5 Smile Imperfections That Dental Veneers Can Address

Cosmetic Dentistry 1 | Lexington, KY - Beaumont Family Dentistry

The holidays are right around the corner, and you know what that means: memories will be made with your family and friends, and they’ll all be captured in photographs.

But when you have broken, misshapen, or discolored teeth, the possibility of a photograph capturing the imperfections in your smile can fill you with dread.

This holiday season, consider giving yourself the gift of a picture-perfect smile with the help of dental veneers!

Dental veneers are thin but tough shells that, once bonded to your teeth, conceal imperfections for a flawless smile. People love dental veneers for the quick and dramatic transformation they offer.

At Beaumont Family Dentistry, we’re proud to offer different kinds of dental veneers. You’re sure to find one that fits your lifestyle and your needs! Those include:

  • E.max veneers. These are made from a specially treated ceramic, so they’re thinner than traditional dental veneers but are still extremely durable.
  • Empress veneers. These have been described as the “ultimate benchmark” for porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and can last for 20 years!
  • Lumineers. These ultra-thin dental veneers require minimal preparation of your teeth before placement.

And, it’s not too late to start the process to get your perfect smile by the holidays! Continue reading to learn about five flaws dental veneers can fix. Then, if you’re looking for top-notch cosmetic dentistry in Lexington, KY, call Beaumont Family Dentistry for a free consultation!

We have three convenient locations:

1.  Discolored Teeth

Years of consuming coffee, tea, and carbonated beverages can stain the outer layer of your teeth. But did you know that it’s possible for discoloration to occur from the inside of the tooth as well?

Injury and certain medications can actually cause your teeth to darken from the inside. While over-the-counter and professional bleaching treatments can remove extrinsic stains, they’re not effective at correcting this kind of intrinsic discoloration.

The good news, however, is that dental veneers can help you brighten your smile, regardless of whether your dental discoloration comes from the surface or inside of your teeth!

2. Broken Or Chipped Teeth

Whether you accidentally bit down awkwardly on a piece of hard candy or you sustained a dental injury while on a weekend bike ride, broken or chipped teeth happen to the best of us.

For minor chips and cracks, we may be able to repair the damage with a process called tooth bonding. But dental veneers are often a better choice for concealing more serious damage or addressing multiple dental woes with a single procedure.

Plus, dental veneers offer a more durable and lasting fix than tooth bonding! There’s a reason many Hollywood celebrities love dental veneers.

In addition to their cosmetic benefits, dental veneers can strengthen the tooth and help prevent future damage.

3. Misshapen Or Crooked Teeth

Dental Veneers are sometimes described as “instant orthodontics.” That’s because dental veneers create a consistent look to your teeth, which makes them appear straighter without the need for braces or aligners!

Plus, the process of creating and placing dental veneers only takes weeks, as opposed to the years that orthodontics treatments often require.

When you come to Beaumont Family Dentistry for dental veneers, getting a flawless smile can be accomplished in as few as two visits, depending on the type of dental veneers you choose.

4. Worn Down Teeth

Have years of grinding or clenching your teeth resulted in your smile looking worn or misshapen? Well, dental veneers can help restore a healthy appearance to your teeth!

Plus, we also offer solutions for teeth grinding or clenching of the jaw. At Beaumont Family Dentistry, you can both repair damage caused by teeth grinding and address the root issue to prevent further damage!

5. Unsightly Fillings

Don’t let a stained, washed-out or just plain ugly filling distract from your smile. Conceal it with a dental veneer!

After your veneers are placed, you can trust Beaumont Family Dentistry for high-quality comprehensive dental care — including tooth-colored composite fillings that are incredibly durable and discreet. Say goodbye to silver fillings!
