Dental veneers are thin shells made from ceramic material. They are used in correcting almost all teeth appearance problems. Veneers create a beautiful smile by improving and restoring the look of the teeth. This is done by bonding the ceramic parts on the front surface of the tooth. Veneers are the best alternative in comparison to dental crowns. They are also best for restoring a healthy status of the teeth and are available for any patient, old or young. Benefits of dental veneers Gives a natural appearance The ceramic material used in making veneers is resistance to stains and imitates properties of the natural teeth. The veneers will match the color and characteristics of your natural teeth. By analyzing the color, shape and texture of the other existing teeth, your dentist will decide which veneers to use. They are made with material that is durable which cannot be subjected to decay or discoloration. Veneers will help the tooth maintain its healthy and natural look. Gum tissue tolerance of porcelain Dental veneers made of porcelain are the best choice because they do not react negatively with the gum tissue. In placing the veneers, there must be contact with the gum because it holds it in place. Veneers are placed permanently. They are manufactured to feel very natural when they are inside the mouth. Natural usage Another advantage of the veneers is their usage. They are used as natural teeth. They are brushed and flossed just the same as your natural teeth. The same care used for your natural teeth is expected for the veneers. They have no additional maintenance requirements. Cost and procedure In placing them, veneers only require a short procedure that can take about one and a half hours. This is done with two separate appointments that are very fast. The cost is relatively inexpensive compared to the long services they will offer the patient. Veneers can also strengthen a tooth with worn-out enamel. They are able to moderate the weakened condition, and minimize discomfort in sensitivity and pain. Veneers shape teeth and give the patient their best natural smile.
