Here’s what you should know about Veneers:
Veneers are very thin “coverings” that are bonded to the front of an individual’s teeth by a dentist, to cosmetically improve the the look of the teeth. In most cases, veneers are made from porcelain or similar materials.Given the fact that veneers are placed on the outside of the teeth, the application process is relatively painless. In most cases, anesthesia is not necessary at all.
Veneers vs Crowns
Crowns or caps can be thought of as casts for teeth in that they cover the entire tooth and are mainly used to help strengthen weak teeth. Like crowns, veneers can successfully hide discolored or oddly-shaped teeth and enhance a person’s smile, which can be a great confidence-booster. Compared to crowns, veneers can be applied relatively quickly. Although more time for application may be required for veneers based on the number of teeth an individual wants to have covered.
The majority of cosmetic dentists suggest that veneers have a “shelf-life” of 10-15 years. This approximate time frame will depend on a number of factors. For example, heavy coffee and tea drinkers or smokers may need replacements sooner than people who don’t smoke or drink beverages that stain the teeth. Also, people who like to eat ice cubes or use their teeth to bite their nails can significantly shorten the life of their veneers as a result.
