Veneers as an Alternative to Minor Orthodontics

Posted on 4/25/2022 by SRD Muscle Shoals
Veneers as an Alternative to Minor OrthodonticsIf you're considering minor orthodontics to correct a small issue with your teeth, don't forget about veneers as an alternative. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain bonded to the front of your teeth and can be used to fix various issues, from crooked teeth to gaps between them. Unlike orthodontics, veneers require very little adjustment time and can often be completed in just one visit to the dentist. If you're looking for a quick, easy way to improve your smile, veneers may be the perfect option for you. Here is everything you need to know about them.

What are veneers, and how do they work?

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials bonded to the fronts of teeth. They cover the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can be made from porcelain or composite resin.

Composite resin is a tooth-colored material used to restore decayed teeth and correct minor flaws in the appearance of teeth. It is also used to make veneers. Composite resin is less likely than porcelain to chip or break.

Veneers work by bonding to the front surface of your teeth. They cover the tooth completely and can correct minor flaws in the appearance of your teeth, such as chips, cracks, stains, or gaps between teeth. Veneers can also restore decayed teeth or correct minor orthodontic problems.

Who is a good candidate for veneers, and who should avoid them?

Good candidates for veneers are people with healthy teeth who want to improve the appearance of their teeth. Veneers can correct minor flaws in the appearance of your teeth, such as chips, cracks, stains, or gaps between teeth. People who should avoid veneers are those with dental decay or gum disease. In addition, veneers may not be a good option because they may not bond well to unhealthy tooth surfaces.

If you have ever considered getting braces but were worried about the appearance, then veneers might be a good alternative. Reach out to a cosmetic dentist to see if this is the right option for you.
