ALL BENEFITS OF VENEERS

Veneers are thin laminates or shells of tooth coloured material (which can be either porcelain or ceramic). They are “cemented” to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance.
Veneers are an important tool for the cosmetic dentist. A dentist may use one veneer to restore a single tooth that may have been fractured or discolored, or multiple teeth to create a “Hollywood” smile. Many people have small teeth resulting in spaces that may not be easily closed by orthodontics. Some people have worn away the edges of their teeth resulting in a prematurely aged appearance, while others may have malpositioned tooth/ teeth that appear crooked. Multiple veneers can close these spaces, lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear, fill the black triangles between teeth caused by gum recession, provide a uniform color, shape, and symmetry, and make the teeth appear straight. Dentists also recommend using thin porcelain veneers to strengthen worn teeth. It is also applied to yellow teeth that won’t whiten. Thin veneers are an effective option for aging patients with worn dentition. Veneers are used by Dentists to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.
