Dental veneers are a great solution which can fix a variety of minor problems with teeth, regarding both looks and health. Porcelain veneers are possibly the best way to fix most problems with generally healthy natural teeth, and once attached, can last for 5-8 years and often beyond.
A single veneer solves multiple problems with the targeted tooth at once, and the procedure is very quick and painless. If properly and carefully attached, the veneer will perfectly bond to the tooth and will be able to sustain the same pressure a fully healthy, normal tooth does.
Yes, there’s teeth bleaching, but if your habits are detrimental for colour of your teeth – that includes smoking, drinking too much coffee or ingesting some other foods that can change the colour of your teeth– or if you have a genetic predisposition for discoloured teeth, it will be of no use, or the effect of bleaching won’t last long. Dental veneers solve this the easiest way – by covering the discolouration completely. Porcelain is highly stain-resistant, certainly more stain-resistant than natural tooth enamel, so you should pay attention to have your adjacent teeth with no veneers on them, that can get stains and become a bit darker than surrounding veneers.
Tooth chipping may occur for various reasons – the food you eat, worn out fillings, trauma, or any other mean of acute or long-lasting pressure to the top or a side of a tooth. A veneer can be made to fully repair the areas where your natural tooth enamel is missing.
Veneers can cover for some minor misalignment of some teeth. Though they are not as effective as braces or retainers, some minor improvements are still possible. If you have just a single tooth that is misaligned and is jumping off the set of straight teeth, a veneer will be an ideal solution.
A dental veneer can hide all these tiny imperfections and act as a protective shield that will slow down further deterioration of your dental enamel.
Teeth with gaps between them
This is a very complicated thing, since it’s in one’s genes and no amount of oral discipline can be of much help. This requires special and often expensive dental retainers. In such conditions, veneers can act as a fast solution to fill in these gaps. The fact that veneers are cheaper and more effective in solving the problem of having gaps makes this option the most common choice among patients.
