If you want a more confident, attractive smile heading into 2021, you should consider getting porcelain veneers. Also known as dental veneers, these cosmetic restorations are thin porcelain shells that cover the surface of your teeth to create a healthy and vibrant appearance. Here are some of the reasons getting porcelain veneers may be the right choice for you.
1. Veneers Help Protect Cracked or Chipped Teeth
Any tooth with a chip or crack is a weak tooth. Porcelain veneers not only help maintain the strength and integrity of a cracked tooth, but also obscure it. In cases involving more severe cracks, it may be best to go with a dental crown to get the ideal look.
2. They Change the Shape of Your Teeth for a Balanced Look
Many people have one or two teeth that aren’t perfectly formed. One of the best ways to solve this issue is with a porcelain veneer. When shaping a veneer, our dentists contour it to blend with surrounding teeth, making a balanced smile.
3. Veneers Can Fill in Missing Gaps Between Teeth
While dental bonding is one of the ways to help fill in the gaps between small or misshapen teeth, porcelain veneers are also a great choice. Veneers add bulk to each tooth, closing the gap between other teeth while looking natural and beautiful. In addition, they give you instant results and are sometimes an alternative to braces and orthodontic treatment (assuming no major bite or alignment issues are present).
4. They Cover Permanent Stains
Porcelain veneers are a great option for those who have permanent stains on their teeth that won’t go away with teeth whitening or bleaching. Adding veneers will help cover these permanent stains.
5. Veneers Are Durable
With good dental hygiene, porcelain veneers can last for about 15 years. In addition, they are resistant to stains or discoloration and are safe for your gums.
