One of the most common issues with teeth involves staining and discoloration. There are also issues with chipped and broken teeth that can be a problem for your smile. Gaps in the teeth can also cause insecurities in your smile. The good news is that veneers are available to help with these problems.
What are veneers? Veneers are very thin custom made shells that cover the front of the teeth to improve their appearance. These veneers can change the coloring, size, length and shape of your teeth. They can be made from porcelain or a resin material. Their ability to improve your smile is absolutely amazing.
So, how do you know what material is best for you? The majority of dentists recommend porcelain veneers because they are more stain resistant than the resin veneers. Porcelain veneers also reflect light like regular teeth, so they are more natural looking. But, resin veneers are much thinner, so they require less removal of the teeth surfaces. However, the decision is really between you and your dentist in Plantation, FL.
Veneers can fix several problems with your teeth, including discoloration, chipped teeth, worn down teeth, irregularly shaped teeth, and even teeth with gaps. The veneers can help cover these problems and give you a perfect and healthy looking smile. The process involves removing approximately ½ a millimeter of enamel from the tooth and then make an impression. The castings made are usually sent off to a dental laboratory and created. When they come in, your dentist will have you come back in and start the process of fitting them and cementing them in place.
Advantages of veneers includes natural-looking teeth, great tolerance of the gums with the porcelain veneer in place, and your teeth can look whiter and are resistant to stains. Veneers can last upwards of 10 years and can be replaced if necessary. Consider veneers as a way to obtaining an aesthetically pleasing smile.
