9 Ways Veneers Can Help Give You a Celebrity-Worthy Smile

A healthy, appealing smile imparts confidence and engenders goodwill from others. If you refrain from flashing your pearly whites, Dr. Shirley Zhao and her team make at Zhao Dental, with offices in offices in Pleasanton and Tracy, California, can help. They have fixed countless smile issues with safe, and easy veneers. Here are 9 of the most common oral issues we correct with veneers.

#1 Crooked teeth

If you have crooked teeth, you’ve likely considered or even explored the idea of orthodontic treatment, which is a fit for many patients, but a long and slow process that some patients choose to bypass. If orthodontic treatment isn’t for you, porcelain veneers can be created to your preferences and placed on top of your natural teeth to correct crooked teeth.

#2 Gaps

Although many people take pride in the uniqueness and personality that gaps can add to a smile, some people feel self-conscious about spaces between their teeth. If this is you, veneers can easily close up gaps, creating a smile that looks exactly the way you want it to.

#3 Short teeth

If you have a few teeth that are shorter than others, making your smile uneven or disproportionate, veneers can be placed on shorter teeth to lengthen them to match the others. If all of your teeth are shorter than you’d like or you’re hoping to correct other problems such as discoloration at the same time, veneers can be placed on several adjacent teeth to create the perfect smile you’re envisioning.

#4 Chipped or cracked teeth

Sometimes, chips and cracks pose no risk to the integrity of your teeth but create smile flaws that you don’t like. When this is the case, thin porcelain veneers can be fabricated to perfectly match the rest of your teeth and then cemented to your natural teeth to cover up imperfections and give you back your confidence.

#5 Overcrowded teeth

Overcrowding can take months or years to fix through orthodontic treatment, but veneers can fix minor overcrowding in a single procedure. By crafting your veneers exactly the way you want them to look and then affixing them to your teeth, Dr. Herrick can transform an overcrowded smile into a celebrity smile almost overnight.
