An asymmetrical smile can detract from your overall appearance in the same way a missing, broken, or crooked tooth might. With modern treatment options, including dental veneers in Yorkville, our dentist can help your smile be the best it can be.
How Can Veneers Help My Asymmetrical Smile?
Cosmetic dentistry is a way to help your teeth look better so that you are not self-conscious about problems with your smile. Dental veneers are a relatively non-invasive and natural looking way to fix a variety of cosmetic issues. One issue that can be treated with veneers is an asymmetrical smile.
Asymmetry can occur in your smile when teeth on one side are different sizes than those on the other, or if they are shaped differently. Teeth on one side of the mouth might also be misaligned, or have gaps between them. Veneers, which are affixed to the front surfaces of your teeth, can give your teeth uniform size, shape, spacing, and, in cases of minor misalignment, can even make them look straighter.
How Veneers Work
Veneers are custom made from special, thin porcelain. They are color matched to your teeth, and are shaped from casts your dentist makes. If you need a tooth’s shape to be slightly altered to make it more symmetrical, or if you wish to close up small gaps, the veneers are manufactured to achieve these goals.
Veneers require very little alteration to your teeth. Only a thin layer of enamel is removed to make room for them, then they are affixed with a special adhesive that allows them to bond to your tooth enamel. Once they are permanently affixed, veneers are strong and durable and can last for many years if you are careful to take good care of them.
If you are unhappy with the look of your smile, a consultation with our cosmetic dentist can help you determine if veneers can help. To find out if veneers can give you the look you want, please contact our office today at 416.922.1012.
