At Park Creek Dental Care, a veneer is a thin layer of porcelain covering a tooth's front to hide cosmetic imperfections. They are bonded to the front of the tooth using a strong adhesive and look completely natural in your smile. Dental veneers are versatile and can be used to fix several issues with your teeth. For example, if you have cracked or chipped teeth, misalignment issues, discoloration, or gaps between your teeth, you can get dental veneers to solve the problems. You can think of dental veneers as a smile makeover because they can give a host of cosmetic improvements at once. Additionally, getting dental veneers is completely non-invasive because they are applied to the surface of your teeth rather than requiring any alteration of the inner structure like crowns do.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of high-quality dental porcelain that are custom-crafted to fit over the front surface of the teeth. These veneers are highly durable and mimic the natural appearance of teeth. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, long-lasting, and can address various cosmetic concerns, including discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, and misshapen teeth. They require minimal tooth preparation and are considered a permanent cosmetic solution.
Composite resin veneers, also known as direct veneers or bonded veneers, are made from a tooth-colored composite resin material. Unlike porcelain veneers, which are fabricated in a dental laboratory and then bonded to the teeth, the dentist directly applies and shapes composite resin veneers on the teeth during the same dental visit. This procedure is typically less expensive and requires less tooth preparation than porcelain veneers. However, composite resin veneers may be less durable and more prone to staining and wear.
Veneers can effectively address teeth discoloration resistant to teeth whitening treatments. Whether the discoloration is due to genetics, aging, medication, or dental procedures, veneers can provide a brighter and more uniform appearance to the teeth.
Veneers can cover and restore the appearance of chipped or cracked teeth, giving them a more even and natural look. They can also help protect the damaged teeth from further deterioration.
Veneers can close small gaps between teeth without needing orthodontic treatment. By placing veneers on the adjacent teeth, the gaps can be visually eliminated, creating a more pleasant smile.
Veneers can alter the shape and size of teeth to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Whether the teeth are too small, too large, or have uneven contours, veneers can be customized to enhance their appearance and create a balanced smile.
Many individuals choose veneers to enhance their self-confidence and self-esteem. They feel more comfortable and confident in social and professional settings by achieving a more attractive smile.
