Veneers

Most people occasionally grind their teeth without harm or dental complications. Teeth grinding, also known, as Bruxism is the continuous habit of grinding or clenching teeth, which can wear down the tooth enamel and cause dental problems.

Dentists use dental veneers for a number of reasons including:

-They can be used to cover problem teeth

 – Veneers are often used to cover discolored teeth

 – Some people use veneers to close gaps between teeth

 – You can use veneers to restore broken or chipped teeth

Dental veneers can help improve the look of your smile by taking care of teeth that happen to be irregularly shaped, misaligned, or uneven.

There are two different materials that are often used to create dental veneers – composite resin and porcelain. They both have their own advantages and disadvantages. The choice may depend on your specific goals and how much you are willing to spend on veneers.

The composite resin material is thinner than porcelain and may be a suitable option for minor restorative work.

After the veneer is attached to the tooth, the dentist will bond and shape the material. This is done to match the material to your teeth.

Composite resin veneers are more affordable, but they may not last as long. Typically, composite resin veneers will last 4 to 8 years. They also require more attention to oral hygiene and proper care. This is because the material is more likely to chip.

 

Another material that is often used for veneers is porcelain. The porcelain material costs more than the composite resin, but it is more durable. Your porcelain veneers may last up to 20 or 25 years. During this time, they will probably not require any specific maintenance or special care.

For porcelain veneers, an impression will need to be made of your teeth. This impression is then shipped to a lab, where technicians will create the final set of veneers.

After the veneers are made, you will return to the dentist to have the veneers attached. Your dentist examines the veneers to ensure that they are a perfect fit. He or she will then attempt to match the colour of your existing teeth.

Dental Veneer Alternatives

If you do not think that dental veneers are your best option, you may consider bonding or dental crowns. Bonding can help shape teeth. Crowns can help repair major issues, such as cracked or chipped teeth. Compared to these options, veneers provide an immediate solution. Less work is involved, so that you can restore your smile as soon as possible.

Dental veneers provide a great solution for improving the condition and appearance of your teeth. You can learn more about dental veneers by scheduling an appointment with your local dentist.
