Dental veneers are a great way to deal with a number of dental problems. A veneer is a tooth-like, thin shell that covers the front of a tooth. It looks just like a real tooth, and it hides any flaws on the front of the tooth behind it. Getting veneers often requires multiple visits to the dentist. During the installation, a dentist must remove a portion of the enamel before attaching the veneers to them.
Dental veneers make it possible for anyone to have a perfect smile. These prosthetics can be used to deal with a wide range of dental issues like:
Here are a few great reasons why patients should consider getting veneers:
Most people have a hard time feeling confident when they are not happy with the way their teeth look. It can make a person reluctant to go to social gatherings and even more hesitant to smile when they interact with others.
With veneers, the patient's smile will be looking great the moment the dentist finishes the installation. It will make one look for every little excuse to smile.
Those who have spaces between their teeth can use veneers to address that. Holes are easy to notice when one open's their mouth, but veneers can easily close them up.
Chipped teeth tend to occur at the worst possible moment, and even the littlest ones can ruin a person's smile. Veneers can quickly fix that problem and make a tooth look better than it ever did. Veneers can also restore the appearance of a broken tooth.
Teeth tend to lose their pearly white color as a person ages. They can also become discolored due to habits like drinking coffee or red wine regularly. These items have potent coloring agents that can seep deep into the dentin. Teeth might become discolored due to tooth decay and fluorosis. When whitening treatments are not enough to address discoloration, veneers are a great alternative. Dental veneers will restore the person's teeth to their original pearly white color, and they are also very resistant to stains.
Veneers can also be used to fix crooked or misaligned teeth. It can help some patients to avoid having to wear orthodontic devices like braces for an extended period of time. Dentists can place the veneers at angles that make the patient's teeth appear appropriately aligned.
Dental veneers are used to address a number of issues you might be dealing with like chips, breaks, stains and minor alignment issues. It is a cheaper alternative to other options like crowns, and they can last up to 20 years with good oral hygiene.
