Have you ever considered getting porcelain veneers? For many people, these veneers offer a great solution to their concerns about the appearance of their teeth.
If you aren’t sure whether veneers are right for you, your cosmetic dentist can talk you through all the details and advise you of everything you need to know to make an informed decision.
Veneers have many advantages, but here are just a few to think about.
1. They’re long lasting
One of the main benefits of porcelain veneers is they are relatively durable and stain-resistant, so your smile can keep looking like new even after 10 or up to 20 years.
As long as they are cared for properly, porcelain veneers can provide a long-lasting solution for teeth that are discoloured, chipped, broken, stained or unevenly shaped.
2. They provide an instant change
Some dental procedures require days of recovery before the results can really be seen, or repeat visits to the dentist. Once your porcelain veneers are applied, they instantly change the appearance of your teeth.
They consist of thin shell-like structures that are added onto the front of each tooth, providing a totally new appearance with improved colour, shape and size.
3. They look realistic
Porcelain is a great material for veneers because it looks a lot like the way naturally healthy teeth appear. It reflects light in the same way natural teeth do and it can have the same kind of lustre and shine.
They can also be treated in a way that ensures their colour will look more realistic. To see for yourself how great porcelain veneers can look, check out our gallery of porcelain dentistry.
4. They’re custom-made
Each set of veneers is different. Your cosmetic dentist will help you choose the way you want your veneers to look so that you get the smile you want.
Porcelain veneers are created separately in a dental laboratory, so they are custom-designed just for your teeth.
