Veneers Offer Several Advantages for Minor Dental Imperfections
Posted on 1/30/2020 by office
Dental veneers can be a great option for those who have small dental imperfections they want to hide. Veneers are small porcelain covers that are attached to the front of your teeth.
They can hide discoloration, gaps between the teeth, cracks, and chips. They're not full fake teeth, and your real teeth don't have to be removed. However, they can give you a glorious new smile. Here are a few of the reasons why you might opt for veneers instead of other options.
You Can Keep Your Natural Teeth
None of your teeth are removed when you have veneers installed. Instead, the surface of each tooth is sheered down so that the veneer can fit on it without sticking out. This does remove some of the enamel on the front of the tooth, but it must be done so that the veneers don't stick out too far. Today's veneers are thinner than older ones, so less of the tooth has to be shaved off.
By keeping your natural teeth, the process is much less invasive. You don't have to worry about the pain that comes with tooth removal or dealing with a long recovery time.
They're a Permanent Fix
Veneers are permanent additions to your teeth, so you don't have to worry about fillings falling out or whitening agents leaving bits of tooth unchanged. You do, though, have to be sure you brush your veneers regularly, plus you need to brush and floss the teeth behind them to prevent the veneers from staining. However, it can be very nice to know that you don't have to do anything extra to have a great smile.
They Look Totally Natural
No one is going to notice that your veneers aren't real teeth. They're designed to be incredibly realistic, and as long as you take care of them, you'll have that great smile you always wanted without the long recovery time that comes with implants.
