Cosmetic dentistry can work wonders to transform your smile; veneers form an integral part of it. Dental veneers are thin shells that fit over the fronts of your teeth. They function by concealing superficial flaws.

When do you need a veneer ?

  • Broken or chipped teeth.
  • Gaps in your teeth
  • Stained teeth – stubborn stains that are intrinsic and do not respond to teeth whitening.
  • Mildly crooked teeth
  • Small teeth

Types of veneer:

Composite veneers

Direct tooth bonding can also be used to quickly and affordably fill in small gaps and repair chips in teeth using composite materials that are tooth-colored. These are highly esthetic resins that adhere to teeth. They are a quick fix, but are comparatively less durable.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers can correct a variety of cosmetic flaws. Custom-made to fit your dental anatomy, the cosmetic dentist needs to shape the natural teeth in order to prepare them for the veneer. This makes the surfaces of your teeth rougher and aids in their retention.

No-prep veneers

No-prep or minimal-prep veneers, also known as Lumineers, are a less invasive alternative to conventional porcelain veneers. They require less enamel removal than traditional veneers.

Ask your dentist if you qualify for no-prep veneers; not everyone is a good candidate. They can make the teeth look bulkier.

Removable veneers

Removable veneers, also known as pop-on or snap-on veneers, are quick and simple to apply. Removable veneers can be removed at any time, just like retainers. Removable veneers are purely aesthetic. Since they are not attached, biting on hard crunchy food can dislodge them.

What benefits do dental veneers offer?

  • Veneers modify and rejuvenate your smile.
  • They are lifelike, and superbly color matched.
  • Veneers do not wear out and stain easily
  • Dental veneers require less natural tooth modifications
  • They can be removed easily by a dentist
  • They require minimal maintenance

What are the disadvantages of veneers?

  • Most veneers aren’t reversible.
  • Your teeth may become more sensitive in future
  • Foods as hard as sugarcane or corncobs are contraindicated with veneered front teeth
  • Dental veneers are entirely cosmetic, so rarely will dental insurance cover them.

How is a veneer different from a tooth crown?

In order to improve a tooth’s appearance, a porcelain veneer only covers the front surface of the tooth. In contrast, a dental crown covers the entire tooth in order to strengthen and protect it.

Dental veneers are a cosmetic procedure, so while they enhance your smile, they don’t always strengthen or restore your teeth.
