A dental veneer is an ultra-thin shell of tooth-colored porcelain or zirconia that it’s cemented over the surface of your teeth to correct dental issues and are considered an excellent solution to improve your smile. Whether zirconia or porcelain, dental veneers can improve smile imperfections caused by issues such as:
Stained or discolored teeth
Gaps between teeth
Chipped or cracked teeth
Worn down teeth
Veneers are similar to crowns in that they cover existing teeth. Veneers are viewed as less invasive because very little of the enamel covering the teeth has to be removed allowing the teeth under the veneers to be better preserved. Although veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they help improve the smiles by aligning and shaping teeth, they can also protect your teeth, eliminating the need for more extensive treatments.
Are Veneers right for you?
Veneers are a great option for people who wish to brighten their smile but have stains on their teeth which are too severe to be whitened. They can also be applied to make teeth appear to be straighter, or to make the shape and size of the teeth appear more uniform.
To determine if veneers are right for you, a preliminary consultation is needed. Treatment involving tooth preparation is irreversible, so it’s important to evaluate your oral health and discuss your options. Find out if Veneers are the right treatment for you.
People who have veneers should have regular dental check-ups and anticipate the need for polishing as a method to prolong the lifespan of the dental veneers. Similarly, cleanings can help prevent staining of the resin materials and therefore extending the beneficial look of the veneers.
