Do you feel self-conscious when you smile? Do you avoid laughing out loud with your friends? Do you avoid showing your teeth when clicking your photos? If the answer to these questions is Yes, it means you need to work on your dental issue. If the reason behind your embarrassment is your chipped, misaligned, crooked, spaced, discolored, or misshapen teeth, then dental veneers may be the best choice for you.
There are many benefits of getting this procedure and making it one of the preferable cosmetic dental treatment options. Have a look at some of them.
They repair teeth cosmetically
The procedure involves a thin shell of porcelain or composite resin bonded to your tooth’s front surface. The custom-made material is used to give an attractive and natural-looking smile.
They offer a natural appearance
This type of dental restoration option may take one or more appointments, but it gives an incredibly natural look. The dentist takes an impression of the teeth in the first appointment and sends it to a lab to prepare the permanent veneers. These will match the color of the tooth.
Once these thin shells are prepared from the lab, they are placed over the teeth to create a natural-looking smile. Once they are done, you will be amazed to find the look and feel natural to you.
Getting them is a minimally invasive procedure
Getting this teeth restoration procedure means only half a millimeter of the front surface will be removed to treat the teeth. This removal is quite less as compared to the removal of the tooth surface for getting a crown. It means that getting these thin shells is a minimally invasive procedure. Also, it requires little or no anesthesia for getting this treatment. Once these shells are placed over your teeth, you can see the result immediately.
They are a quick cosmetic fix
If you are unhappy with the look of your teeth, dental veneers can be a game-changing procedure for you. These can be used to address various cosmetic issues, such as chipped, missing, gapped, misshapen, or discolored teeth. Some people opt for this cosmetic treatment option due to the painful and inconvenient braces.
They are durable and permanent
The thin shells made of porcelain are highly durable and permanent. They are highly capable of resisting decay and stains better than your real teeth. If you take care of your teeth properly, the result of this procedure can last for 10-15 years or even more.
They are easy to maintain
Having veneers means you need not give special care to them. Instead, they need to be maintained in the same way as you care for your natural teeth. For example, make sure to perform brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day. Also, don’t forget to schedule appointments for regular dental checkups so that you can enjoy white, shiny teeth for a lifetime.
They are permanent teeth whitening solution
A smile solution may not be a suitable option for many people. In that case, they are advised to undergo this teeth restoration treatment in which thin shells of their desired shade are placed in the front of their teeth. Also, these shells made of porcelain are resistant to stains. So, if you have a habit of smoking or drinking tea/coffee, this procedure can be the best choice for you.
Even though dental veneers can be a costly option than other cosmetic dental treatments, many patients feel it is worth the investment.
