Have you ever looked at a celebrity or an influencer on social media and thought, “How is their smile so perfect?” Chances are it’s because they have porcelain veneers.
Over the years veneers have grown in popularity due to their affordability, durability and their ability to drastically improve smiles. While patients choose cosmetic dentistry for a multitude of reasons, here are 4 reasons why you may want to consider choosing veneers.
Cracked OR Chipped Teeth
If you’ve cracked or chipped a tooth, our dentists can place a porcelain veneer over the tooth to prevent it from getting worse. Your dentist can match the color and shape of your teeth so the veneer looks natural. Placing the veneer will restore functionality and ensure your bite remains the same.
A common alternative to addressing a cracked or chipped tooth is dental bonding. Bonding can be a great solution, but it’s not as strong or permanent as porcelain veneers.
Sports related injuries, falls, auto accidents and other trauma can land you in the dentist office. While there are some situations that might require orthodontics, veneers can fix a number of issues caused by dental trauma including cracked or chipped teeth.
Did you know there could be an underlying trauma to a tooth that only a thorough exam could detect? An example of this type of trauma would be when a tooth is no longer receiving adequate blood supply. When this happens, your tooth will likely become discolored. Unlike staining from regular coffee or wine drinking, this discoloration will only affect the traumatized tooth. It’s important to see a dentist as quickly as possible if any of your teeth experience trauma to prevent future issues from happening.
Boost Of Confidence
Many people get veneers because they simply are not happy with their smile. It’s our goal that every patient looks in the mirror and loves what they see. Veneers are a great way to transform a smile into one that you always wished you had.
Keep in mind, not every smile will be alike. We work with you to help understand what you want to see most in your smile, and your porcelain veneers will be highly individual to you.
While veneers can be bonded to your teeth within only a few appointments, they last for many years. When they’re applied properly and taken care of, veneers can last anywhere from five to fifteen years. They are just as durable as your natural teeth, and stain resistant. We offer a five year guarantee on the porcelain veneers.
Veneers can correct a number of cosmetic issues including: crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, stained/discolored or yellow teeth and poorly shaped or sized teeth.
Porcelain Veneers are a great solution if you’re looking to improve the appearance of your smile, or improve the condition of your teeth. To see if you’re a candidate, contact us today for a FREE smile consultation (804) 794-4588.
