Porcelain veneers have a transforming effect on your smile. They can repair many different defects that take away from the attractiveness of your smile and elevate it to a gorgeous brightness that you can be proud to show everyone you know. Your dentist is extremely helpful in helping you determine the best cosmetic dental treatment for you. If you want to change your smile, make sure that you partner with your dentist to ensure that you make the healthiest decision possible. Here are four reasons why porcelain veneers are the way to go.

Porcelain veneers are stain resistant.

One of the reasons you might be seeking a smile makeover is because of discoloration of your natural teeth. Unlike your natural teeth, porcelain veneers are not porous; thus, they are resistant to stains from foods, beverages, and cigarette smoke. Porcelain veneers are made of very strong medical-grade resin. Once you have your porcelain veneers, you never have to worry about yellow discoloration when you enjoy your favorite foods and drinks. Partake of red wine, colas, berries, and red sauces without worry.

It is easy and affordable to maintain veneers.

You do not have to worry about expending great amounts of effort taking care of your porcelain veneers. It is as simple as brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing, and visiting your dentist regularly. All you need to do in order to care for your veneers is keep your mouth clean, which in turn contributes positively to your oral health. If you have any questions about the your oral health routine, such as if oral irrigation could work for you instead of flossing, make sure that you consult with your dentist.

Veneers correct multiple tooth defects.

Porcelain veneers fix a variety of defects with your teeth, giving you the smile that you have always dreamed of. Porcelain veneers correct the following:

  • gapped teeth

  • crooked teeth

  • discolored or stained teeth

  • chipped or cracked teeth

  • misaligned or irregularly-shaped teeth

You retain most of your natural oral tissues.

Porcelain veneers allow you to retain most of your natural oral tissues while elevating your smile to one you can be proud of. Your dentist shapes the front of your teeth for maximum bonding with the shells of the veneers, then affixes them to your teeth. The veneers are custom made to suit the shape of your mouth and surrounding teeth. Best of all, this can usually be accomplished in a single visit.
