Problems Porcelain Veneers Can Fix

in Philadelphia, PA

People who feel self-conscious or embarrassed by their teeth are often focused on the unhappiness of the situation. Instead, think about the positive – whatever is wrong with your smile can be fixed. In many cases, porcelain veneers are the ultimate solution to the aesthetic complaints you have about your teeth. Find out why veneers from Dentistry for Life can be the right upgrade for your smile.

The problems porcelain veneers can fix in Philadelphia are many, and they can be little problems or big, concealing everything from chipped teeth to surface cracks. They are, quite simply, a magical cosmetic dentistry treatment that results in a natural-looking, flawless smile that makes you look like a VIP. In just two visits to your Philadelphia cosmetic dentist you can have gorgeous teeth. If you have any of the following problems with your smile, consider life-changing veneers:

Narrow Smile

If your canines or pre-molars are situated behind the teeth in front of them instead of arcing out, this makes your top teeth look out of proportion and creates a narrow smile. Crowded teeth cause a smile to look smaller than it is – but that isn’t because you don’t have room for a bigger smile.

Veneers eliminate the dark, negative space on the sides of your mouth. By customizing veneers in size, shape, thickness, length, and width, your cosmetic dentist builds a balanced, wider, broader smile.

Tetracycline stains

Antibiotic use in childhood, usually under the age of 8, can cause tetracycline stains. The drug becomes calcified in the not-yet-erupted permanent teeth, and when the adult teeth finally come in, they are permanently stained.

No amount of professional teeth whitening, tooth-brushing, or teeth cleanings can eliminate tetracycline stains, which developed along with the tooth itself. Porcelain veneers are the miraculous cosmetic dentistry treatment that can fix one or two tetracycline-stained teeth, or your entire smile.


If you have misaligned teeth, but braces are the last thing you want to think about, dental veneers can give you the straight smile you’ve always wanted. Carefully designed to build you a flawless smile, dental veneers are bonded to the front of your permanent teeth, covering up every imperfection, including crooked or gapped teeth.


A crooked smile is a characteristic that not everyone loves, especially if the asymmetry is caused by gum damage or worn teeth on just one side of the mouth. When your teeth look longer on one side of the mouth than the other, the culprit is often teeth grinding (bruxism) or gum recession. Porcelain dental veneers can build your smile back up to where it belongs, addressing any imbalance and creating a fully symmetrical smile that is healthy and strong.

Odd-shaped teeth

For some patients, an irregularly shaped tooth is a fun quirk, a trait that makes them stand out in a good way. Other patients consider a few wonky teeth as an interruption to what could otherwise be a perfect smile, drawing attention to themselves instead of to the emotion you’re expressing or the words you’re speaking.

Then there are the patients who have short teeth, which can make them look childlike, and all they want is to have a normal-sized smile. If you have oversized teeth, poorly erupted teeth, short teeth, oddly positioned or shaped teeth, porcelain veneers can conceal all the imperfections, making all your teeth look natural in size and shape.
