This part of the human body can make a big difference on how we look. A simple smile can change another person’s mood. But how can we achieve the perfect smile?
Dental Veneers. Yes, this invention is a very effective restoration for a person’s teeth. These were invented way back 1928 but it was improved through the years. It is a wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of the teeth to improve your appearance. They are used to hide the dental flaws of a person. May it be cracked, stained, chipped, uneven or widely spaced teeth. The thin shells smooth out the appearance of misaligned teeth by covering up the unevenness. This invention offers a minimally invasive technique to make your smile look more natural, bright, and healthy looking. Most of the time, it wouldn’t require teeth reduction. It can transform your smile without the need for any surgical procedures.
There are two main types of material used to create a veneer: composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be built up directly or indirectly in the mouth while on the other hand, porcelain veneers may only be indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental lab. Porcelain veneers are more durable and less likely to stain than veneers made of composite. These can cost from $500 each to over $2000. Veneers of composite material tend to be cheaper than porcelain though as they are less durable and may be in need of replacement more often. Based on studies, they typically last 5–10 years. After this time, the veneers would need to be replaced. This will require good oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash as you normally would. You also need to adjust your lifestyle a bit if you want these to last really long. Try to avoid consuming stain-causing foods and drinks for example. You should refrain from eating hard foods to avoid chipping or cracking them. Although they are made of robust material, excessive biting and chewing may still cause fractures. It may be difficult to adjust at first but it will pay off for sure.
Reviews also show that veneers have a great success in changing people’s lives. With the cost of these things and the advantages of it, it surely is a great deal. It’s not just your appearance that you’re improving, but how you feel about yourself. When you do changes in your life, it should always be for the betterment of oneself.
