Fixing your teeth can help you be more confident, and that confidence can contribute to greater success in life. Explore 6 reasons why porcelain veneers may be the right choice for you.

1. You Dislike Your Smile

Do you feel unsatisfied when you look at your teeth in the mirror? For whatever reason, you simply do not like your smile. You wish it were more like the smiles of people you pass at work, or celebrities you see on TV. Having that straight, white smile is actually possible! You can make it happen for yourself. If you aren’t happy with your smile, you just might be a good candidate for porcelain veneers.

2. Your Teeth are Stained

Perhaps you were a smoker, and your teeth have permanent stains. Maybe your teeth or yellow or stained for some other reason. You feel self-conscious when you speak, smile, or laugh; and perhaps you feel that the stains on your teeth make you seem less educated or less professional than you really are. If you feel that your teeth do not represent you very well, you may be ready for porcelain veneers. Veneers are especially helpful for people who have tried standard teeth whitening products without much success.

3. You Have an Unwanted Gap

Have you always had a gap in your teeth? For some reason, two of your teeth didn’t grow in close enough together, leaving a space. Maybe you have a lisp or a whistle through that gap, and you’d love to close it for good. To deal with this situation, you have the option of tooth bonding or veneers. A small gap can easily be closed by making the veneers for the adjacent teeth a little bit wider to fill up the space.

4. Your Teeth are Broken, Cracked, or Chipped

Did you play rough sports as a child and suffer a chipped tooth or two? Perhaps a bike accident or some other incident left you with broken, cracked, or chipped teeth. It doesn’t have to be a permanent problem! Porcelain veneers can cover all that and make your smile whole and perfect again.

5. Your Teeth Look Worn

If you have suffered from bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching) for years without using a night guard, your teeth may be significantly worn down. Porcelain veneers can bring back the length and the shape of your teeth, and they can give you a better chewing surface as well. Make sure that you get a night guard and use it, to protect your veneers from suffering the same wear and tear as your teeth.

6. Your Teeth are Crooked or Oddly Shaped

Invisalign is a good idea for people with many crooked teeth; but if your teeth are just slightly crooked in appearance, veneers can disguise that fact. Porcelain veneers are also useful for people with asymmetrical or oddly shaped teeth. The veneers cover up the irregularities and make the smile look much more balanced.
