Teeth. They come in all shapes and sizes — and grow at different rates. Genetics are the true indicators of what kind of teeth you’ll end up with. And while orthodontics can straighten teeth, only cosmetic dentistry can change the size of your teeth to fit your smile. Porcelain veneers or Lumineers will give you a natural-looking smile that complements your features.
A Dazzling Movie Star Smile
If there’s one thing many celebrities have in common, it’s perfect teeth. Some movie stars go a little overboard with the enhancements, however. “Chiclets” has become a pop culture term to describe poorly done, prominent caps (inspired by the square-shaped gum of the same name). You’ve seen this less-than-stellar look on celebs like Hillary Duff who suddenly appeared with too-big veneers then clearly had the procedure redone to adjust the veneers to be in better proportion to her mouth and face.
Some people are simply built with teeth that are too big for their face or far too small. Those with too-small teeth can sometimes fit into the gummy smile category as well. When this is the case, you may not smile much or be incredibly self-conscious when you do open your mouth. But you’re certainly not destined to live with these teeth forever.
The Cosmetic Solution for a Perfect Smile
Porcelain veneers are the best way to get the desired smile makeover when your teeth are either too big or too small. Before fitting the veneers, your existing teeth are shaped in such a way that the veneers are easily, quickly, and permanently attached to give you the smile you want. Porcelain veneers, it then follows, also eliminate chips, stains, or discoloration.
Lumineers are another version of veneers but they are thinner and placed over your teeth. This cosmetic dentistry procedure requires less time and less alteration to existing teeth.
