Why choose dental veneers?
When asking this question, there are many factors our patients have to take into consideration. The first is that there are a number of solutions available, so you will have to consider all your options. Important questions like, how long you want the treatment itself to continue, what level of correction you will need and what the best option is for that, and if you are concerned about the longevity of the solution. Many of our patients have found that dental veneers fit the bill for all of these criteria. In addition, dental veneers tend to be less expensive than a number of other solutions available, and they can be a one-stop solution for multiple problems. Veneers are able to help if you have cracked teeth, chipped teeth, or any number of other kinds of minor damage. Another popular use for dental veneers is when traditional teeth whitening solutions are not getting the job done; they can be used to give you whiter teeth. Dental veneers are also known as porcelain veneers because they are made of extremely fine porcelain and placed over the enamel of the teeth. One thing to remember is that dental veneers are a permanent solution because when we place them, we have to shave away a portion of the enamel and then attach the veneers with dental cement. This is important because, as you are looking at solutions, you should be able to compare this with some of the more temporary solutions or ones not as permanently attached.
What makes porcelain so perfect for dental veneers?
There are numerous things we look for when we search for the perfect material to make dental prosthetics of any kind. Over the course of many years, several materials have made the transition from being a purely engineering product to being something we can use in the dental field. Dental veneer experts found that porcelain is one of the best materials for making veneers. This is because it meets three very important criteria: aesthetics, biocompatibility, and insolubility. Each of these plays an important role in how the dental veneers will interact with the mouth and how they will look.
Aesthetics: Porcelain looks and feels like natural enamel when it is placed over the teeth in the form of dental veneers. We are able to make the porcelain match the color of the teeth around the ones we place veneers on, so even you will have a hard time telling which teeth have been repaired.
