3 Facts About Porcelain Veneers

If your teeth are chipped, broken or stained, porcelain veneers are an ideal choice. Although other types of veneers are available, it is a good idea to remember that a porcelain veneer is well-tolerated by most people and that it is a permanent solution for your dental challenges.

Porcelain Veneers And Resin Veneers-Choosing The Right One

An on-going concern for many dental patients over the years has been ill-fitting and obvious dental improvements. Whether it was an off-color filling or a repair that did not look like a natural tooth, it was a common embarrassment that could last for decades or more. Unfortunately, that still occurs occasionally with resin veneers, but is rare with porcelain veneers, due to the stain resistance of porcelain.

Resin veneers are more likely to be stained permanently. That means that although a resin veneer will almost always be a drastic improvement over your previous oral health, it may not be perfect for long, and you deserve the permanent, beautiful smile that porcelain veneers provide.

Porcelain Veneers Are Customized For Your Teeth And Your Teeth Are Customized For The Veneer 

Another common concern that patients have reported is the fear of a veneer not fitting right, like some dentures. Therefore, it is helpful to learn that the damaged or discolored tooth in question will be subjected to corrections and measurements before the veneer is attached.

That may involve trimming down the tooth to a more appealing appearance and creating a veneer that will perfectly bond to every facet of the tooth. As a result, when the porcelain veneer is complete, you will never need to worry about it slipping or looking obvious, because it is a permanent addition to your smile.

Porcelain Veneers Literally Replace The Existing Enamel In The Tooth

In order to provide the perfectly fitted porcelain veneer to your tooth, it is first necessary to make space for it to do so. Therefore, a very small amount of enamel is removed from the tooth. This allows the tooth to be usable and attractive, without fear of being unable to chew or bite your favorite foods.

The dentist will also be able to choose the best color for the veneer. It can perfectly match your existing teeth and you will be able to eat, drink and brush your teeth as you always have, as soon as your mouth adjusts to the change, which is usually just a few days.

In conclusion, modern dentistry allows you to correct virtually anything that you dislike about your smile. If you are ready to smile with an open mouth and not hide your dental concerns, it is time to choose porcelain veneers.
