Veneers and Cosmetic Dentists
One of the first questions people ask Cosmetic Dentists when considering veneers is whether the benefits outweigh the disadvantages. The first of these advantages is its naturalness. Thanks to its fully individualized manufacturing, these thin layers of porcelain fit perfectly with the patient’s teeth and fit seamlessly into your gums. This makes it virtually impossible to differentiate between a natural tooth and a veneer. Besides being customized in terms of shape, they are also manufactured with the desired tone. Thus, you get a color that is clear enough without losing naturalness. This is possible thanks to the translucent porcelain properties that are virtually identical to those of tooth enamel.
But its benefits are to imitate not only the characteristics of natural teeth, but in some cases beyond that. And, unlike your own teeth, dental veneers are resistant to stains and discoloration caused by coffee, red wine or tobacco. This means that you keep that radiant, white smile throughout life. Unlike dental crowns, veneers can correct many of the shortcomings of the teeth without substantially altering the other teeth. There are even some brands like Lumineers that can be placed without prior treatment, which means they are completely reversible.
The recovery is short too. Once you have the veneers in place, all you can notice is an increase in tooth sensitivity for a few days, but beyond that life is normal. There is no staining either. Unlike your other teeth, porcelain is resistant to coffee, tea, tobacco and the like. This is so it can maintain its aesthetic appearance throughout the years. Also gums naturally respond to porcelain and adapt to it perfectly, providing a natural aesthetic look.
Cosmetic Dentists say that veneers align the teeth and restore their function too. They can help strengthen broken teeth and restore its normal function. This makes them perfect when combined with other aesthetic restorative capabilities. They are customized too, meaning the shape, color and size of the veneers can be chosen to suit your other teeth and achieve the expected changes in your smile. Finally, it is important to note that the benefits of dental veneers go beyond aesthetics. These restorations can also be used to close spaces (diastema) between teeth, correct slight dental crowding and reform teeth that have undergone minor breakages.
