between individual teeth. Veneers can help reduce the size of the gaps and give you a filled-in smile.
You may have considered bleaching options, only to find they are ineffective at whitening metal fillings, or your stains are too deep to lighten beyond a certain point.
