Many of our patients are interested in what dental veneers are used for. A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain that is applied to your natural teeth. There are several reasons why Dr. Roe would suggest this treatment plan as an option for your oral health.
What Are Dental Veneers Used For?
Dr. Roe is committed to helping you achieve a makeover on your smile. He wants you to feel confident in your look once again. Dental veneers can be used to help him achieve this for you.
Some of the reasons he may incorporate this into your treatment plan can include:
Severely discolored teeth can benefit from porcelain veneers. Depending on the reason for the discoloration, you may not be able to whiten the teeth with bleach. Medications, tooth trauma, and root canals can cause the inside of your tooth to darken.
If you have a tooth that cannot be whitened, Dr. Roe will use a veneer to help you achieve a whiter smile. First, the rest of your teeth will need to be whitened so that the veneer can be custom shaded for your mouth.
Close Gaps and Spaces
If you have a small enough gap in your teeth, a dental veneer can be used to close it. Orthodontics is not the only treatment plan that can be used. Dr. Roe will evaluate your smile and determine if this is a good solution to your problem.
Change Tooth Shape
Should you have a chip in a tooth or a misshapen tooth, this may be the right treatment plan. The veneer will be shaped to fit in with the rest of your teeth and can cover over the tooth that is damaged.
Smooth Out The Tooth Enamel
For those that have tooth enamel that is visibly uneven, a dental veneer can smooth out the look. You will have a more uniform smile with the fronts of your teeth looking smooth.
What Are The Benefits of Dental Veneers
From the standpoint of oral health care, veneers are a great option. Your gums are able to tolerate porcelain well, which means you will deal with little irritation while you get used to the fixture.
Another great reason for this treatment plan, is that very little shaping must be done to your natural teeth. This leaves you with a stronger base and less chances of dental concerns later on.
