If you’ve been considering dental veneers, here are all the things you need to know:
The first step is to understand what exactly veneers are. In short, they are essentially tooth-coloured thin shells that are placed on the surface of teeth to change their appearance and improve the look of your mouth and smile. They are normally made of porcelain or resin composite materials and attach permanently to your teeth through a bonding process.
Veneers are a great option if you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth and want to improve your look but remember that veneers are meant to improve cosmetic concerns and not a solution for serious issues.
Veneers cover the front surface of an already existing tooth while dental implants replace an entire tooth and crowns encase the entire tooth so keep that in mind when looking into the different options. If you have chipped, broken, or discolored teeth, then veneers are a great choice to help you achieve a perfect smile. You can get a single veneer or several of them, which would create an even set of teeth and improve your appearance.
Lasts Over a Decade
The veneer application does involve grinding down the tooth so that the veneer can be placed properly without any issues. An anesthetic may be required as the procedure can be painful. The cost of veneers varies depending on the type of veneer you want, the brand name and fees of your dentist, but all traditional veneers can last up to ten to fifteen years.
If you feel insecure about your teeth, veneers are something to consider. If you have gaps between your teeth, small teeth, chipped teeth or unusually shaped teeth veneers can help so that you’re no longer uncomfortable with the look of your teeth and can smile confidently. That is what makes veneers such a great investment because they will help boost your confidence.
The best part is that the recovery process is quick and won’t keep you from your daily routine. Once the veneers have been cemented onto your teeth and the anesthetic wears off you will be able to eat and chew without any pain or discomfort which is a bonus when compared to other dental procedures.
