Your smile is usually the first thing people notice about you, so it makes sense to want to feel good about your smile. Your teeth are a huge factor when it comes to the perfect smile, and unfortunately, there are so many people today who do not feel confident.
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 hygiene. If you are going to invest in your smile with veneers, then taking care of them should be a priority.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers:
- Unlike composite resin veneers that require more maintenance (as the can chip), porcelain veneers are more durable, lasting from 12-25 years and rarely requiring any maintenance (outside of basic hygiene).
- If you suffer from discoloration, malformation, or misalignment of the teeth, porcelain is a better option for your unique circumstance.
- Since porcelain veneers are made from a mold of your teeth, they are a perfect option for those with teeth that are either small or misaligned – they are sized to fit proportionately to the other teeth in your mouth.
- The gum tissue tolerates porcelain better than composite veneers, making it an easy choice for those with sensitive gums.
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 replicating the natural look and feel of teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable.
Since porcelain can last forever (if properly cared for), you can be certain of enjoying a lifetime of a happy smile. Reach out to us today and see how getting porcelain veneers can bring back your smile! Call (305) 935-6066.
