Procedure for Getting a Dental Veneer

Advantages of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers offer the following advantages:
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Veneers last between 7 and 15 years, after which they need to be replaced.
Do Dental Veneers Require Special Care?
Porcelain veneers do not require any special care. Brush your teeth, floss, and rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash as you normally would. Even though veneers can resist stains, it is recommended to avoid stain-causing beverages including coffee, tea, or red wine.
Alternatives to Dental Veneers
Alternatives to dental veneers include bonding and crowns. Veneers are suitable for people who want to completely change the shape of their teeth.
A crown is also known as a cap that covers the entire tooth-surface, restoring it to its original size and shape. A crown strengthens and protects the tooth structure that cannot be repaired with fillings or other types of restorations. You need to place a crown if you have broken or fractured teeth, decay, cosmetic enhancement, root canal treatment, or large fillings. We use porcelain that is durable and aesthetically pleasing. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and colour of your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting, and beautiful smile.
Crowns made of zirconia are quite common these days. This is because of its strength and durability. Zirconia-based crowns also last longer than other metal-based crowns. If you consider the amount of pressure you put on your teeth while chewing, longevity of crowns prove vital and crowns made out of zirconia, known as monolithic zirconia crowns are highly durable. Porcelain crowns are also offered as an alternative.
If you are missing teeth or have trouble biting food, speaking, or even chewing, then a bridge might be your go-to choice. A dental bridge is a non-removable appliance and an excellent way to replace missing teeth. There are several types of bridges you may choose from. The traditional bridge is the most popular one in the market and is made up of porcelain fused to metal. Bridges fill in the gaps between your natural-looking artificial teeth and natural teeth, and enhance the appearance of your smile. Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years. However, they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons for a fixed bridge includes maintaining facial shape, preventing teeth from drifting out of position, restoring speaking and chewing ability, filling the space, restoring your smile, and upgrading from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
Many patients believe that removing a problematic tooth is an ideal dental solution. But what patients don’t understand is that extracting a tooth will not only be more costly but can also cause significant problems for the adjacent teeth. Having a root canal done on a tooth is the treatment of choice to save a tooth that otherwise would be lost. Root canal is a highly successful treatment and usually lasts a lifetime, although, a tooth will have to be re-treated due to new infections.
