So, you are looking for a smile that goes beyond what you have ever imagined. One that takes away your gap, straightens your crooked teeth, and covers up that odd-shaped tooth that has always stood out. Yet, you don’t want braces.
How do you do it? With dental veneers.
Cosmetic dentistry offers many solutions for teeth that can boost confidence and increase one’s quality of life. But are dental veneers worth it? Let’s find out.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are made of different types of materials, including porcelain and composite resin. They are shells that are custom-designed to cover the front of your tooth only, leaving the back free and open.
These veneers are commonly suggested to help patients give certain teeth a makeover, such as those with:
- Wear and tear (especially resulting from bruxism)
- Discolorations or stains
You will have a consultation with your dentist to make sure that dental veneers will be a good fit for your situation and, if so, preparations will get underway. Of course, since the veneer is custom-made, be prepared to come back to have it bonded and placed another day.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
It is not a secret that dental veneers can be costly. And, since they are cosmetic procedures, they are not usually covered by dental insurance. Taking a look at the key benefits that they will bring will help you to weigh the cost.
Dental veneers are one of the most highly-sought cosmetic dental procedures because of the value they provide.
A natural appearance. Dental veneers look natural, just like a real tooth. Because they are customized just for you, they blend in beautifully with the surrounding teeth in shape, color, contour, size, and so forth.
Dental veneers are long-lasting and durable. While it will depend on the type of material you choose for your veneers, porcelain veneers have been known to last about 10 to 20 years. With exceptional care, they may even last longer.
They are easy to maintain. Dental veneers are very easy to maintain. They do not involve any extra care. You simply brush and floss as normal. You can even get your routine dental cleanings with a special polish. No lifestyle changes need to be made with this cosmetic dental procedure.
Dental veneers offer protection for your teeth. Dental veneers offer a layer of protection for your tooth, especially if it has any type of damage like a chip or crack. This outer porcelain layer can prevent the tooth from facing any additional damage.
Boost your confidence. There is no denying that when you have a beautiful smile, you feel good about yourself. Dental veneers can cover up imperfections, leaving you with a greater sense of confidence.
When you can feel comfortable with your teeth, then you know you have made the right choice.
