If you are considering porcelain veneers, you considering one of the most profound advancements in cosmetic dentistry. While veneers hold powerful capabilities to transform your smile, the concept behind them is quite simple. Here is a closer look at how veneers work and their unique advantages over other cosmetic dental services.
Veneers are wafer thin shells of porcelain that are strongly bonded to the front surface of your teeth. To ensure the veneer adheres properly to the tooth, a very small portion of your tooth must be removed. Therefore, porcelain veneers are irreversible. However, don’t let that scare you. The advantages of veneers are significant and they include the following:
- Instant Smile Makeover: Veneers can instantly correct teeth that are stained, uneven, decayed, broken, gapped or otherwise unattractive.
- Natural Appearance: Veneers can be uniquely crafted in shape, form and color to project a beautiful, balanced and very natural-looking smile.
- Stain Resistant and Scratch Resistant: Veneers do not change color over time? and they are highly durable for everyday function.
- Long-lasting: With proper care, most patients get at least a decade or more of wear from veneers.
