A Veneer is a thin piece of porcelain or composite which is affixed to the visual portion of your tooth. Like a false fingernail fits over a nail, this covering is made to fit over the front surface of the tooth. The Veneer offers you an immediate natural and a beautiful looking smile and does not require much of the extensive work necessary for other treatments. Example – a Veneer can make a chipped tooth look whole again, it can also be used to close small gaps. The beauty of this treatment is that it makes the teeth look natural and healthy and very little preparation is needed for the tooth. Veneers can improve the color, shape, and position of your teeth, and yet they provide strength and retain the natural look.
Veneers are the best alternative to crowns or braces. Dental veneers can give the best result for close gaps or small misalignments. Peoples often choose this treatment to enhance the brightness of their teeth and straighten seemingly crooked teeth. So, if you have been feeling self-conscious while smiling because of uneven teeth or chipped tooth, then this can immensely boost your self-confidence by providing a fantastic smile, and it will also reduce sensitivity since it allows for a layer of protection over the surface of the tooth.
When should you opt for a veneer?
If you’ve been feeling self-conscious and under confident to flash that natural smile of yours because of either the color, shape, position, gap between your teeth you could consider the Veneer treatment. The treatment is also beneficial if due to external situations you’ve got a chipped tooth and it is creating embarrassment for you. The porcelain can fill, cover the broken section and bring back the natural contours of your tooth.
