Dental Veneers – How Can They Benefit You?

Tariq Drabu, the owner of the successful Langley Dental Practice, is a leading dentist and specialist oral surgeon. He has advised that dental veneers are effective options for those who are suffering with a number of cosmetic dental imperfections that want to improve their smile appearance and boost their confidence.

What Can Dental Veneers Be Used for?

The first question asked by patients is why should they choose dental veneers. Tariq Drabu advised that they use dental veneers for a number of different scenarios to help patients improve their smile and confidence in the long run. The dental veneers can be used for:
  • Misaligned teeth – teeth that are not one hundred percent uniform in the mouth.
  • Chipped teeth – rather than extracting the tooth, the veneer can cover the chip and provide a natural finish.
  • Gaps in the teeth – patients who have a gap in their front teeth may want to hide the gap, the veneer can provide this option.
  • Discoloured teeth – those with badly stained teeth may choose veneers to hide the unwelcome stains.
  • Lightening – veneers can also be used to lighten the tooth colour on a permanent basis.

What are Veneers?

Dr Tariq Drabu advised that anyone thinking of veneers need to know what these are, how they work along with the negative implications involved.

Tariq Drabu stated that a dental veneer is a porcelain shell which is wafer thin and used to cover the front of the tooth. The process is relatively simple, the veneers are made based on a mould of the patients mouth to ensure that they are correct and can be used on one or all of the teeth with ease and confidence.

He did advise that patients need to be aware that in order to fit the veneers, some of the hard enamel which coats the tooth needs to be removed. The enamel is the hardest substance in the body and protects the delicate dentine inside the tooth. Enamel does not regrow, which means once the process is started for veneers, you can never go back and have them removed. He wants patients to understand this, as this is the only negative implication and should the veneer break, it must be replaced.

Once some of the enamel has been removed the veneer is bonded into place on the front of the tooth to provide a beautiful smile.
