Your smile is important for many reasons. For instance, your smile is a major component of your systemic wellbeing, and keeping it healthy also benefits your overall health. It’s also one of your most notable facial features, and therefore, its appearance has a serious impact on your self-confidence. The good news is that, in most instances, porcelain veneers can address even multiple cosmetic concerns simply and effectively, with highly lifelike results. Among the many benefits of porcelain veneers, one of the greatest is that they can help patients with a wide variety of cosmetic concerns improve their smiles significantly.
What are porcelain veneers?
Dental porcelain is a popular restorative and cosmetic material because it is not only durable, but also closely mimics your healthy natural tooth structure. In addition to being able to closely match your unique tooth color and appearance, it is also semi-translucent just like your natural tooth enamel. Therefore, it can even mimic the way in which your teeth reflect light for optimal cosmetic results.
How they can help my smile?
Veneers are thin shells of this highly customizable porcelain, which your dentist can bond securely to the front surfaces of your teeth. Each veneer is hand-crafted according to your tooth’s specific size and shape, and when bonded in place, it can instantly improve your tooth’s entire appearance. This makes them viable for issues such as severe teeth stains, cracked or chipped teeth, excessive spaces between teeth, and much more.
Will my veneers last?
Porcelain veneers are not only lifelike in appearance, but also durable enough to last for up to 15 years or more with proper care and maintenance. Caring for your new smile will be as simple as keeping up with good hygiene at home and attending regular checkup and cleaning appointments with your dentist.
