Benefits of Porcelain VeneersYour smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. It is important to feel good about your smile. Your teeth are a big factor when it comes to a perfect smile, and unfortunately, there are many people today who do not feel confident about their smile

Getting porcelain veneers usually helps boost their confidence when it comes to their smile.

WHAT ARE PORCELAIN VENEERS?

Porcelain Veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth. Each veneer is designed differently for each person, and it is considered a cosmetic dental enhancement. Porcelain veneers are made from advanced materials that mimic the appearance of the natural enamel on teeth. Many people choose to get porcelain veneers if their smile is less-than-perfect because of yellowing, stains, chips, cracks in the teeth, gaps between teeth, or minor misalignment.

There are a few things you need to make sure of before you opt for this treatment. You must first have good overall oral health and be committed to maintaining proper oral care and dental hygiene. If you are going to make this investment in your smile, you want to make sure that taking care of the porcelain veneers is a major priority.

WHY PORCELAIN VENEERS?

#1: Unlike composite resin veneers that require more maintenance as they can chip, porcelain veneers are more durable, usually lasting anywhere from 12-25 years and rarely require any maintenance (outside of basic oral hygiene, of course!).

#2: If you have severe discoloration, malformation or misalignment of the teeth, porcelain is a better option for your unique circumstance.

#3: If you feel that your teeth are small and misaligned, then porcelain veneers would be the ideal option. They are made from a mold of your teeth and then sized and fit proportionately to the other teeth in your mouth.

#4: Another added benefit to choosing porcelain veneers over composite veneers is that the gum tissue tolerates the porcelain better.

If properly cared for, porcelain veneers are always a great option if you are looking for cosmetic enhancements for your teeth. They are the best at mimicking the natural look and feel of teeth, thus, making them almost always unnoticeable.

Since porcelain veneers can essentially last forever if taken care of properly, you are sure to feel more confident and happy with your smile. Learn more about porcelain veneers.
