Veneers are a cosmetic enhancement that can resolve a variety of dental maladies from deep dental stain to uneven teeth. A consultation with your cosmetic dentist will outline the benefits enjoyed when correcting your dental issues with porcelain veneers.
Why Should You Choose Veneers?
Veneers are wafer thin shells that are bonded to the front of teeth requiring change. Some of the many benefits include:
- Veneers are minimally invasive … they do require a small amount of enamel to be removed from the front surface of teeth to be treated. This is done so when veneers are cemented in place all teeth will be symmetrical leaving you with an even smile.
- They are versatile … veneers have the ability to correct any number of cosmetic issues. Deep dental stain, chipped or broken teeth, uneven dentition, or unwanted gaps between teeth – any or all of these can be corrected with this cosmetic application.
- They are a permanent solution … veneers are intended to last for many years.
- Easy to care for … no special treatment is required. Just brush and floss daily. Although they are usually made from porcelain making them stain resistant, you may wish to avoid or limit foods and beverages known to stain.
- Finally, and probably most important, they look and feel great … you will be able to forget that you ever had cosmetic dental problems. You should avoid biting into foods that are hard to prevent dislodging. Cut food into pieces – anything can still be enjoyed, but just consumed differently.
How Does The Veneer Process Work?
You will consult with your cosmetic dentist to determine the number of teeth to be treated – that is another advantage … you can have any number of teeth improved. It’s entirely up to you.
Once teeth have been prepped, impressions are taken for the dental lab to fabricate your veneers. During your next appointment, veneers are tried on for fit and appearance. When ready, they will be cemented in place. In just a couple of dental visits your smile has been transformed.
Your initial consultation will help determine if veneers are right for you. Nail biters, those who grind their teeth, patients suffering from gum disease or excessive decay might not be the ideal candidates for veneers.
