People trust their dentists for the care of their teeth, mouth, and gums. The dentist is the one who helps them decide what special services or care they need- be it dental veneers, braces, implants, or something else. If you have been wondering if veneers are right for you, the local dental care experts at Comfort Care Family Dental can help you make the right decision! First, it is important to answer the question of what is a veneer? A dental veneer is a shell or layer of tooth-colored porcelain or composite that is placed over the facial surfaces of your teeth to correct worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, discoloration and chips or cracks.
Are Veneers Cosmetic or Practical?
Although dental veneers are one of the most common types of cosmetic dentistry because they create bright, attractive, shapely teeth, they do more than just offer an aesthetic aspect to dental care. They are also practical in that they help to protect the surface of damaged teeth and may eliminate the need for even more advanced care or treatments by guarding against further damages. Teeth also get a boost in durability, an improved appearance, and you can enjoy an easier procedure compared to crows or implants. Dental veneers provide a lot to our patients and our local dental care experts would be happy to discuss the benefits with you!
How Do Veneers Help?
No matter the reasons for having unattractive teeth, dental veneers can help and are most commonly used for issues such as:
Worn enamel: Even the healthiest people who take the best possible care of their teeth will eventually have enamel erosion issues to worry about. Daily wear and tear on the teeth wear down the protective enamel and this can lead to staining and damages. Certain food and drink and lifestyle choices will speed up the process.
Wear and tear: Teeth, like your skin, hair, bones, and every other part of your body will naturally wear down as you age. Aged teeth are weakened teeth and are more prone to chips, breaks, cracks, and other damages that will harm not just the individual tooth but them all- when one tooth is weakened or damaged it can impact the all! Dental veneers help guard teeth against this.
Genetics: Certain people genetically are more prone to issues with their teeth. Low bone density, body PH issues, illnesses and diseases and just the genetic makeup of their body can make it so they suffer more dental issues. These people can benefit from dental veneers and really should talk to their local dental care experts about it.
Uneven teeth: When teeth get uneven or misaligned, it can throw off the look and feel of the entire smile. Veneers help by correcting these placement and spacing issues and gives a more uniform and attractive look to the teeth. It also helps improve overall health by providing an even tooth service for chewing and talking.
