Veneers – just like nail art, but on your teeth

I love doing my nails, giving them a whole new look, when I feel that they look worn-out.

And guess what? The same thing can be done with your teeth too. The solution is called: tooth veneers.

Are you one of those people who wonder why and how dental veneers should be used and what are veneers for? Do you find yourself reading an article and thinking: what is a veneer? Well, I was the same, but you don’t need to wonder any longer. Here, you are going to tell you what I know.

These so called instant veneers are extremely thin shells that are placed over the teeth and used to cover imperfect teeth either to enhance their aesthetics or to protect them from further damages. These dental care structures have been invented many years ago, in the year of 1982 in Hollywood. However, today they are popular all over the world because of the great qualities that they hold. They are simple inserted on top of the tooth and they will remove any kind of problems that is currently observed there. They cover the cracks, improve the overall appearance and the strength of your teeth significantly. Often chipped, worn down, uneven, stained or crooked teeth are unsightly and affect your appearance. But with the help of modern developments in cosmetic dentistry you can improve the appearance of your teeth and feel confident about them. What else could you want from tiny little pieces of porcelain? I really think this is great!

Instead of having expensive dental implants installed in your mouth, you can get rid of tooth problem faster, you could have these teeth veneers instead without spending too much money. The fact that the veneers for teeth could be used in case you have a cracked tooth too as they would cover the defect – in case it is not badly broken of course-! This is cool because nobody will tell that your tooth had been broken. Moreover, the tooth will regain its natural outlook and you will be in an excellent position to walk down the street and have that “Hollywood-smile”. The overall strength of the teeth is greatly improved, bacause the veneers act like shields against any external damage.

These instant or temporary veneers could be used in this way simply because they’ll  cover anything such as dark spots, discolored teeth thanks to smoking and coffee/tee drinking habits. This makes them practically universal.

There is one very common reason why the tooth veneer is used, and that is a huge gap between the patient’s teeth. This is actually not rare, just think a little bit and you’ ll realize that at least 3 of your friends have this nasty gap issue.

So the veneers are dental care structures, which may be constructed from different materials. There is some differences in how veneers looked before and after. There have been two kinds of dental veneer applications, one is Composite Veneers that are made of composite resins, which can be directly built up in the mouth or indirectly fabricated over your teeth, and the other one is Porcelain Veneers that are indirectly fabricated and mounted onto your teeth and the usage of a porcelain veneer is a rather common practice today.However Cerec technology and the usage of cerec veneers that are installed in one sitting at the dentist is getting more and more popular. I have written some more about Composite Veneers, Porcelain Veneers, and Cerec Veneers too.

There are so called Emax veneers and “Lumineers” too, I’ll talk about them later.

 

As a matter of fact, if you happen to grind your teeth, bite your fingernails, or chew on any hard objects, you are not recommended to have these cosmetic veneers as they can be damaged and it is not worthy to pay all the cost of porcelain veneers.

You might wonder as well; how long do veneers last and how much teeth veneers cost? It is estimated that once installed the teeth veneers could stay there up to 30 years. It sounds nice isn’t it? Well, too nice to be true. I really hope that it is like that.

However, you shouldn’t forget about one thing: these dental care structures/veneers cost a bit -even if the costs of veneers are relatively low compared to other traditional methods- and that is why you should have some money before you actually go for it, especially if you are after some cheap veneers. You might wonder now; how much do veneers cost or how much are veneers worthy to pay for?

Dental veneers are not something that you want to bargain for (hehe), dental veneers cost a bit more than you would expect. The veneers price can be rather high. Most likely your doctor would want to rip you off and suggest you to pay a high price of veneers. However, you should check all your options. Don’t be afraid to look and shop around, it is well worth your time to find a good price and a reputable clinic to have it done. Never buy the cheapest veneers, these teeth veneer prices can vary a lot and the cheapest ones might be a risk-taking as they don’t carry high quality at all!

SO that is all for now folks. :D Tell me what you think.
