Dental veneers are a less invasive solution that has been used for some time now to repair misshaped or flawed dentition. They provide a good option for those who want to improve their dental health without undergoing more invasive tooth extraction or dental restoration procedures. Dr. Nicacio specializes in these types of restorations and often employs them on the front teeth because they are highly durable, stable, and minimally invasive.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells made out of porcelain or resin that are adhered to the front of teeth. Veneers can cover a tooth’s entire surface or just a part of it. They’re bonded onto natural teeth using dental composite material, a glue-like substance used in dentistry. No one will be able to tell you have veneers once they’re placed on your teeth because no one has perfect teeth after all!
What are they for?
Dental veneers may help hide gaps between the natural teeth or they may be used to correct small flaws in the appearance of one’s teeth. It is important to note that veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry as they do not change the function of one’s teeth. Veneers are usually made out of porcelain or resin and covered by dental composite material that is custom-made with each patient in mind.
The pros of getting dental veneers are the following:
They are a way to prevent tooth wear or tooth decay.
They are very effective if you have a discolored, misshapen, or crooked tooth.
They can be used to improve the appearance of teeth after dental restoration or a dental injury.
Veneers can also be used to cover teeth that have excessive gaps.
