Are you self-conscious about some aspect of your smile? When it comes to improving the appearance of your teeth, porcelain veneers can address a variety of different aesthetic flaws simultaneously. This is just one of the reasons why veneers are one of the most popular treatments used by your cosmetic dentist in Greeneville. Keep reading as, today on the blog, we explore five ways that veneers can improve the look of your smile.

How do veneers work?

A veneer is a thin shell that attaches to the front of the tooth or teeth that are being treated. Tusculum Dental Care offers veneers that are made of dental porcelain – a beautiful and durable material that resists surface stains and has a translucency similar to natural tooth enamel. We also can adjust the veneers to any desired shade. The cosmetic dentists in Greeneville can install veneers on a single tooth or all the visible tooth surfaces in the mouth.

5 Ways veneers can improve your smile

  1. Gaps, uneven or misaligned teeth

Do you have teeth that are different sizes? Are your teeth mildly crooked? Do you have a visible gap between two of your teeth? Veneers can provide a solution to any, or all, of these issues. Veneers can make all your teeth appear the same size or conceal an unwanted gap. Veneers also can correct the appearance of mildly crooked teeth, a technique known as “instant orthodontics.”

  1. Discoloration

If you seek out veneers in Jonesborough, your cosmetic dentist can adjust the shade of your veneers to any that you desire. Veneers also offer a virtually permanent alternative to dental whitening treatments; when placed on all the visible tooth surfaces in your mouth, veneers brighten your smile without the repeat treatments needed for whitening procedures. The end result is a uniformly radiant smile.

  1. Damaged enamel

Your tooth enamel can wear away naturally as you age. Enamel loss also may occur due to injury, brushing too aggressively or erosion due to too much acid in the mouth from the foods and drinks you consume. Veneers, once in place, can protect against the deterioration of enamel.

  1. Chips, cracks or breaks

Having a tooth that is chipped, cracked or fractured can make you extremely self-conscious about your smile. A tooth with damage of this type also can be more susceptible to additional decay or structural damage. Veneers repair the damage and restore your damaged teeth, sometimes to a state better than they originally were.

  1. A gummy smile

Sometimes there is too much gum tissue, which covers more of the tooth structure than desired, resulting in a gummy smile. Veneers can lengthen the appearance of your teeth, giving you a more balanced smile.
