What Are Veneers?
Veneers are used for cosmetic purposes and placed on the teeth you see in the mirror when you smile. Veneers are only placed on the front surfaces of teeth. The process includes the removal of a very small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth in order to make space for your restorations. Then, your custom-made veneers will be placed and bonded.
What Can Veneers Do?
Veneers can be used to cover a variety of cosmetic flaws or imperfections including chips, cracks, discolorations, slightly shifted or rotated teeth, and gaps. They can also be used to lengthen or reshape your natural teeth.
Because veneers cover your natural teeth, they aren’t limited by developmental factors that affect your natural teeth. Teeth whitening can only get your teeth as white as they naturally are, and not everyone has teeth that are naturally bright. But with veneers, you can choose exactly how white you want your teeth to be. They can be subtly white, or brilliantly white, and they can be exactly the type of white you want.
Benefits of Veneers
Veneers are a great cosmetic dentistry procedure because they can do so much at the same time. It’s almost like getting new teeth–and it only takes a month or less. Compare that to Invisalign, which can take six months to a year or more to close a gap in your smile, and you see why many people opt for veneers in this situation.
Veneers are stain-resistant, natural-looking, and require no changes in oral care. Veneers have a smooth, glazed surface that sheds most stains, and they can maintain that coating for years, even decades.
Not only will they look natural and beautiful, but they will also perform just as well as your natural teeth.Many of the veneer materials we use are actually stronger than your natural teeth, so they’re unlikely to chip or crack.
With their strength and stain resistance, veneers can often last 10-20 years. That makes them a good investment in your beautiful smile.
Veneers used to be called “porcelain veneers” because they were made of porcelain in the 1930s. At that time, they were very fragile, and movie stars often only wore them when they were actually being filmed. Advances in porcelain strength made them so people could wear them all the time, and these days even more advanced materials are used. Some of these materials are so strong, they have been used in tank armor and bulletproof vests!
