Everyone wants to feel comfortable about the appearance of their smile. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of cosmetic dental treatments out there to help you feel more confident about how you look. A popular option is veneers because of their numerous benefits. Continue reading to learn about just some of the countless advantages of opting for dental veneers to give you the smile of your dreams.
Getting Veneers Isn’t a Difficult Process
When you have porcelain veneers, you don’t have to put up with an uncomfortable procedure in order to see your final results. Your dentist only needs to remove about ½ millimeter of enamel from the front surface of the teeth where the veneers will be placed. You will receive temporary veneers for a few weeks until your permanent ones are ready. During your final appointment, they will be adhered to your teeth using a special dental cement. There is little to no anesthesia required.
Veneers Fix Many Cosmetic Problems
There are numerous different cosmetic imperfections that can be easily corrected with the use of veneers. Here are some of the most common:
- Chipped teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Minor misalignment issues
Veneers Are Durable and Long-Lasting
While veneers aren’t made to last forever, they can last upwards of 15 years if you care for them properly. They are nonporous so they resist stains much better than they would with natural tooth enamel. They are also strong and durable, so they’re unlikely to become damaged.
Easy to Maintain
There isn’t anything extra that you need to do in order to care for your veneers. Just do what you would do with your natural teeth. Brush, floss, rinse, and see your dentist every six months for regular cleanings and checkups.
Veneers Are a Permanent Whitening Option
Many patients come to the office for regular teeth whitening, but veneers are another option when it comes to giving yourself a brighter smile. They are resistant to discoloration that’s caused by habits like smoking and drinking coffee. You don’t need to invest in over-the-counter or professional whitening treatments that can add up over time. Your dentist will be able to customize your veneers to be the exact color you’re looking for.
Veneers Look Natural
If you don’t want everyone to know that you’ve had cosmetic dental work, there’s no need to worry! Veneers are customized to be the exact size, shape, and color needed to blend in perfectly with your smile. In the end, you will have beautiful, natural-looking pearly whites!
If you’re looking for a smile makeover, veneers may be the solution! Talk to your dentist to determine whether or not veneers are the right option for you!
