Veneers have become extremely popular with people from all walks of life since they provide a way to get perfectly white and straight teeth, even for people with stained, cracked or crooked teeth.
If you are thinking of getting veneers, then there are certain things you should take into account before making a final decision.
- Some preparation work is required
- Your current oral health
- Your budget
- Where you’ll have them applied
- They take some getting used to
Although veneers are one of the least invasive means of beautifying your teeth, some preparation work is required before they can be applied. A layer of your current teeth will need to be removed so that the bonding material can work effectively at attaching the veneers to them.
In addition to the preparation work that’s required; they must also be made specially for each patient by a ceramist (this usually takes 2 weeks).
Veneers are a cosmetic treatment, meaning they don’t do anything to improve the health of your teeth. For this reason it’s very important that you get a proper checkup at your regular dentist before having veneers fitted. This way you can find out if you need any urgent treatment prior to getting veneers.
Your budget is always going to play a big role in your decision. Veneers are a significant investment and although you can spread the cost, you should still ensure that you’re not putting yourself under financial strain to get them.
One of the most important things to consider when getting veneers is the clinic where you’ll have them applied. You want to choose a dentist who has a vast amount of experience in order to get the best results possible.
You should be aware that having veneers fitted might feel a little bit strange at first, particularly if they’re being used to fill in a lot of cracks and gaps in your teeth. However the vast majority of people find they get used to them very quickly.
