Find out whether veneers from our cosmetic dentist could hide those smile flaws that you hate so much.

Are you embarrassed by your smile? If so, dental veneers may be able to help! Generally made from beautiful porcelain, dental veneers are very thin tooth-colored shells that are used to cover the front of teeth in order to change their size, shape, or color. Whether you'd like to fix a slight imperfection on an individual tooth or drastically change the look of your smile, here are just some of the ways that dental veneers from Dr. Jeanette Murphy's office in Monroe, MI, can help you:

Discolorations

While yellow stains caused by foods and drinks can usually be treated with simple measures such as teeth whitening, deeper stains caused by smoking may not respond as effectively to whitening treatment. In this case, the best option may be to place veneers over the stained teeth to give you a whiter smile.

Chipped and Cracked Teeth

Even though enamel is incredibly strong, teeth can still end up being profoundly damaged. If a traumatic injury has left a tooth chipped or broken, a dental veneer may be able to fix the problem. Each veneer is custom-made based on your exact tooth measurements to ensure that veneers aren’t too large, bulky, or unnatural. By having out dentist bond veneers to the front of your teeth, it’s like the chip or crack never happened!

Oddly Shaped or Misaligned Teeth

Sometimes teeth contain defects that affect their overall shape or size. Sometimes teeth that don’t grow in perfectly straight and there may be gaps between teeth or teeth might overlap. These issues can also be addressed with dental veneers. Veneers have the ability to cover gaps, hide misaligned teeth, and achieve a straighter smile without braces.
