Veneers are a great solution for those who want to drastically improve their smile. Veneers are often made from porcelain or acrylic coverings that are fitted over your natural teeth to give you a brighter and fuller smile. What makes veneers a dentist’s favorite, is that they’re molded to fit over your natural teeth and provide extensive levels of comfort and durability than what your natural teeth would. Since they’re made from artificial composites, they don’t stain as easily as natural enamel would.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are small, often porcelain, coverings that are fitted onto your natural tooth to redesign the appearance of the tooth itself, which can ultimately change the entire appearance of your smile. They are thin-like casings that fit over your tooth exactly to form a cover that gives your teeth unbeatable protection and durability. While looking and feeling great, they’re also designed to give you that natural and white smile that you’ve always wanted by giving your teeth the same size, reducing excessive gum lines, and diminishing the appearance of damaged, cracked, chipped, or broken teeth.
One of the most popular materials that veneers are made from is porcelain. As professionals, we appreciate the many benefits that porcelain brings to veneers. With the durability of porcelain, you don’t have to worry about your veneers chipping, scratching, or staining over time, as they maintain their appearance with less maintenance and better ease than standard enamel. Because we use porcelain, this can also drive the price slightly higher than other types of dental solutions, but you will likely see longer lasting results.
In order to adequately apply veneers, we must first begin by filing down the natural tooth so that the new casing can fit securely on the front of the existing tooth. One of the main differences between veneers and crowns, is that veneers only cover the front of the tooth while a crown tends to cover the entire tooth itself. That means if you have a rotting tooth, or a severe cavity, veneers cannot resolve this issue as the tooth itself is infected. However, if you have a tooth that is mildly chipped or discolored and can’t be whitened with chemical bleach, a veneer would be the best solution. The veneers are then lightly placed and attached to the natural base of the tooth and fitted securely so that they do not shift when eating, drinking, or any other daily tasks.
What we enjoy most about veneers and what clients appreciate, is the natural aesthetic and comfort that veneers offer. Veneers offer a unique solution to natural looking teeth that are whiter and brighter than ever before. With veneers, you don’t have to worry about chipping, staining, and any other sorts of discoloration, as veneers will maintain their appearance for many years to come. Furthermore, veneers offer long-lasting beauty and comfort to those who wear them and without causing extensive amounts a pain, discomfort, or excessive damage to your natural mouth structure.
