Dental veneers are thin transparent shells that are designed to resemble a natural tooth and are placed over the front visible portion of the tooth. If you want a fantastic smile, dental veneers are the best solution. Veneers not only enhance your smile's aesthetics but also protect the tooth's surface from impairment. They are artificial restorations meant only to improve your teeth's appearance.
What Are the Uses of Dental Veneers?
- The Veneers help to rectify numerous dental problems by:
- Concealing stained and discolored teeth
- Filling significant gaps between the upper front teeth
- Safeguarding a chipped or worn tooth.
- Hiding crooked or misshapen teeth.
What Are the Different Types of Veneers?
Veneers are made of different materials, with each type having its advantages.
Veneers are mostly fabricated from porcelain as they have a natural-looking surface. They are solid and durable and don't stain easily. Porcelain veneers need a thin layer of the teeth's enamel to be scraped off to be attached properly. This is done to cement the veneers over the tooth's surface.
Composite Resin Veneers
A composite resin veneer is manufactured from a tooth-colored filling material cemented to the tooth. They are easy to fix and can be refurbished quickly in case they get damaged. They cost less than porcelain veneers and need fewer dental visits to attach.
Lumineers are advanced versions of veneers. At 0.2mm thickness, they are half the thickness of conventional porcelain veneers. Because of this, the removal of enamel from the existing natural tooth is no longer needed.
Instant veneers are ready-to-use restorations. They are much cheaper than porcelain or composite veneers and the treatment can be accomplished in just one dental visit.
What Are the Advantages of Dental Veneers?
They offer an easy way to whiten your smile. Consuming staining foods and beverages can make your teeth turn an unpleasant shade of brown or yellow. And because veneers are primarily resistant to stains, you don't have to worry about your treated teeth getting discolored.
They help repair minor cosmetic issues. Veneers help cover minor orthodontic problems once set in place. Your natural teeth may still be crooked, chipped, or gapped, but the transparent veneers can disguise them.
They also help correct cosmetic dental issues such as minor misalignment, cracks, gaps between teeth, and discoloration.
They assist in supplementing tooth enamel. Your enamel structure may decline due to vigorous tooth brushing or be worn away by highly acidic food items. The stomach acid can destroy your enamel, which cannot be substituted naturally. Hence, veneers are an outstanding solution for teeth with enamel abrasion.
