If you have a gap between your two front teeth, 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. If you did not receive orthodontic treatment to correct the alignment of your teeth to close the gap, porcelain veneers may be a good option to fix your smile.
Porcelain veneers create beautiful, natural looking smiles. This cosmetic dentistry procedure can fix a number of dental dilemmas including gaps in your teeth. Dr. Leia Porcaro at Grateful Dental has experience correcting gaps of all sizes. A smile transformation can be made by a skilled cosmetic dentist like Dr. Porcaro.
Because of the functionality of porcelain veneers, they are an excellent option for front teeth. These aesthetically appealing covers can change the size, shape and color of your teeth. If your teeth are badly stained, misshapen, have wide spaces or other imperfections, porcelain veneers can turn an average smile into a picture perfect masterpiece. Porcelain veneers must be taken care of and treated like an investment. Veneers are wafer thin covers that fit on or over the front of your teeth. A small amount of your tooth must be removed so the veneers can be bonded to your teeth. You can keep your veneers looking good for years with proper care. Of course it is important to maintain proper oral health by brushing and flossing daily. To care for your veneers you should avoid biting on hard surfaces like pencils, crunching ice or hard candy. 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.
