Imagine a first date, a job interview, or any number of other important life moments. In such situations, do you find yourself painfully aware of imperfections in your smile? Maybe you try to contain your laughter in moments of levity or hide behind your hand when something funny happens.
Whether you’ve always had dental imperfections that you’ve been self-conscious about, or time or an accident has negatively impacted your smile, the lack of self-confidence and the social discomfort don’t have to continue! Thanks to cosmetic dentistry, you can have a Hollywood-esque smile and unlock the freedom that comes with expressing your emotions uninhibited.
Porcelain veneers are one of the most common cosmetic dentistry methods to cover imperfections for many reasons. What are they, you may ask? Well, you’ve come to the right place to find out! Just read on to discover the benefits of porcelain veneers!
Stellar Good Looks
Sure, we may have mentioned this particular benefit in the introduction, but it’s worth repeating—porcelain veneers are great for fixing a countless number of cosmetic issues! If you have gaps between your teeth, noticeable chips, permanent stains, or otherwise unsightly teeth, porcelain veneers should be your go-to solution.
Of course, there are limits to the miracles porcelain veneers can perform, so be sure to check with your dentist and confirm that you are a good candidate for dental veneers!
Tougher than Teeth
You’ve likely heard it said that tooth enamel is the strongest material in the human body. Don’t get us wrong—enamel is cool—but porcelain veneers actually resist decay better than the teeth you grew yourself. As a bonus, they also happen to be harder to stain. Neat, right?
This durability means that with proper care, dental veneers will last well over a decade. We don’t know about you, but that sounds like a worthwhile investment to us!
Easy Does It
Many people harbor feelings of fear when it comes to dentists and dental procedures. Good news—the process of getting dental veneers is minimally invasive! Because they only adhere to the front of the tooth, they require less work than dental crowns. You may not even need anesthesia!
Once your veneers are applied, maintenance is easy. All you have to do is treat them like your natural teeth. That means routine brushing, flossing, and checkups. Seriously, it’s that easy to care for your brand new, pearly white smile!
If you’re tired of hiding your smile or feeling embarrassed in social situations, cosmetic dentistry may be right for you. Porcelain veneers can do more than simply improve the appearance of your teeth—they can give you the freedom to be you.
