The Benefits of Dental Veneers
In cosmetic dentistry, one of the most trusted and proven procedures to improve the appearance of the smile is the placement of dental veneers. These thin, porcelain wafers are permanently bonded to the front surface of teeth. They can be customized to fit the exact shape and color of your ideal smile.
Types of issues fixed by dental veneers
Odds are, if there is something you do not like about the look of your smile, it can be fixed by dental veneers. Dental veneers have many benefits, from making the smile whiter to fixing imperfections in the shape of the teeth. No matter what part of the smile needs to be improved, veneers can help.
Many patients who opt for dental veneers have experienced some kind of trauma to one or multiple teeth. From auto accidents to using teeth as a tool, there are so many ways teeth can become damaged. Chipped teeth are often not just an issue of how it looks, but the decreased functionality of the tooth as well. Veneers can help restore tooth appearance and structure.
When a tooth is chipped, the jagged edge can irritate or even tear the inner lining of the mouth. The tooth is also more vulnerable to tooth decay and further damage when left uncovered. If the patient chooses to improve the color of teeth, as well as the chipped tooth, the veneers can be created in a lighter shade than the natural teeth.
Teeth that are deeply stained or grey often do not respond well to whitening treatments. Root canals can turn a tooth grey, and deep staining can occur from habits like smoking. Certain medications can also cause unpleasant staining.
Since veneers cover the entire surface of the front of the tooth, improving the brightness of teeth is possible. Our dentists can brighten the whole smile as well, placing white, natural-looking veneers on all front teeth to create a glowing appearance.
Many older patients find that the edges of their teeth become worn after years of use. Teeth grinding can wear away at teeth, even causing tiny fractures to form. Shortened, worn teeth are a common issue that veneers can be used to remedy.
A gap between teeth can cause an unwelcome distraction in the rest of the smile. If the patient prefers bringing teeth closer together, veneers can help bridge the gap and complete the smile.
Adult patients find that spending money and time on braces or aligners is a hassle. Orthodontic appliances are time-consuming and expensive. With veneers, a client can have straightened teeth in a matter of hours rather than years. Keep in mind that this only works on mild misalignments. Severely crooked teeth will likely need orthodontic treatment.
