5 Best Teeth Covers for Damaged Teeth
Your smile is a significant part of your overall appearance. When your teeth look good, you're more likely to smile more often and be more confident when speaking, smiling, and laughing around others. This can boost your self-esteem and confidence and improve people's perceptions of you. Unfortunately, most people aren't lucky enough to have picture-perfect teeth.
The good news? You can cover your imperfections and restore your smile with teeth covers. These cosmetic applications can conceal numerous cosmetic flaws, including crooked teeth, crowded teeth, stained teeth, worn-down teeth, and gapped teeth.
What Are My Options When It Comes To Teeth Covers?
There are multiple teeth cover options to consider that can get your teeth looking top-notch, and deciding which option is best for you depends on the type and extent of damage to your teeth, as well as other factors such as how long you want the enhancement to last and what fits in your budget. Here are the best options for teeth covers.
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells made from porcelain that is permanently bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. They can be used to treat several cosmetic concerns, including uneven, chipped, broken, worn, discolored, or smaller-than-average teeth.
Unlike snap-on veneers, your tooth enamel will have to be filed down to create space for the veneers so that your teeth look natural. However, less tooth enamel needs to be removed than with a crown. To get porcelain veneers, you have to go to the dentist who will make your tooth impression or mold. The impression is sent to a dental lab that custom-makes the porcelain veneers to fit your teeth.
Porcelain veneers offer several benefits, including:
- They provide a natural tooth appearance
- Gums tolerate porcelain well
- Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant
- You can select a color to make dark teeth appear whiter
Inlays and Onlays
Also known as partial crowns, inlays and onlays are ideal for people looking to repair a specific kind of damage to their teeth. Inlays can be alternatives for traditional metal fillings, while onlays can repair more intensive damage done to teeth. An inlay, which is similar to a filling, is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth. An onlay is a more substantial reconstruction, similar to the inlay but extending out over one or more of the tooth's cusps.
Inlays and onlays can be made from tooth-colored material like porcelain or composite resin and thus blend in with the rest of your teeth. They're bonded to the damaged area of the tooth, which helps to seal them to your teeth and improve their overall strength.
Also known as dental bonding, composite bonding is a technique that adds material to your teeth to alter or supplement their shape. This putty-like material, which is customizable to match the shade of your natural teeth, can be manipulated and molded to fill gaps and cavities, repair chips or cracks, close gaps between your teeth, build up the worn-down edges of teeth and balance the aesthetic of the smile.
Composite bonding can be completed in a single visit to the dentist. To apply composite, the dentist only needs to roughen the tooth surface to aid the bonding process. This means less of your natural tooth is removed than alternatives such as crowns and veneers. Once the composite has been applied, it is set using a curing light. The dentist will then shape the tooth and polish it to achieve a natural luster, leaving you with a smile you can proudly show off. Cosmetic bonding is a cost-effective solution because it's considerably less expensive than other cosmetic dental procedures, such as crowns and veneers.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth, restoring its shape and size, strength and improving its appearance. Dental crowns can be made from different materials, including porcelain, ceramic, zirconia, composite resin, and metal.
You may need a dental crown for several reasons, including:
- Holding a dental bridge in place
- Protecting a weak tooth (possibly from decay) from breaking or keeping the weak tooth together if parts of it are cracked
- Covering a tooth that's been treated with a root canal
- Restoring a broken tooth or a severely worn down tooth
- Covering misshapen or severely discolored teeth
- Covering and supporting a tooth with a large filling and not much tooth remaining
- Covering a dental implant
Snap-on veneers are a non-permanent option to traditional dental veneers. They are an excellent solution for people who want a beautiful smile but do not want to commit to permanent veneers. Snap-on veneers fit over the top of your teeth like a mouthguard. When fitted correctly, a snapping sound is made when the veneer wraps around the teeth. Snap-on veneers can cover up several dental issues, including:
- Missing teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Yellow teeth
- Stained teeth
It is absolutely pain-free, no anesthesia is needed, and there is no permanent alteration to the natural tooth structure, as no drilling is necessary. One significant advantage of snap-on veneers is that they can be conveniently removed whenever you prefer without the help of a dental professional. They're also a lot more affordable than traditional veneers.
