Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

by Kassandra Silva (SU)

If you have cracked, chipped, misshapen, discolored, or gapped teeth, porcelain veneers can help you feel more confident every time you smile. Porcelain veneers go over the front of the tooth to improve appearance, and are made of very thin and durable materials custom-tailored to match your teeth. This dental solution addresses a range of cosmetic issues.

Let’s explore the features of porcelain veneers, and find out why patients nationwide are enjoying the benefits these dental solutions bring.

#1 Natural-looking

You may think that bonding something to your teeth will end up looking unnatural – but this is far from the case with porcelain veneers. To prepare the area for bonding, the dentist shaves off a bit of enamel to create space for the porcelain veneers – removing only a minimal amount of enamel in the process. In addition, porcelain veneers are made of very thin material, so they don’t carry weight and feel like natural teeth once in place. Since they’re based on impressions of each individual patient, the shape and color of porcelain veneers are made to match your specific teeth. Therefore, the dentist can ensure that porcelain veneers look so natural that strangers will not be able to tell the difference.

#2 Low Maintenance

Porcelain veneers allow you to eat and talk normally. Outside of practicing good oral hygiene as you otherwise would, patients do not have to adjust their daily routines for them. In fact, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant. They are also able to resist decay. Provided you care for them as you would your natural teeth and undergo your regular professional cleaning, porcelain veneers can last for up to 15 years. As with normal teeth, caution should still be exercised when biting down on hard foods and consuming food and drinks that cause staining.

#3 Quickly Regain Confidence in Your Smile 

Porcelain veneers can restore your smile in one to two sessions. The process of getting veneers is very straightforward: the dentist takes impressions of your teeth and crafts the veneers, before then placing them on your teeth. The procedure is minimally invasive, which means there is no need for anesthetics, incisions, or a recovery period. You get whiter, straighter, and perfect-looking teeth as quickly as possible, restoring confidence in your smile and yourself.
