Porcelain veneers have become increasingly more well-known over the years among people who want to improve their smiles’ appearance. Often referred to as an instant smile makeover, much of their popularity lies in the fact that they can correct multiple different smile concerns at once, and with minimal treatment overall. If you’re curious about porcelain veneers and whether they can successfully improve your smile, then chances are they may be an ideal solution for optimizing your treatment.
They can probably address your smile concern
A porcelain veneer is a small, thin shell of porcelain that’s designed according to the size, shape, and contour of your tooth’s front surface. When the veneer is bonded to the tooth, it transforms it by completely covering its front surface with a lifelike, blemish-free appearance. By doing so, a veneer can correct a wide range of issues that affect this appearance, including minor cracks, worn-down edges, severe discoloration in this area, and more. Because of this, there’s a good chance that porcelain veneers could successfully address your specific concerns with your smile, as well.
They don’t require much prep work to your teeth
The minimally invasive nature of porcelain veneers is another important reason why they’ve become more popular over the years. When it comes to improving your smile’s appearance, the visible results of the treatment are only a part of what defines its success. The other part depends on the treatment’s impact on your healthy, natural tooth structure. Ideally, the best treatments are those that require little or no permanent changes to your tooth structure, which could have a negative impact on their health and integrity. With porcelain veneers, preparing your teeth to receive their veneers only requires sculpting a small amount of enamel from their front surfaces to allow the veneers to sit flush with the contour of your smile.
They’re as durable as they are discreet
High-quality dental porcelain is an important factor in the overall success and quality of your veneers. The porcelain is not only customizable to closely mimic the unique appearance of your teeth, but also durable enough to restore the function of your teeth under your bite’s full pressure. This means your porcelain veneers will not only improve your smile on multiple fronts, but also be made to last under the consistent pressure and friction of your bite.
