If you are unhappy with your unsightly smile, you’re most likely in the process of researching cosmetic dentistry. Do you know what your options are in order to fix your worn out smile?

You may have come across porcelain veneers in your search for popular cosmetic dentistry services. This is just one of the many services that can turn your stained teeth into an impeccable smile.

Have you ever wondered if porcelain veneers are right for you? Are you suffering from any of the common signs which may indicate that veneers are a good option? If you’re curious to learn more about veneers, we invite you to read on.

6 Common Signs That Indicate You May Need Porcelain Veneers: Do You Suffer from These Signs?

1. You are unhappy with your smile.

If you’ve come across this blog post, you probably don’t like your smile right now. What don’t you like about it? Do you have slightly crooked teeth? Do you have years and years worth of cigarette smoking under your belt (a common cause for stained teeth)?

There are countless reasons why patients are unhappy with their smile. You can probably list about 3 things you wish you could change about yours, right?

All you need to do to fix your smile is call our talented cosmetic dentist, Dr. Dmitry Gorbatov. He has several years of experience with fixing worn out smiles using various cosmetic dentistry services. He is more than happy to speak with you about your concerns, so give us a call today!

2. You have cracked, chipped, or broken teeth.

There are a couple of options to fix chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. Veneers are a good option for this common dental problem. Maybe you got hit in the face with a ball, or your son or daughter accidentally smacked his or her face during gymnastics class, which resulted in a broken tooth.

Depending on the severity of the crack, chip, or break, Dr. Gorbatov may recommend a porcelain veneer. He can customize the veneer to match the rest of your teeth, which will result in a restored smile.

3. Your teeth are extremely stained or discolored, and regular whitening products will not work.

Many people have tried countless over-the-counter whitening products without much success. Some may report slight changes in the appearance of their teeth after using the whitening pastes or mouthwashes, but nothing too dramatic.

For patients who want to dramatically whiten stained teeth, either in-office whitening or porcelain veneers could work. Sometimes, depending on how severe the staining is, in-office whitening won’t even work. It is these patients who will greatly benefit from veneers since no other product or service will do the job.

Many of our patients get veneers for a whiter, more uniform smile. If you are interested in getting rid of the yellow, brown, and tan stains on your teeth, find out from our cosmetic dentist if veneers are right for you.

4. You have a gap or gaps between your teeth.

Do you have a small or big gap between any of your teeth? Many people have gaps that they would love to change. This often makes people feel embarrassed or ashamed to laugh or smile.

Some people get bonding, but other people choose veneers. Dr. Gorbatov will perform an evaluation of your smile to determine if veneers would be a better option compared to tooth bonding.

5. Your teeth are worn down.

It is a fact that teeth get worn down over time as people age. Worn down teeth are typically consequences of teeth grinding or clenching (known as bruxism). If someone clenches or grinds their teeth on a frequent basis, the tops of the teeth can become flat and dull over time. This can lead to significant dental problems if not handled properly.

For patients who have severely worn down teeth, porcelain veneers can be a great option. Veneers can restore the appearance of the teeth, and provide more stability for chewing food.

6. You have teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped.

Minor alignment issues can be resolved with the help of veneers. For teeth that are extremely misaligned, other orthodontic services would be better options.

Also, for those who have irregularly shaped teeth or uneven teeth, veneers can be a solution. Dr. Gorbatov can customize the size, shape, and color of the veneers to give you a more even, aesthetically-pleasing smile.

How Do You Know if You are a Good Candidate for Veneers?

Aside from the 6 common signs we just talked about, there are a few other things to keep in mind. In order to get porcelain veneers in Hollywood, FL, we recommend that patients should:

  • be committed to excellent, routine oral hygiene and care. This includes flossing every day and brushing 2-3 times per day.
  • have specific goals for his or her smile when it comes to the aesthetics of your smile. Do you know exactly what you find unappealing about your smile? Is there a problem that you know cosmetic dentistry can fix? Are you able to articulate all of these details to our cosmetic dentist during your consultation appointment? Do you have realistic expectations for your cosmetic dentistry treatments?
  • have excellent periodontal and good general oral health.
  • have the right amount of healthy tooth enamel. Our cosmetic dentist will be able to determine this. A good amount of enamel is needed because a thin layer typically gets removed in order to place the veneers.
