Veneers are a dental treatment that involves your dentist bonding special shells on the front part of your teeth to improve your dental look and smile. Veneers are made from various materials, including porcelain and resin composite. Your dentist customizes your veneers to match your natural teeth, making them less noticeable. Glendale veneers can treat many dental conditions, including broken, chipped, stained or uneven teeth. You can get one or several veneers, but most people get between six to eight veneers to form an even, symmetrical look. Most people apply veneers on the top front eight teeth to improve the smile. There are many benefits of veneers, and here are some.
They look and feel natural
During veneer placement, your dentist takes an impression of your teeth to help create veneers fit for your teeth. The dentist attaches the designed shells and sculpts them to create a seamless fit so they feel and look natural. People hardly notice you have any dental treatment. Also, veneers come in various shades, so your dentist customizes your trays to match your teeth, giving you a natural look and smile.
It is easy to take care of veneers
Veneers need little maintenance. You take care of them just like your natural teeth. Ensure you observe proper oral hygiene by brushing and flossing twice daily and get regular dental checkups and cleaning. During dental checkups, your dentist examines your veneers to ensure they fit appropriately and have no breakage or chipping. If there is any damage, your doctor will recommend replacement to ensure they are in good shape.
They are long-lasting
Veneers are made from strong materials like porcelain, making them durable. If you take care of your veneers, they can last ten years or more. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant, so they can shed discoloring foods and beverages for years if you observe good dental hygiene. Avoid biting hard objects like bottle caps and hard candies because they can chip or break your veneers.
Veneers address many dental issues within a short period
Veneers can treat many dental issues, including crooked, gapped, uneven, and discolored teeth. In other orthodontic treatments like braces to align your teeth, you have to schedule several appointments to adjust the braces. You need two dental appointments for veneers to improve your dental appearance. The first appointment involves creating your shells, while in the second visit, your dentist bonds the trays on your teeth.
Veneers require little enamel removal
Veneers are bonded to the front part of your teeth, so your dentist only eliminates enamel on that side. Enamel removal helps veneers bond properly to your teeth. For dental treatments like crowns and bridges, dentists have to remove more enamel to ensure they fit perfectly. If too much enamel is removed from your teeth, they may become sensitive. There is no risk of teeth sensitivity in veneers because minimal enamel is extracted.
