Dental veneers - why to choose them?

we present an example how dental veneers look like

Do you have healthy but not very nice teeth? Numerous discolorations cause that you are not happy and you are embarrassed and ashamed of your smile? The gaps between your teeth "do not let you sleep at night"? If you dream of a ‘TV stars’ smile, then there is a way! Think about veneers ...

What are the veneers?

Veneers are nothing more than thin porcelain flakes that "stick to" (or more precisely cement) to the outer (visible at the smile) side of the tooth. Most often, the tooth before cementing must be delicately polished, so that after its "appending" it is not thicker than before. Veneers are almost never used to treat teeth, they perform purely aesthetic functions. Veneers are chosen in order to ensure the highest aesthetic effect, so that teeth are white, simple and beautiful, just like in TV stars.

Unfortunately, for various reasons, even people who take care of their teeth, do not always have them snow-white, simple and can boast with a beautiful smile without restraint. As a result of inadequate care for teeth in childhood, various orthodontic problems, too many (often unnecessary) devitalizations, drugs taken in the past, or simply because of genetic conditions today, not all can boast of a nice smile.

So what can we do? How to save our smile and restore its former splendor? One of the available solutions that your dentist will certainly suggest to you, or at least what he should suggest to you, if your teeth are healthy, only do not look nice - only the veneers to consider. They are used to change the color of teeth, to correct "crooked teeth", to eliminate gaps between them (diastema). Why are only porcelain veneers used? For two reasons, first, to achieve the best aesthetic effect (after all, we use veneers), secondly, because the veneers are very thin, so they must be made of a material durable enough.

When can veneers be used and when should not?

According to our opinion, veneers can be used when tooth / teeth have "only" aesthetic problems. Ie. teeth are healthy "from the inside", but their appearance is not the best (they are dark, have numerous discolorations, are crooked, there are gaps between them). Very often dark teeth are as healthy as possible. The most common issue is that dental problems start from the inside and for a long time are simply invisible on the outside. So in case of healthy teeth, which for some reason do not meet the aesthetic requirements of the patient, you can consider the use of veneers.

When is it better to abandon them / think about a different solution?

In our opinion, veneers should not be used when it comes to teeth that have undergone devitalization many years ago, in patients with periodontitis, in general in all cases in which the aesthetic problem of a tooth is a result of a medical problem. Let us also add that in the case of patients with bruxism (night gnashing of teeth) if we decide on veneers, the fundamental principle will be the use of relaxation rails (regularly and absolutely every night!) Otherwise veneers will simply be destroyed very quickly…
