Dental Veneers and When You Need Them
Veneers are a popular, minimally invasive dental treatment. These thin strips of porcelain or composite resin are attached to the front of your existing teeth to deliver protection and cosmetic enhancement.
Veneers are a good option if the patient’s teeth are strong enough to support them. The process involves removing a slim enamel layer from the existing teeth to ensure veneers don’t disrupt the smile line. The dentist takes a mold before applying temporary veneers that last until they can bond the final versions to the teeth.
Why Veneers Are Important
Veneers are an effective cosmetic step that can also shield your mouth against some common complaints and risks, such as:
Small spaces between teeth provide sticking places for tiny amounts of food and plaque. These can cause bacterial growth and lead to bad breath, irritated gums, or cavities.
Diet, smoking, aging, or medications can all lead to discolored teeth. Often this is only an external issue, but it can affect personal confidence.
Chipped or Cracked Teeth
These can expose a tooth to decay or leave underlying nerves open to infection. Cracks and chips can easily widen, pose a cutting risk to the tongue and cheeks, and make eating or drinking painfully sensitive.
The Dental Team can examine your teeth for any issues that might call for veneers, or any reason they might not be an option. Contact our staff for reliable advice.
Veneers can be a quicker and less labor-intensive process than many other dental procedures. Our team can help by providing:
Porcelain or Resin Veneers
These are not permanent solutions but can be a long-lasting option when treated with the proper care, such as brushing, flossing, and avoiding chewing hard objects.
Color and Shape Correction
Veneers are designed to match your natural tooth color as closely as possible and cover up any discoloration for a brighter smile. They can also bring teeth into a more uniform shape.
Closing Tooth Gaps
Veneers can provide coverage for tiny gaps around your teeth and prevent food particles and plaque from becoming trapped or building up. Closing gaps can also help align your bite.
Covering Cracked or Chipped Teeth
Adding veneers delivers a new layer of strength to better protect the exterior and interior of compromised teeth.
The number of veneers required varies. Speak with The Dental Team for more details.
