Looking at the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

womanwhitesmileDental veneers provide a great way to improve your smile and protect your teeth at the same time. Most often made of porcelain, these very thin shells are adhered to the front surface of your teeth to cover any problems that you dislike about your smile. There are a number of benefits that veneers provide, making them a popular choice for smile transformations.

Hides problems
Veneers can hide a variety of flaws with your teeth. They easily cover gaps, chips, stains, misalignment, and discolorations. Your smile will be brand new and beautiful, without having to undergo extensive or painful procedures.

Increases confidence
By covering up your smile’s imperfections, you will gain more confidence about yourself. You will be able to smile, speak, eat, and laugh when you feel proud of your teeth and no longer have to be embarrassed about problems.

Provides simple alternative
The process of getting veneers is easy. Your dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a minimal amount of enamel if needed, and then the veneers will be bonded to the fronts of your teeth. They will be shaped as necessary to give them a perfect fit. None of the procedures involved are painful, so it’s a simple way to renew your smile.

Looks natural
Porcelain is the most common material used to create dental veneers. It provides a very natural appearance so that others won’t even be able to tell you have them.

Lasts a long time
Veneers can have a very long lifespan, up to fifty years or more. When they are made of high quality porcelain, they won’t be easily damaged and will resist stains. They won’t become discolored, but will maintain their bright and appealing look for the entire time you have them. If your veneers do become damaged for some reason, it is an easy process to get them replaced.
