Placing porcelain veneers is a wonderful way of rejuvenating the smile and addressing imperfections. Porcelain veneers are used to cover areas of concern, including teeth that are broken, discolored, misaligned, or oddly shaped. Some patients can even use veneers to hide spaces between teeth, which may have resulted from shifting or natural structure. When patients visit the team of Vivid Dental to learn more about porcelain veneers, they may be educated on the many advantages to placing them.
Many patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their smiles seek porcelain veneers to make an improvement in their self-confidence. Self-esteem can be negatively affected by an unattractive smile. When patients place porcelain veneers over problematic teeth, they instantly feel better about the way they look which increases their confidence level immensely.
Patients who have short teeth or any other imperfection that has caused them embarrassment can use veneers to customize their smile. During the first appointment, patients can discuss with their dentist the specific areas of their smile they are unhappy about and learn how veneers can assist in improvement.
Dental bonding can be used, but it is not stain resistant. This is why many patients must regularly replace their composite bonding. Veneers resist stains so patients can maintain their pearly whites while enjoying sodas, coffee, and other foods and drinks that can negatively affect the smile.
Porcelain veneers can be used in many circumstances, making them incredibly versatile in correcting a number of cosmetic flaws.
Porcelain is a material commonly used for restoring the smile because it closely mimics the appearance of tooth enamel. They look natural when integrated into the smile, which makes them the most beneficial cosmetic restoration for patients at Vivid Dental.
Porcelain is a very strong material and patients benefit from its durability. While they may break over time due to pressure, they can typically last decades with proper care. Patients are educated on ways to protect their veneers, including the use of mouth guards at night for those who suffer from bruxism.
