What are Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made tooth-coloured shells that are bonded to the front surface of teeth. They are considered a cosmetic treatment, and mimic the appearance of natural teeth whilst improving their colour, shape, size or length.
Why get Veneers?
Dental veneers are popular for restoring the strength and appearance of teeth that may be:
- Poorly shaped
- Chipped or worn
- Cracked or broken
What are the types of Veneers?
There are two main types of dental veneers available: composite resin and porcelain. The best material for you to use for your veneers depends on your individual desires and budget.
What are the benefits of veneers?
Dental veneers are a popular choice due to their low maintenance and the need for relatively little changes to be made to the existing teeth. They generally require less removal of the tooth enamel than dental crowns, and good oral hygiene is the only maintenance required (unless chipping occurs) once they have been bonded to the teeth. Other benefits of veneers include:
- Improved self-esteem
- Enhanced self-confidence
- A lasting solution
- Low maintenance
- A natural looking smile
- Pain-free treatment
- Strengthened tooth structure
Are Veneers painful?
As with any dental treatment, there may be some discomfort during the procedure for porcelain veneers. You may experience some discomfort when the tooth enamel is removed, however the placement of both porcelain and composite veneers is typically pain-free.
Where Can I Get Veneers?
It’s important to visit an experienced and qualified dentist that provides a high-quality, reliable solution for your dental treatment. Poor quality veneers can often lead to costly maintenance and ongoing dentist visits, as well more noticeable and less natural veneers. By visiting Saratoga Dental you are assured quality.
