Veneers at Dental Arts in Seminole

If you’re looking for a simple way to give your smile a fresh new look in Seminole, veneers from Dental Arts are a great choice. Veneers are a simple option to what’s often a tough problem: unattractive teeth.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells of durable porcelain or composite resin bonded by adhesive to your teeth. They fall into the cosmetic branch of dentistry and correct problems like:

  • Worn teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Misshapen teeth (especially uneven or small teeth)
  • Gapped teeth, especially between the front teeth

Most kinds of veneers require some of the tooth surfaces to be shaved off for a perfect fit. About half of a millimeter is removed. As we noted, veneers are made of porcelain or composite resin. Both custom-made and fitted for your teeth. Here are some more advantages of each type:

Porcelain veneers:

  • don’t stain easily
  • strong
  • very durable
  • look like natural teeth

Composite resin veneers

A composite resin veneer is made from a resinous material tinted to look just like a natural tooth.

  • Require less tooth enamel to be removed compared to porcelain veneers
  • Are less expensive than porcelain
  • Easy to fit—you might need just one visit to Dental Arts
  • Easier to repair than porcelain. Composite veneers can be repaired quickly, too.
  • A little less durable than porcelain veneers

Veneers still require you to practice consistent good oral hygiene. They are not able to protect your teeth 100% from cavities.

Who can have veneers?

Your teeth must be healthy before you have veneers placed. You must have healthy gums as well. Your dentist at Dental Arts in Seminole will treat you for any pre-existing tooth or gum issue before going on with veneers.

Veneers are durable but not indestructible. Patients who grind their teeth or suffer from chronic bruxism may chip or even break their veneers. However, you can wear a plastic dental night guard to prevent tooth grinding.

Because your dentist must remove surface enamel to place your veneers, they’re a permanent fixture. However, veneers can last up to ten years before needing replacement. Of course, you’ll need to keep brushing and flossing daily.
