A smile with damaged teeth can be devastating to self-esteem and confidence. People with cracked, chipped, or broken teeth can feel the need to hide their smile, making them come off as distant or unhappy. If you are ready to stop covering your smile and start sharing it with the world, then you may benefit from learning about porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are a solution for teeth that have cosmetic imperfections. They are becoming a popular solution for patients to cover damaged teeth and enjoy the benefits of a beautiful smile.
The thin porcelain shells are permanently bonded to the front of teeth to change or cover bothersome flaws. Porcelain veneers have a high satisfaction rating because of their likeness to natural tooth enamel.
Other advantages of porcelain include:
- It is resistant to staining, which can help keep the smile bright and white.
- Porcelain reflects light similarly to tooth enamel, which makes it nearly impossible to distinguish the difference between natural teeth and veneers.
- Porcelain is well tolerated by the mouth, reducing the risk of gum irritation.
- Porcelain can be color matched to existing teeth, or patients may opt for a whiter shade if they are covering all of the teeth.
Porcelain veneers are a custom solution, so patients will have a say in crafting the smile of their dreams. Veneers are strong and long lasting. With proper oral care like brushing, flossing and regular dental visits, they can last a decade or even longer. It is important for patients to avoid habits such as smoking, tooth grinding, or chewing on hard objects to help prolong the life of the veneers.
