You’re probably familiar with veneers as a form of cosmetic dentistry. However, you may not fully understand why veneers are such a popular option compared with other cosmetic dentistry services. Allow us to lay out the benefits so you can see why so many opt for porcelain veneers.
A Custom Smile. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain made to mimic the look of natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are made individually to overlay existing teeth and cover any gaps or twists. Rather than having a template veneer fitted for your mouth, a cosmetic dentist will create custom veneers to achieve your best smile.
Stain Resistance. Unlike natural tooth enamel, porcelain veneers are made from high tech, stain resistant materials. You won’t have to worry about stains from coffee, tea, or cigarette smoke. Additionally, porcelain veneers can make any smile its brightest white.
Minimal Teeth Alteration. Other procedures like crowns or implants require your real teeth be chiseled or altered. With porcelain veneers, your natural teeth will remain mostly in tact. Usually, less than a millimeter of tooth enamel is removed to make room for veneer application.
Below, you’ll see before and after photos of our veneers patient Dariel. She’s a great example of how well porcelain veneers can improve your smile.
