Our smile is one of the first things most people notice, so it makes sense that a lot of us want to have a beautiful, Hollywood smile. But, what if you have a minor defect that's affecting your appearance and self-confidence, such as a chipped tooth or a gap between your teeth? How can you fix that?
If you need a minor treatment to improve your smile, then you might be a good candidate for dental veneers.
What are veneers, how do they work, and why should you consider them?
Here's everything you need to know.
A veneer is a foil of thin material that is attached to the surface of the teeth. It's customized for each person and will cover the entire surface of the teeth.
Veneers are usually made of porcelain or ceramic and are permanently glued to the teeth with a special adhesive.
Not only veneers can help improve your smile, but they boast other benefits too.
If you want to hide certain tooth defects, such as stains, chips, or cracks, veneers are an ideal option due to their natural teeth appearance.
Moreover, as mentioned before, veneers can be customized and created so that they extend beyond the tooth they cover, making them a beautification option often chosen by those with small natural teeth or teeth that have worn out over time.
With age, natural teeth become worn out and are no longer able to support the surrounding tissue as they used to. Because of this, there is a possibility that the skin around the mouth will develop wrinkles and look older than it is.
Veneers can stop this process as they can support the teeth and stop the skin around the mouth from sagging.
When it comes to the perfect smile, the biggest obstacle is stained teeth. But with veneers, you will get an immaculate white shell on the entire surface of the tooth.
Also, when you opt for veneers, you no longer have to worry about going to the dentist to perform teeth whitening constantly.
Some more serious misaligned bites may indeed need braces, but when it comes to some small misplacements, veneers are enough to hide them perfectly.
Once you have decided to put on your veneers, there is no going back, because they can no longer be removed. That's why you need to be sure that this option is right for you because you can't go to your natural teeth anymore.
If properly maintained, veneers should last at least a decade before needing to be replaced with new ones.
