Are Porcelain Veneers Really Your Best Option?

It’s natural to want to be proud of your smile’s appearance. If you aren’t, then your dentist offers a number of different cosmetic treatments to help you improve it. In many cases, the best option is one or more custom-designed porcelain veneers, which are designed to replace the front and visible surfaces of blemished teeth. Besides their highly lifelike appearance, the reason veneers are often best is because they can effectively address a wide variety of issues with your smile’s appearance, and they can do it without extensive changes to your teeth.

The Point of Porcelain Veneers

Essentially, a porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is custom-crafted to match the size, shape, and contours of a tooth’s front surface. The veneer, which is usually less than 0.5 mm thin, is permanently bonded to the tooth, instantly correcting any blemish that affects its appearance. Because they’re so thin, your dentist doesn’t have to sculpt very much enamel or structure from your tooth, which means you can retain the majority of your healthy tooth structure.

Why They’re Preferable Over Other Options

They’re ability to closely mimic the color, shade, and luminescence of your teeth makes veneers a highly appealing cosmetic dental solution. However, their benefits over other treatments also include:

  • Nearly instance smile makeover, even for multiple issues
  • Correcting bite balance as well as tooth appearance
  • Boosting the strength and integrity of your teeth
  • And more
