6 Dental Flaws Easily Remedied With Veneers

Even if you’re born with a perfect smile, it can fade over time. But Dr. Michael Kim can help you love your smile again thanks to the magic of veneers.

When it comes to fixing your smile, veneers can work magic. This versatile dental treatment conceals imperfections by attaching thin shells of porcelain or resin composite to the visible area of your tooth. We can apply a veneer to a single tooth to fix one issue or to several teeth to improve your entire smile.

Veneers offer a comfortable fit and natural look because they’re custom-made to match the contour of your teeth. To attach a veneer, we remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel and then bond your porcelain shell in place. This ensures that you don’t have any added bulk on your tooth once it’s in place.

Veneers also come in numerous colors so we can either match a single tooth to the others in your mouth or brighten up your entire smile.

If you’re in Mequon, Wisconsin, or the surrounding area, learn how we use veneers to correct these six dental flaws.

1. Staining and discoloration

One of the easiest ways to enhance your smile is teeth whitening. Unfortunately, this technique doesn’t correct every kind of discoloration. If you have staining on the inside of your tooth, like because of a root canal, a veneer can conceal it by easily covering it up.

2. Gaps

Are you plagued by embarrassing gaps in your teeth? You don’t have to suffer through braces to correct them. When you get veneers, you can hide unwanted spaces in your mouth in one or two office visits.

3. Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped teeth

Even if you have teeth that have a strange or uneven shape, we can easily hide them with veneers to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

4. Chips, breaks, and cracks

A chip, break, or crack can leave your tooth vulnerable to decay. And when it’s one of your front teeth, it can ruin your entire smile. Veneers not only restore your tooth’s appearance, but the strong porcelain or resin composite material offers protection at the same time.

5. Gummy smiles

Do you feel like you have more gum than tooth showing when you smile? Veneers can fix a gummy smile by correcting and lengthening the shape of your teeth to create a more proportioned look.

6. Damaged enamel

The protective coating of enamel on your teeth may be strong, but it’s not indestructible. If your enamel becomes worn down from highly acidic foods or drinks, stomach acid, or overzealous brushing, we can protect your teeth from additional damage with porcelain veneers.
