The Uses And Benefits of Dental Veneers

2013 June 26

Although dental veneers have been used for correcting dental defects for quite some time, they have evolved over the years and today are more effective than ever. Dental veneers are made from porcelain or ceramic and once they are attached to the tooth, they look exactly the same as natural teeth.

Dental veneers are used for straightening teeth and fixing chipped or broken teeth or even stained teeth. Once you visit a cosmetic dentist, they will examine your oral health and decide if you are suitable for dental veneers or not.

Before attaching a dental veneer, the front surface of your tooth will need to have a small amount of tooth structure removed. This is to allow some space to be created between the present setting of teeth where the dental veneer can be fixed. Sometimes this can result in mild sensitivity of the tooth.

Once the dental veneer is fixed, the tooth should settle down and the patient should not experience any pain. In many cases, porcelain dental veneers actually protect the tooth as they do not let foreign objects come in direct contact with the teeth.

Dental veneers are also used for addressing gaps between teeth. And if you are not suitable for laser teeth whitening, dental veneers can be used for this purpose too. Dental veneers are durable and are therefore an excellent investment if you are looking to improve your teeth.
