Crowns and Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin but extremely robust porcelain shells designed to cover your tooth’s visible surface. Dental veneers are created in a Dental laboratory and attached to your teeth using resin cement.
Veneers should last for many years, but they, like your natural teeth, might shatter or break. Small chips are generally repairable, but a new veneer may be required in some cases.
Why do you need veneers?
There are many reasons that your Dentist might prescribe you Veneers. Below are some of the common reasons why you need veneers
Trauma: You might have an accident and may have cracked or chipped tooth, or your tooth may have become grey. In such cases, you need veneers.
Genetics: If your teeth are slightly crowded or you have gapped teeth, discolored spots, or unusually shaped teeth, you might need veneers.
Childhood Antibiotics: Certain medications given to you as a child may have left stains on your front teeth, though this is less common these days. Bleaching is useless in most situations, and porcelain veneers have been found to be quite beneficial in this condition.
