How Veneers Can Offer a Solution to a Variety of Dental Issues

Posted on by admin in Blog

cosmetic dentistWhen people think of solutions for crooked or discolored teeth, traditional braces and in-office whitening procedures are probably the first things that come to mind. Did you know that there is another method used by cosmetic dentists that can fix both of these issues without metal wires and potent bleaching gels? Veneers are becoming a more popular treatment for people who want to achieve a straight and bright smile, with veneer solutions increasing in popularity by more than 250% in the last five years alone.

What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are a thin, tooth-colored material that is adhered to the front surface of the teeth. Veneers can enhance the look of teeth, improving their shape, alignment and color. Porcelain or resin composite are typically used to make veneers, though porcelain veneers are often more natural looking and resist stains better than resin veneers. Dental veneers typically last anywhere between five and 10 years, after which they need to be removed and replaced with new veneers.

Who Should Get Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers can fix a number of different issues that patients might have with their teeth. Veneers can provide a solution to teeth that are chipped, broken, uneven, discolored or have a noticeable space between them. Veneers offer an alternative solution to painful braces or costly teeth whitening procedures, but it is important to ask a dentist first if it is the best solution for your teeth.

What are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers have many benefits. First and foremost, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between real teeth and veneers since they are specifically designed for each individual patient. Veneers are also resistant to stains that affect natural teeth, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages while maintaining a bright, white smile. Since veneers fix several different issues, from discolored teeth to crooked teeth, they allow you to solve multiple problems with a single treatment.

Dental veneers are a great alternative to the traditional methods of fixing crooked, discolored teeth. As they become a more popular cosmetic dentistry technique, it is important to consider them as a viable dental solution for a number of different problems.
