4 Reasons To Transform Your Smile With Veneers

by Wyatt Morgan

A beautiful smile is something that boosts your confidence and makes you feel attractive. It can be hard to feel confident meeting new people or speaking in public if your are not proud of your smile. Always take to your dentist about any concerns you have regarding your teeth and oral health. Your dentist is able to provide you with multiple options that help boost your smile's aesthetic and your oral health. Porcelain veneers can help elevate your smile, giving you the smile you always dreamed of. Cosmetic dentistry is safe and effective, and your dentist is able to discuss the benefits of each option with you to help you narrow down your choices. Here are four reasons to transform your smile with veneers.

Maintaining veneers is simple and inexpensive.

In order to maintain your porcelain veneers, you must carry out a good oral hygiene routine. This routine should consist of regular brushing and flossing as described by your dentist. Your veneers are made of medical-grade ceramic and are not as delicate as natural enamel; however, it is still important to keep your gums healthy. Removing food particles left behind from meals reduces your incidence of gum disease. Bad bacteria in your mouth can cause bad breath as well.

Veneers are impervious to food-related stains.

Your natural enamel is porous and breaks down more easily, making it easy for chromogens to bond with it and create stains. Porcelain veneers are impervious to food-related stains. You can enjoy as much coffee, soda, and dark tea as you want; your veneers will not turn brown or yellow. Some medications can also discolor your teeth, but that is not something that you have to worry about with your porcelain veneers. They are also resistant to staining from cigarette smoke.

Porcelain veneers correct many tooth problems.

Whatever is keeping you from loving your smile, porcelain veneers can help correct the problem. You may have one problem detracting from the attractiveness from your smile or several; either way, porcelain veneers can help elevate your smile to the aesthetic you want to have. Porcelain veneers help to correct the following smile defects:

  • cracked teeth
  • chipped teeth
  • gapped teeth
  • discolored teeth
  • misaligned teeth

Veneers can be applied in a single visit.

Once your porcelain veneers have been ordered, a dentist (such as Tore D Steinberg DDS PC) can apply them in a single visit in most cases. Your dentist shapes your natural teeth in order to promote maximum bonding with the veneers. Then he fixes your veneers over your teeth, allowing you to keep most of your natural oral tissues. Your smile is immediately transformed, giving you a straight, white smile to share with everyone.
