Imperfections in your teeth don't have to keep you from having a perfect smile. Dr. Robert Dame of North Park Family Dental in Grand veneersRapids, MI, explains how veneers can help you.

What are veneers?

Slipcovers offer a simple way to hide stains or wear in furniture. Veneers use the same principle to conceal minor dental flaws. The thin shells are placed on the front surfaces of the teeth to conceal obvious imperfections. Made of porcelain, a tough substance that resembles tooth enamel, veneers are durable and resistant to staining.

Can I benefit from veneers?

Veneers, a very versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment, are a good choice for many people. When you visit Dr. Dame's Grand Rapids office, he'll perform an exam to make sure that they're the best option for your situation. Veneers are often used to address these issues:

  • Changes in Color: A discolored tooth is very noticeable when you smile. Whether the problem is caused by trauma, a large filling, antibiotic side effects or another reason, restoring the natural appearance of the tooth is easy, thanks to veneers.
  • A Dull Smile: Have you ever noticed that no one on TV has a yellow or dull smile? Dental veneers aren't just ideal for hiding a single discolored tooth, but can also be used to whiten your entire smile. Because veneers are available in multiple shades, it's possible to pick the exact level of whiteness you want.
  • Pits and Chips: Veneers are a good solution if you're concerned about a small flaw, such as chips, pits on the surface of your teeth or small surface cracks.
  • Unusual-Looking Teeth: It's not unusual to have one or two teeth that don't look like the rest. Although you may need braces if your teeth are extremely crooked, a slightly crooked tooth can be completely transformed with the application of a veneer. Veneers can disguise a number or irregularities, including teeth that are twisted, short or pointed.
  • Gaps: Do you have spacing issues? Veneers get rid of slight gaps between your teeth that make you avoid smiling.
