With so many Americans struggling with choosing which cosmetic dental procedure to choose, it’s no wonder people have turned to veneers to enhance their smiles. They are a simple procedure, and are being enjoyed by millions of people. Veneers, usually made of porcelain, can fix many of your dental concerns. They are classy in appearance, giving a more natural look than some other choices. Extremely thin and easily placed, veneers typically outlast most patients’ expectations. They are bonded to the visible surfaces of the teeth, replacing flawed enamel beautifully.
Veneers resist staining, however, it still recommended that an excess of certain foods and drinks be avoided. Red wine and cola are culprits to staining natural and false teeth. Veneers are an excellent choice for people who do not have a high sensitivity to hot or cold, and who do not have unhealthy teeth or gums. Your first visit will consist of a consultation and preparing the teeth for placement of the restorations. A thin layer of enamel must be removed to allow the veneers to fit properly. We then take a mold of the teeth you’d like to enhance. Next, the mold will be sent to a lab, and in about two weeks, the veneers, can be applied. Once you’ve decided on veneers, it is a permanent choice. The treatment is irreversible due to the reduction in tooth enamel. Veneers are not likely to be repairable if they become chipped, but they can be replaced. The average life can be anywhere from five to ten years with proper care.
If you aren’t sure if veneers are right for you, think about what you are trying to achieve with dental work. Your smile wants to be seen! With the use of veneers, you can enhance your smile to dazzling by eliminating imperfections. You can cover just one, or all visible teeth, if you’d like. Veneers can be shaded before they are placed to make sure your smile looks natural. Having veneers means you don’t have to hide a misshapen tooth or even a chipped or broken tooth.
