Veneers are often held up as a form of cosmetics. Indeed they are, but cosmetic medicine as it applies to veneers boca raton fl applications is nothing new. People often misunderstand the term ‘cosmetics’ believing it to be a form of vanity, if applied. Not that that has ever stopped anyone. Cosmetic medicine is essential as a form of both healing and protection. In dentistry terms, chipped, worn or stained teeth cannot be left exposed. Nor can gapped or slightly misaligned teeth. Apart from the poor appearance, leaving such deficiencies as is becomes a breeding ground for germs, disease and bacteria.
Generally speaking, teeth that are not perfectly aligned would need extensive dental work. But dental technologists argue to the contrary. It is not always necessary. Treatments for gum disease and gum recessions even may benefit from nothing more than porcelain veneer applications. Of course, the dentist still needs to be the better judge of whether his or her patient will qualify for such an application. Nevertheless, thin pieces of porcelain or plastic even are barely invasive, acting as forms of protection rather, over and above enhancing the physical appearance of the patient. Porcelain veneers are protective coverings that cover chips, cracks or stains.
But as far as available stain removal procedures go, it might serve the patient better to first see whether the dentist can remove those stains. If of course stain removal is not possible then veneers can be considered as the last resort. They are customized cosmetic enhancements that will be permanently bonded to teeth. They are able to provide greater resistance to discolorations than natural teeth would. Finally, made from highly durable porcelain material, they are able to restore the height, width and color of original teeth.
