Is there a downside to dental veneers? It's important to know that the procedure is irreversible. This involves removing a small amount of enamel from the front surfaces of your teeth so that the new veneers can be bonded in place. Once your natural tooth enamel has been removed, it cannot be replaced. Before you decide, Dr. Samani will discuss all possible options and what would be best for your aesthetic needs.
Wear and Tear:
Crooked or Uneven Teeth
Staining or Discoloration:
Chipped or Broken Teeth
One of the most common reasons people opt for dental veneers is to improve the aesthetics of their smile. Veneers may give you a confidence boost if you are self-conscious about your teeth. Let's talk more about the benefits of this cosmetic treatment.
They are durable and can last many years with proper care
Once bonded to your teeth, they become strong and resist staining and wear and tear better than natural teeth. You can enjoy your beautiful smile for a long time without worrying about losing its luster.
Veneers are much less invasive than crowns or fillings
Only a small amount of enamel is removed from your natural tooth to make room for the veneer itself, making it a quick and relatively painless solution compared to other options.
Veneers can correct multiple tooth problems in one procedure
They can be custom-made to address each of your concerns.
Dental Veneers are also a good option for people who have sensitive teeth
You may develop tooth sensitivity due to wear and tear on the tooth's enamel. When the enamel wears down, it exposes the dentin, the sensitive layer of the tooth. Your dentist may recommend veneers to cover the exposed dentin and protect your teeth from further wear and tear.
Veneers can be made in any shade of white that you want
Porcelain veneers can be matched to your natural tooth color, so you can get the exact look that you are going for. And because they resist staining better than natural teeth, your smile will stay brighter for longer.
Dentists use different types of materials for dental veneers. Dr. Samani uses porcelain because they are superior to other materials, such as composite resin. They are more durable, resistant to staining, and provide a more natural look and feel than other materials.
Veneers are usually made from porcelain because they look like natural tooth enamel in terms of color and translucency. They mimic the light-reflecting properties of your tooth's enamel, giving you a beautiful, realistic smile. Porcelain veneers are also strong and durable, making them ideal for correcting cosmetic dental concerns. These tooth-colored porcelain veneers can withstand heat, cold, and pressure like regular teeth. However, they are also more expensive than other types of veneers.
