When you see pictures of yourself or when you look in the mirror, does the sight of your smile make you feel unhappy? Whether you hide your smile every given chance or you wish you could change a few things about it, porcelain veneers might be the solution for you. At SoBe Dentist, we understand how important it is to feel confident in your smile. That’s why we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry solutions that can help. One of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we recommend to most patients seeking aesthetic improvements is porcelain veneers. Discover the 8 dental problems porcelain veneers can address with our help.

1. Stains and Discoloration

One of the top problems porcelain veneers can help address is stains and discoloration. Stains and discoloration can happen naturally due to eating and drinking foods and drinks that stain and from poor oral hygiene. As plaque and tartar build-up, it can make your teeth appear yellow and stained.

Fortunately, our cosmetic dentists at SoBe Dentist can help your teeth get back to complete health and hide years of staining and discoloration. Porcelain veneers are the best solution for maintaining a white smile because the results are long-lasting and the veneers themselves do not stain. This means that you will never have to worry about whitening your teeth any longer. Instead, you can enjoy a beautiful white smile all the time!

2. Chips and Cracks

Whether you took a bad fall or you bit into something you shouldn’t, chips and cracks can have a huge impact on your overall smile appearance. You might also find it annoying to have your bonding replaced every couple of years too. This is where porcelain veneers can help. Porcelain veneers cover the entire front of your teeth and in the process, they can mask any underlying damage problems. This means they are excellent for covering chips or cracks on your teeth.

3. Worn Teeth

Bite misalignments and clenching and/or grinding can result in prematurely worn teeth. As your teeth wear down, they will lose tooth structure and begin to look short. Worn teeth can also cause your facial structure to lose some of its height, which can contribute to premature aging. By rebuilding your worn tooth structure with porcelain veneers, your teeth will look young and healthy again. Veneers may be included as a TMJ treatment plan. It’s our goal to ensure your bite rests comfortably so it doesn’t become strained. As a bonus, it will help maintain your youthful appearance.

4. Gapped Teeth

No longer do you need a lengthy orthodontic treatment to get rid of gapped teeth. In just two appointments, you can say goodbye to your gaps for good with help from porcelain veneers. Our Miami Beach dentists can cover the gaps between your teeth by shaping the porcelain veneers in a specific way. Your smile will look completely natural and you won’t have to patiently wait for orthodontic treatment to take effect.

5. Minor Crookedness

Here is another win for patients who want to avoid orthodontics. We can also cover up minor crookedness with porcelain veneers. Instead of waiting for a tooth to straighten with braces, we can shape a veneer to cover the crookedness and make your tooth appear to look straight. We only recommend veneers for the most minor amount of crookedness and for patients who don’t have any bite issues. In some cases, however, we will recommend Invisalign or another orthodontic treatment.

6. Mishapped Teeth

Do your teeth all have a different shape? One of the factors that can make a smile look attractive or not is how symmetrical it is. Therefore, if you have teeth that are all different shapes and sizes, it can affect your overall smile appearance. With porcelain veneers, we can help your teeth complement each other in size and shape to improve the overall appearance.

7. Gummy Smile

When you smile, do you see more gum tissue than you would like? This might mean that you have a gummy smile. A gummy smile is usually the result of excess gum tissue or short teeth. By removing excess gum tissue and/or lengthening the crowns with porcelain veneers, it can get rid of your gummy smile.

8. Worn Enamel

The last dental problem porcelain veneers can address is a worn enamel. If you have a worn enamel, you likely experience more tooth sensitivity with temperature changes. You are also more prone to cavities. By getting porcelain veneers, not only will it enhance your smile, but will also protect your teeth.
