Is It Obvious That I Have Veneers?
Veneers are an excellent choice to improve the way your smile looks. They are able to cover a wide variety of cosmetic concerns, such as discoloration, misshapen or irregularly-sized teeth, and even minor chips or cracks.
However, if you are thinking about getting veneers, you may be wondering what the result is going to look like. Will other people be able to tell you have veneers?
Well, the short answer is no. Veneers have come a long way over the years, and they can provide natural-looking results.
Keep on reading to understand how veneers work, and why nobody will be able to tell you’re wearing them.
What Are Veneers and How Do They Work?
Veneers are essentially a thin layer of porcelain that gets attached to the front surface of the natural tooth. Think of them as new faces for your teeth.
When getting veneers, the dentist will need to shave a tiny bit of the tooth’s surface to create a rough texture. This allows the veneers to properly bond with the tooth and not fall.
With proper care, veneers can last for 10-15 years, and even more. Additionally, though enamel-shaving can sound scary, the amount is so small that you will not affect your tooth’s integrity, make them weaker, or more sensitive.
Are Veneers Visible?
This depends. For example, if you want a full-smile makeover, of course, the results will be more noticeable, but only for yourself and the people who know you. New people will likely not be able to tell you have veneers on.
Veneers cover the individual tooth, so they are much better at blending in than other dental prosthetics like dentures. If you were worried veneers offer the same look as dentures, don’t be.
Moreover, veneers can be tailored to your specific needs and expectations. Some patients only need 1-2 veneers, for example, to close the gap between two teeth. In these cases, the veneers are made to match the color and shape of the patient’s natural teeth, leading to an unnoticeable treatment.
Are Veneers Right for You?
Veneers can provide lots of great benefits:
- Natural-looking results
- Full smile makeovers
- Durable results (10-15 years)
- Can improve tooth strength, etc.
However, veneers are also a commitment, since they are irreversible. This means that if the veneers break, they will need to be replaced because you will not be able to go back to your natural smile.
