Dental veneers: why they’re worth it
Dental veneers are a layer of material (often porcelain) placed over patients’ teeth to aesthetically improve or protect your teeth. For that reason, they are a useful treatment for both cosmetic dentists and general restorative dentistry procedures.
At Sensu, we believe veneers are a very effective way of achieving a perfect smile. Here’s why you should consider them.
Veneers can produce very good results in a short space of time. In fact, your treatment is unlikely to take more than 2 or 3 appointments, after which your treatment will be completed.
Furthermore, veneers are a great solution to a multitude of dental problems, such as gaps, bad positions, strains and chipped teeth. Because veneers can improve such a wide range of cosmetic flaws quickly, in certain cases they can actually be a better investment for some patient than several treatments, such as teeth straightening and whitening.
Veneers give you very natural looking results. Porcelain veneers in particular have very similar characteristics to natural teeth. For instance, they reflect light in a similar way to dental enamel. They can also be made very thin and translucent, so they won’t look any bigger than natural teeth.
Veneers are tailored and customised to each patient’s needs. For that reason, they’re made to match your natural teeth in terms of shape, colour and size.
Long term solution
Finally, while veneers are an investment, they’re also a long term solution. Veneers do not change colour over time and are stain-resistant, so they’re less likely to be damaged by coffee and soft drink stains, as well as smoking. They’re also scratch resistant, and most patients tend to get at least 10-15 years out of them.
Of course, like natural teeth you’ll have to take good care of them by brushing daily and flossing regularly. Other than that, they require no need for further maintenance than natural teeth.
