Do you ever find yourself dreaming about more dazzling and beautiful teeth? On the flip side, do you ever stare in the mirror wondering how much more confident you would feel, if only there weren’t visible flaws in your smile? Many people think the only way to address even minor, cosmetic alignment issues is with extensive orthodontic treatment. Fortunately, there are some cases where porcelain veneers can provide an effective alternative. They can also be used to hide permanent staining, disproportionately sized or shaped teeth, and many more imperfections. So if you’re tired of wishing your smile looked better, it is time to speak with a cosmetic dentist about what can be done to improve the beauty of your smile, and your confidence as well!
What Makes Veneers Ideal?
There are a number of reasons for patients to choose porcelain veneers as their ideal cosmetic treatment. The first reason is because veneers can help to comprehensively correct many concerns at once, by helping improve the uniformity of the teeth’s size, shape and even shade. But veneers can also be made to hide minor gaps between teeth, as well.
Another reason many people favor veneers over alternative treatments, is that the porcelain is designed to be both natural-looking and incredibly long-lasting. In fact, porcelain is very similar to teeth’s natural enamel, in that it is both stain resistant and strong.
How Long Will You Enjoy Your Smile Enhancements?
In many cases, the esthetic benefits of veneers can actually last for ten years or more with proper care. That requires daily dental hygiene and routine dental visits and cleanings.
