Dental Veneers Will Leave You with a Flawlessly Beautiful Smile
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are clear, thin coverings that are bonded to the tooth, typically covering the front and top. Veneers can help close gaps in your smile, lengthen or reshape teeth, whiten stains and prevent further chipping or wear to the original tooth. They are either made from composite resin or porcelain.
Composite Resin Veneers
This type of veneer typically lasts around 3-5 years. It is important to note that these veneers are more porous than the porcelain type, meaning they are more prone to staining and chipping over the years. Composite veneers will require regular polishing to ensure they remain in good condition. Additionally, if you require veneers on many teeth, it becomes harder to control the shape, color and size of them. This is why porcelain veneers are usually favored for larger restorations. They may cost a little more, but they are a much better option for most people who want a beautiful smile without the hassle of return visits to correct damage to the veneers.
These veneers are crafted from thin slices of porcelain, with the end result being a very life-like product, closely mimicking that of a real tooth. They are far more stain-resistant than composite veneers and last much longer, with the veneers being cemented to the outside of the tooth. Porcelain veneers reflect light like a natural tooth does, allowing them to blend effortlessly and giving you a beautiful, natural looking smile.
Both types of veneers can help to correct your smile if your teeth are have gaps, are chipped, uneven, overcrowded, broken, decayed or discolored. While there are clear pros and cons to both types, it truly is up to the individual and their consulting dentist as to which product would be best suited to their unique needs.
