If you have been considering porcelain veneers to restore your smile, there are many reasons why this treatment may be a good option. If you are not sure whether you should consider this treatment or composite veneers, there are several things that you should know that could sway your decision.
Here are 5 reasons why you should consider porcelain veneers.
Enjoy a whiter smile.
Porcelain veneers are a good option if you want to permanently whiten your teeth. While you may consider teeth whitening treatments, these treatments often can’t give you the results that you are looking for. In addition, the whiter color will remain permanently, as long as you properly care for your veneers. If you are feeling insecure about your teeth because of stains, porcelain veneers may be the solution that you need to help you feel confident about your looks again.
Fix problems with the shape of your teeth.
If you have teeth that are chipped or misshapen, porcelain veneers can help you to solve these problems because they are bonded to the surfaces of your teeth. Depending on your problem, you may need have several veneers installed over your teeth to create the look of a natural smile. A dentist can determine which sizes and shapes will look best when examining your teeth.
Fix gaps in your teeth.
Gaps are another problem that porcelain veneers can solve. Instead of resorting to braces or other long term dental treatments, you may be able to fix your problem with a veneer. The veneers can be shaped so that they will effectively cover your gap. This will help you to feel more confident about your smile while also giving you whiter looking teeth in the process.
Porcelain veneers are designed to last.
Porcelain veneers are designed to last for a long time. In some cases, they can last 15 years or more, which is much longer than composite veneers, which only last about 6 to 8 years. As a result, porcelain veneers can cost more than composite veneers. However, you can expect them to last longer, offering you greater value for your money. If you are looking for a treatment that will provide you with a great smile for years to come, then porcelain veneers are a good option.
Porcelain veneers look more natural.
Porcelain veneers are carefully made to match the natural color of the patient’s teeth. In addition, porcelain offers a natural sheen that you can not get from composite resin because composite resin is opaque.
One of the biggest advantages of porcelain veneers is the impact that they will likely have on your self-esteem and emotional wellbeing. With veneers, you can eliminate the years of unhappiness and insecurity that you may have experienced because of your natural teeth. As a result, you may feel more confident to pursue the professional and personal achievements that you never thought were possible with your real teeth. With porcelain veneers, you’ll find that you will smile more and have increased confidence.
