Cosmetic dentistry is a popular choice within the world of “beautification:” and rightly so – there is a lot to be said for a beautiful, white, straight smile. And there are also a lot of options as to how one can improve their smile. Two of which include dental bridges and dental veneers …so we wanted to help you understand … “The Difference Between Dental Bridges and Veneers”.
Dental Bridges Explained
If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, not only can it be a cause for a poor self-image, but it may also be affecting your chewing and speaking too.
The good news about modern dentistry is that there are options to help restore your smile. Dental bridges are sometimes referred to as a “fixed denture”, but overall a bridge offers a solution for missing teeth – replacing them with artificial teeth, which helps maintain the shape of your face as well as alleviates any stress created within your bite.
The success of your bridge depends on the foundation of its surrounding teeth, and your dentist will offer you recommendations based on that foundation.
It is very important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong, which is why a dental bridge is important to replace missing teeth – along with benefiting from the esthetic solution a bridge offers to missing teeth.
Dental Veneers Revealed
Veneers are artificial coverings built to cover the forward (labial or buccal) surface of the tooth. They are usually a dental treatment offered for aesthetic purposes only, as they don’t provide a solution to other structural concerns or issues.
So if you are curious about veneers, you should talk to a dental professional about them before getting your heart set on veneers being a solution to such things as crooked teeth or a misaligned bite.
