What Are The Benefits Of Custom Veneers?
There are more than a few benefits to dental veneers. With proper brushing and flossing, your veneers will last for a lifetime. They will lead to improved self-confidence for patients who sometimes hesitate to smile or laugh in mixed company. But there are other benefits, including:
- Veneers Are a Simple Solution: They do not take much time to adhere to your teeth, and they can resolve chipped, missing, and misshapen teeth and they can correct gaps between teeth and stains. They are painless and have an immediate impact. They are especially beneficial to those addressing gaps in their teeth. Braces are uncomfortable and take a long time to become effective.
- They Provide A Natural Appearance: We can custom-create your veneers so they match the color of your other teeth. Porcelain is a material that looks much like the enamel of natural teeth, so those who see you when you smile shouldn’t notice that you have had cosmetic dental work done!
- It Is A Minimally-Invasive Procedure: To install them, we remove one-half a millimeter of the tooth’s front surface – which is much less than if we were installing a crown. Then we use a special cement to adhere the veneer to the tooth. And that’s it!
- Porcelain Veneers Are Permanent: Veneers are permanent and resist decay and staining better than natural teeth. Not only are they a simple and direct fix to an array of cosmetic issues, but they also represent a long-term investment in your future!
- Maintaining Your Veneers Will Be Easy: You don’t have to perform any special tasks to maintain veneers. There are no special solutions or toothbrushes. All you have to do is maintain your normal brushing and flossing habits!
- The Procedure Doubles As Teeth Whitening: Because we can use veneers to take care of stained teeth, veneers double as a teeth whitening procedure. Many patients return time and again for teeth whitening, but you won’t have to return because veneers are permanent.
Porcelain Veneers Vs. Dental Crowns
Porcelain veneers and dental crowns are very similar and address many of the same issues. But there are significant differences, making one more viable than the other for many patients. For instance, veneers are incredibly thin and only cover the front and sides of a tooth. If you have damage to the top of your teeth, in addition to the front and side, you might want to consider a dental crown in addition to the veneer. But the primary difference has to do with how they function. If you have a stained or chipped tooth, then a veneer is perfect for you because it is a cosmetic fix. However, veneers do not provide stability or fix more significant structural issues. For that reason, they are more likely to work for patients with outstanding overall oral health. Crowns, on the other hand, double as cosmetic and functional solutions. They will hide blemishes while providing a more solid base for chewing and more.
