The Value of Veneers

If you’re anxious or ashamed about your damaged or discolored teeth, then veneers may be right for you. Discover how these dental wonders can give you a wonderful smile.

Beautiful 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 many issues such as eroded tooth enamel, poor tooth alignment, chips, fractures, and stains. They make your teeth whiter, brighter, straighter, and stronger. While 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 be a better candidate for veneers or crowns, your dentist can help you figure that out. Also, keep in mind that how much individual veneers cost can vary based on the material used and the application process.

Dental Problems Perfect for Veneers

Veneers are ideal for many, but they’re not right for everyone. Your dentist will determine if veneers or crowns are best for you based on your dental concerns. Veneers are most commonly recommended to correct these dental issues:

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

Comparing Composite Resin Veneers to Porcelain Veneers

Veneers can be made out of composite resin or porcelain, as well as being created indirectly or directly. If you opt for indirect veneers, then composite resin or porcelain is used to create your veneers in a dental laboratory. Later, those veneers are applied to your teeth. In contrast, direct composite resin veneers are formed on your teeth directly by your dentist. For more serious dental issues, porcelain veneers are best. But if you have more minor dental problems or you’re concerned about what veneers cost, then composite resin veneers are the ideal choice for you. Your dentist in Detroit can advise you on the right treatment for your teeth.
