Very thin shells of dental porcelain that fit over your natural teeth, porcelain veneers require only a slight amount of tooth enamel to be removed, making them a better choice than crowns for cosmetic restoration. Porcelain veneers are long lasting, durable, and highly natural in appearance.
Why Get Veneers?
Many times our teeth may have discoloration, chipping or staining that just can’t be fixed with conventional over the counter dental product. As a result, many people may have teeth that are healthy but do not look their best. Some common reasons for veneers include, but are not limited to:
- Wear and tear
- Chipping or minor breakage
- Misshapen or uneven teeth
- Slight crookedness or gapping
Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Porcelain veneers are among the longest-lasting dental treatment options. Strong and durable, they easily withstand the forces of biting and chewing. Porcelain veneers can easily last more than a decade with proper care.
In addition, while tooth whitening must be repeated, porcelain veneers are not as prone to yellowing or staining as natural teeth. Following excellent oral hygiene habits can keep your veneers looking white throughout their useful life.
Do Porcelain Veneers Look Fake?
Some people worry that porcelain veneers will give them a fake-looking, overly white, “game show host smile.” The truth is that porcelain veneers look extremely natural. Their sheen and translucency are similar to that of real teeth, and they can be color-matched to your natural smile.
If you want whiter teeth, you can have your natural teeth whitened and then color-match your veneers to that shade. Just keep in mind that you will need to regularly repeat the whitening process to keep your teeth the same color as your veneers.
Besides tooth whitening, we can suggest additional treatments to further enhance your smile. One example is Invisalign. If your teeth are severely misaligned, Invisalign allows us to place only the needed veneers rather than attempting to cover all of your teeth for a straighter smile.
Are Porcelain Veneers for Me?
Like all dental treatments, porcelain veneers are not right for everyone. If you have teeth that are healthy but unsightly, though, porcelain veneers may be the solution for a more beautiful smile. Your dentist will carefully examine your teeth and help you decide if porcelain veneers are the best solution for you.
