What are dental veneers?
It is a thin shell-like, tooth-coloured, material that covers the front surface of the tooth. It is usually made from porcelain, though some veneers are made from resin composite materials as well. The advantage of the porcelain, over resin, is that it looks just like the natural tooth enamel.
The porcelain veneers come with various benefits in comparison to the traditional dental bonding such as crowns. The veneers provide you with the same capacity to alter the colour as well as the shape of a tooth like when you go for a dental crown.
Another benefit about the porcelain veneer is that it resists stains. Plus, it looks quite natural on your teeth thanks to its ability to match colours identical with that of the adjoining teeth.
When are Dental Veneers used?
Most patients considering Veneers are concerned about the shape of their teeth. With the veneers, you can lengthen the tooth so that all of your teeth look even as you smile. The veneer is also useful in widening to fill spaces and reduce gaps between teeth.
Tooth stains are a concern and problem that plagues many dental patients. Veneers can reduce or eliminate stains all together, especially those caused by medicines such as tetracycline. Veneers are also a common remedy for damaged teeth, and to recover trivial orthodontic issues.
Who can get Dental Veneers?
Unfortunately, one cannot simply opt in for a dental veneer; you need to be eligible for veneers which are determined by your dentist.
