You may wonder if veneers are right for you. We understand. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions that can help you decide if they are a good fit for you.
What are veneers?
Veneers are made of porcelain or composite resin and are custom-made to fit over your existing teeth. Once applied they will bond these tooth-shaped shells to your natural teeth.
They are an excellent solution for people who want to improve the appearance of their teeth. If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth, veneers can help give them some much-needed structure and elegance.
They improve common oral imperfections for teeth that are:
- Pointy or crooked
- Gapped or has spaces
What are the different types of veneers?
There are several options when it comes to your restorative oral care, such as:
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells made of porcelain. Dentists place them for people who have lost all or part of their teeth due to breakage. These durable covers give the illusion that you’ve got normal-looking teeth. They are strong, durable, and reflect light like enamel.
Also known as prep-less veneers, Lumineers® are different from traditional veneers. Porcelain veneers require a dentist to carefully shave away a layer of tooth enamel. He must also take impressions that laboratories then use to manufacture your permanent veneers.
Lumineers® don’t require any prep at all. They are less invasive, and dentists bond them to your teeth on the same day as your consultation. They are painless, quick, and convenient!
eMax® veneers are similar to porcelain. The process is different in that there are no overlay shells bonded on top of your teeth. Instead, the dentist must carefully brush each layer of the eMax® veneers onto the teeth. They’ll harden and cure, and the process will be repeated until you get the perfect smile you want.
Porcelain jackets that blend in with the natural tooth enamel and restore it to near-original condition if you have any damage or decay that affects your front teeth.
One of his popular techniques for restoring teeth includes using strong porcelain jackets. They’re like regular dental bridges but without any metal parts involved!
The benefit? These beautiful pieces can be made like crowns and restore your tooth to its original size, strength, and appearance.
What type of veneers are right for me?
The best type of veneers for you depends on the results you want to achieve. Your dentist will discuss with you the costs and the history of your oral health to determine which options will best suit your needs.
Our team works with each patient individually to determine what type will provide long-term results for their desired look while remaining affordable!
