A flaw in your smile is only a flaw when: it makes you feel insecure or it causes problems for your health. If your smile has unique characteristics that you feel confident about and your smile is healthy, it has no flaws. However, if you have any cosmetic issues in your smile that make you feel self-conscious about smiling, talking, or laughing, you may have smile flaws. Porcelain veneers can be a great way to address issues about your smile that may make you feel self-conscious. Prior to contrary belief, veneers do not have to look like a cookie-cutter version of everyone else’s smile. Veneers can provide a customized upgrade to your own teeth.
