Benefits of Using Porcelain Veneers

Do you have crooked, chipped, or discoloured frontal (anterior) teeth? If yes, cosmetic dentistry procedure of dental veneers can be your solution to have an appealing, complete smile. Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made, laminates or shells to cover imperfections in front teeth. They are generally made of dental porcelain, high-grade ceramic, or composite resin and are attached to the natural teeth in two dental visits. Out of these three materials, porcelain is considered to be the most affordable and effective choice.

Let us understand what benefits porcelain veneers provide over other types of veneers.

Seamlessly Hide Imperfections

As mentioned, veneer shells cover different types of dental flaws. Whether you have discoloured teeth or uneven dark spots on your dental surfaces, cracked or chipped teeth, teeth with broken corners and uneven edges, or one or two smaller teeth, veneers can cover and hide them. Not only this, if you have larger gaps or interdental spaces, veneers can fill them too and hide almost all your imperfections in your frontal teeth.

Mimic the Natural Smile

Porcelain veneers are custom-made. When you visit a dental clinic, the dentist will take impressions of your natural teeth and note your natural teeth shade. Based on the measurement of your natural teeth structure and its colour, they custom-make veneers that match the natural colour of your teeth. The veneers are then accurately fitted over your teeth. This way, veneers blend with your natural smile and mimic your natural teeth.

Long-lasting Solution

Porcelain veneers are made from a strong, durable material that tends to last long. With proper care, porcelain veneers can easily survive for 10-12 years. After getting veneers, you must reduce your consumption of hard foods that can damage the veneers. You must also avoid habits that can affect your veneers such as biting nails or chewing pens or pencils.

Quicker and Easier Procedure

The procedure of getting porcelain veneers, in most cases, gets completed in two dental visits. In the first visit, the dentist or the cosmetic dentist will first file or etch your teeth and remove a part of your dental enamel so that veneers can fit accurately on your teeth. He then takes the impression of the natural teeth by placing soft putty into a tray and putting it around your teeth. Your dentist will call you for the second visit when the custom-made veneers are ready. During the second visit, he will attach the veneers to your damaged teeth with the help of a cement-like resin.

Increased Self-confidence

When you no longer have to compromise with dental imperfections that were taming your beautiful smile, you feel confident about yourself. Porcelain veneers provide you with a complete and aesthetically appealing smile which you can flaunt without thinking twice. This way, custom-made and natural looking porcelain veneers give you the confidence to smile, laugh, and socialize confidently.
