Can dental veneers fix any broken smile? Although veneers are highly durable and proven to be effective for enhancing the look of a smile, they are not designed to protect against future damage or decay. Instead, they remove the previous look of a smile and provide your mouth with a much more pleasing exterior.
Dental veneers only attach to the fronts of teeth. Although they can cover up minor cracks and chips, oftentimes, additional services are required to ensure damaged teeth have no holes for bacteria to enter and attack the pulp. Specifically, if there is damage to the backside of teeth, dental veneers are of little use.
However, veneers are highly customizable and can correct or conceal most visual impairments teeth can have. Veneers can even be designed to correct spacing issues between teeth. Due to their customizable design, it is possible for the size, shape, rotation, and color of veneers to be well thought out and implemented to ensure the greatest possible look.
With veneers, your smile will not only look better, but it can be stronger and easier to clean too.
