Many people have achieved a “celebrity-looking smile” with veneers. And while it’s true that veneers can fix many cosmetic issues including discolored teeth or missing teeth, they’re also able to improve your oral health and overall well-being. Here are some reasons to choose veneers over other products.
Improve misshapen teeth significantly
One of the biggest reasons to use veneers is that they can get rid of sharp teeth and jagged areas. This improves the look of your teeth, of course. However, it also can provide you with some oral health protection. Because those areas tend to be damaging to the tissues in your mouth, such as your gums, getting rid of sharp teeth and jagged areas is quite important. This can reduce the risk of pain and inflammation.
Though gaps may seem like a problem related to just the look of your smile, they go further. Gaps can be problematic because they create areas where food particles can hide. Over time, this can create several problems, including an increased risk of gum disease and cavities. Another complication arises when the gaps create spaces between other teeth. Because your teeth work to support each other on either side, it becomes important for all teeth to be present. Veneers can help to fix this by filling in those gaps. This gives you the smile you want and the protection you need.
Easier than braces
Perhaps you have a significant amount of misalignment in your smile. This is not uncommon. However, the most common treatment is the use of braces. Braces work well, both invisible and standard forms. For many people, this is the best first step. However, braces can be more expensive, and they can mean months of having to wear an oral appliance. For those who can benefit from braces but do not want them, veneers are another solution. It is not always wise to get veneers rather than braces, but your dentist can offer more insight into whether it is better for you.
Hide cracks well
Another benefit to using veneers over other products is that they work well to hide cracks in your teeth. While veneers cannot repair cracks, they can offer some protection from those cracks spreading and causing bigger breaks in your smile. In many cases, they can also help to improve the look of your smile by hiding these problem areas. Both ceramic and composite veneers work well to help stop this problem from getting worse.
