5 Advantages of Porcelain Veneers
Do you feel self-conscious of front teeth with small chips, cracks, or other minor imperfections? If so, ask our Muskegon cosmetic dentist if you’re a candidate for porcelain veneers.
A veneer is a wafer-thin porcelain shell that Dr. Jones is able to attach to the front of your tooth. This gives you a beautiful smile that you’ll be proud to show off to the world.
Here are some of the top five advantages of porcelain veneers.
1. Repair Front Teeth With Minor Imperfections
Dental veneers are perfect for restoring front teeth with small chips, cracks, and stains. But we can also use them to close small gaps between front teeth or to improve the appearance of a misshapen tooth.
No matter your circumstances, Dr. Jones will sit down with you to discuss your options for cosmetic dentistry. If you’re a candidate for porcelain veneers, he’ll be able to explain your next steps so you know what to expect.
2. Preserve as Much Enamel as Possible
Compared to other procedures, porcelain veneers are minimally invasive. This is because our dentist only needs to remove a thin layer of enamel from the fronts of the teeth that will be receiving the veneers.
For a dental crown, we would need to remove significantly more enamel in order to shape the tooth. That way, there would be enough space for the crown to sit on top of the tooth without looking bulky.
3. Smile With Confidence
Your emotional wellbeing is just as important as your oral health. Every time that you hide your smile or cover your mouth while you laugh, is another opportunity you lose to connect with other people. Porcelain veneers allow you to always show up to each interaction as your best self.
First impressions matter, especially if you’re interviewing for a job or trying to impress a date. Having a healthy, attractive smile will give you the confidence you need to live your best life.
4. Enjoy Veneers That Look and Feel Natural
Our dentist goes to great lengths to ensure your veneers blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile. Once your teeth have been prepared for the veneers, Dr. Jones will take accurate and precise impressions of your smile.
Next, Dr. Jones will use a shade guide to ensure yourmatch the color of your natural enamel. When your permanent veneers arrive from the lab, Dr. Jones will place the veneers on your teeth and make any last-minute adjustments to ensure the perfect fit.
5. Appreciate Long-Lasting Porcelain Veneers
Theis 10 years if you practice good oral hygiene. In general, the healthier your mouth, the longer your veneers will last.
This means that you’ll need to commit to brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes at a time. You should also be flossing once a day to remove any food particles or plaque that could be hiding between teeth.
Avoid bad habits that could damage your veneers, such as smoking, chewing ice, or using your teeth to open bottles.
