How  do dental implants differ from veneers? Newington, CT


Dental implants- 

Dental implants  replace teeth that are damaged or lost due to gum disease, tooth decay or trauma.  Made of titanium,  they  are the best option for replacing  missing natural teeth.

The dental implant surgery is a long procedure  completed in two stages. In the first stage, the root form is placed in the jaw by  a minor surgery and in the  second stage the artificial tooth is placed on the root form. The whole treatment procedure may take many sittings with your dentist.  Here are some of the benefits of using dental implants:

  • Fixed directly to the jaw so that they can function just like normal teeth.
  • Can be used for single missing tooth or multiple teeth.
  • Incorporated into the jaw bone, so the bone remains intact, thereby  preventing  jaw bones from 

The most important advantage of  dental implants is that they are a permanent solution for missing teeth.

Dental veneers- 

Dental veneer is a cosmetic dental treatment, mainly meant for improving smile and the visual look of teeth. Typically it is a cover or shell, made up of porcelain or composite material.  They are   mostly employed to seal the gaps between teeth, safeguard the tooth enamel and smoothen the teeth surface.

Here are some of the benefits of using dental veneers:

  • It does not involve preparations such as teeth cutting, hence they require fewer sittings with your dentist.
  • They are a good option for cracked, chipped  or rough teeth.
  • They come in different shades,  therefore their color can be matched with your natural teeth.

Dental implants and dental veneers are meant for two different purposes and hence they offer different benefits  to the patients.
