How Porcelain Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Aug 6, 2019 | Cosmetic Dental Care

Porcelain veneers are small, thin white shells that are typically made of medical-grade ceramic. The shell is bonded to the front surface of your teeth for an instant smile transformation. Veneers are useful for hiding tooth discolouration, cracking and so much more. Here is how porcelain veneers can improve your smile, self-confidence and overall quality of life.

They Solve Cosmetic Dental Problems

Various cosmetic teeth imperfections can be remedied with the application of veneers, one of which includes gaps between the teeth. It also solves the problem of missing teeth, stained teeth, or otherwise misshapen teeth. It is best to talk to your dentist to determine if porcelain veneers are the right choice for you.

Veneers are Long-Lasting

Porcelain veneers will leave you with a stain-free smile that is long-lasting with the proper care. If you keep that up, they will last you for more than ten years, especially since they are resistant to tooth decay as well as discolouration. However, biting into hard food has the potential to damage the veneer.

They are Easy to Maintain

You do not need to do anything special when it comes to caring for your porcelain veneers. In order to limit the development of plaque and tartar, simply brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily as you normally would. Make sure that you are keeping up with your regular dentist appointments, scheduling them two to three times a year. In order to ensure that your veneers stay looking great, you need to keep your natural teeth healthy.

It is Minimally Invasive

When compared to other cosmetic dental procedures, like having dental crowns applied, the application of veneers is not too invasive. Only a small section of the surface of your teeth needs to be removed to make enough room for the veneers to be attached. 

They Produce Stronger Teeth

While porcelain veneers are typically used to improve your teeth’s appearance, they have also been known to strengthen teeth by almost 95%. Even though this will vary from patient to patient, but there is no denying that they have a larger role in your oral health than just making your teeth look good.

They are a Custom Fit

When you get porcelain veneers to improve your smile, you are getting a custom product that is unique to only your teeth. As everyone has different tooth anatomy as well as dental needs, any veneers made are done so to fit perfectly into your mouth. Your dentist will address any issues relating to sizing,colour, shape and arrangement before the veneers are completed.
