What are Porcelain Veneers?
People who have teeth that are discolored, poorly shaped, or chipped often opt for porcelain veneers to restore confidence in their smiles. They are made of thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front side of your teeth. All porcelain veneers are custom fit to make sure they match the shape and color of your natural teeth. It is important to be aware that porcelain veneers are permanent and cannot be reversed because, at the beginning of the process, a small amount of enamel is removed from the tooth.
Benefits of Veneers
There are many benefits to porcelain veneers. In addition to having a perfect smile and fixing any minor cosmetic issues, you will also be able to benefit from stain resistance that natural teeth don’t offer. The color of your veneers is permanent once they are cemented, so be sure to choose wisely. Veneers typically require very little anesthesia and you can take comfort in the fact that only a very small amount of your tooth structure is lost. Porcelain veneers look completely natural and are very durable. Some people actually choose veneers over crowns or braces because they are much less invasive and can enhance the overall look of your smile for minor issues such as small gaps or chips.
Caring for Veneers
After you get porcelain veneers, it is important that you continue your regular dental hygiene regiment of brushing and flossing. You should also be aware that at some point, you will have to have your veneers replaced in the future. Typically, veneers can last anywhere between 10 and 20 years, so be prepared for the cost of a replacement down the road. The best way to have your veneers last as long as possible is to make sure you take very good care of them.
