What are the Benefits of Veneers?

Veneers are known to be durable and require little-to-no change in the teeth structure, resulting to a natural-looking smile makeover that lasts long. Here are some of the benefits of dental veneers:

  • Natural appearance - For cosmetic treatments, the more natural-looking, the better. It is hardly noticeable that your teeth have undergone an aesthetic procedure when you’re wearing them.
  • Whiter teeth - If you have dark or yellowish colored teeth, especially those which are stubborn and resistant to whitening, veneers can make it appear whiter and brighter.
  • Good for your gums - Your gum tissues react well with the porcelain material used in veneers.
  • Resists stains - Porcelain veneers are generally resistant to stains from food and beverages which make it easy to maintain with good oral hygiene.

Are Veneers the Best Cosmetic Treatment For Me?

The best candidate for a porcelain veneer treatment is anyone who wishes to improve the appearance of his/her smile. If you shy away from the camera or don’t feel confident enough during social interactions because of how your teeth look like, veneers could be your best solution.

Veneers are also best for people who are frequently in the public scene or out of the office, meeting clients and stakeholders. Your personal appearance is your brand itself and you can instantly achieve that Hollywood smile and feel confident about yourself with a veneer smile makeover.

Our professional cosmetic dentists will assess your condition during your initial consultation and evaluate the possible treatment options for your case. Generally, veneers are among the most preferable options for both the dentist and the patient as the procedure is minimally invasive, and no tooth removal is required. Treatments, however, will always vary from one case to another.

For those with existing oral health conditions such as tooth decay or gum problems, your dentist will recommend you to address these problems first before going for cosmetic treatment.

What is the Procedure of Getting a Dental Veneer?

Step 1:Initial consultation: An initial consultation with our cosmetic dentist is needed to determine if veneers are the right treatment for you. It is also best to discuss with your dentist your own preferences and how you want your smile to look like.

Step 2: Teeth preparation: The next step will be preparation for designing your smile. A thin layer of your enamel will be trimmed off (under local anesthesia) to make enough room for your veneers. Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth structure and discuss with you the shape, length, width, and color of the veneers that will be used for your custom-made smile. Your porcelain veneers will be prefabricated in a lab which may take a couple of days.

Step 3: Veneer bonding: During the actual procedure, your natural teeth will be minimally reshaped from the front and sides to make sure the veneers will fit perfectly. Your teeth will first be cleaned before the veneers are finally bonded on each tooth. It may take you a couple of days to get used to your stunning Hollywood smile. If your bite does not feel right or your gums are not responding quite well, you should inform your dentist as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Veneers are also called “instant orthodontics”, with its ability to correct different aesthetic dental cases within a short period of time. For some patients, this treatment alone can complete the whole smile makeover process. If you feel insecure with your unattractive teeth and smile, veneers can solve various aesthetic dental issues which include the following:

  • Uneven teeth–Uneven teeth can be caused by teeth grinding habits or natural wear and tear when we age. This can further result in a misaligned bite also known as malocclusion. Veneers can help you have natural, youthful-looking teeth even at your old age.
  • Damaged enamel – Among the common causes of the wearing off or dulling of tooth enamel are aging, smoking, consuming certain medications and beverages such as soda or coffee.
  • Teeth gaps – Some people are born with uneven gaps between their teeth because of heredity which also widens as they age.
  • Teeth discoloration – Some teeth have discoloration and stains that have become unresponsive to teeth whitening. This is where veneers come in handy to cover up.

Since veneers are made from strong material that resembles natural teeth, they can last from 15 to 20 years. However, porcelain may come loose or break when not given proper care. Good oral hygiene such as proper tooth brushing and flossing should always be part of your daily routine. Otherwise, cavities can build under or around your veneers and actual teeth.

Avoid habits that can damage your veneers such as clenching or grinding your teeth, biting fingernails or pens, or chewing on ice. Chipped porcelain veneers cannot be repaired so precautionary aftercare is also important.

What’s great about veneers is that risk of staining them with food or drinks are less likely compared to natural teeth. However, it is still recommended to brush your teeth when consuming anything that can stain your teeth. You must also visit your dentist and hygienist regularly to keep your smile neat and well-maintained.
