Veneers West Palm Beach | It is Necessary to Veneer All of Your Teeth?
If you are unhappy with how your teeth look, there are dental cosmetic options such as veneers West Palm Beach that are bonded to the surface of your tooth to enhance its appearance. Dental veneers are a great solution for people with discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned, spaced, or uneven or irregularly shaped teeth.
Veneers or Teeth Whitening for Discolored Teeth?
Discolored teeth can be due to side-effects of certain medications, trauma, highly pigmented food and drinks, smoking, and aging. But there are cases where teeth whitening won’t be of help to address discoloration. When teeth whitening is not an option for your tooth discoloration, veneers will be the perfect solution for you.
Do I Need Veneers for All My Teeth?
The most obvious reason why people choose veneers is the increased confidence that comes from having a beautiful smile. Veneers also make it impossible to tell its difference from your natural tooth as they are specifically molded for your teeth. Once they are made, they do not change color but your natural change over time. This can lead to awkward differences in your smile. However, with regular dental visits, you can stay on top of this issue and ensure your smile stays consistent with veneers. Veneers are not a must, but an option. You can do one tooth or your entire set of teeth if your needs and budget allow it.
How to Keep Your Veneers Intact
Veneers are made from wafer-thin porcelain that covers the outer layer of your tooth. Because porcelain is so delicate, they are also more prone to cracking and chipping than crowns or fillings. They are not recommended for people with teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism), chewing on ice or other hard objects, and habits like nail-biting. You can keep your veneers in good shape by practicing good oral hygiene habits and avoid chewing or biting hard foods or objects.
