Top Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers
Would you like to improve your front teeth? Since this month is all about love, there is no better time to make the necessary steps to love your smile. We provide a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments that can bring about any change you want to see in your smile. If your front teeth are what you are looking to improve, there is one treatment in particular that we may recommend — porcelain veneers. Read on to learn more about this popular treatment.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
If you are looking to make a change to your front teeth, porcelain veneers may be the perfect cosmetic dentistry treatment for you. Porcelain veneers are custom-designed shells that are permanently placed over the front surface of the teeth. They can be used to treat one tooth or multiple teeth. Many patients choose to use veneers on all front teeth to give them a uniform appearance. Veneers can be used to cover concerns such as:
- severe staining
- chipped or cracked teeth
- misaligned teeth
- irregularly shaped teeth
- severely worn teeth
Benefit of Porcelain Veneers
Patients love veneers because they are tooth colored and can be designed to be any shade you choose. Many patients choose a shade that is whiter than their natural teeth. You should note that veneers cannot be whitened, so if you are looking for a brighter smile, we recommend completing a whitening treatment on your natural teeth to match the shade you choose for your veneers.
Veneers are more durable than other treatments, such as bonding. They are designed to last for many years when cared for properly. Our recommendation is to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a gentle toothpaste so as not to damage the veneers. Veneers are not indestructible and cannot withstand vigorous brushing.
