Dental veneers are useful for correcting a number of cosmetic concerns—this versatile cosmetic option is truly transformative for many patients. Many patients choose dental veneers because dental veneers can completely transform damaged or severely aging teeth. If you see yourself in this list, our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists may be able to help you realize your dream smile with dental veneers!

Patients with dark teeth

Dark teeth can be the result of environmental stains, such as those from foods and drinks, or dark teeth can be the result of natural changes in the dental structure as they age. Dental enamel—the bright, white outer covering of the tooth—thins with age. As the enamel thins, the deeper layers of the tooth begin to show through—making the teeth appear dark or dull.

Patients with damaged teeth

If you have cracks or chips in your teeth, or if you have teeth uneven edges, dental veneers can help give your smile a fresh, young appearance again. Because dental veneers cover existing teeth completely, they can completely mask existing structural problems with your teeth.

Patients with naturally poorly proportioned teeth

If some of your natural teeth have always appeared poorly proportioned or oddly shaped, veneers can help you too. Your dental veneers will be crafted—shaped and sized—to bring your smile into balance. With veneers your dentist can make certain teeth look larger, and refine the edges of your teeth. The overall result is a smile that looks well proportioned and perfectly designed.

Dental veneers can help many different types of patients achieve the smiles of their dreams. Our O’Fallon veneers dental office will walk you through the treatment process, and help you determine whether dental veneers can help you realize your dream smile!
