Dental veneers and dental bridges are both known as dental restoration. Dental restoration, sometimes called a dental filling is meant to bring back the morphology, integrity and function of tooth structure that is missing. Outside trauma or caries (cavities or decay in the tooth) are usually the reason for structural loss in a tooth. Dental veneers and bridges can help people with this problem.

A veneer is known as a fine layer of material that is put over the surface of a tooth. This can be for either the protection of the tooth surface that is damaged, or it can be to better the tooth’s aesthetics. Dental veneers rely on two different kinds of material for construction. A composite veneer is made from synthetic resin and might be directly put inside the patient’s mouth and then bonded later. By contrast, if a veneer is made out of porcelain, it is indirectly fabricated.

This type of dental restoration is significant for the cosmetic dental industry. Veneers have various uses. For example, a dentist can use just one to improve one tooth that might have been either discoloured or fractured. He may also use veneers on many teeth to generate a Hollywood type of smile.

Unlike dental veneers, a dental bridge is used to replace one’s missing tooth by way of being permanently joined to either dental implants or adjacent teeth. The kinds of bridges can vary, largely based upon their anchoring to adjacent teeth and how they are fabricated. Bridges are commonly created by using the indirect method of restoration, yet they can also be fashioned directly in one’s mouth with composite resin.

Dental veneers and dental bridges are two common kinds of dental restoration. They are very useful and a comfort to people who have problems with their teeth. These can be less serious problems like cavities or missing tooth structure, or they can be more serious issues like a missing tooth. Both types of dental restoration are common in the dental industry and something that the dentists at our Blackburn dental clinic have a lot of experience with.
