Non-cosmetic reasons to consider veneers by Dentist Glendale

Repair Superficial Cracks

There are several reasons why teeth get cracked. Some cracks are very severe, threatening the tooth’s integrity and considerably weakening the tooth. Generally, these teeth are required to be covered with a crown that surrounds the entire tooth to put off from breaking off totally. However, all cracks aren’t so severe. Not all cracks threaten the tooth’s integrity. Any opening in your tooth provides a passageway for bacteria that can lead to decay and severe infections. If you don’t treat and close up the break, you can wind up needing a root canal or even pulling out.

Veneers are bonded to the surface of a tooth. Most importantly, they can be very effective in sealing off a crack, to ensure that bacteria can’t enter the tooth. In addition, the porcelain material helps the tooth in getting strong to prevent further damage. While a crown requires considerable “grinding down” of the existing tooth to make room for the re-establishment. A veneer necessitates only a small amount of tooth material to be removed.

Restore Damaged Enamel

Your tooth enamel provides a rigid outer “cover” for your teeth. This keeps out germs and decay. However, even though enamel is sturdy, it can still wear away and wear away in due course. Some enamel wear occurs because of normal wear and tear. The foods we eat damage our enamel. Particularly foods high in acids — and our oral hygiene behavior. Many have naturally thin enamel or enamel that wears more easily. Regardless of what causes your enamel to wear away, the outcome is the same. Your teeth are exposed to a much greater threat of decomposing.

Porcelain veneers can be an outstanding way to reinstate damaged enamel. Resting on the tooth surface, the tough porcelain veneer serves the same function as your enamel. This provides a hidden barrier to decay- and disease-causing bacteria. Besides, porcelain is opposed to acid erosion.

Fill in Gaps and Uneven Spacing

At times, you get a hollow space on the chewing surfaces of your teeth. Chiefly the larger molars in the backside of your mouth. However, often, cavities form in between teeth. This is especially for the teeth in the front of your mouth. The break between teeth makes it a lot easier for bacteria to reach the interproximal areas. Sticky plaque and hard tartar deposits assemble on the surfaces between teeth. Plaque and tartar provide defensive “harbors” for decay-causing bacteria. Accordingly, your risk for cavities can increase considerably. Besides, gaps between teeth can let acids from foods break through the enamel in the interproximal area; this means it’s even easier for decay to start.

Veneers are habitually used to “seal” the breach between teeth. This subsequently, makes it a lot harder for tartar, plaque, and decay-causing bacteria to set up shop. Besides, when your teeth are uniformly spaced, it’s fairly easier to take care of your teeth and gums. You can accordingly hold off cavities and gum disease, too.
