Thinking about veneers to quickly and painlessly brighten your smile?
If you live in the Coral Springs, Fl, area, and are seeking information about veneers consider contacting Listopad & Finder DDS, PA.
Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental option because veneers, for the appropriate patient, can be a quick, painless way to dramatically improve one’s smile.
Veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials made of porcelain or resin materials, which are permanently attached to the front of the patient’s teeth. Each veneer is custom designed to the individual’s specific needs.
The procedure is painless. The dentist removes a small portion of enamel from the front of each tooth then permanently bonds each veneer to each tooth.
The procedure usually requires much less alteration of existing natural teeth than other procedures, such as crowns. Veneers will last a long time – usually five to 10 years before they need to be replaced – and veneers require no special hygiene beyond the brushing and flossing one would normally do.
Veneers can be used to correct a variety of issues, including but not limited to minor shape problems, tooth discoloration, space/alignment problems, and chipped or damaged teeth.
There are issues to consider, however. For one, veneers are permanent – the procedure can’t be reversed — so the patient must be absolutely sure they want the procedure done. If a veneer is damaged it usually can’t be repaired; it must be replaced. Also, because the dentist removes a small portion of enamel, the tooth’s protective outer layer, teeth may become more sensitive to heat and cold. Finally, veneers are not usually the best choice for people who have unhealthy teeth or advanced gum disease or for those who already have lost significant enamel.
Veneers might not be the best choice for people who grind their teeth, especially those who grind their teeth as they sleep, unaware that they do so.
