There’s hope for your chipped, cracked, and discolored teeth. With the help of a cosmetic dentist in Jupiter, you won’t have to spend the rest of your life feeling self-conscious about your smile. Although cosmetic dentistry offers a wide range of options to give your smile a make-over, dental veneers are among the best ones.
For this reason, more and more patients have decided to conceal their dental imperfections by having these wafer-thin, medical-grade, tooth-colored shells securely attached to the front surfaces of their teeth. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of dental veneers.
Cosmetic dental issues that show each time you smile or talk can be easily fixed using dental veneers. It doesn’t matter if your teeth have slight gaps between them or if they’re severely discolored, misshapen, cracked, or chipped. Your dentist will simply cement the custom-made dental veneers that seamlessly match the color of your natural teeth while reflecting light in much the same way as your existing teeth do.
Unlike other restoration options, the placement of dental veneers requires a less invasive process that involves removing only about ½ mm of the affected tooth’s enamel. If you were getting a crown or a bridge, more enamel would have to be shaved down because both restorations have to be fitted over the tooth in question. What’s more, you may need little or no anesthesia as your dentist cements each veneer into place.
With dental veneers, no special care is required. You’ll only have to care for them as you care for your natural teeth. In other words, you’ll only have to brush them at least twice a day, floss once daily, and schedule regular checkups with your dentist.
You’ll be glad to know that veneers are known to resist staining and decay better than natural teeth. Unlike your porous enamel that’s vulnerable to decay and discoloration, these non-porous dental restorations can last between 10 to 15 years with proper care and maintenance.
