Are Porcelain Veneers Right for You?

added on: August 25, 2016

Are you embarrassed by the smile staring back at you in the mirror? Do you shy away from photographs, and even time with friends, because you feel so insecure, due to flaws in your smile? Many adults struggle to feel confident and self-assured, because of imperfections in their smile. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry, like porcelain veneers, provides a way to address many of these esthetic concerns, and to create a beautiful smile in the place of them. So if you’re tired of wishing your smile looked different, why not do something about it, at last? Namely, why don’t you ask your dentist about how porcelain veneers could help give you a smile you will actually want to showcase?

Do You Need Functional Improvements or Esthetic Enhancements?

One popular reason patients choose porcelain veneers is because they can help address a wide variety of cosmetic concerns, including issues related to the size and shape of teeth. Veneers can also effectively hide permanent staining, and even cover minor gaps between the teeth.

It is important to note, though, that these improvements are meant to be purely cosmetic. For patients with functional issues, related to their teeth’s alignment, orthodontic treatment will likely be necessary, in order to truly improve both the smile’s function, and not just its appearance.

Are You Looking for Lasting Results?

Another reason veneers make a great cosmetic solution is because of their longevity. In fact, with proper dental care, many patients can enjoy their porcelain veneers for more than ten years! That is because dental porcelain is both strong, and stain-resistant, making it a great, long-lasting material for cosmetic treatments.
