Veneers and Their Benefits
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or that are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Compared to crowns, porcelain veneers will have your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneers.
The veneers treatment is a very successful option in many situations where a patient’s original tooth has developed poor color, shape, and contours. It is also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth, and in minor bite-related problems. There are some patients whose teeth have superficial stains that do not respond well to tooth whitening or bleaching, and in these situations getting porcelain veneers may be the best option.
Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is almost impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Compared to natural teeth, custom-made veneers have resistance to coffee and tea stains, and even cigarette smoke because veneers are made of high-tech materials.
If your teeth are resistant to whitening, veneers are perfect since they can make even the darkest teeth appear bright white. We recommend veneers to quickly fix minor twists, overlaps, and small gaps in your teeth – reasons that may be a hindrance to you having an attractive smile.
