Dental veneers are thin artificial shells that are tooth-colored, precisely attached to your teeth’ surface so they can improve their appearance. These teeth are crafted from resin or porcelain materials that are bonded to your natural teeth.
Generally, veneers can manage various cosmetic concerns such as chipped, discolored, or broken teeth. The main advantage of these veneers is improving the appearance of your teeth, giving your teeth a brighter look.
When to use Dental Veneers?
Veneers are commonly used to fix some dental problems, which primarily include:
- Discolored teeth occur due to stains from chemicals such as tetracycline or other pharmaceutical drugs. It can also occur due to excessive fluoride and resin fillings. These veneers perfectly conceal the discolored teeth and help you have a brightly colored dental structure.
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Misaligned, uneven, and irregularly shaped teeth
- Close the irregular gaps between teeth
What are the Types of Veneers Available?
The most prevalent types of veneers available in the market include composite resin and porcelain veneer. Porcelain is the most effective in correcting issues such as color or the shape of your natural teeth. These porcelain veneers are durable and have an average lifespan of 10 to 20 years. The veneers cover the entire surface of the teeth. During the insertion process, the dentist will file the existing teeth so that the shell can perfectly fit on the teeth.
