There are a lot of situations where you can use veneers. However, before proceeding with the process, your doctor will assess first whether they are the best solution for you. Your dentist will also discuss with you the method after he has examined your teeth and consulting about your preferences and your budget.
They may be useful in the following situations.
Discolored – Teeth discoloration is a common problem nowadays. They can become discolored because of various reasons which include neglect of oral health, gastric reflux, root canal treatment, large resin fillings, use of drugs like tetracycline and more. It may seem surprising, but excessive fluoride can also cause discoloration to occur. Tobacco and alcohol may also have this effect.
Worn Down – Teeth may get gradually worn down over a period of time. The most common reason for this is the neglect of oral hygiene, but other factors may contribute to this situation. Disease, like diabetes, deficiency of fluoride, and genetics may be responsible.
Chipped or Cracked – Chipped or cracked teeth can be easily repaired to restore their looks.
You have Gaps – If you have gaps in your teeth that you want to do away with, then these might be the right choice to make – regardless of how small or large, the gap may be.
Irregularly Shaped or Aligned – Not all people are born with a perfect set of teeth. Some may have naturally misaligned or crooked smile, or with unequal width or height. Surfaces may have depressions or bulges on the front. In all of these situations, they can be used to cover the problem after proper trimming.
Your Teeth have Open Spaces – Whether a gap between an individual tooth and another, whether too large or too small, can be amended with proper trimming followed by application.
