Have You Considered These Benefits of Veneers?

A woman's smile

When you smile in the mirror, do you frown at how your teeth look? With advances in cosmetic dentistry, there are numerous ways you can improve the look of your teeth.

At PK Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Sterling, Virginia, we offer many advanced cosmetic treatments, including veneers. These thin, porcelain shells can fix many smile flaws on your front teeth and give you a smile you’d be happy to see in the mirror.

1. Brighten your smile

Our expert team of dentists here at PK Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, understands better than anyone how stained teeth can make you want to hide your smile. While teeth whitening can work for many stains, if your discoloration is due to a medication or an injury that darkened your dentin, teeth whitening may not work.

But with veneers, our providers can fix the discoloration by covering up your stained teeth with the porcelain shells to give you a radiant smile. And unlike the enamel on your teeth, veneers are nearly stain resistant, and with good care, they should stay white and bright for many years.

2. Fix broken or chipped teeth

Your teeth are some of the strongest bones in your body, but they’re still vulnerable to cracks and chips. You may find yourself hiding from everyone if an accidental fall causes a crack or break in one of your front teeth. But our team can easily fix your damaged tooth by bonding it to a veneer. Doing this will not only hide the crack, but it will also reinforce your damaged tooth.

3. Improve symmetry

Do you feel as though your front teeth are too small and don’t match the shape of your face? Is there one tooth that just doesn’t seem to fit with the rest? An asymmetrical smile, whether it’s from one tooth or your entire set, may make you want to hide your smile. Veneers can fix your misaligned tooth or change the shape of all your front teeth, so your smile matches your face.

4. Close gaps

Invisalign isn’t your only option when it comes to fixing gaps in your teeth. If you’re looking for a faster solution to close gaps, veneers may be the way to go. We can create a set of veneers to cover up gaps in your teeth and give you a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

5. Restore strength

The enamel on your teeth serves as a source of strength and protection. Unfortunately, your enamel isn’t indestructible, and it can wear away from overzealous brushing or from consuming too many acidic foods. Without strong enamel, your teeth may be more susceptible to cavities. Veneers can serve as replacement enamel and protect your teeth from damage and decay.

When it comes to transforming your smile, we offer a full menu of options. If you’re looking to brighten your teeth, repair cracks, or simply get a more aesthetically pleasing smile, you may want to consider veneers.
