Gum disease often leads to receding gums, which can be damaging both in terms of appearance and oral health. Dental veneers are a great way to improve your smile after you have experienced gum recession. There is no way to grow back gums that have been receding, and veneers are the most minimally invasive option for this. Gum veneers are different that the porcelain veneers that improve the look of teeth.
Gum Disease and Receding Gums
Gum disease is the most common cause of gum recession; however, genetics, hormonal changes, diabetes, smoking, and abrasive tooth brushing can also lead to receding gums. However, the most common is gum disease, which is likely a result of poor dental hygiene or lack of an appropriate oral care routine. Periodontists have improved the methods of treating lost gum tissue, and gum veneers are a perfect nonsurgical option. The rest of the treatments for receding gumlines are surgical, but gum veneers can increase the overall health of your mouth and gums while enhancing the looks of your smile.
Types of Gum Veneers
There are two types of gum veneers, removable and fixed. Like dentures, gingival veneers can be made from acrylic, composite resin, or porcelain. These types of veneers are also removable and can be cleaned each night like dentures that are for your teeth. The other type of gum veneers are fixed veneers. These are made of ceramic material and stay permanently in your mouth. Fixed veneers are less common than the removable ones, and they can be more challenging to clean.
Gum veneers are a great option when considering treatment for gum recession. Gum veneers may also increase the health of your gums by removing any bacteria that was previously there. If you have questions about treatment for gum disease, or if veneers are right for you, please call our offices and our periodontists can help.
