Five Reasons Veneers Might Be Right for You

Dental veneers have been around for a long time — in their modern form since about the 1960s. However, the materials and technology used to make them and place them on your teeth have drastically improved in the last few years.

Porcelain or composite resin veneers are very thin shells that are attached to the fronts of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are less likely to stain and reflect light more like the surface of real teeth. Composite resin veneers often offer a cost savings but should last a lifetime with proper care and routine maintenance.

If you’re thinking about getting veneers, here are five reasons it could be the right choice.

Your teeth are stained or discolored

If you’ve tried whitening products but not gotten the results you’d hoped for, you might be a good candidate for veneers. Veneers cover stains, giving you a sparkly, fresh smile.

You should be aware that veneers can become stained though, and take steps to keep your smile bright. Excellent dental hygiene, not smoking, and avoiding certain foods and drinks should ensure your new smile stays beautiful for years to come.

You have broken, chipped, or cracked teeth

Depending on your individual situation, Dr. Morgan may suggest veneers to cover a broken, chipped, or cracked tooth. Veneers can restore the overall appearance of your teeth.

If you’ve lived with a chipped, broken, or cracked tooth for years, or if you’ve only recently endured the injury, schedule a consultation with Dr. Morgan to find out if veneers might be right for you. You may end up with a more beautiful smile than before your tooth was damaged.

You have a gap between your teeth

Braces or aligners are not the only way to correct a gap between your teeth. Veneers could be the better option for you. If you’ve always been bothered by a space between your teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Morgan to find out if veneers could be the most appropriate way to address it.

Your teeth are worn

Every day you use your teeth to chomp, bite, and grind your food. You may even grind them against each other sometimes. Over time, normal use leads to wear and tear on your teeth and they can begin to look worn down.

Veneers can restore the appearance of your teeth, making them look more youthful. Book a consultation with Dr. Morgan to find out if veneers could be the best way to restore your worn teeth.

Your teeth just don’t look quite right

Whether your teeth are misaligned, shaped oddly, or there’s some other problem that affects the appearance of your smile, veneers may be the best way to improve your look. Dr. Morgan is an expert in using veneers to shape each tooth to create your best smile.
