Veneers can be very beneficial to the overall appearance of your teeth because they can cover up chips, cracks, and discoloration in the teeth. They feel and look natural which means there is minimal discomfort and will restore your confidence in your smile. Veneers require little enamel removal, are very low maintenance, and are durable. You must perform your regular oral hygiene in order to keep your teeth healthy by brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Dental veneers require a minimally invasive procedure and are great for a quick fix such as missing or gapped teeth.
Veneers Vs. Crowns
Veneers and crowns are both dental procedures done to improve the appearance and function of your teeth. A veneer is only 1 millimeter thick and covers the front of your tooth, while a crown is 2 millimeters thick and must cover the entire tooth. Veneers require a less invasive procedure and leave more of your original tooth intact. The crown will require more of your original tooth to be filed down in order for it to be placed on the entire tooth correctly. You must have enough enamel in order for a veneer to bond to the tooth. It is important to consult with your dentist to determine which procedure is best for you.
