Veneers - veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on front of the tooth to improve the appearance of teeth that
are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are as thin as contact lenses and are an aesthetically
pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural.
Veneers are intended to last many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic
procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
Nothing builds confidence like a beautiful, healthy smile.
If you have conditions that keep you from wanting to show off a bright smile, cosmetic dental procedures such as veneers
can help restore confidence and create a radiant smile.
An Overview of Veneers
Veneers are custom shells bonded to the outside of your teeth that can improve the appearance of misshapen, discolored, or damaged teeth.
They come in b, which have advantages and disadvantages that should be discussed with a dental surgeon in advance of the procedure. Porcelain veneers
are thicker and more stain-resistant
than resin, but because they are thicker, they require the removal of more tooth surface in order to look natural. Resin veneers
do not reflect light quite as naturally as porcelain, but require less removal of your natural tooth enamel.
At Esquire Dental Centres, we recommend veneers for patients
- Discolored teeth as a result of prior dental work (such as root canals) or stains from medication, excessive fluoride, or other reasons
- Worn down, chipped, or broken teeth
- Teeth that are out of alignment
- Significant gaps between teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
The Advantages of Veneers
If you have chipped, broken, worn down, misshapen, or discolored teeth,
it can be harder to show off your smile, but veneers can provide the same natural appearance as your other teeth,
and restore a healthy white color to them. In addition, this minimally invasive procedure
is often friendly to your gum tissue, making it easier to avoid gum disease in the future.
This option is often an intermediate procedure
for patients who want a stronger, more permanent solution than bonding, but do not want to go as far as getting crowns. Keep in mind that veneers are not a substitute for good oral hygiene, and patients must continue to care for teeth and gums even after getting veneers.
