How Porcelain Veneers can Correct Tooth Gaps

No one is born with a perfect smile, which is why so many celebrities (including George Clooney, Demi Moore, Tom Cruise, and Hilary Duff) have chosen dental veneers to provide them with those gleaming Hollywood smiles. But Pacific Dental Care can give you the beautiful smile of a star at a non-celebrity price.

You might hesitate to flash a full smile because you are embarrassed by the fact that they have been stained by too much coffee, tea, or red wine and just can’t be whitened with over-the-counter products.  Veneers can cover up that discoloration.

Or perhaps you are shy about smiling due to teeth that have been chipped, cracked, or worn down. Or they might be misshapen, smaller or shorter than neighboring teeth, or they came in crooked and the misalignment was never corrected by braces.

But gaps between teeth are often the most obvious flaw that motivates patients to take the first step towards a full cosmetic smile makeover by having them covered by veneers.

Veneers Before and After Front 43

The reasons for gaps, most commonly in the upper two front teeth, include a jaw that is too large for the set of teeth, teeth that are too small for the jaw, thumb sucking as a child, a large tongue that has unconsciously pushed against the front teeth, and gum disease.

Pacific Dental Care’s veneers are made of thin pieces of biocompatible dental porcelain because this material is the most durable (it can last up to 10 years with proper care) and it can be shaded to look exactly like the neighboring teeth that do not have veneers placed on them.

Or you could decide to make your entire smile more glamorous by having Dr. Marine give your teeth a professional whitening, then picking the same whiter shade for the color of your veneers (since veneers are translucent, if your teeth are dark, you will want to do this at least for those receiving veneers).

Dr. Marine specializes in No-Prep Veneers, which enable her to remove a small amount of the surface enamel so that each covered tooth will not stick out unnaturally.  Then she will create an impression to send to a top dental lab, as well as a temporary version to wear so you can get used to chewing with the actual veneers.

About two weeks later, you will come in for the fitting and adjustment. A bonding agent is placed on each treated tooth and the veneer is attached and hardened by a special light.

In the first weeks after placement, you will want to avoid foods that could harm the veneers, such as popcorn, hard candy, nuts, or seeds.

Set an appointment today with Dr. Marine, gentle dentist in Glendale, to explore your best options for a new smile.
