How Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Most people list picture-perfect smiles as a top aesthetic goal, but few people are actually born with red carpet-ready smiles. Cosmetic dentistry can enhance the appearance of your teeth by addressing minor imperfections like stains or misshapen teeth. Here at SPA Dental Group, our experienced team of providers offers a variety of services — including veneers — to help you love your smile again.

Veneers are a simple, minimally invasive technique designed to improve your smile — and they’re available in our New York City and Washington, D.C. offices. Continue reading to learn how veneers can turn a dull smile into a dazzling one.

1. Veneers can close gaps without orthodontic gear

Although Invisalign can straighten crooked teeth and address bite issues, you don’t necessarily need orthodontic treatment if you have minor gaps between your teeth. Veneers can fill in small gaps and even hide minor imperfections. 

Note: Veneers work best on minor gaps. If you have large gaps, or the integrity of your bite is compromised, we may recommend orthodontic treatment. We have a certified Invisalign provider at both of our locations.

2. Veneers brighten your smile

Professional teeth whitening can provide long-lasting results, but it’s not right for everyone. If you have deep stains (e.g., stains caused by medication), teeth whitening products might not be strong enough to address intrinsic stains. You’re not out of options, though.

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the front of your natural teeth. Because we select the shade of your veneers, we ensure your teeth are bright and complement your overall complexion.  

3. Veneers hide chips in your teeth

Veneers can replace one tooth or multiple teeth, and if your tooth is chipped or cracked, a veneer can protect it. Not only does the veneer improve the appearance of your chipped tooth, but it also strengthens it. Veneers are strong and durable; they are firmly attached to your tooth with special dental cement and a light that cures (hardens) the cement. This serves as an extra layer of protection for your cracked or chipped tooth. 

Note: severely damaged teeth may benefit from a crown or an implant instead, but rest assured that we’ll guide you with the right treatment for your specific chips. 

4. Veneers eliminate a gummy smile

Does a gummy smile make you feel self-conscious? Because veneers are customized to fit your mouth, we can design your set of veneers to create a more balanced smile — so you show more teeth and less gum.  

5. Veneers can change the shape of your teeth

Veneers not only address the color of your teeth, but they can change the shape and size of your teeth. Every aspect of your veneers is custom-designed for you. If your teeth are misshapen or too small, veneers can restore balance and symmetry to your smile.

Feel confident with veneers

Veneers help you reach your cosmetic goals with a flawless, yet still natural-looking smile. When you love your smile, it shows! And with the proper care, your new veneers can last for up to 10 years.
