What Are Veneers?
Several types of dental work can be confusing for a patient to figure out which dental treatment he or she needs. Most patients are known to settle for a budget-friendly dental treatment method without considering if it is the most appropriate one. Dental veneers are among the most popular dental treatment options available.
At Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry we have a knowledgeable and dedicated dental team who will examine the patient before recommending the best dental treatment option. Our dentists are well-versed in dental veneers, and you can count on them for efficient and flawless veneer procedures.
Veneer refers to a custom-made, thin, tooth-colored material designed to cover the front teeth surface, improving their appearance. Veneers also help in extra strength and resilience equal to the natural tooth's enamel. Veneers are accurately customized to match the size and shape of your teeth. Our dentists will help bond the veneer to the tooth's original enamel. Dental veneers are mostly made from resin composite materials or porcelain.
Veneers vs. Dental Crowns
Dental veneers cover the tooth's front-facing surface, while a dental crown replaces the entire tooth's biting surface. Veneers have to be applied to the natural tooth. Crowns cover the damaged part of a tooth, and can be used on implants acting in place of the missing natural tooth. Dental veneers are specifically meant for the front-facing teeth, with dental crowns meant for molars and premolars. The cost of dental veneers is lower, making it an excellent option. Dental crowns cost the most and are not suitable for those with a limited budget.
Although dental veneers and crowns can be made from similar materials, more materials can be used for dental crowns due to the high force they are subjected to when chewing. Veneers serve a cosmetic role, while dental crowns are used in treatment.
What Problems Can Veneers Correct?
Dental veneers are used in correcting the unappealing slight cosmetic features in your mouth and smile. They also help correct any broken teeth, close a large gap between the teeth, correct any weakened teeth, and realign out-of-position teeth. With the help of our skillful dentists, you can be sure of having your lost smile back, together with your tooth functionality.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Veneers?
People can opt for dental veneers if they want to improve their smile and appearance. If you have misshapen teeth, broken or chipped teeth, extremely small teeth, or spaces between the teeth, then you are a candidate for dental veneers. Veneers are only an option for those free from gum and cavities disease. You must address any serious oral health problem before you undergo a dental veneer procedure.
