Over the past decade, dental veneers have gained in popularity, with many striving for white and straight teeth. Recent reports indicate that veneers are currently the most requested cosmetic dental procedure.
Veneers are custom-made shells, usually made of a composite ceramic or plastic material that the dentist attaches to the patient’s natural tooth surface with plastic cement. In some cases, the dentist will remove a few of the teeth to make room for the veneer to be glued.
Many have chosen dental veneers to bring the sought-after smiles in Hollywood from celebrities like Chrissy Teigen to everyday ones. However, this wish is not new, when cosmetic dentist Charles Pincus first created veneers in 1928. Dental experts significantly improved the treatment and made it more permanent. But why is veneers the preferred method for perfecting a smile?
White teeth like jade
The brightness of the veneers doesn’t fade, so you won’t have to go through and pay for regular whitening procedures. You will also avoid the common sensitivity of bleaching bleach. Remember that you cannot change the color of veneer, so make sure you are satisfied with them.
Veneers also cover up any permanent discoloration caused by an injury that you are unable to whiten. If you only need a single patch, it will perfectly match the nuances of the teeth around you so no one will notice it.
On top of that, porcelain veneers are coated with a stain-resistant plastic, so unsightly stains can appear in a long time. However, composite resin veneers can cause minor stains and discoloration over time but are more affordable.
Churchfield Dental clinic offers both composite resin and porcelain dental veneers to fit different requirements and budgets.
Mark your teeth so that the veneers fit closely with them. Your dentist will give additional shapes if needed so that they match the shape of your face. Porcelain veneers also reproduce the natural teeth’s reflective properties so that they blend in with your smile.
Veneers can conceal any form of dental defects, such as cracked, chipped, and misaligned teeth that make you feel unsafe.
Although veneers do not rot, but because they are not porous, if properly maintained, they will prolong their service life, possibly up to 15 years.
You will need to take the same care of your veneers as you would your natural teeth by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day. Regular dental examinations and cleaning appointments will also prevent any problems from going unnoticed.
Avoid any unnecessary abrasion to your teeth, such as sharpening them, use them to cut Sellotape and chew the pen. If you participate in any contact sport wear a mouth guard.
Whether you take a veneer or a complete set, it will make a dramatic difference to your smile and confidence. However, before performing this procedure, do thorough research and consult your dentist for advice on whether it is right for you.
