What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are made of a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to your tooth. They are a frequent choice for patients who have small teeth, gaps between teeth or discolored or misshapen teeth.
Veneers are perfect for patients who have healthy teeth but dislike how they look. Our dentists only use crowns and dental implants in instances where teeth are decaying or otherwise unhealthy.
Why Get Veneers?
Many people are unhappy with how one or more of their teeth look. At our Buffalo, NY, dentist office, we have a variety of solutions for different problems. If your teeth are crooked, we talk to you about orthodontia. If they are discolored, bleaching might be right for you. If one or more of your teeth are chipped, we may be able to offer you bonding.
Candidates for dental veneers are usually those for whom the above solutions don’t work. For instance, if your teeth are discolored due to many years of smoking or taking medication and you can’t tolerate the discomfort associated with bleaching or your teeth don’t respond to bleaching, veneers might be a good solution for you.
If your teeth are healthy, but small, worn down or irregularly shaped, veneers can give your smile a more typical appearance.
How Do Veneers Work?
In order for our dentists to place veneers, we have to remove a thin layer of the enamel on your teeth to make room for the veneer. Most porcelain veneers are about a half-millimeter thick. Lumineers are thinner and thus do not require enamel to be removed from your teeth. Traditional porcelain veneers last anywhere from 10-20 years, while Lumineers may not last as long.
Because our dentists must remove some of the enamel from your healthy teeth, veneers are a lifetime commitment, and when they wear out, you must get replacements. This isn’t the case with Lumineers, however, because they are so thin. You can have them removed at any time.
Additionally, not every patient is a candidate for veneers. If teeth are badly discolored, the discoloration might be visible through the veneer. An evaluation from our dentists can help determine if veneers are right for you.
