Have you noticed yourself taking measures to hide the imperfections in your smile from others? Whether you're dealing with one major dental problem or several minor flaws, Dr. Mike White, your Chehalis, Washington dentist, can fit your teeth with veneers, a Teeth Whiteningrevolutionary smile makeover. Here are a few of the ways that veneers can give you a brand new smile to be proud of:

Whitening

Many people choose dental whitening as a way to counteract the effects of staining. However, some conditions don't allow the whitening agents to do their job properly. People who have permanent stains from antibiotic use, visible dental work, or exposed roots from gum recession will likely have less-than-perfect results with bleaching their teeth. However, veneers are an excellent way to fix these and any other problems you may have with discoloration. They fit over your teeth and cover up staining with beautiful natural-looking sections of porcelain.

Proportion and shape

Even if you have a full set of teeth, they may not be in proportion with each other. Porcelain veneers give you the perfectly-shaped smile you've always wanted. Your Chehalis dentist will make sure your veneers are designed to not only match the teeth surrounding them but to be proportionate with your other facial features as well.

Straightening

If your problem is the alignment of your teeth, good news: you may not have to spend months wearing braces to correct it! Once they're placed, veneers instantly fill in small gaps or correct minor crookedness. Major problems with crowding and overlapping may need braces. Your Chehalis dentist has the experience and expertise to make the best determination for you.

A great smile can open a world of possibilities. To get started on this journey, contact Dr. White, your Chehalis dentist, to learn more about veneers or any other cosmetic dental procedure.
