Getting veneers is an extremely personal journey and one that can lead to rebuilding your happiness. Some people are simply born with dental issues whereas some people suffer accidents or develop issues over time, which can damage their self-esteem. Opting for veneers can be the start of the process which leads to you regaining perfect teeth. From crooked teeth, broken or stained teeth, there is a range of issues that can lead to you seeking out a solution.
Often, if you have crooked teeth, it's an issue you're born with and if it doesn't show early on, it will likely become prevalent when your adult teeth come through. Discoloured teeth, on the other hand, is an issue that develops over time and is essentially a result of wear and tear. Dark liquids and other habits, such as smoking, can take their toll on your teeth over time, eradicating that desirable white glow. There are other issues that can cause discolouration too, such as a dead tooth, this often leads to the tooth becoming dull and more grey in colour, which can stand out against other white teeth.
In the case of a dead tooth, porcelain veneers are a great option as you don't have to worry about permanently changing your natural tooth, due to its damaged state. This allows you to use the tooth as a base to have what is essentially a brand new, shiny white tooth, replace it. This means you don't have to live with an issue that would otherwise cause permanent change to your smile. As the results are also long-lasting, they can prove a great investment for those who want to maintain a great smile for many years.
Cost can be a huge factor when choosing your veneers and deciding which type of veneer to get. With porcelain veneers, they can last up to twice as long as composite veneers, making them much more of a long-term investment. This also reduces the number of appointments you'll need over this time, allowing you to carry on with your day to day life, without worrying about having to book more appointments.
Crooked teeth are an extremely common issue which patients look to have fixed with dental veneers, as they can transform your smile and make teeth appear straighter. With composite material, this can be applied to areas of the teeth to reshape them entirely, making a full set of crooked teeth appear perfectly straight. This is also a great alternative to those who don't want to face the hassle of having braces as this also provides excellent results in a much shorter time. Braces can also make brushing and eating certain foods more difficult, however, with veneers, although you still have to care for them, you can look after them as you would your natural teeth.
Damaged teeth, such as teeth with cracks or chips can't be fixed by treatments such as braces, however, veneers can completely transform your teeth. If your teeth have cracked either due to an accident or as a result of grinding your teeth, dental veneers can help restore the tooth's integrity. The veneer can also be used to fill or replace gaps that have been left by chips, whilst also whitening the tooth, making it appear even whiter than before.
