Veneers are a quick and easy way to improve the look of your smile. They can help to even out the shape and size of teeth while giving them bright white appearance too. However, it's reasonable to be concerned before putting something artificial into your mouth, even if it is approved by dentists. If you're worried that your veneers will feel fake to you, here's why you shouldn't worry.
Dental veneers are made out of the same porcelain that standard dental correction products are, like crowns. Porcelain is typically used because it's very similar-looking to real teeth, as it has the same luster and shine of teeth while also having the strength necessary to serve as a replacement tooth. Using this material is an important part of making veneers feel and look as comfortable and realistic as possible.
From the appearance alone, you should not be able to notice any difference between veneers and a real set of healthy, white teeth.
Since veneers are made out of porcelain, you can expect the surface to feel like a real tooth, too. Porcelain tends to be slick and smooth, just like real teeth are, especially once it's in your mouth. With the distribution of saliva, you should not be able to notice a difference between the veneers on the front of your teeth and the backs of your real teeth. Over time, you'll likely gradually forget that the veneers are even there because they will feel so real in your mouth.
Veneers are typically made to be very thin. However, some dentists will also file down teeth somewhat in order to ensure that the veneers fit properly. This means that the end result will be that the depth of your tooth will be the same after getting veneers as it was before having them. You shouldn't expect your teeth to feel thicker or too wide after getting veneers.
Veneers are designed not only to provide a cosmetic solution to a number of dental problems but also with your comfort in mind. If you have concerns about how veneers will feel or look, don't be afraid to talk to your cosmetic dentist to find out more. They can show you example veneers and photos of people who've gotten them and even allow you to touch them so you can tell how similar to real teeth they feel.
