Your smile is one of your most important features. Unfortunately, if your teeth are damaged, discolored or unattractive, you may not want toveneers share your smile with the world. Our Trinity and New Port Richey, FL, dentist, Dr. James Lewis, explains how veneers can change the appearance of your teeth.

Veneers offer smile-changing possibilities

Small flaws in your smile can be easily concealed with the addition of porcelain veneers. The thin, tooth-shaped shells are cemented on to the fronts of your teeth, providing excellent coverage for minor damage and imperfections. Veneers are an excellent cosmetic option if your teeth are healthy and in good condition.

How veneers can transform your smile

Veneers cover up the things you don't like about your smile. They make minor imperfections that are extremely noticeable disappear, such as cracks, chips, and uneven surfaces. Even gaps between teeth can be treated with veneers. Adding a few veneers to your teeth closes up slight spaces between teeth, improving your smile.

Veneers are very popular with people who have discolored teeth. Teeth tend to change color if you've experienced some sort of trauma, such as a blow to your mouth, or if you took the antibiotic tetracycline as a child. Some dental treatments, including root canals and large fillings, can also cause teeth to darken. Adding a veneer to a discolored tooth instantly lightens and brightens it.

When your teeth vary widely in shape or size, veneers can be a good solution. They increase uniformity and are an excellent solution if a few teeth have become shorter due to grinding. If you're a grinder, you'll want to start wearing a nightguard when you receive your veneers. The nightguard, which is constructed from an impression taken in our Trinity and New Port Richey area office, prevents damage to your veneers and teeth due to grinding or clenching.

If you're unhappy with the results of teeth whitening or don't want to whiten your teeth every few years, veneers may be a better option. Veneers are available in a vast array of shades of white, making it possible to choose the ideal shade for your smile. Using lighter or darker dental cement will also help you achieve the level of whiteness you prefer.
