Are gaps between your teeth causing you to feel self-conscious? Maybe the edges of your teeth are worn and jagged from years of wear and tear. Did you know that many cosmetic issues, from deep discolorations to misshapen teeth, can all be corrected quickly through the use of porcelain veneers? Plus, veneers can be carefully crafted to improve your teeth in a way that still preserves your unique smile, helping increase confidence without taking away originality. If you have shied away from cosmetic treatment, for fear you will be left with obvious dental work, it’s time reconsider, and to explore the ways modern veneers could help.
Perks of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can provide patients with comprehensive coverage of teeth imperfections, while still looking natural. That’s because the porcelain used to create both modern veneers, and many dental crowns, is similar in strength and stain-resistance to your teeth’s natural enamel. It is so strong, in fact, that the veneers can be created thinner than ever before, helping to perfect your smile without making your teeth appear to jut out. Even the natural contouring of your teeth can be emulated in well-crafted veneers.
Another benefit of porcelain veneers is that they can be cared for in the same way as your other teeth, because of how closely the material resembles your natural enamel. This makes for a simple daily hygiene routine.
Alternative Cosmetic Treatments
Though veneers are one of the most popular ways to address concerns in the teeth’s shape, size and coloring, they are not the only solution. Cosmetic bonding can provide similar results, but at a different price point and a different level of durability. The composite resin material used for bonding makes that form of treatment less expensive than porcelain veneers, but also less stain-resistant and chip-proof than dental porcelain.
