Are you unhappy with the appearance of your otherwise healthy teeth? If so, our friendly and knowledgeable Fayetteville dentists can help you determine if cosmetic treatment using veneers made from porcelain is right for you.
Veneers are typically used to correct aesthetic issues affecting the appearance of the teeth. They can be used to correct the size and shape of teeth that are worn or out of proportion to the size of the face, brighten teeth that are yellow and dingy, eliminate small gaps between teeth without the use of braces, and camouflage chipped or misaligned teeth.
Each porcelain veneer is custom-made to blend in with your natural teeth, so the dentist will start by making a mold of your teeth. In some cases, the dentist may remove a thin layer of enamel from the tooth to ensure that the porcelain veneer fits properly. Once the veneer is attached, they should look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
Both veneers and crowns are long-lasting and affordable options for improving the appearance of your teeth. Veneers attach to the front surface of the tooth, so they are best suited for correcting minor cosmetic issues. Crowns fit over the entire surface of the tooth, which is why they are sometimes referred to as porcelain teeth. Crowns are best suited for reinforcing the structural integrity of heavily damaged teeth or for back teeth that bear the brunt of chewing forces when eating.
With proper care, veneers porcelain can last for decades. You care for them the same as you would your natural teeth by brushing and flossing. While veneers are durable, you should take commonsense steps to protect them from damage, such as avoiding candy apples and other hard foods and not using your teeth to open bottles or packages. If you clench or grind your teeth, you may want to consider wearing a night guard to protect your veneers.
Lumineers® are thinner than traditional veneers. This means that little to no tooth enamel has to be removed in order to attach the veneer. Despite the fact that they are ultrathin, Lumineers® are still exceptionally durable.
