Dental veneers have been known to improve your smile as a form of cosmetic dentistry. Each day, more and more people are turning to dental veneers than ever before thanks to the success and popularity they leave behind. Here at Kennebunk Center for Dentistry in Kennebunk, Maine, our office is happy to talk to you about the ways dental veneers can improve your smile.

Dental veneers cover the fronts of your visible teeth in your smile. They are very thin shells, which are custom-made to fit your natural tooth making them look flawless. There are many flaws in your teeth dental veneers can improve. For example, here is a list of the most common flaws dental veneers can correct:

-Cracked or chipped teeth: If your tooth has a crack or chip in the enamel of your tooth, a dental veneer can be placed over it, protecting your tooth and restoring your smile.
-Discolored or stained teeth: Over the course of time, things like foods, drinks, medications, or accidents can occur, which means your teeth can fade and become stained or discolored. Dental veneers can be placed over them making your teeth whiter and brighter than ever before.
-Slightly gapped teeth: If you see small gaps between your teeth, it is possible for the dental veneers to be shaped to correct this issue.
-Slightly misaligned teeth: If you notice your teeth are slightly off or crooked, in some cases, dental veneers can be used to give your teeth a straight and natural appearance.
