Wondering Whether Dental Veneers Are the Right Treatment for You?

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are tooth coloured materials that are attached to the surfaces of teeth in order to enhance the overall aesthetics, including the alignment, shape and position of the teeth. There are mainly two types of veneers: porcelain and composite resin.

Dental Veneers are used in the following cases:

  • Teeth that are discoloured or stained
  • When there is gapping between the teeth
  • Poorly shaped teeth
  • Chipping or wearing of teeth
  • Cases of cracked or broken teeth

If you are facing the above-mentioned issues, dental veneers can be the perfect solution for you!

Why Dental Veneers?

  • Pain-free procedure

Dental Veneers are the least invasive procedures. They are relatively painless, which makes them a convenient treatment for most patients.

  • Improved strength of the teeth

Dental veneers not only improve the aesthetics but also solve other dental problems like misalignment, staining and cracking of teeth. If you have asymmetrical teeth or short teeth, dental veneers can help make your teeth more proportionate.

  • Long-lasting

It has been proven that dental veneers last for 10-25 years. They provide a long-term solution for maintaining oral functions, hygiene and aesthetics at the same time.

  • Needs less maintenance

Following the daily brushing and flossing routine will help you maintain the oral hygiene of your teeth, even after the veneers are placed.

How do Dental Veneers Work?

Teeth veneers cover your existing teeth with a thin layer of porcelain or composite material.

The application of Dental Veneers involves removing 0.3 – 0.5 millimetres off the surface of the tooth to preserve the nerves of the teeth and strengthen them. This is necessary to ensure that your veneers last a longer time, and no issues will be faced to replace them if necessary, in the future.

Every tooth does not need to be covered with a veneer, just the ones that are damaged and potentially the surrounding teeth.

Your dentist can advise you about the number of veneers that you need along with the best shape and the shade of veneers that match your natural teeth. You can get full veneers that cover the tooth completely, or partial veneers that only cover the stained and discoloured areas. Many people get the veneers on their front teeth, which are the most visible. Getting the veneers according to the recommendation of the dentist can help to get a seamless look.
