Porcelain veneers are one of the newest and most exciting advancements in cosmetic and restorative dentistry today. As demand for a perfect, naturally beautiful smile increases, porcelain veneers are the best way to ensure you end up with a bright smile that you love and that is perfect for you.
Porcelain veneers are a beneficial way to get the smile you want. Cosmetically, veneers are uniform and help your smile look natural and healthy—not overly bleached or fake. You and your dentist will work together to find the tooth shape, the color or shade, and even then amount of veneers to make sure you have a smile that is truly personalized. Because you are choosing the shade of your teeth, you don’t even have to worry about bleaching or whitening—they will already be what you want.
Porcelain veneers are also a great way to protect your teeth. Over your lifetime, the enamel covering your teeth slowly wears away. This is helped along by what you eat and drink. The porcelain in the veneers you provide a layer of protection for your enamel-stripped teeth that will help them stay whiter and nicer longer. They will be protected from staining, as well as be stronger when reinforced by the porcelain.
Getting porcelain veneers done is a weighty decision—but one made easier by the dentist and the many benefits. When you decide to get your veneers done, the dentist will help you decide what you want your smile to look like. You can even “preview” your smile through today’s technology. The procedure is relatively simple: a layer of your tooth’s enamel will be removed and your tooth will be covered with a layer of porcelain in its place. This porcelain will be the shape and shade you had decided on earlier. Because the enamel is removed and the porcelain put in, this procedure cannot be reversed. However, this also means it doesn’t need “maintenance” appointments, unlike most other dental work (including fillings, crowns, and more).
Getting porcelain veneers to achieve the smile you have always wanted is a dental decision that you won’t regret. You will find yourself smiling more and enjoying your new look with the porcelain veneers that make your smile beautiful.
