5 Common Smile Flaws Easily Fixed With Veneers
Do you have smile imperfections you’ve struggled to live with? Veneers could offer an easy and straightforward solution. Read on to learn what veneers are and what they can do.

Your smile is often the first thing people notice. Unfortunately, that also means the slightest imperfection can impact your self-confidence. But we have something you can smile about, even if you have a number of minor dental flaws.

Robert A. Scherrer, DMD, and his skilled team at Advanced Dental Care of Ridgewood in Ridgewood, New Jersey, can correct numerous dental concerns with a simple solution: veneers

This treatment can instantly transform your smile without pain or lengthy treatment times. How? We bond custom-made, tooth-like shells onto the visible portions of any of your front teeth, concealing any imperfections you may have and leaving you with flawless, natural-looking results.

Do you have concerns about your smile? Here are five common issues we can address with veneers.

1. Stubborn stains and discoloration

It’s no wonder that professional whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments. After all, it’s hard to resist the brilliance of a bright, white smile. Unfortunately, some dental staining doesn’t respond to bleaching. That’s where veneers can come in.

If you have bleach-resistant discoloration, we can conceal it with a custom-made veneer — whether you have one problem tooth or several.

2. Tooth imperfections

Do you feel like one or more teeth have a strange shape? How about ridges or grooves?

The appearance of teeth can vary from person to person, even those considered “normal.” However, several factors can affect the shape, size, and appearance of a tooth, from certain diseases to your genes.

No matter what’s to blame for your tooth imperfections, veneers can solve the problem by hiding them.

3. Gaps or spaces

Are you troubled by a gap between your teeth? How about several? You may not need an orthodontist. Instead, we can place veneers on your teeth that are just big enough to conceal the spaces or gaps. That means you can get a flawless smile in a few office visits — and no braces required!

4. Crooked teeth

We know what you’re thinking: There’s no way veneers can solve crooked teeth. And, technically, you’re right! A veneer isn’t a teeth-straightening system like braces or Invisalign®

However, we can place a veneer on a crooked tooth, and the only thing anyone will see is the veneer, which will look picture-perfect! This makes veneers a cost-effective and quick solution for minor alignment problems that may be sabotaging your smile.

5. Chips, cracks, and wear

Veneers don’t just address cosmetic issues. They can also be placed on teeth to reinforce them if they have minor chips or cracks or if they are worn down some. These types of problems can occur for several reasons, such as:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Teeth grinding
  • Years of use
  • Accidents

Fortunately, a veneer can offer quick solutions for a wide range of tooth issues. And, not only can they improve the appearance of your tooth, but they can also add an additional layer of protection at the same time.

If you have flaws or imperfections that are keeping you from smiling, we can help. To learn more about veneers or any of our other dental options, call 201-622-7385 or book an appointment online with Advanced Dental Care of Ridgewood today.
