Indication for Teeth Veneers
Changing the size and shape of teeth:
If your teeth are too small, or have an imbalanced form, veneers can correct size discrepancy and asymmetry
Teeth can be discolored for many reasons. Some are external factors such as brown yellow staining from food and tobacco. Some staining is internal such as tetracycline staining. Fluoridation spots initially present as white but are prone to become darkened by food and beverages.
Spacing Between Teeth:
Clinically referred to as ‘diastema’, referring to an excessive space between teeth. This can be cute on kids but many adults feel self conscious of the gap. Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice to treat this condition.
Large Cavities on the Anterior Teeth:
Front teeth with fillings are usually treated with a tooth colored composite. Eventually this material can dull or discolor with food stain. Larger fillings may be best treated by veneer.
Loss of tooth structure due to sport injury, accidents and excessive wear can be treated with veneers to visually restore the damaged areas.
Veneers can create an overall smile makeover. For changes to the size, shape, and the color of your teeth, or for replacing previous dental work that is beginning to show its age, veneers are a conservative and highly effective option.
