If your front teeth are discolored, chipped, slightly misaligned, developing gaps, or decaying, you might consider veneers to cover up those hard-to-solve problems. A veneer is made to go over the front side of your front teeth while looking completely natural and not feeling bothersome. Nevertheless, you should consider all the facts, because once you get a veneer, you cannot undo the procedure.
Veneers are usually made of porcelain, though some are made of a composite resin. Either option should have the look of your natural front teeth while covering up aspects that can appear unsightly, such as discolorations, gaps, chippings, or tooth decay. They can also help correct slight misalignments, but not anything major.
They will also be custom-made for you. The dentist makes an impression of your teeth so he can get the right fit. Even when he puts the veneers on, the dentist tries to ensure that they will fit properly and comfortably.
Of course, you should know that once this decision is made, there is no going back. The dentist must remove part of your enamel in order to fit the veneer on properly, and this enamel cannot come back. You would need the veneers to protect those areas from then on.
Although it is rare, the veneers themselves can get stained. You may want to avoid having coffee, red wine, and others staining foods or drink in excess to protect the beauty of your veneers. If your veneers do become strained, they can be replaced by our doctor.
