There are a few misapprehensions that alter the public’s perception of cosmetic dentistry services, like those of dental veneers. Dental veneers have the ability to create great smiles. Here are some facts to address these worries.
Veneers can be made to look natural
Veneers are normally installed to increase the appearance of a smile, creating a fuller and more natural look. Veneers can disguise issues, such as misaligned teeth, crooked teeth, discolored teeth, and more. During a consultation with a dentist, the patient will discuss the desired outcome and choose the shade and size of the veneers.
Veneers can improve a natural smile
Depending on the case, dental veneers require minimal removal of surface enamel, generally less than half a millimeter, in order to install veneers. While the removal of the enamel cannot be reversed, installing durable materials, such as porcelain and ceramic veneers, may actually help strengthen existing teeth for longer, healthier teeth lifespan.
Veneers have practical function
While mainly used for cosmetic and aesthetics purposes, veneers offer some practical solutions as well. Dental veneers can create a fuller mouth with fewer gaps for bacterium to hide. If left untreated, bacteria can create other problems, such as cavities, root canals, gingivitis, and even tooth loss, in severe cases. Veneers can even help correct a patient’s bite, improving the overall function of a patient’s mouth. To learn more about dental veneers, visit the American Dental Association’s website, HERE.
