Dental veneers are a very popular treatment for improving the look of your smile, and of all the different types of veneers that are available, porcelain veneers are perhaps the best choice as they have a number of advantages over these other types. Porcelain veneers can be used to treat a number of cosmetic dentistry issues.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are very thin laminates which can be applied to the front surface of the teeth to improve the appearance of the teeth. They are applied to the teeth using dental cement which ensures that they remain in place. A mould of your teeth is taken to ensure that the veneers will fit correctly. The use of porcelain veneers can dramatically improve the look of your smile which will give you a huge boost to your confidence.
What Problems Can Veneers Be Used To Treat?
There are many cosmetic problems that porcelain veneers can be used to correct including stained teeth, gaps in your teeth and damaged teeth.
Veneers will completely cover the surface of your teeth and so they are the ideal treatment for teeth that are badly stained and can’t be cleaned by normal teeth whitening procedures.
As veneers cover the surface of the teeth, they are also very effective at hiding any gaps in the teeth. The veneers will be custom made for each individual so all gaps will be covered and the look of your smile will be improved.
Teeth that have become broken or chipped may be able to be replaced, but if you were not totally happy with the appearance of your teeth to begin with, then using veneers may be a better treatment. This will improve the look of all your teeth, not just the ones that are damaged.
What Are The Advantages Of Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are much longer lasting than other materials and can last up to ten years. They will need to replaced eventually but following a good oral hygiene routine at least twice a day can prolong their life. They are more durable than other types of veneer.
Porcelain veneers look more natural than other types of materials that many people prefer. They are also more resistant to staining and will look newer for longer.
