Veneers

Are teeth whitening services just not doing the trick anymore, or do crooked and broken teeth get in the way? Do you need something extra to give your smile the pop you’ve always imagined? You may be surprised by how much of a difference dental veneers can make in your life. Veneers do more than improve the appearance of chipped, cracked, misshapen, or stained teeth.

what are dental veneers?

Resin-composite or porcelain veneers are a possible solution to help people achieve the smile they desire. Dental veneers are a popular choice for people with teeth that are:

  • Chipped or worn down
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth
  • Discolored or stained
  • Separated by uneven gaps

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that get attached to the front surface of teeth. The main reason for this dental procedure is to improve the appearance of teeth and smiles. Some people may only get one veneer to cover a damaged tooth, but many get between six to eight veneers side by side to create an even and symmetrical smile. The top front eight teeth are the most commonly covered by dental veneers.

who can provide dental veneer services?

Many dental professionals offer veneer treatment, such as the following:

  • General dentists – These dentists help patients improve their oral health and appearance. Since dental veneers offer oral health and cosmetic benefits, general dentists often offer the treatment on top of regular checkups and dental cleanings.
  • Cosmetic dentists – The primary focus of cosmetic dentists is to improve the patient’s smile. Almost all dental professionals who practice as cosmetic dentists offer dental veneer services.
  • Orthodontists – These dental professionals rarely offer veneer services. They focus on improving the alignment of the teeth and jaw. While veneers can improve some cases of mild teeth misalignment, orthodontists will typically refer patients with this problem to cosmetic dentists or even general dentists.

The type of dental professional someone chooses to install veneers depends on their preferences and needs. One main factor is the reason they want to get dental veneers. If oral health concerns exist, a general dentist is likely the best professional to see. A cosmetic dentist may be a better option if the concern is purely cosmetic. For alignment concerns, visiting an orthodontist for veneers or another form of teeth straightening could be the most appropriate solution. 

when should you consider dental veneers?

You may have already heard this from your general dentist, but it’s worth repeating—your teeth and gums must be healthy before you get veneers. It’s essential to go to regular oral health checkups and get any oral disease or tooth decay issues treated before placing dental veneers on problematic teeth.

Dental veneers are not always a good choice, even if they make it easy to improve smiles. Patients who clench or grind their teeth may have issues because thin veneers may break or chip. In cases like this, your dentist may suggest you wear a plastic dental night guard while sleeping after you get dental veneers. This guard will also help dental veneers last as long as possible, as they can become loose over time.
