Explaining Dental Veneers
Sometimes known as dental porcelain laminates, veneers are thin and personalized shells that are meant to cover the front surface of teeth. They are tooth-colored therefore providing a treatment solution that is not easily noticeable unless under close inspection. Veneers are bonded to your tooth's surface and in the process change the length, size, shape, or color of your teeth.
What Are the Types of Dental Veneers Available to Patients?
There are generally two types of dental veneers that you can receive in our practice including porcelain and resin composite veneers. Porcelain dental veneers can resist stains much better than resin composite veneers, and also resemble the appearance of your natural teeth. You will need to consult with our dentists to choose the best type of veneers for your teeth.
Natural Tooth Appearance
Dental veneers will offer you benefits that will keep your teeth beautiful. They have a natural tooth appearance and are ideal when you want to maintain a natural look. Dental veneers are placed on the teeth for aesthetic value. They offer a patient a chance to have teeth that look natural, boosting confidence.
Dental veneers are made of porcelain materials, which are known to be good for the mouth. The material does not produce any allergic reaction. The gums tolerate the veneers well and they offer a chance for you to have beautiful teeth that are comfortable. Porcelain material also has a natural tooth appearance. The material is resistant to stains and will not stain when you consume foods like red wine, tomatoes, and even coffee. This offers a chance for you to eat and drink foods of your choosing without any many worries.
Routine Oral Hygiene
When you have veneers you will be able to observe your regular oral hygiene routine. This means that you can brush and floss your teeth like always.
Veneers are strong, and compared to crowns do not require much shaping. The veneers require that a thin piece of the enamel is shaped to accommodate them.
