dental veneers

Porcelain dental veneers are prosthetics options that you can receive for whatever cosmetic issue you may have. When you visit your dentist, the veneers treatment will be discussed to you at length so that you may gain a better understanding of what needs to be done. You present your dentist with your issues and he or she in turn will suggest options. If porcelain veneers are proposed to you, know that this procedure will require some reduction on the facial surface, so that a prosthetic covering made of porcelain may be fabricated and then luted over it.

Are you thinking of getting dental veneers? Dental experts continue to prescribe it as an option for various cosmetics needs. Its contributions include the following:

Aesthetics

The aesthetic results that one can enjoy with porcelain veneers dental prosthetics are just superb. It does not matter if you are trying to restore just one tooth, a few or all; the shade can be manipulated so that it matches any existing teeth and you are given the option to go a shade lighter, if you think that it is the solution for you problems.

Retention

When your dentist gives a patient veneers, he follows very strict guidelines that should conform to the retentive capabilities of porcelain veneers. Dental cements, self-curing or light curing, are used; and to ensure retention, ample thickness of the material should be made so the tooth reduction on the facial and biting surfaces need are sufficiently done.

Cost

Porcelain veneers are quite costly. The technique and artistry involved is much too complicated, explaining the heightened price. In comparison, however, to the likes of dental bondings or teeth whitening where results are not permanent and not as reliable, the extra fee you pay becomes well worth every penny spent.

Tooth Preservation

While there is some tooth reduction required in the fabrication of porcelain veneers, it is rather minimal so much of the tooth’s health is preserved. Compared to dental crowns where all-around surface reduction is performed, the drilling is limited to the facial and the incisal surfaces, so the tooth is spared from unnecessary damage.Strength

Porcelain is of considerable strength. Compared to other materials that dentist Palo Alto use in their office, porcelain is durable. The other materials used are ceramic and composite resin; both provide impressive aesthetic results being tooth-colored, so they may be matched with the natural color of any existing teeth, but these two materials cannot in any way compared to the strength and durability of porcelain as a material of choice for your veneers.

Speed of Results

Porcelain veneers are sometimes obtained in lieu of orthodontics for the correction of minor misalignments. Orthodontic treatments carried out through dental braces or Invisalign takes some time, often years, to complete but patients are able to obtain transformational results through porcelain veneers almost instantly. This means that you can enjoy a more beautiful smile, without the need to endure the long treatment process.

    dental restorations

    People lose their natural teeth for many reasons, including accidental trauma, oral diseases, and significant tooth decay. Whether you’re missing a single tooth or all of your teeth, you’re probably anxious to replace missing teeth permanently. Not only is this more aesthetically pleasing, it’s also better for your long-term oral health. That is because existing teeth tend to shift towards open spots and cause problems with bite and alignment. Replacement teeth also restore your speaking and chewing ability in addition to preventing your face from sagging.

    Working with Our Dentists to Select the Right Type of Dental Restorations

    Once you have made the decision to restore your missing teeth, it can be difficult to know the types of dentures that are right for you. If you no longer have any of your natural teeth, you will need complete dentures to restore full mouth functioning and disguise the complete tooth loss. Partial dentures are appropriate when you still have some or most of your natural teeth.

    Denture types can be further classified into immediate and conventional. With immediate dentures, your dentist at Smiles of Elgin prepares your restoration in advance. This enables him to place the dentures right away after you have teeth extracted. You do need to return to have adjustments made to your dentures after your gum tissues have had more of a chance to heal. Your dentist can place conventional dentures four to six weeks after you lost your last tooth. He will provide you with a temporary restoration in the meantime.

    Dental implants are replacement teeth that remain in your mouth permanently. Your dentist first installs artificial roots made of titanium and then allows several weeks to months for healing to take place. You can wear removable dentures while your wait. Once the gums and jaw have healed and your new roots have integrated with existing jaw bone, it’s time for your dentist to attach your replacement teeth.

    Please schedule an appointment with Smiles of Elgin to learn more about the type of dental restoration that is right for you.
