What are veneers?
Dental veneers are a cosmetic solution to correcting aesthetic flaws. They are made out of two materials - porcelain or resin. Ceramic shells are attached to the front of the tooth surface for a permanent aesthetic solution. Instasmile veneers clip over your existing teeth without any surgical procedures, which is why they are fast becoming a preferred option.
What are the types of veneers?
Porcelain and composite bonding are the most common veneer materials. Composite veneers are made of a resin that is shaped and bonded to a tooth to enhance the appearance. Porcelain veneers are usually made in a lab and are more resistant to staining, compared to other materials.
Should I choose composite bonding or porcelain veneers?
Ask your prosthodontist which option is best for you. If the needed changes are minor and the teeth function properly, cosmetic bonding is an appropriate choice. If teeth are spaced, broken, dark, and/or the patient clenches or grinds their teeth, then porcelain veneers may be the preferred option.
Why do I need dental veneers?
Dental veneers are a great solution for people with discolored, worn down, chipped, misaligned, spaced, uneven or irregularly shaped front teeth.
Can veneers replace a missing tooth?
If you’re looking to cover any missing teeth or natural gaps, porcelain veneers will not be the solution, as they require an existing tooth to be applied to.
What are the advantages of dental veneers?
The preparation of veneers preserve the most amount of tooth structure, as very little needs to be removed. They can improve the appearance of your teeth, and gum tissues respond well to dental veneers. The color can be custom selected, and in the case of porcelain veneers they are stain resistant.
