3 Factors that Make Veneers Stand Out

Cosmetic dentistry is an incredibly expansive field, offering a variety of different treatments for all kinds of patients. While this is excellent if you’re trying to improve your smile, it can also make understanding what makes any given treatment stand out.

Among aesthetic treatments, veneers are arguably the one that captures most people’s attention. Here’s what sets them apart from other styles of cosmetic treatment, and why you may want to consider them for yourself.

Dealing with Stubborn Discoloration

As you may know, tooth whitening is a very popular solution for brightening smiles, and in the right circumstances it can produce unbelievable results. It’s particularly good at alleviating stains from food or drinks and is capable of giving you a smile up to eight shades whiter than it was previously.

However, sometimes the teeth appear yellow because thinning enamel exposes the dark interior of the tooth. This happens naturally with age and isn’t easily dealt with via tooth whitening. In these cases, veneers can be incredibly useful—by simply covering the tooth, you can change its apparent color no matter what caused your yellowing.

Aligning Your Smile, Quickly

There’s no shortage of adults who are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth. However, many of them are also uncomfortable with the idea of getting wire braces in adulthood, and don’t want to wait over a year to see results.

Veneers are sometimes called “instant orthodontics” for their ability to straighten teeth in just two appointments without the need for braces. They can change the shape of your teeth, affording you a straighter smile without any hassle.

Covering Chips and Cracks

While it can be easy to fixate on the aesthetic problems associated with chipped teeth, these areas of damage can also cause sensitivity and, if they leave your tooth with a jagged edge, could even cause more substantial injury to the mouth. Veneers are able to easily change the shape of your teeth, repairing chips and cracks in addition to beautifying your smile.

You’d be forgiven for getting some of the most common cosmetic procedures confused, but hopefully you can see now what makes this treatment stand apart from the rest of the pack.
