Have Small Child-Sized Teeth In Your Adult Mouth? What To Do

If your teeth look very small in your mouth, like you have child teeth instead of adult teeth, you can get this fixed with the help of a cosmetic dental professional. Not only may you be bothered by the way that your teeth look, but, as they wear down over time, the teeth may be difficult to use, and they are going to appear even smaller over time.  Veneers are a great option to cover the teeth, fixing both your cosmetic problem and working to protect the teeth. Here are a couple of things you'll want to consider.

Get Natural-Looking Teeth

The veneers will be composed of porcelain and will be designed to look like natural teeth in your mouth. These will be shaped so they are in proportion with the rest of you mouth, and the white coloring will make for a bright white smile. Since you keep your natural gum tissue, no one will notice that you've had work done.

Prevent Cavities  

The porcelain veneers are going to cover the original teeth you have in your mouth. This protects the base of the tooth from erosion which can lead to cavities, so you can avoid fillings, root canals, and other problems associated with deterioration and decay. Preventing cavities saves you money and time in the dental chair in the future.

Avoid Surgery

If you decided that you wanted to replace the teeth with implants, or have them removed to put dentures in, these would require surgery and extraction procedures. You can avoid these different operations with veneers, because the veneers are bonded to the natural teeth in your mouth.

Fast Procedure

Once the veneers are sized and created, they can be put on the teeth, and you'll resume eating and drinking like you did before you had the veneers put on within hours. This is ideal if you don't have a lot of time to dedicate to having your smile fixed.

If the way your teeth look make you unhappy and you're having a hard time figuring out what to do to fix their small appearance, covering the teeth with veneers is a fast and easy option to get a better smile. Make a consultation with a local cosmetic dentist like Timothy Richter to see what other options they may suggest for fixing your small teeth, and to see if veneers are going to be the best option to fix your smile.
