How Composite Resin or Porcelain Veneers can Improve how Teeth Last and Look

dca-blog-254-Dental-Veneers_1200x630

If you’re troubled by your teeth because they’re looking less than their best, discover the beauty of veneers. See if this dental option would be good for you and your smile.

The Comparative Benefits of Veneers

Dental veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry where a thin layer of tooth-colored material is applied over a tooth to improve its appearance and strength. They can correct a host of issues including eroded tooth enamel, poor tooth alignment, chips, fractures, and stains. And they make your teeth whiter, brighter, straighter, and stronger. Often confused with crowns, veneers are more durable and provide more attractive results without the need for removing tooth structure, which crowns usually demand. If you’re wondering whether you might need veneers or crowns, talk to your dentist. And, keep in mind that what individual veneers cost can vary based on the material used and the application process.

Dental Problems that Warrant Veneers

While veneers aren’t advised for everyone, they may be able to help you enhance and strengthen your smile. Your dentist will determine whether veneers or crowns are more worthwhile for you based on your dental concerns. Veneers are most commonly recommended to correct these dental issues:

  • Wear and tear from time and prior dental behaviors
  • Uneven teeth from years of wear or tooth grinding
  • Dull, discolored, or deteriorating tooth enamel
  • Poor tooth alignment or spacing due to genetics
  • Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth

How Composite Resin Veneers Differ from Porcelain Veneers

Veneers can be made out of composite resin or porcelain, and they can be created indirectly or directly. If you choose indirect veneers, then composite resin or porcelain is used to create your veneers in a dental laboratory, which are later applied to your teeth. In contrast, direct composite resin veneers are formed on your teeth directly by your dentist. Porcelain veneers are best for severe dental damage and problems. If you have less extensive dental issues or you’re concerned about what veneers cost, then composite resin veneers are the ideal choice for you. Your dentist in Flint can advise you on the appropriate treatment for your teeth.
