Your smile can be the key to feeling confident. If you find yourself insecure about smiling, it could be because you do not feel confident about teeth. Being able to smile confidently without worrying about your the flaws in your teeth is a very freeing feeling. Issues like deep discoloration, asymmetrical shapes or sizes, and irregular spacing can all lead to insecurities. These types of cosmetic issues can be addressed with cosmetic dentistry options like porcelain veneers. When your smile is upgraded to one that you feel confident about, you might feel that confidence spread to the rest of your life.
If you have a large gap, you could consider it an identifying characteristic of your smile. If the gap bothers you or makes you feel self-conscious, it can be closed fully or partially using porcelain veneers. Partially closing a gap could mean keeping that unique aspect, but getting it to a size that makes you feel confident and comfortable. Dental bonding can be a great option for closing smaller gaps or for partially closing a large one.
Some tooth discoloration can be removed through a professional cleaning or a whitening treatment. However, some deep permanent staining cannot be removed with whitening treatments, even professional-grade because the discoloration comes from the inside of the tooth rather than on the outside. Internal discoloration can come from severe tooth trauma, certain medications, or advanced age. Porcelain veneers can cover up deep, intrinsic stains.
Chips, Cracks, Odd Sizes and Shapes
Chips or cracks on the surface of the teeth may only affect the appearance rather the health of the tooth, but they can make a large impact on your smile. You may have a tooth that is naturally a different shape or size than the rest of the smile that may make your smile look incongruent. Porcelain veneers can be applied to a single tooth or multiple teeth to give your smile a uniform look.
