Do you want to improve the appearance and function of your existing teeth with dental restorations? Dental veneers might be a good option for you. Our Etobicoke dentists have put together a list of five reasons why you should consider this option.
What are veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that are custom-made to fit the shape of your teeth. They are affixed to the fronts of your teeth to alter the appearance of your smile.
To begin, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth, which will be used to create your custom veneers. Following that, the veneers will be bonded to your natural teeth. Dental veneers imitate the natural translucency of your tooth enamel, giving them the appearance and feel of natural teeth.
Why should I consider getting dental veneers?
Here are our five reasons why we believe you should consider dental veneers.
1. Dental veneers can help to restore your smile – and protect your teeth.
Dental veneers can help you restore your smile's appearance and function. They can also protect the surface of your teeth from discolouration or damage, as well as mask stains that teeth whitening cannot remove.
2. Veneers can help resolve several dental issues.
Dental veneers can improve the colour and shape of your existing teeth, changing the appearance of your smile. They can be used to fix issues such as spacing, sizing, alignment, erosion, and chipping.
3. If cared for properly, dental veneers can last many years.
Porcelain veneers are more durable than composite resin veneers. They last about 15 years on average. They can, however, last 20 years or more depending on a few key factors such as how well they are cared for.
To ensure your veneers last as long as possible, you’ll need to maintain a rigorous oral hygiene routine at home, brushing at least twice a day for two minutes each time and flossing once daily.
4. Dental veneers are less intrusive than other restoration options.
Dental veneers are a less invasive alternative to dental crowns. They also don’t require as much reshaping of your teeth.
5. You can have veneers on several teeth.
You can have veneers placed on a single tooth or a group of teeth. If a tooth has become discoloured or misshapen as a result of an injury, you may only need one veneer. Some patients who want to improve the appearance of all of their teeth may opt for a more extensive procedure.
Bonus: Veneers are a cost-effective option.
Because of their cost-effectiveness, dental veneers are a popular dental restoration option. Veneers may be more cost-effective in the long run than other dental restoration options, depending on your dental issue and the type of veneers you choose.
Dental veneers are a fantastic option for some people who want to improve the appearance of their smile, but they aren't for everyone. The only way to find out if dental veneers are right for you is to schedule an appointment with your dentist.
