Dental Veneers: Are They the Right Choice for You?
Could dental veneers be perfect for you? Let’s look at this unique form of cosmetic dentistry to see if it could enhance your smile…
What are “Veneers?”
Before we dive into the details of dental veneers, let’s take the time to fully understand what they are and what they do. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) defines porcelain veneers as “thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.”
Veneers professionally applied are virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth. Most lay persons would have a difficult time telling natural teeth from dental veneers.
Reasons to Choose Veneers?
There are many reasons why you may choose to have veneers. Let’s explore a few of the most common motivations for having dental veneers:
Misalignment and Gaps: Patients who have teeth with small gaps of minor to major misalignment may be able to straighten their teeth with dental veneers.
Cracks, Worn Teeth and Chips: Veneers can many times repair teeth and at the same time be more conservative than full crowns.
Discoloration: Deep discoloration that can’t be removed with whitening procedures, can many times be effectively masked with veneers.
Improving Function and “Bite”: Porcelain veneers are many times used to correct deficiencies in function, therefore restoring a more stable bite.
Are Veneers Right for Me?
Choosing to get veneers is a personal choice that should be discussed one-on-one with your dentist.
