If you need a tooth restoration procedure that can improve the look of teeth, dental veneers, also sometimes referred to as porcelain veneers, and dental porcelain laminates, are custom colored shells designed to improve the performance and appearance of teeth by cementing materials directly onto the fronts of teeth.
It’s never too late to think about oral health care treatments to improve your smile. Even if you have only suffered slight damage to a tooth, a single oral ailment or abnormal tooth can severely disrupt your smile. Thus, a tooth restoration treatment may be needed to conceal or cover the offending tooth. Dental veneers are designed for these exact scenarios.
Furthermore, dental veneers are crafted for each individual tooth, so if need be, you can have an entire smile makeover with veneers in place. However, a minor amount of tooth enamel will need to be removed from each tooth in order for them to be cemented fully in place. Although, the amount of tooth enamel removed is less than what would be needed for a dental crown placement.
Dental veneers are extremely durable and can easily last up to a decade of continuous use if you are careful. If they need to be replaced, always visit your dentist and do not try to repair them yourselves. If you’re looking for a stain-resistant veneer, porcelain veneers can prove to be extremely effective. Dental veneers can even be used in situations when minor malocclusions or spacing issues exist.
