Dental veneers are coverings for your teeth. These custom fitting covers are permanently bonded over each tooth and are meant to both improve the look of the tooth and hide defects. They are beneficial when you are trying to create an even gum line. Most people enjoy a symmetrical smile, which can be attained by dental veneers. In addition to cosmetic benefits, dental veneers can protect your teeth that have been cracked or chipped.
The Truth Behind Dental Veneers
Some people have preconceived notions about dental veneers. Patients express concerns that the dental veneers will be obvious. Others assume they will not blend well with adjacent teeth. These statements summarize the common myth that dental veneers will not blend in with your smile. It is not true. Veneers are custom made according to your preferences. The color, shape, and thickness can be fabricated to match your teeth. The majority of the population will not notice you dental veneers. Instead, they will notice your striking smile.
Another myth is that dental veneers require a high maintenance regime. On the contrary, patients find that maintaining veneers requires the same brushing and flossing needed for their natural teeth. Dental veneers stay clean and look nice with minimal effort.
Another misunderstanding people have about dental veneers revolves around the preparation. Many people think you have to file down your natural teeth before you receive a veneer. That is false. Minimal reshaping is needed. Dental veneers easily fit over your natural teeth.
