A veneers dentist office is the best place to find out why dental veneers can be the solution to your dental challenges. A number of patients discover that seeing a cosmetic dentist is the quickest and least expensive way to solve their dental needs. We use veneers for any number of corrective procedures.
Despite popular culture making veneers known for perfectly white teeth, this is only one small element of what patients can achieve under the guidance of a veneers dentist. Teeth whitening is naturally possible with veneers when traditional methods fail. However, it is used more frequently for repairing teeth that have experienced trauma and are cracked, broken, or chipped.
We also use dental veneers to repair damage from decay and in some cases, to correct bite issues. All this means that you need to speak with a specialist, a veneers dentist, to determine how veneers can help you.
When patients have a serious challenge that we need to address in the mouth, they need to look out for a number of factors for repairing them. The first of these is the factor of time. Many patients do not have a lot of time or do not want to spend a lot of time getting a dental treatment. In cases like this, patients may have to rule out braces or other orthodontic procedures. Other patients want the solution to be a lifetime, or at least a very long-term, solution.
Dental veneers are considered a permanent solution since they are adhered to the teeth using dental cement after we have shaved away a portion of the enamel first. Then the patient needs to look at cost. A number of orthodontic or cosmetic dental procedures can be extremely expensive, especially when one compares them with dental veneers. Come in and speak with our veneers dentist to find out if one can benefit.
One question patients often ask our Denver dentist office is, "What are veneers made of and why?" Dental veneers typically consist of porcelain. As a veneers dentist, we find that in order to fabricate a prosthetic device, the material has to meet certain criteria. In the case of porcelain, which we use for veneers and dental crowns, the criteria are biocompatibility, aesthetics, and insolubility.
The first and most important of all of these criteria is biocompatibility, which refers to the ability of a substance to be accepted by the body. It does not matter how good the tooth looks or feels if the body rejects it. We need to then replace the tooth. In order to avoid this, we use a biocompatible porcelain. In addition, porcelain allows us to do aesthetic work. We can stain and shade porcelain to look like the natural teeth, so when we place it over front-facing teeth, nobody can tell the difference between natural teeth and teeth a veneers dentist repairs.
Finally, because we place the veneers in the mouth, which has bacteria, bacterial acid, saliva, and is used for grinding food, we cannot make veneers out of a soluble substance. Porcelain is extremely hard, harder than enamel, and is not soluble. These factors make it a great fit for fabricating the dental veneers by a veneers dentist.
