How does your smile make you feel when you look in the mirror? Dental veneers might be a possible solution if you want to change or improve them. The dentist recommends veneers for minor to average tooth damage such as chipped, cracks, discoloration, and enamel erosion. Veneers can help repair dental damage and restore the function and aesthetics of your teeth, giving you a beautiful and confident smile.
Generally, a dental veneer is a thin tooth-colored shell that is adhered to the front of a tooth to repair and cover the damage. Veneers are either made of composite or porcelain materials. To attach the veneer without making it look bulky or unnatural, the dentist will need to trim a part of the tooth’s enamel. On average, the treatment only takes about two appointments.
To know whether you’re a good candidate for veneers, you’d need to visit a dental clinic near you for professional diagnosis and advice. The dentist will examine the condition of your dental damage and advise you on the most appropriate treatment. The dentist might recommend a crown if the damage is significant.
Below are some dental flaws that dental veneers can address.
Your teeth can get discolored or stained due to various reasons like smoking, certain medications, poor dental hygiene, and high consumption of pigmented and acidic items. If your teeth stains don’t respond to teeth whitening or bleaching, your dentist might recommend getting veneers.
Veneers are placed on the stained teeth, giving your teeth a brighter and whiter smile. Porcelain veneers are the best for ensuring a whiter, natural, and long-lasting smile. Compared to your natural teeth, porcelain veneers resist wear and staining better. You won’t have to worry about bleaching your teeth any time soon.
Dental chips and cracks can ruin your smile and impair your bite function. Whether the dental damage is from a fall or an accident, repairing the damage is essential to restore your smile and oral function. Similarly, if the damage is left untreated, it can worsen, leading to further complications such as decay and tooth loss.
Fortunately, dental veneers can help. Veneers are placed over the entire front of the damaged teeth, covering any underlying damage. You can smile broader and more confidently.
High consumption of acidic items and other dental flaws such as teeth grinding, misalignments, and overcrowding can lead to worn-out teeth. It can increase your risk of developing sensitivity, cavities, decay, and destroy your teeth’ structure. Veneers can rebuild worn-out teeth, restoring the teeth’ shape, color, and structure.
If your teeth have different shapes or are improperly gapped, your smile can look unnatural, and you might experience difficulty eating. Even worse, it can cause poor bite function and make you vulnerable to decay and teeth misalignments. Thankfully, you may not need lengthy treatments such as orthodontics to get rid of gapped or misshapen teeth. Veneers can close improper gaps between teeth and improve the shape and size of your teeth, giving you a natural and healthy smile.
If you only need to treat minor teeth crookedness, you don’t need orthodontics. Veneers can be customized to cover minor teeth crookedness, giving you a straighter and more natural-looking smile. Invisalign and traditional braces are more for average to complex teeth misalignments.
You might have a gum tissue issue when you have a gummy smile. The dentist can remove excess gum tissue or lengthen your teeth with porcelain veneers, or both, to give you a natural smile.
Since veneers are custom-made according to your specific condition and needs, they are ideal solutions for repairing dental damage and optimizing your smile. For more information about dental veneers treatment and services, contact Randolph Dental Group.
