Considering Veneers: Are They for You?

Sunday, August 14th, 2016

If you have a tooth problem, anything from discolored teeth to crooked teeth to gaps between your teeth, dental veneers may be the answer for you. Veneers are shells created to go over your natural teeth and create a beautiful smile.

How do veneers work?
Made from very thin tooth-colored material, veneers cover the front of your teeth to hide imperfections. They also can alter the size, length, and shape of your teeth. Veneers may be created from resin composite or porcelain, although most are now made of porcelain because it is resistant to stains and very natural appearance.

What are the benefits of veneers?

  • It’s very difficult to tell the difference between veneers and real teeth.
  • Porcelain veneers won’t be stained by coffee, tea, red wine, or cigarettes.
  • Veneer colors may be chosen from many shades of white, so you can whiten your smile at the same time as correcting your teeth.
  • Veneers are sometimes an option for healthy teeth instead of crowns.

Are there any disadvantages?

  • Veneers generally aren’t covered by insurance.
  • Your teeth may become more sensitive with veneers because some of the enamel that protects your teeth has been removed.
  • Once your teeth are set for veneers, the process generally can’t be reversed.

Are veneers right for me?
Veneers can be a good option instead of braces to conceal gaps or crooked teeth. They can also hide chips, cracks, or uneven teeth. Veneers are a great way to whiten your teeth if they don’t respond to other methods. However, veneers aren’t good for teeth weakened by breaks, decay, or large fillings. Crowns may be a better option instead.
