Non-cosmetic Reasons to Consider Veneers

Why veneers are so effective

Veneers are thin tooth coverings that bond to the front surface of your tooth. Each veneer is custom-made to match your natural teeth in both shade and shape to give you a natural-looking smile.

The road to complete your veneer journey is simple. You’ll start with a consultation at which time the Midtown Dental Care providers evaluate your overall dental health to ensure veneers are a good treatment option for your desired goals.

To create your custom veneers, your provider takes a mold of your teeth to ensure each veneer fits properly and matches the shape of your existing teeth. A professional dental lab designs your veneers, and you’ll schedule a follow-up visit at Midtown Dental Care for their placement.

Ensuring the veneers bond to your natural teeth, a small amount of enamel is removed from the tooth’s surface before a dental-safe bonding agent is applied. With expert precision, the dentist applies the veneer over the tooth, instantly improving its appearance.

How veneers treat non-cosmetic dental issues

Veneers provide an instant update for discolored, crooked, or too-small teeth, enhancing the overall aesthetic of your mouth. Additionally, this popular procedure offers a variety of dental health benefits you may not have considered. These dental health benefits include:

Pain prevention

Cracked or broken teeth can lead to chronic pain when the nerve of the tooth is exposed to air and cold and hot food temperatures.

By sealing the veneer to the surface of your tooth, it can cover up the nerve and prevent recurrent or chronic toothaches and pain.

Reduced infection risk

Veneers can improve the overall health of your teeth, addressing surface cracks and chips that can leave you vulnerable to infection. Dental infections can become life-threatening if left untreated, traveling to other areas of your body, including your brain.

Addressing surface cracks and chips with custom veneers not only improves the look of your smile, it reduces the risks for complications common with dental infections.

Gap improvement

If you have noticeable gaps in your teeth, it may affect how you feel about your smile’s appearance. Gaps can also put your tooth health at risk because these spaces make it easier for food particles and bacteria to become trapped.

Sugars and germs stick on the surface areas of your teeth and in your gum line, increasing your risk for painful cavities and gum disease. Veneers can cover up these gaps, eliminating access to food particles and bacteria to prevent cavities and progressive decay.

Renewed tooth support

Bonding veneers to the surface of your teeth provides instant strength to the tooth’s structure. This renewed support can treat and prevent cracks and chips that form from biting into foods or chewing, reducing your risk for more serious tooth damage and the need for extraction.
