How Veneers Address Smile Asymmetry

Asymmetry can be due to the way your smile is aligned, or due to the condition, shape, or size of one or more of your teeth. Even if the problem is subtle, that lack of symmetry can be an unwelcome distraction, one that you are eager to address. At our Katy, TX dentist’s office, we can provide effective solution for this and other esthetic concerns with porcelain veneers. This is a cosmetic treatment that relies on custom-made restorations that only modify the front surfaces of teeth. When in place, they are capable of hiding discoloration, damage, and even naturally occurring issues with tooth shape and size.

Specific Smile Flaws Can Create Larger Problems For Your Appearance

A flaw that affects your smile can draw unwelcome attention on its own, but it can become a part of a larger concern that makes you self-conscious about the way you look. When you have issues with teeth that are chipped or cracked, appear to be the wrong shape or size for your smile, or stand out because of their alignment, they can create an overall asymmetry in your appearance that you would like to hide. Because symmetry is an important quality when it comes to our appearance, it can be difficult to maintain confidence in how you look if your problem goes untreated.

Using Veneers To Make Your Appearance More Symmetrical

With custom porcelain veneers, we can make careful changes to the way you look while only making conservative changes to your tooth structure. Unlike dental crowns, which have to completely cover teeth, veneers only need to cover their front surfaces. We take care to closely measure teeth you are restoring so that the veneers you receive provide the right cosmetic changes. In the course of two visits, we can plan your procedure, prepare you for placement, and put them in position and give you renewed confidence in the way you look!

Other Beneficial Changes Cosmetic Dentistry Can Make

There are many improvements that we can make through the placement of porcelain veneers. For example, cosmetic dental procedure can actually help when you have issues with discoloration that are caused by something other than enamel stains. Their coverage can hide internal blemishes that stem from a reaction to certain medications, from injury, or from the gradual erosion of your enamel.
