Why Dental Veneers Are Really Worth It

Veneers can have a variety of applications. Many dentists use them on teeth that need filling or on discolored teeth as a result of root canals. They are used to change the shape and size of the tooth to make it look more in line with the other ones in the row. So, if you have chipped or broken teeth you can consider getting veneers to make them look normal. Veneers are also used to fill the gaps between the teeth and make them look healthy in their place. Many people suffer from loss of confidence because of the way their teeth look. Veneers can help with most of the dental problems that may come your way.

How Are Veneers Made?

Thin pieces of porcelain are the common materials with which they make veneers. These pieces are molded into shapes that are perfect for your teeth. The molded pieces are attached onto the teeth and improve their appearance. Resin can also be used to make these veneers.

Types of Veneers

There are four different types of Dental Veneers. These include porcelain veneers, composite veneers, instant veneers and removable veneers. Porcelain veneers are considered the best as they last the longest, while composite veneers are made up of a slightly cheaper material that is not as strong as porcelain. These are used to deal with smaller problems like a chipped tooth. Unlike porcelain veneers, instant veneers are not custom made. These are premade and require just one appointment. They are cheap, but they do not sit perfectly on the tooth. Removable veneers are a short-term solution for broken or chipped teeth. These are custom made, but you can remove them whenever you like.

Pros and Cons of Veneers

Veneers give you confidence and allow you to smile without fear of judgment. They mount on your teeth in such a way that no one can tell you have them unless you tell them yourself. They don't even require special maintenance, and all you need to do is brush and floss like you usually do. They can make your teeth look bright if you want that look but you can also select a color that matches your teeth.

The only cons are that a veneer isn’t exactly your real tooth so you need to be careful about what you put in your mouth as they can chip away.  Moreover, they do not change color, so after a while, they might stand out. One thing that you need to be careful about is that the teeth can still decay underneath them. People who have a history of gum disease or weakened enamel should avoid getting veneers. In these cases, the doctor will probably let you know about other options to deal with broken teeth.

Why Are They Worth It?

No one is born with a perfect smile, not even the celebrities that you see on the television. More often than not the symmetrical smiles on the television are a product of hard work and maintenance at the dentist's office. Unless you have a history of certain diseases, there is no reason why you cannot get veneers to attain the perfect smile. As the problem with the color can go away with regular visits to the dentist, and you can always have them replaced if it breaks off.  

How can you really use this information?

Veneers are an easy solution to a big problem. They require little maintenance and can provide you with a lot of confidence.
