The Rising Popularity of Veneers

what is a dental veneer? Gibsonton

In a perfect world, each of your prized teeth would stay healthy, strong, and brilliantly white throughout your life. The truth is, however, that most Florida men and women will need to restore a tooth at some point. And some people never had perfect teeth, to begin with.

Many people are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth because they are chipped, cracked, or because they have yellowed. The good news is, there are solutions to all of these problems. In today’s post, we describe one of these solutions: veneers. At Your Time Dental Urgent Care, we provide veneers for both urgent care procedures and long-standing tooth problems.

What are dental veneers?

Traditional veneers come in the form of tooth-colored covers that are fitted to the teeth. Each veneer is designed for one individual tooth. More recently, clip-on veneers have become available. For clip-on veneers, individuals can take a mold of their teeth and in return receive what looks like a tooth-colored retainer.

A veneer can be used when the underlying tooth is structurally sound and free of tooth decay. A beautiful veneer can cover a chip or crack or correct the alignment of a tooth that appears slightly off-kilter as compared to surrounding teeth.

Veneers are often made from dental porcelain, but sometimes they are made from composite resin. Many men and women find veneers appealing because they can improve the appearance of the teeth by making them look whiter or because they have the ability to protect the teeth from damage. They are a more conservative treatment than a complete crown because they don’t require the removal of as much tooth structure. Lastly, they are generally more budget-friendly than a complete crown.

Veneers can make the teeth and an individual’s smile more aesthetically pleasing. That is why they are becoming more popular amongst young professionals especially those who have teeth that have yellowed or have a superficial crack or small chip.

Plenty of individuals have chipped teeth or teeth that have yellowed for some reason. When it comes to a professional setting, appearances and first impressions are critical, and that often starts with a smile.
