Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are cemented on the front surface of your teeth. While these veneers are often associated with cosmetic dentistry, veneers can also serve to restore decayed teeth. Compared to other procedures, dental veneers will preserve your tooth and keep it from being extracted. While traditional dental veneers require two visits to Tate C. Langdon in Huntersville, NC, using CEREC technology, you can get your veneers in just one day.
What can dental veneers do?
Veneers come in handy during these following situations:
The enamel protects the innermost region of the tooth from getting infected. It’s important to have an intact enamel region especially because the pulp layer contains sensitive nerve tissues which can be damaged easily and cause extreme pain. Acidic and sugary substances can accelerate the erosion of your teeth and leave you with a worn-out enamel. Dental veneers protect the enamel and keep your teeth sealed.
Cracked and chipped teeth
Cracks and chips present more than just an aesthetic problem; these breaks can actually lead your tooth becoming infected as well as cause deep-set stains. Chips develop either due to mechanical damage or because of the natural process of aging. Veneers will restore your teeth to their natural appearance and seal of the cracks to prevent bacteria and food debris from getting into the interior of your tooth.
Excessive teeth grinding can wear down your teeth and, in extreme cases, even cause them to become nothing more than stumps. Veneers will help elongate your teeth back to their natural length and also protect the teeth from the consequences of further teeth grinding.
What’s the difference between porcelain veneers and composite resin veneers?
These two procedures are often pitted against each other, but what sets them apart from each other? Porcelain veneers are tooth shells which are made in the laboratory. Because these veneers still need to be fabricated, it takes two visits to Tate C. Langdon in Huntersville, NC before the veneer can be cemented into place. On the other hand, composite resin veneers refers to the composite bonding procedure wherein the material is placed on the tooth and then molded in order to restore the natural appearance of the tooth.
How can you take care of your veneers?
Your veneers can still be broken and damaged especially when eating things that are too hard. Other than being discriminating with your diet, you can protect your veneers by wearing mouth guards when you play sports or, if you suffer from bruxism, when you go to sleep.
