They are used when one or more teeth are not structurally compromised but unsightly. Veneers are a thin porcelain layer that are placed over the buccal side (the side that is facing out of your mouth) of your existing teeth. These veneers are frequently used by celebrities, politicians, and other public people, to give them a reassuring, luminous smile. They are also used by people who have stained teeth from drinking alcohol, or smoking, coffee, chocolate, tea, or even red fruits and berries.
Veneers are used in all of the same instances that any other facet of cosmetic dentistry is used, when one wants to enhance existing teeth. They are frequently used as a non-invasive, non-surgical method to enhance your smile. They are a very good alternative to bridges, crowns and dental implants, because there is no reason to extract or alter a tooth that has no problems other than being visually unappealing. Extractions and such can cause problems with your jaw bones, and besides, there is simply no reason to lose one of your healthy, existing teeth.
Veneers can also be used to correct a minor positioning problem with one tooth. If your teeth are otherwise in a good position it might be a bad idea to use orthodontics to realign everything just because one tooth is just a little off. It’s not a usual scenario, but for those who really need a perfect smile it does the job.
Whether one tooth or a dozen, veneers are the method of choice to brighten any smile.
