Veneers: Not Just for Cosmetic Purposes

Veneers | Joel Lane Smith, DDS | Beaumont TXWhen you think of veneers, you likely think of getting them for merely cosmetic purposes. And although veneers are one of the best ways to transform your physical appearance from drab to fab, they are also used for medical related dental issues. From translucent to chipped teeth, this article will list a few dental conditions that are medical related. Read on to learn more.

Translucent Teeth

With age, excessive wear, and the consumption of acidic foods and beverages, the enamel on your teeth can erode— leaving you with translucent teeth. And translucent teeth are not only cosmetically unappealing, but it means that they are weak and can easily break off. As a great solution, Dr. Joel Smith can apply dental veneers over your existing teeth so that you won’t have to worry about them breaking off the next time you bite into an apple.

Cracked Teeth

Whether you were recently involved in a car accident or some sporting accident, having a cracked tooth isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. To help repair your tooth, and depending on how severe the crack is, Dr. Joel Smith may recommend that you get a dental veneer so that the crack doesn’t get worse or deeper.

Chipped Teeth

Chipped teeth are much more than a cosmetic issue; they can make chewing food and functioning to seem impossible. As one of the best options to fix chipped teeth, veneers can easily be applied to your existing teeth and give you back your ability to function like normal once again.

Dental veneers aren’t just for cosmetic purposes. In fact, if you have a damaged tooth that is in need of repair, a dental veneer may be the perfect solution for you and your mouth.
