The Real Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are often used by dental professionals to help restore smiles. They can cover chips, cracks, and discolorations. Having a smile you can be proud of is important and can help you be more confident. Porcelain veneers can provide a solution that helps improve your smile so you have more confidence during job interviews, meeting new people and many other situations where you don’t want to feel like you need to hide your smile. Here are a few of the real benefits of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain Veneers Fix a Wide Number of Dental Issues
Veneers are effective at treating quite a broad range of dental issues. These include:
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Teeth that are chipped, misshapen, or broken
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
Talk to Dr. Dernick to determine if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers. They can improve your smile, boost your confidence, and fix minor cosmetic problems.
Minimally Invasive Procedure
Veneers are not as invasive as some other types of dental restorations. Dr. Dernick will only need to slightly modify the surface of your teeth to make room for veneers. About ½ millimeter will need to be removed from the surface of a tooth. Dental crowns require more surface to be removed to make room for the crown to fit over the entire tooth. Veneers are only placed on the front of the tooth instead of around the entire tooth. You will need very little or no anesthesia for the procedure.
Easy to Maintain
Taking care of your porcelain veneers is no different than caring for your natural teeth. Good oral habits like brushing twice a day and flossing once daily help prevent tartar and plaque buildup. You still need to schedule regular dental visits to ensure proper preventative dental care. Veneers are non-porous which means they will resist stains and cavities better than enamel.
Porcelain Veneers are Natural Looking
This is one restorative and cosmetic treatment that looks natural. They make an immediate change to your appearance and as soon as they are applied, your teeth look great immediately. Veneers look and feel like your natural teeth. Just like the enamel on natural teeth has reflective qualities, porcelain veneers will have the same effect, so they provide a natural look. Unless you disclose it to others, they will not even know you have them.
Long-Lasting and Strong
One of the things most people love about veneers is how strong they are. They are as strong as your tooth’s natural enamel. Plus, porcelain veneers will last for a very long time. They are strong enough you will not have any limitations on the foods you can eat.
Improves Your Appearance and Restores Confidence
Your teeth will immediately look better with porcelain veneers. This will result in a beautiful smile you can be proud to share. This improves your overall appearance and helps you make great first impressions. You can smile, take selfies, and group photos with confidence. You may be surprised at how many ways your life will be improved after getting porcelain veneers.
Am I a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers work to improve smiles for most people. However, if you grind your teeth or clench your jaw in your sleep, that can chip veneers. You may need to wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth and the veneers.
