It is easy to decide that you are unhappy with an aspect of your appearance. However, it is not always so straightforward to discover how you are going to address the issues that are bothering you. If you are less than satisfied with the appearance of your teeth, then you may be considering cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic dentistry is now more accessible and affordable than ever before. With a broad selection of procedures and treatment plans available, there is now a solution to every type of cosmetic dental problem. This means regaining your confidence and self-esteem through a new and improved smile is probably easier than you think.
Porcelain veneers are just one type of cosmetic dental treatments that can transform the appearance of your teeth and help you achieve a smile that you can be proud to share.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, shell-like coverings that lay over the front of your teeth. Each set of veneers is designed specifically for the patient, so that each one is the perfect size and shape to attach successfully to your teeth and improve the overall appearance of your smile.
Veneers are applied to the outer enamel of your teeth. However, before they can be fitted, some of the enamel will need to be filed down using a local anesthetic, so that each veneer fits correctly on the front of the tooth. The veneers are then attached securely using a special adhesive.
What are the benefits of choosing porcelain veneers?
To understand whether porcelain veneers are right for you, it is essential to understand the benefits that they offer.
Perfect to cover stubborn stains
Dental discoloration and staining is a natural and virtually unavoidable part of life. The food that we eat and some of the habits that we have (such as smoking and coffee drinking) can impact the color of our teeth, and some of these stains can be impossible to shift, even after multiple sessions of teeth whitening. Porcelain veneers provide an ideal solution for patients who wish to address the color of their teeth. This is because they are available in a variety of shades, enabling you to pick a color that looks natural and aesthetically beautiful, but is an improvement on the appearance of your existing teeth.
In addition to covering your existing stains, your new porcelain veneers are resistant to new stains, helping you to retain a brighter, whiter smile for longer.
Strong and resilient
Although porcelain veneers may look fragile, they have proven to be extremely durable, meaning that you can enjoy your favorite foods without compromise.
Minimally invasive procedure
Many patients are put off the idea of cosmetic dentistry because they are concerned about having surgery. However, the procedure to get porcelain veneers is minimally invasive and performed under a local anesthetic, so you will not be in any pain. You may even qualify for sedation, making the procedure even more tolerable.
Looking after your new porcelain veneers is essential, but with the right care and attention, they could last you for as long as 15 years.
Patients who have chosen porcelain veneers regularly report of the transformation it has given not only their smile, but their life. Being happy with your smile means increased confidence, which can filter through to both your personal and professional lives.
