Are you considering dental restorations to help improve your teeth's function and appearance? Dental veneers may be right for you. Here are five reasons you may consider this treatment option.
What are veneers?
Dental veneers are very thin, custom-made porcelain restorations that fit your tooth's shape. Your dentist bonds them to the front of your teeth to change the appearance of your smile.
Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth to use in making your veneers. They will then bond the veneers to your teeth. Dental veneers imitate the translucency of teeth so they look and feel natural.
Why should I consider getting dental veneers?
1. Dental veneers can help restore your smile and protect your teeth.
Dental veneers can help to restore your smile's function and appearance. They can protect the surface of your teeth from damage and discolouration, and cover stains which teeth whitening can't remove.
2. Veneers can help resolve many dental issues.
Dental veneers can be used to change your smile's appearance, including your the shape and colour of your teeth. They can also be used to repair issues with size, spacing, alignment and chipping.
3. Dental veneers can last years if properly cared for.
Porcelain veneers usually last about 15 years, longer than composite resin. Depending on how well they are cared for, however, they can last up to 20 years.
To help your veneers last, you should keep a rigorous oral hygiene routine. This means brushing your teeth twice per day and flossing daily.
4. Veneers are less intrusive than other restorative treatments.
Dental veneers are less invasive than dental crowns. They also don't require as much reshaping of your teeth.
5. You can have veneers on several teeth.
If one tooth has become misshapen or discoloured, you may require only one veneer. Some patients may want to change the appearance of all of their teeth and so, will choose to have more done.
Bonus: Veneers are cost-effective.
Dental veneers are a common dental restoration in part because of their cost. Depending on your dental issue and the type of veneer, the cost of this treatment may make more economical sense for you than other treatment options.
Dental veneers may not be for everyone. The only way to know for sure if they will work for you is if you see your dentist for a consultation.
