How Do Veneers Help Restore Teeth?

Unfortunately, having healthy teeth does not necessarily mean that they are aesthetically pleasing. Many people have issues with their teeth that affect their overall appearance. If you have problems with your smile, your dentist can offer a solution. The good news is that veneers can help restore teeth. 

Dramatically Enhanced Smile

Porcelain veneers are an effective dental solution for improving the appearance of damaged or discolored teeth. They are made from thin dental porcelain that looks like natural teeth. Veneers can cover teeth that are unsightly for one reason or another. They can improve the appearance of all the teeth, creating a new look with minimal work. Using dental veneers is one of the easiest ways to achieve a dramatically enhanced smile.

Restorative Dental Option

Porcelain veneers are considered one of the best treatments in the area of restorative aesthetic dentistry. Veneers allow dentists to rebuild and restore the smile using non-invasive techniques. The procedure helps provide the desired results while maintaining the integrity of the structure of the tooth. 

The thin shells are made from porcelain and are custom designed to fit over the patient’s teeth. The dentist will take measurements of the teeth to make sure that veneers are created to fit perfectly. 

Issues Corrected With Veneers

Porcelain veneers can correct several dental issues. They can restore teeth that are badly stained. They can also fix gaps between the teeth. Covering gaps and restoring slightly crooked teeth can improve the smile. Veneers resurface or fill teeth that are chipped, cracked, worn, or decayed. 

The porcelain shell helps resurface the damaged tooth. Tooth resurfacing can be used on a tooth previously treated using bonding. Other issues that can be corrected include overcrowding and the length and shape of teeth.

Natural-Looking Results

Veneers help provide natural-looking restoration results. If the restoration is required for one tooth, the dentists can match the veneer to look like the neighboring teeth. The veneers look life-like and are virtually indistinguishable from the natural teeth. 

They have a translucent quality that displays the shine and layered depth. The veneers are highly stain-resistant, and they are very durable. With good dental care, the restoration can last between 10 to 20 years. 

Choosing Dental Veneers

There are different types of veneers available, and you can choose the type that suits your budget and personality. The dental professional will help you determine the best veneers for your situation. 

The material is more durable and convenient than composite bonding. The restoration treatment has a high success rate with very low side effects. The patient can enjoy improved self-confidence, thanks to a flawless smile. 

Teeth may be quite resilient, but they can become damaged. A serious mouth injury can result in chipped teeth and other issues. Porcelain veneers can restore teeth, resulting in a more attractive smile.
