What are Veneers?

Veneers are a common solution for treating minor dental flaws in your teeth. They are very thin restorations that resemble small shells. These small shells are made from impressions of your mouth and are bonded to the front surfaces of your damaged teeth, effectively covering over the flaws and enhancing the beauty of your smile.

Veneers are made from one of two materials, composite or porcelain. While both materials are tooth-colored, porcelain is often the material of choice. This is because porcelain provides a much more realistic appearance. It is stronger than composite, and it is also stain resistant.

What Can Veneers Treat?

Veneers are effective for treating minor flaws in your teeth. These flaws include:
•  Small cracks or chips that only affect your enamel layer.
•  Minor alignment issues such as slight overlapping and small gaps between your teeth.
•  Misshapen or small teeth.
•  Discoloration. Veneers are often recommended if the teeth cannot be whitened.

What are the Benefits of Veneers?

There are numerous benefits associated with veneers. These include:
•  A natural appearance. Veneers look exactly like your real teeth and blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
•  Eliminating flaws in your teeth, effectively transforming your smile and enhancing its beauty.
•  Improving the quality of your smile helps to boost your confidence.
•  Biocompatibility. Both composite and porcelain veneers are biocompatible, meaning they will not irritate your gums.
•  Treating numerous issues.
•  More affordable, and less invasive, than crowns.

Am I a Candidate for Veneers?

Veneers are an excellent option for those who have teeth affected by minor dental flaws. They provide a stronger, longer-lasting solution to dental bonding and are less invasive than dental crowns. Veneers can treat many issues, but they are not always the right solution for everyone. There are a few factors that can impact your candidacy for dental implants.
•  You are unhappy with the appearance of your smile. If minor flaws are affecting the quality of your smile, and your confidence, dental veneers may be the best solution for you.
•  The flaws in your teeth are minor. Veneers are a cosmetic solution, not a restorative one. If your teeth are affected by more significant issues, a different treatment may be needed.
•  You do not have oral health issues like bruxism. Bruxism is the grinding and clenching of your teeth, and it can put excessive pressure on your teeth. This pressure can cause veneers to chip, fracture, or wear out more quickly.
•  You take good care of your mouth. Veneers can improve the quality of your smile, but brushing, flossing, and routine dental visits are still important.

Veneers are an effective treatment for improving the appearance of teeth affected by minor flaws, transforming your smile and boosting your confidence. For more information, and to find out if they are the right solution for you, call Dental Arts of Frederick today at 301-732-7277.
