Porcelain Veneers are the perfect solution for those who have ever felt self-conscious about their smile. Have you ever felt self-conscious about your smile? If you have, ask your dental implant specialist about them. A veneer is a wafer-thin shell made of porcelain attached to the front of your teeth by your dentist so that you can smile confidently.
Veneers may be right for you if you need to repair minor cosmetic damage to your teeth that shows when you smile or speak. For example, your dentist might recommend dental veneers to repair chipped teeth.
1. A porcelain veneer fixes small cosmetic issues
Have you ever had a chipped front tooth? Consult your cosmetic dentist if you are considering porcelain veneers. You can fix much more than just a chipped tooth with porcelain veneers; they can also conceal discolouration and close small gaps between front teeth.
2. Porcelain veneers are natural-looking and feel
Porcelain veneers are made to match your natural tooth enamel. During your first appointment, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth.
Afterwards, these impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory, where your veneers will be fabricated. If you return to the dental office, your dentist may make slight adjustments to the colour and fit of your veneers. Veneers made from porcelain look and feel more natural than other types of teeth coverings.
3. Minimally Invasive Porcelain Veneers
With porcelain veneers, your dentist won’t need to remove tooth enamel as other tooth restoration options. With dental veneers, most of our patients appreciate that they can keep more of their tooth enamel than if they were to opt for dental crowns.
The front of your teeth is only covered with porcelain veneers. On the other hand, dental crowns must cover the entire tooth, which requires the dentist to remove a greater amount of enamel. As the veneer process is non-invasive, you may not even need to be anaesthetized while removing your tooth’s enamel.
4. Easily maintained porcelain veneers
You should take care of veneers the same way you would your natural teeth. You should make sure that you brush twice a day and floss once a day to remove plaque from your teeth.
Additionally, make sure to visit your dentist regularly. With this simple maintenance, you can keep your veneers bright and healthy so you can enjoy a beautiful smile. Dental veneers are non-porous, so they resist permanent stains and cavities better than natural tooth enamel. Therefore, veneers are easier to maintain than natural teeth.
5. High-quality porcelain veneers
Veneers may chip when biting down on hard foods (such as ice). When you take good care of your veneers, you can expect them to last for more than a decade, as long as you take good care of them. The best way to avoid chewing on hard objects or biting into foods with your front teeth is to avoid it whenever possible.
6. Porcelain veneers resist staining
Veneers are stain-resistant, so you can eat your favourite foods without worrying about staining. Despite this, you will still need to maintain your veneers as you would your natural teeth. Drinking too much coffee can stain your veneers, and they do not whiten the same way natural teeth do.
7. A porcelain veneer is beneficial to your gums
Certain materials are sensitive to your gums. However, veneers are made out of a gum-safe material, which means they will fit well into the shape of your mouth. In the long run, veneers will not negatively impact the health of your gums.
