The good news is that the teeth are basically in good health. There is no need for dealing with cavities, there is no tooth crowding the others, and there is no overbite or underbite to correct. Even so, the patient is not completely happy with the look of the teeth. The team at the dental office in Trumbull CT may suggest the use of dental veneers. Here are some of the reasons why this approach may be perfect for the patient.
What are Veneers?
Think of veneers as a thin shell that helps to change the look of the teeth. The process itself is non-invasive, carries a very little chance of pain, and can do a great deal to improve the appearance. The nice thing is that the application of the veneers takes less time than many other types of dental procedures.
What Issues Can Veneers Correct?
Veneers can be used to provide a brighter look to the teeth. This approach works well when the yellowing is mainly due to age and not because of the types of food and drink the patient ingests regularly. Teeth that look somewhat dull can be covered with the veneers and make the teeth look like they did in decades past.
Those veneers are also helpful if the patient has tiny spaces in between some of the teeth. By applying veneers to the teeth on each side of that gap, it’s filled in easily and still maintains the look of naturally spaced teeth.
In some cases, veneers are also helpful with correcting minor chipping and possibly some cracking. Along with adding strength to the affected teeth, the veneers also provide a smooth appearance that covers the small defect without having to undergo more intensive dental procedures.
While veneers are not the solution for everyone, they are worth considering in certain cases.
