Things to Consider Before You Choose Dental Veneers

Share This Post

Dental veneers have grown increasingly popular because of their instant, sparkling visual appeal and also the simplicity with which they're applied.

Dental veneers previously had a bad reputation, primarily due to looking unnaturally bright and often too long compared to the surrounding teeth. As cosmetic dental treatments have progressed and improved, however, so too have veneers. You can find more via about dental veneers.

The materials used in making of Dental Veneers are either porcelain or resin composite. However Dentists and patients generally prefer a Porcelain Veneer because it has the ability to resist tooth stains better than resin composite. The other reason is that it gives the look and feel of natural teeth. Resin veneers are even thinner than porcelain veneers and they do not require substantial tooth removal.

Veneers are used to cover teeth which are worn, damaged, dulled or uneven beyond fixing. They may not be suitable in all circumstances, since the preparation for bonding the veneer to your natural teeth damages it for good. For that reason, it's not recommended for individuals who plan to bleach their teeth, go through orthodontic alignment treatments, or have existing cracks filled with special resin.

Another restriction in the use of veneers is when extensive damage to the existing teeth prevents good preparation. Veneers require a good bond between itself and the tooth, and therefore cannot be used on teeth which are terribly damaged or broken. In these cases, crowns are a more appropriate course of action.
