A smile is a powerful way for you to communicate. But if you feel self-conscious about your teeth, you may lose this power by not smiling at all, or by covering your mouth when you talk or smile. With advances in modern dentistry, there’s no reason you should be unhappy with the way your teeth look. Occasionally a front tooth gets chipped from a sports accident or other trauma. Porcelain veneers are an excellent option for this type of concern. Veneers are custom made coverings that fit on the front and side surface of your tooth. While they are not suitable for every patient, veneers are a cosmetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions of the front teeth.
