People who aren't satisfied with their smile because of discolorations, broken teeth, and other imperfections, Dental Veneers are a great option. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or resin that are the same color as natural teeth. These strips are bonded to the surfaces of your natural teeth. Dental veneers are designed to reshape, make teeth appear whiter, and cover various imperfections such as length, space, worn down, and broken teeth.
Once in place, they provide a permanent solution that covers flaws and protects the underlying tooth with a surface that looks exactly like natural teeth. Dental veneers are a popular option for covering up damaged or irregular teeth. At Edison C. Louie DDS, Inc., we offer dental veneers and other cosmetic and healthy dental solutions. The procedure requires at least three visits and is performed in our office.
Whom Can Dental Veneers Help?
There are a variety of situations in which veneers offer an immediate solution. Teeth that are yellow and stained from smoking, coffee, and other stains. If you want your teeth permanently whitened rather than needing regular appointments to have them whitened, veneers may be the option you're looking for. The veneers cover your stained teeth with a white facsimile. Veneers resist most stains, so there is no danger of the finish becoming discolored or needing whitening. Thus, your teeth remain permanently white.
Some people have imperfections in the spacing of their teeth. A "gap" between the teeth is a fairly common dental flaw. Alignment may be irregular, causing the teeth to appear crooked. The permanent solution of orthodontics takes a long time. For people who are content to cover the irregularities, veneers offer a good solution. Other conditions that benefit from veneers include teeth that have worn down over the years from wear or in some cases teeth-grinding at night. If your teeth or misshapen, uneven, or poorly aligned, veneers are a great option.
What Are The Cons Of Dental Veneers?
There are some cons of veneers which require careful consideration. They are a more expensive option for covering dental flaws than some other methods. To prepare your teeth for the veneers, we need to alter their structure by removing some enamel from them. Removing enamel may cause you to experience hot and cold sensitivity. This procedure is irreversible. While veneers cover the effects of worn teeth from grinding, people who grind their teeth aren't good candidates for the procedure. This is because their grinding action can damage the veneer surface. Since veneers are a permanent solution, all the pros and cons should be weighed carefully before undertaking it.
