Dental veneers are very thin shells of porcelain or resin material that are bonded over the front of your natural teeth to change the way that they look. From crowding to uneven teeth, veneers can be used for a variety of aesthetic situations, and results are amazing.
Veneers are applied directly to the tooth to create straighter, whiter teeth. They can also be used to close spaces, or repair chipped and damaged teeth.
When placed side by side, dental veneers have the potential to change the overall appearance of your entire smile.
When your teeth are relatively healthy but you’re looking to change something about their appearance, it is a good idea to see a cosmetic dentist. There are many ways that cosmetic dentists can help. If you have any missing teeth, for example, you may wish to learn more about the benefits of dental implants. In the case of misshapen, cracked, or chipped teeth, porcelain veneers are a viable solution.
Veneers are thin shells made from porcelain and are carefully molded to fit over a damaged tooth. In many cases, the damaged teeth are shaped down to fit the veneer but because of modern technology some veneers are thin enough to be placed on the tooth as-is. The veneers are bonded to the teeth for a permanent solution.
Porcelain veneers - before and after. Anyone who has damaged or misshapen teeth may benefit from the uniformity veneers offer. They help to reinforce teeth, close small gaps, and provide a uniform shape and size. On the other hand, people who have teeth that are severely crooked, crowded, or spaced far apart may benefit from other cosmetic dentistry services. Make sure to talk to your dentist about which options fit your needs.
Although veneers can be a permanent fix, you need to make sure they are cared for properly. Hard foods and candy could cause the thin shell to come loose from the natural tooth. It is also important to brush and floss your teeth twice a day and keep your regular checkups with your Diamond Bar dentist. By speaking with your dentist on a regular basis you can ensure your veneers are sitting on your teeth properly and don’t require maintenance.
