Dental Veneers at Dental Newington
Teeth can suffer many different types of imperfections. Often these imperfections are simply a matter of appearance, such as staining or minor chips. Occasionally the teeth might be misaligned to the point where it affects our ability to eat or speak. Veneers can often fix the cosmetic issues of teeth, and may even fix at least some functional issues.
Dental Newington – Porcelain Veneers
A veneer is a little like a crown, except that it only covers the front of the tooth. This means they are less expensive and easier to fit. Yet in many cases, where the tooth isn’t too bad, veneers are very effective. They are ideal for a situation where a whole row of teeth need alteration.
White Teeth – If our teeth are stained, or dull in colour, or simply do not match our skin complexion, then veneers can help. Porcelain veneers have a clean white, or if you prefer off-white, appearance. So they look like neat, ideal, natural teeth. And as a bonus, they are basically stain resistant, so they are unlikely to change over time.
Chipped and Cracked Teeth – A porcelain veneer can change the shape of the tooth. So any damage, if it is not too severe, can be corrected. The result is smoother, straighter teeth when you smile.
Pitting and Grooves – Like stains, surface imperfections in the tooth surface can be covered up with veneers. The results are stronger, better looking teeth.
Widely Spaced Teeth – This surprises a few people, but if there are larger spaces between the teeth the porcelain veneers can help. The veneers can be made slightly wider than each individual tooth, giving small neat spaces between teeth.
Over or Under Bite – Perhaps the upper jaw and lower jaw do not meet correctly when your mouth is closed. The veneers can effectively bring the row of teeth on one jaw slightly forward. This will correct slight over or under bite.
Strengthen and Protect – Veneers make teeth stronger, so they are far less likely to be damaged.
