If you could fix one thing about your smile, would it be the gap between your two front teeth? If so, you are not alone. A gap is a common problem with many smiles. Most front teeth gaps are caused when there is a difference in the size of your jaw and the size of your teeth. Orthodontics as a child or teenager usually corrects your alignment and can shift the front teeth together. However, if you did not get braces and you regret your gapped smile, you still have an easy solution with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers can give you the beautiful and natural looking smile you have always wanted. Not only can they fill your gap, but this cosmetic dentistry procedure can fix a number of dental dilemmas such as badly stained teeth or misshaped teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin covers that fit on or over the front of your teeth. Your existing tooth must be filed down so that a proper bonding is can be put in place. Your dentist can customize the exact color, size and shape of your teeth with this simple cosmetic procedure. With veneers, you will enjoy the full function of a natural smile. Routine oral hygiene such as daily brushing and flossing is always recommended in keeping your porcelain veneers looking their best for years to come. Porcelain veneers are very hard, but they can chip. If you have bruxism (grinding or clenching of teeth) you may need to use a night guard to protect your natural teeth and your new veneers.
Group Health Dental has experience in transforming smiles with porcelain veneers. Your investment in porcelain veneers is well worth it when your once gapped grin becomes the Hollywood smile you have always dreamed of.
