If you have cracked and chipped teeth, or you have gaps in your teeth, there is a very good chance that you are unhappy with your smile. In fact, you might not like to smile at all because of your dental issues. Fortunately, there is help for many people just like you in the form of porcelain veneers. Talk with your dentist in Birmingham to determine if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers.

What Are the Veneers?

They are a relatively simple type of restorative procedure that can help people to deal with many different types of dental issues. They are thin shells that are placed on the outer, or front, part of the teeth. The dentists in Birmingham will design the porcelain veneers specifically for your teeth, and then bond them with your teeth permanently. The dental veneers can help with a wide range of dental issues.

What Dental Problems Could Porcelain Veneers Fix?

You can talk with your cosmetic dentistry specialist about all of the areas that porcelain veneers can help. Some of the most common reasons to have these veneers include the following.

  • Straighten crooked teeth
  • Help to reshape the teeth
  • Close gaps
  • Restore worn teeth
  • Restore chipped teeth

If you have these or similar issues, you might be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. You will want to speak to your cosmetic dentist about the possibility of getting them for your teeth.

As long as you have healthy teeth overall, and a normal bite, you may be a candidate for porcelain veneers. If you have other dental problems, such as decayed teeth, or an improper bite, you need to fix those issues first.
