Restorative Options for Your Smile
There are many options you can think about to fix problems with your smile. While veneers, which are ultra-thin layers of either resin or porcelain that cover teeth, are one way to fix cosmetic issues with teeth, they are not your only option. Patients who opt to get veneers are opting to permanently alter their teeth, which may not be the best choice for you. Also, veneers are suitable when adults need total coverage of either the upper teeth or the lower teeth.
But not all adults need veneers. They may have a single tooth that is broken. In that case, the problem could be fixed with a crown. They might also have two or three broken teeth, and instead of veneers, they could opt for a dental bridge to replace a few teeth that are broken or missing.
In addition, for some chips on teeth, a simple filling or bonding procedure can restore one tooth or a few teeth with small defects to their original luster. While in the past, fillings and bondings were not made to match your teeth, today's technology allows for teeth to be filled in perfectly.
