Do you ever look in the mirror, and find yourself longing for a different smile, or at least a better-looking one? If noticeable imperfections have long caused you to feel insecure when showing your teeth, you may have already considered cosmetic dentistry. What has stopped you in the past, though? Many people hesitate when considering cosmetic dental treatment, because they don’t know how effectively it can help, or how long they’ll be able to enjoy the results. If you want a better-looking smile, now is the time to talk to your dentist about the effective and durable way porcelain veneers can help give you a smile you’ll be proud to see when you look in the mirror, and even more delighted to show off!
When Are Veneers the Right Solution?
Porcelain veneers are a popular choice in cosmetic treatment, because of how effectively they can hide a host of issues, including chips, cracks, disproportionately shaped teeth, oddly-sized teeth, and even minor gaps between some of the teeth. Veneers can also help hide permanent staining or discoloration that is intrinsic to a tooth, rather than on the surface where a professional whitening treatment might be able to help improve the brightness of the teeth.
How Long Will the Results Last?
Another benefit of porcelain veneers is that they can provide long-lasting enhancements, thanks to porcelain’s unique properties. Unlike composite resin, which is used to create bonding and also many modern dental fillings, porcelain is more stain resistant, allowing it to look natural for many years, with proper care. That is why porcelain crowns are also one of the most common forms of restorative dentistry. In fact, many patients can enjoy their beautiful smiles created by veneers, for more than a decade!
