If you want to improve the way your teeth look, then porcelain veneers, sometimes called dental veneers, are a great choice for you. Porcelain veneers are made from thin custom made porcelain sheets. They are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve the way they look. The dentist bonds them to your teeth permanently, and they can last up to 20 years if well cared for. Below are some reasons why you should choose these for your teeth.
Resistant to Stains
With your regular teeth, smoking, drinking coffee, tea, etc., stains your teeth over time. With porcelain veneers, you will not have to worry about this because they resist all stains. This means you will not have to have your teeth whitened by the dentist.
Efficient and Effective
Porcelain veneers can fix many teeth problems, such as chipped or cracked teeth. They can also change the size and shape of your teeth. If you have spaces between your teeth, the veneers will cover them up. This means you will not have to worry about getting braces put on your teeth to close the gaps up. This results in you saving a lot of money.
Can Choose From Different Shades
Because porcelain veneers are custom made, you can choose from different shades. For example, if you do not want your veneers to be a very bright white, then you can go down to another shade. The dentist will show you fake teeth that are in the shades that they offer to help you make the right choice. You can remove one of the teeth and hold it up to your mouth to see what it will look like.
No matter what shade you choose, your teeth will look completely natural. Some dentists will allow you to wear temporary dental veneers in the shade that you choose to make sure you will like it before they put on the permanent veneers.
Maintenance is Easy
You basically take care of your porcelain veneers like you do your natural teeth, such as brushing and flossing twice per day. You should visit your dentist regularly to still have your teeth cleaned. The dentist may prescribe a special toothpaste that is non-abrasive and will polish your teeth.
Talk with your dentist if you are interested in porcelain veneers. They can give you much more information about them to help you decide if they are right for you.
