Veneers — Beyond White Teeth
You might associate porcelain veneers, a thin porcelain layer placed over your teeth, with adults seeking a beautifully white smile. While veneers do have the positive effect of making your teeth appear whiter, they also come with other benefits. Anyone who has their adult teeth can be excellent candidates for veneers.
Veneers can give people who have functional or cosmetic concerns about their teeth a new lease on life. Find out from Healthy Dental Expressions’, general dentist, Dr. Henry Suarez, DDS, uses porcelain veneers to improve your dental health and smile.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells made out of porcelain that cover the front side of your child’s teeth. Through a process of bonding the veneers to your teeth, the veneers perfectly fit the shape and size of your mouth and look and function like standard teeth.
Veneers come with various benefits. They strengthen the teeth they bond against, fix any imperfections you don’t like about their smile, and give your mouth an even, white coloration.
Who is a candidate for veneers?
Many adults, teenagers and older children with a full set of adult teeth are excellent candidates for dental veneers. If you have any of these tooth issues, porcelain veneers can improve the functioning and appearance of their teeth.
People with cracked, broken, or chipped teeth
So many adults and children end up with tooth cracks, chips, or even partially broken teeth. When this happens, the tooth is weakened, making it harder to chew and putting you at risk of losing the tooth down the road.
Porcelain veneers not only improve the appearance of these teeth, they also help them function better. Thanks to the strengthening properties of porcelain veneers, you will be able to properly chew without fear of the tooth breaking further.
People with crooked teeth or tooth gaps
In some cases, porcelain veneers are the best option for people whose adult teeth grow in crooked or with gaps between the teeth. Instead of spending years in orthodontic treatment, veneers immediately fix the cosmetic appearance of these teeth by covering the crooked tooth or gap.
People with discolored or stained teeth
If your teeth show stains or discoloration, porcelain veneers provide an even, white, permanent appearance that never diminishes. Veneers are an especially good solution for those whose discoloration can’t be fixed by other teeth whitening methods.
What’s involved in getting veneers?
Usually, you can get porcelain veneers after three visits to our offices at Healthy Dental Expressions. On the first visit, our doctors meet with you to determine if getting veneers is right for you. They listen to your goals, perform a full evaluation, and might also take X-rays or make impressions of your teeth.
