Veneers vs. Implants
Everyone wants to have a gorgeous smile with perfect teeth but often require professional assistance from an experienced dentist. Many individuals have damaged teeth that require expert dental restorations to create a normal looking appearance along with a strong biting surface. Two of the most popular dental restorations are veneers and implants that are meant to repair a variety of conditions. Composite veneers from Studio City Dental Center are designed for patients with conditions that include:
• Unevenly sized teeth caused by congenital abnormalities
• Worn teeth that commonly occur as people age
• Teeth that are discolored due to medications or smoking
• Chipped teeth from sport's injuries or automobile accidents
• Teeth with unusual spacing
The primary material used to make beautiful dental veneers is porcelain because it is simple to dye so it matches the color of surrounding teeth. However, veneers made of composite materials are preferred by dentists for increased strength and durability. A veneer is custom-made as a thin device that is attached with moisture resistant resin to the front of a damaged tooth. In the past, veneers were 100 percent porcelain dyed to look natural, but it would often chip when someone chewed hard foods. Today, composite materials are preferred for veneers to create a more economical and custom fitted dental appliance.
Dental implants are a newer form of restorative dentistry but are extremely popular because the devices are long lasting and extremely durable. A dental implant takes several steps to place in a patient’s mouth. Patients can have one or more dental implants placed in their mouth for a variety of reasons, including:
• Loss of teeth due to extensive decay
• A missing tooth due to a congenital defect or accident
• Discomfort from wearing dentures or dental bridges
• Bone loss in the jawbone
• Wanting a natural looking smile
Individuals wearing dentures may feel embarrassed because they must remove the appliances for cleaning. Dentures often shift or click while people talk or chew food, while dental implants remain firmly in place. If someone has healthy bones, gum tissue and ligaments in their mouth, they can often receive one or more implants within a few days. Alternatively, patients with a porous jawbone or gingivitis must have preliminary treatment that takes several months before receiving implants.
