As per the survey, more than half of the world’s population feels insecure about their teeth. Cracked, or misshapen teeth are quite common these days and you cannot hide them, especially when you smile. Fortunately, you no longer have to worry about having a closed smile when the camera flashes.
Dental veneers are an excellent alternative to get over your chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth. These veneers are a thin cover that adheres to your teeth and gives your teeth a straighter appearance, ultimately providing you with a wonderful smile.
If you have a chipped tooth, placing one veneer will suffice the need. However, for an even and symmetrical smile, some people will get six or more veneers. These veneers can last up to a decade if cemented to your teeth, and you can eat and drink as you usually do. The rough spot on the veneers will wear down after a few days of regular brushing. And if they don’t, then your dentist can smooth out these rough spots.
But before you plan to implant these dental veneers in your teeth or schedule an appointment with the dentist, it is important to understand more about their types and their benefits.
- Porcelain Veneers
- Composite Veneers
- Removable Veneers
Despite being expensive, these porcelain veneers are one of the top choices for patients who want to make small alterations to their teeth. With their durability and stain-resistant properties, they are an excellent option to make your teeth look white for years. Plus, they can last up to 15 years with proper care, mimicking the natural light-reflecting properties of natural teeth – the best option for anyone looking to improve their smile.
However, it is important to note that if they break, there is no chance of them getting repaired, you will need to consult a dentist for their replacement.
Made from composite resin material, these composite veneers have two types: direct and indirect. Direct composite veneers can be applied directly to your teeth. While the indirect ones are the customized ones, which tend to cost more and are being made either in a laboratory or your dentist’s office. Though both types look natural, these composite veneers are more likely to stain, break, and chip than porcelain veneers and have a life span of just five years.
Only offered by some dentists, these Lumineers are thinner and cheaper than porcelain veneers and can last for ten years. Plus, there is no need to prep or trim your natural teeth while implanting them and they can be removed with minimal disturbances to your teeth.
Also known as snap-on veneers, these removable veneers are a perfect alternative for those who are reluctant to get involved in the process of getting permanent veneers. As the name suggests, you can take them out whenever you wish to, yet can hide your original teeth and get a fresh smile. With types like prefabricated and custom-made ones, these removable veneers are the most affordable option. But they can only last for two years and easily noticeable, and may appear bulky depending on the shape of your mouth.
