Non-Cosmetic Reasons to Consider Veneers

Veneers aren't solely for cosmetic uses. They can also help protect your oral health and prevent the development of severe disorders. In fact, dental veneers can potentially save you thousands of dollars in costly dental fees. Do you want to restore your smile and keep your teeth healthy? You should consider dental veneers.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are personalized shells specially designed to cover the front of your teeth. What's so great about them is they're usually customized to match the color of your teeth, so they look natural. Dental veneers are generally considered a cosmetic procedure because they're typically used to improve the appearance of your smile. Here are a few reasons why people get dental veneers:

Most of these reasons, as you can tell, are cosmetic in nature. They address issues that cause people to hide their smiles. Getting dental veneers for cosmetic reasons can restore a beautiful smile, but that’s not the only reason people opt for them. 

Dental veneers for non-cosmetic purposes

In addition to addressing cosmetic concerns, dental veneers can also improve your oral health and help prevent serious oral diseases from occurring.

Protecting your teeth’s enamel

Worn down enamel can expose you to a plethora of oral diseases. Most importantly, worn down enamel can leave your teeth vulnerable to decay and germs, both of which can lead to serious problems. Dental veneers can provide an extra layer of protection to your teeth if you suffer from worn down enamel. They can also serve as a buffer between your teeth and possible decay.

Repairing misaligned teeth

Misaligned teeth are far more than a mere cosmetic issue. They can have severe ramifications for the structural integrity of your jaw. Misaligned teeth can lead to serious disorders, such as temporomandibular joint disease, which is usually accompanied by severe headaches. Dental veneers can help minimize this risk, by joining all your teeth together under the veneer covering.

Fixing cracked teeth

At first thought, cracked teeth may appear to be a cosmetic issue, but cracked teeth can cause severe harm to your oral health. Small cracks in your teeth may not be severe enough for a root canal, but they can expose your teeth to harmful bacteria. Dental veneers help with this issue by simply using veneers to seal the cracks.

Advantages of dental veneers

The good news is even if you're using dental veneers for non-cosmetic purposes, they still come with similar advantages. Here are a few universal benefits of porcelain veneers:
