How They Work
Dental veneers are attached to your teeth in a similar way to crowns. They are caps that are bonded onto your teeth to give them a bright new appearance.
But unlike crowns, they don't require as much of your teeth to be reshaped in order to properly and securely adhere them into place. Veneers are typically thin but very strong porcelain caps, so only about a millimeter of your enamel has to be removed. This means that little to no anesthesia may be required during the procedure, but it depends on certain variables. Nonetheless, because the enamel is removed and your teeth need protection, dental veneers are very much a permanent treatment.
The Advantage of Veneers
Dental veneers are an excellent solution if you suffer from a variety of dental problems. Such as slight gaps, and crooked or misshapen teeth due to chips or wear.
Your dentist may suggest to you alternative treatments if your concerns are too severe for the procedure. Dental veneers require otherwise healthy teeth and gums, so your dentist may advise treating cavities and signs of gum disease and decay first. Dental veneers are also a great option if you have teeth that will not whiten through traditional means.
