What are Veneer Dentals?
In a nutshell, veneer dentals are thin shells attached to the front of the teeth. They can be likened to of clip-on nails, but permanent.
They look like natural teeth, too. Veneers are narrow at the base, where the tooth meets the gums, and wide at the biting end of the tooth. They are mostly tailor-made to match the shape, color, and contour of your teeth. The most common veneer materials include resin and porcelain, which blends in really well with the rest of the teeth.
While wafer-thin, veneer dentals are tough and long-lasting. As long as you don’t put them through unnecessary stress or strain, you should be able to enjoy its benefits for a long time. Always consult with your dentist first on what’s most appropriate to ensure effectiveness.
What are the Advantages of Veneer Dentals?
Apart from making your teeth look natural and healthy, there are many ways that getting a veneer will benefit you. Veneer dentals provide a solution to issues such as:
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Gap in between teeth, especially the upper front teeth
- Discolored teeth that can’t be corrected by teeth whitening techniques alone
More than these, getting veneer dentals are more affordable than other restoration procedures. For example, veneers are more conservative and cost-effective than direct fillings and dental crowns.
