Why It May Be Time to Consider Porcelain Dental Veneers

Your smile is often the first image you show to the world, whether you’re meeting someone new, posing for a photo, giving a speech, or simply chatting with your friends or family.

For many people with crooked, uneven, damaged or discoloured teeth, the way their smile looks is always on their mind and considered to be a constant source of anxiety and embarrassment.

Luckily, recent advances in dental technologies have made it easier, faster, less invasive and more comfortable to improve the appearance of a person’s smile through the use of a variety of dental interventions.

One of the most common forms of cosmetic dentistry used to make a person’s teeth look whiter, brighter, smoother and more even are dental veneers.

What are dental veneers? 

Dental veneers are thin, custom made shells that are applied to a natural tooth to correct small chips, cracks, and discoloration that can be seen when you speak or smile. These veneers are often made of porcelain, and are created to match the colour and shape of your natural teeth. Once the procedure to apply the veneers is complete, they are indistinguishable from the natural teeth.

Here are some benefits of dental veneers:

1.            The procedure is non-invasive

Unlike other cosmetic dentistry procedures, dental veneers require no incisions, anaesthesia, or recovery time. While your dentist will need to remove some dental enamel in order to properly adhere the veneers to your teeth, this process is easy and causes no pain. 

2.            They look and feel natural

Because dental veneers are custom made to fit your teeth and match their natural colour and shape, dental veneers look just like your natural teeth, only better.

3.            They are easy to care for

There is no special care routine needed for dental veneers. Just brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist every six months or so. Dental veneers that are cared for properly usually last about 10 years.
