A beautiful smile can speak volumes by making you seem friendlier, trustworthy, and more approachable. Furthermore, a nice-looking smile tends to boost a person’s self-esteem and confidence. Bottom line, there isn’t a downside to having great teeth, yet not everyone has a perfect set naturally—that’s where porcelain veneerscome in. Veneers allow patients transform their smiles from ordinary to dazzling in no time.
Dr. Brad Greenfield, your Lake Orion, MI dentist shares the benefits of porcelain veneers in this blog post.
The Advantages of Porcelain Veneers
- Durability. Veneers have been manufactured from incredibly durable and strong porcelain material. In other words, eating your favorite foods won’t prove challenging. Since veneers don’t change the structure of your smile, teeth function in the same manner as they did before veneer placement.
- Permanence. According to your Lake Orion, MI dentist, some patients have reported that their porcelain veneers have last more than 10 years, trouble-free. This means your newly enhanced smile can maintain it’s beauty for many years to come. Additionally, if anything should happen to your veneers, Dr. Greenfield can have any piece replaced to ensure your smile continues to look brand-new.
- Natural-looking. The porcelain material used to create veneers has the ability to mimic natural teeth flawlessly. Just like natural teeth, porcelain has translucent qualities, which allows some light to penetrate the surface. Since veneers can act like natural teeth, these dental enhancements go completely unnoticed to the untrained eye.
- Corrects flaws. A veneer is essentially a shell for your existing teeth. After the dentist prepares the surface by removing a tiny portion of your enamel, the veneers become permanently bonded to your teeth. This helps correct any imperfections and discolorations that the your dental surfaces have, resulting in a flawlessly corrected smile.
