It can be hard to feel confident about your smile when your front teeth have small chips or cracks. The good news is that veneers are often an ideal solution for patients who wish to improve the appearance of teeth in the “smile zone.” The smile zone refers to teeth that are most prominent when you smile, laugh, talk, or otherwise show your teeth.
A beautiful smile will help you make great first impressions, whether you’re on a job interview or a first date. It may also help boost your self-esteem in the long run and affect how you present yourself while out in public. For instance, the people in your life may start to notice how you carry yourself with more confidence after you get veneers.
Your teeth may be more susceptible to injury if they already have small chips and cracks. For this reason, it’s best to ask our cosmetic dentist about your treatment options. To treat minor cosmetic damage, Dr. West may suggest dental veneers to strengthen and improve the appearance of front teeth.

Most stains respond to professional teeth whitening. However, there are certain dental stains that extend beyond the surface layer of teeth. For example, you may have deep staining from being exposed to excessive fluoride at a young age or taking antibiotics. Under these circumstances, Dr. West may recommend either porcelain dental veneers or crowns to improve the appearance of deeply stained teeth.
