When you are self-conscious about your smile, you may avoid showing your teeth in photos, when you smile, or at job interviews. If this is you, dental veneers may be a great option for you. Porcelain veneers are often used to cover up embarrassing dental problems like unevenly spaced, discolored, chipped, or misshapen teeth. The many benefits of porcelain veneers have made them one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures available. At Eastern Slope Dental, we can help you decide if veneers are the right option for you.
Benefit #1: Veneers Cosmetically Repair Teeth Simply and Easily
A dental veneer is made of a thin piece of porcelain that Dr. Mulandi cements onto the front of your teeth. This covers the tooth and improves its appearance. They are custom-made to fit each tooth. That allows each person to have the most natural and attractive smile as possible. Porcelain veneers match the natural color of the teeth they are covering, and they reflect light just like a natural tooth does. They do not stain easily, making them a great choice for fixing cosmetic problems with your teeth.
Benefit #2: Dental Veneers Offer a Natural Appearance
While it may require an extra visit to our North Conway, NH dental office to receive this special type of restoration, the end result is worth it!
At your first appointment, Dr. Mulandi will take impressions of your teeth. The impressions are used to create veneers that will match your natural tooth color and contour.
Once your porcelain veneers are done, Dr.Mulandi will sculpt each overlay to create a natural-looking smile for you. They are customized to fit your style and facial symmetry. Once they are placed on your teeth, they will look and feel as natural as before the treatment.
Benefit #3: Veneers are a Quick Cosmetic Fix
Dental veneers can be a life-changer for those who are not happy with the appearance of their teeth. They can be used to address these types of cosmetic issues:
- Teeth that are chipped
- One or more missing teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Teeth that are misshapen
- Discolored or stained teeth
Sometimes, veneers can be used to treat gaps between the teeth as an alternative to braces. The veneers cover the issues so well, only you and the dentist will ever know you have them!
Benefit #4: Dental Veneers are Easy to Maintain
Porcelain veneers do not require any special care above normal good oral hygiene. Simply care for them as you would your natural teeth. Continue to brush twice daily and floss at least once a day. Of course, to maintain the great smile that veneers create, you’ll also want to keep your regular checkups at Eastern Slope dental.
Benefit #5: Veneers are Permanent and Durable
Porcelain veneers are a permanent solution. What’s more, they actually resist stains and decay better than your natural teeth! The surface of a veneer is non-porous, which helps them resist both stains and cavities better than porous enamel. With proper care, veneers can last 10 and 15 years.
Benefit #6: Porcelain Veneers offer a Permanent Tooth Whitening Option
Many patients like to get a professional tooth whitening treatment. Veneers are resilient, especially when compared to natural teeth. They are highly stain-resistant, so you won’t need to get them whitened regularly. Some people prefer to combine dental veneers with dental crowns because the two procedures can offer stunning results.
Benefit #7: They Require Very Little Enamel Removal
If enamel wears away, it’s gone forever and cannot be replaced. Placing dental veneers only removes a super thin layer of enamel The removal of a tiny bit of enamel is necessary for the veneer to bond on the tooth properly. This helps ensure the veneer appears natural and feels comfortable. Remember that the thin shell is placed on just the front of a tooth, whereas dental crowns and bridges have to surround all surfaces of one or more teeth. This means that more enamel must be removed to place a crown than a veneer.
Benefit #8: They Look and Feel Like Your Natural Teeth
Most of the time, others will not even notice that you had a procedure done, That’s because veneers look so natural. Not only do they look natural, they feel more natural too! You need not worry about people staring at your teeth. You (and they) will simply love your smile again!
Benefit #9: Getting Veneers is a Minimally Invasive Procedure
The procedure is minimally invasive and will require very little or no anesthesia. It’s actually a less invasive therapy than most other dental restoration options.
Benefit #10: Dental Veneers Increase Confidence in Your Smile
Because dental veneers look and feel so natural, you can be more confident in your smile. It’s very common for patients to feel more confident after they get veneers. You can be confident that you are making a great first impression whether going for a job interview, or out on a date.
