Dental Veneers: How They Can Boost Your Smile

Are you looking forward to getting dental veneers? Now you can enhance your magical smile and get dental veneers from Didsbury Smiles. You can consult our dentists today and treat a number of different cosmetic concerns such as chipped, broken, and discolored teeth.

Types of Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers

The most aesthetically pleasing and safest material for dental restorations is porcelain. Of all the veneer materials, it is the toughest and most durable. Because porcelain laminate veneers are so highly biocompatible, they rarely cause harm to the soft tissues, gums and other oral tissues. Because porcelain has a very natural appearance, these veneers can dramatically enhance your smile.

Lumineer veneers

Lumineers might be the best option for you if your teeth are stained, crooked, misaligned, malformed, have gaps, or you are just not content with the way they look. Dental veneers from Lumineers can be fitted over your natural teeth to give you a gorgeous, natural-looking smile. Dentists that have received training in minimally invasive painless procedures such as placing Lumineers often avoid the use of injections and excessive drilling.

Removable veneers

By concealing your natural teeth, removable veneers, commonly referred to as snap-on veneers, can give you an entirely new smile. With this option, you can conceal gaps, stains, missing teeth, and other flaws and then remove these when necessary.

Composite veneers

The least invasive type of tooth covering is called a composite veneer, which is made of composite resin. This composite material covers your natural teeth and helps give them a more appealing shape. The same bonding material that is used to create tooth-colored dental fillings is also utilized to create composite veneers. Composite veneers are sturdy, however, they do not last as long as porcelain; however, veneers made of composite resin are less expensive than those made of porcelain. They blend in reasonably well with the color of your natural teeth, although they are more prone to staining over time. They often last for five to seven years.

Why Get Dental Veneers?

Restore damage and cracks

If you recently had an accident that damaged some of your teeth, you might be hesitant or embarrassed to smile as much as you used to. Or, perhaps, hot/cold drinks or sweets cause you significant discomfort. It could be that you inadvertently grind your teeth at night and have compromised the integrity of your teeth. These damages and sensitivities can make both eating and smiling difficult. Thankfully, dental veneers can help solve many of these issues right away.

Improving the appearance of short teeth

In addition to treating accident-related chips and cracks, veneers are also great for those with shorter-than-average teeth. This disorder, also known as "microdontia," can cause an unbalanced grin by affecting just one or two teeth. Your other natural teeth may be more susceptible to wear and strain as a result.

Refill gaps between your teeth

Some of our clients also have gaps in their smiles as a result of having smaller teeth. Although heredity is frequently the culprit, the undesirable habit of tongue pushing can also play a role in the development of these tiny holes. This issue may also get worse if you used to habitually eat your thumbs as a child.

But did you know that gum disease and tooth decay are both worsened by gaps between your teeth? This is because plaque can develop in these difficult-to-reach areas. In some situations, your tooth may also shift to the empty gap, which can worsen your bite pattern. Because of this, dental veneers are a great option to maintain the best possible state of your oral health and go beyond a mere cosmetic fix.

What are the Causes of Gaps, Chips, and Cracks?

Every day your teeth are exposed to acidic foods and beverages causing your enamel to gradually deteriorate over time. Because our enamel isn't as robust as it once was as we get older, it is more likely that we may encounter chipped teeth.

How to choose a dental veneer

Pick Veneers Based on Tooth Color

The whiteness of our teeth can vary greatly. For each patient's veneers, cosmetic dentists consult standardized color charts to choose the ideal tint. A typical standardized color chart has 44 hues, which are divided into the following four categories:

  • A (reddish brown)
  • B (reddish yellow)
  • C (gray)
  • D (reddish gray)

Select Veneers Based on Tooth Shape

The shape of your teeth affects the overall aesthetic of your smile and will vary somewhat from tooth to tooth, so picking the proper shape for your veneers is crucial. Cosmetic dentists frequently use the Las Vegas Institute Smile Catalog, one of the most popular indexes for tooth form reference.

Pick Veneers Based on Face Shape

The contour of your face should be taken into consideration when selecting veneers. Regarding shape, faces can be divided into four broad categories: heart, oval, round, and square. The ideal tooth size and form for each category can add balance to your facial characteristics and improve your overall appearance.

While each person's face is unique, the following fundamental guidelines apply when selecting veneers:

  • Heart-shaped faces work better with rounded and shorter veneers.
  • Oval-shaped tend to look better with square teeth, which add fullness and help widen the face.
  • Round-shaped faces look better with veneers that are longer and more pronounced.
  • Square-shaped faces look better with rounded teeth, as rounded teeth soften the defined jaw lines and other features of the face.

Benefits of dental veneers

The main advantage of veneers is that they make your teeth look better, making your smile brighter and more even. These cosmetic issues are frequently treated with dental veneers:

broken or chipped teeth
Severe discoloration or uneven coloring that can’t be fixed with whitening
Gaps in teeth
Smaller than average teeth
Pointed or unusually shaped teeth

Depending on the type of veneer you select, they can last for more than ten years, making them a semi-permanent investment that can boost your confidence in your smile.

Procedure for Dental Veneers

Before taking an impression of your teeth to create a mold, some dentists will first grind your tooth down to prepare it for the veneer. The porcelain veneer will then be created using the mold that was sent to a lab. Once the veneer is ready, your dentist can place it on your prepared tooth and cement it in place.

Recovery Time after a Dental Veneer Procedure

The majority of patients need approximately two weeks to get used to their new veneers. One typical indication of recovery is sensitive teeth. Consider using toothpaste made for sensitive teeth to ease this irritation. Avoiding extremely hot or cold foods and drinks might also be beneficial.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How much does a full set of DENTAL VENEERS cost?

A full set of dental veneers can cost anywhere between $1080 – $1200.

2. When I get my dental veneers, how long before I can eat again?

Some people can start eating soft food in just an hour or two, and the longest you’d have to wait to eat is one day.

3. What is the difference between veneers and porcelain?

The preparation time and contouring of your underlying natural teeth are reduced since ceramic veneers are manufactured rather than machined. However, porcelain veneers need a lot of preparation and shaping, so you can frequently be given a temporary veneer until the final veneer is made.

4. How long do dental veneers last?

Traditional veneers typically last 10 to 15 years, but they can last up to 20 years. If taken care of properly, they might last even longer.

5. What happens if one of my veneers comes off?

Keep your cracked or detached porcelain veneer in a hard, clean container. Keep it somewhere clean so that your dentist can try to put it back in place.

6. How do I care for my veneers?

Here’s how our dentist recommends you should take care of your porcelain veneers.

  • Brush your teeth twice daily for 2 minutes
  • Floss your teeth once daily
  • Use fluoride mouth rinse once daily
  • Don’t chew on ice
  • See our dentist every 6 months
