Veneers are dental appliances that are bonded to the frontal surface of the teeth. They are made from ceramic and can be customized to match the color and contour of the teeth, perfectly. They are widely used by dentists to treat teeth that are either chipped, worn out, cracked or severely discolored.
At Smile Makers Dental Care, we use the best quality dental-grade ceramic material to fabricate our veneers. Dr. Ewing is an experienced dentist who has served the people of Concord for several years now and is definitely one of the most popular cosmetic and restorative dentists in the area.
What can veneers be used for?
Veneers are used by dentists to treat the following conditions:
Excessively spaced teeth: Gaps or spacing is a type of malocclusion where the adjoining teeth naturally appear spaced far from each other. It is characterized by unpleasant gaps between the frontal teeth. By bonding veneers to the frontal surface of such teeth, we can eliminate the appearance of gaps and make them look perfectly spaced.
Worn out teeth: Bruxism is an oral condition where the patient tends to grind their teeth during sleep. This is an involuntary action and can lead to excessive wearing of the enamel, making them look too short. Crown lengthening is a procedure where we bond restorations to the teeth to bring them back to their ideal size, shape, and contour.
Chipped teeth:Biting onto something that’s hard or taking a hard blow to the mouth could result in the chipping of the teeth. The teeth can potentially lose a certain edge, making them look misshapen. Restoring such teeth with dental veneers and getting them polished can make teeth appear as good as new, thereby bringing the damaged teeth back to their ideal shape.
Cracked teeth:Sports injuries and bad falls can have a major impact on the structure and strength of the teeth. In such cases, the teeth may sometimes crack and give way to the microbes in the mouth. This can potentially cause a root canal infection and even put teeth at risk of failing. Dental veneers can help to hold the tooth intact and prevent it from crumbling under severe stresses.
Severely discolored teeth: Eating colored foods, consuming a lot of beverages such as tea, coffee, aerated drinks along with irregular and improper brushing of teeth, etc. can make the teeth appear stained and discolored. When the extent of discoloration is too bad, teeth whitening solutions may not always give the best results. In such cases, veneers can be bonded to the surface of highly stained teeth to improve their color and give them a makeover.
