Dental VeneersWhy select dental veneers from Cosmopolitan Dentistry to fix your teeth?

There are many reasons to choose dental veneers over some of the other devices available to help you repair your teeth. When you are making a decision of this magnitude, you should definitely consider all the factors and ask yourself some important questions. The first thing we should point out is that dental veneers are one of the most effective and versatile of all the solutions available. The questions that people usually ask themselves when deciding how get their teeth repaired include what extent of work needs to be done, what cost is involved, how long the treatment is going to take, and how long will the treatment last. In most of these categories, we have found that dental veneers do very well, so we encourage you to talk a dental veneers specialist before you begin the process of fixing your teeth. There is a popular misconception that dental veneers were exclusively for teeth whitening. While there is no doubt that dental veneers can do an exceptional job with teeth whitening, succeeding where sometimes traditional whitening techniques fail, this is only one of the many things a veneer treatment can do. With veneers, Cosmopolitan Dentistry treats patients who have damaged teeth, including cracks, breaks, and chips. We also use veneers to solve minor bite issues. If the enamel of your tooth is discolored because of decay, this is another thing veneers can resolve for you. One thing you will want to keep in mind when getting veneers is that they are a permanent treatment, as we will need to shave away a portion of the enamel and attach the veneers using dental cement.

Why are dental veneers made of porcelain?

Dentists and dental scientist are always looking for new and innovative ways to improve the quality of your teeth. This includes finding materials that will work well for prosthetics and other devices used in dentistry. Porcelain is a material that made the jump from engineering into the medical field. This is because porcelain has three qualities Cosmopolitan Dentistry looks for when we are seeking a new material. Another material that has made the jump in much the same way as porcelain is titanium, which is used in the placement of dental implants today. The three things a material needs to have are biocompatibility, aesthetics, and insolubility.

Biocompatibility refers to the ability of a material to meld with the natural host. If the tissue in the body rejects a substance, it cannot be used successfully to create prosthetic devices or indeed, any device that needs to stay in the body for a prolonged period of time. Porcelain is extremely biocompatible.

Insolubility is important for any material being used to repair teeth, because of the constant exposure to saliva in the mouth. Porcelain is both extremely hard and completely insoluble, which makes it a great fit for oral devices.

Finally, there is aesthetics. Porcelain looks and feels like natural enamel when attached in the form of dental veneers. When you are getting front-facing teeth repaired, this is a key component as to why porcelain is used to make dental veneers.
