Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are bonded to your teeth to enhance the appearance of your smile. They are typically made of porcelain or composite resin and are designed to hide stains, chips, cracks, or other imperfections in your teeth. With care, they can last for many years to help you enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile for many years to come.
What Do Veneers Correct?
Veneers can conceal teeth imperfections like dental stains and teeth discoloration. Porcelain veneers are an excellent option for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their smile because of deep discolorations. These thin shells of durable dental ceramic completely cover up the surface of your tooth in order to restore your bright smile and complement your appearance.
Dental veneers can conceal a variety of cosmetic imperfections, including spaces between teeth. Gaps between the teeth can make a smile appear uneven or poorly spaced. In certain cases, this can negatively affect a person’s self-esteem and confidence. Veneers can close these gaps and give patients the confidence they deserve.
If you’re dealing with one or more cracked teeth, porcelain veneers can help restore the functionality of your mouth while enhancing your appearance. Veneers can cover gaps or cracks in your teeth while also preventing additional cracking and chipping in the future.
- Straightens crooked teeth
Dental veneers are also called instant orthodontics, as they are an ideal choice for patients who want to improve their smile without undergoing orthodontic treatment. A veneer can be made to balance out and straighten teeth that are overly crowded, overlap, or sit at an odd angle since it gives each tooth a brand-new front surface. Your veneers will function both individually and collectively in the hands of a skilled cosmetic dentist to result in a smooth arch of beautifully balanced, evenly-spaced teeth.
How Are Veneers Placed?
The first step involves trimming away a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneer. Once the tooth is shaped appropriately, and the veneer has been fitted in its proper place, your dentist will use a special light to bond the restoration to your tooth. With proper care, it will remain in place for several years without chipping or becoming damaged.
How To Care For Veneers?
Veneers are strong and long-lasting, but they do require special care to prevent them from damaging or staining over time. Be sure to avoid biting down on hard objects, such as ice, fingernails, and pens. We also advise against chewing on pencils or using your teeth as tools to open packages. While porcelain is durable, it can still chip if you bite something too hard. By following these care instructions, your veneers will stay looking fresh and new for many years.
