Veneers are wafer-thin oral restorations placed on the teeth and bonded using dental adhesives. They are primarily used to make cosmetic changes to the teeth, such as restoring their contour, size, color and eliminating excessive gaps between adjacent teeth. They also hold cracked or worn out teeth intact and keep them from undergoing further damage.
Here are a few reasons why porcelain veneers are highly preferred and should be given serious thought:
Veneers are usually made from dental-grade ceramic - a material widely used to make dental restorations. It offers excellent resistance to wear and often lasts for a long time without any hassle. They have an excellent life expectancy - almost twice that of composite veneers.
Whiter teeth can give you a massive confidence boost, especially when you socialize with people. However, various external and internal factors can make the teeth appear dull and discolored. Dental-grade ceramic is highly resistant to staining as its surface does not contain minute pores that could trap the coloring particles. The restoration would remain as good as new for a long time without getting stained.
Biting into anything too hard, taking a hard blow to the mouth, etc., could crack or chip the teeth. If left untreated, the extent of damage to the teeth could worsen and lead to an extraction. But, when veneers are bonded to such teeth, they hold the teeth intact and prevent the crack from becoming more prominent. When it comes to restoring worn out teeth to their ideal contour and size, veneers are an excellent choice.
One may assume that getting dental restorations would burn a hole in the pocket. But this isn’t true at all. Veneers are quite simple restorations and can be completed in a very short span of time, making them one of the most affordable dental restorations.
Dental-grade ceramic is highly customizable in terms of color, texture, contour, and size. We will take digital scans and photographs of the adjoining teeth and use them as a reference for fabricating the veneers. Also, the scans provide precise measurements for deciding the contour of the veneer, allowing them to offer a perfect fit without altering your natural bite.
