Doubting the beauty of your smile brings your confidence down. You want to be able to talk to and laugh with new people without being self-conscious. Talk to your dentist about the best ways to achieve the smile of your dreams. Your dentist may recommend cosmetic dental procedures to elevate the look of your smile while protecting your oral health. Here are four reasons to choose porcelain veneers for your smile makeover.

Cleaning your porcelain veneers is easy and affordable.

Porcelain veneers require the same amount of care as your natural oral tissues. All you need to do is brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once a day in order to keep your veneers in good shape. Simple brushing and flossing removes food particles and bacteria from your veneers that might otherwise be harmful to your gums. You do not need to buy a special kind of toothpaste or toothbrush to keep your porcelain veneers free of debris and bacteria.

Veneers correct multiple tooth deficiencies.

Veneers are a good choice for your smile makeover if you have more than one tooth deficiency. The veneers help to make your teeth uniform and your smile becomes something you can be proud to show. Porcelain veneers help to correct a few different problems:

  • gapped teeth
  • slightly misaligned or crooked teeth
  • chipped or cracked teeth
  • stained or discolored teeth

Porcelain veneers are applied during one visit to the dentist.

While it does take a few weeks for your dentist to receive the materials for your veneers, it only takes one visit to apply them to your teeth. Your dentist shapes the front of your existing teeth for maximum bonding then affixes the veneers to them with a strong adhesive. The process is short. In a matter of a few years, you have a brand new smile.

Stains become a thing of the past with your veneers.

A discolored, yellow smile can take away from the beauty of your teeth. There are many reasons that your teeth become stained. Certain foods, beverages, medications, and even cigarette smoking can stain your teeth permanently. Porcelain veneers help to cover up any existing stains, elevating the aesthetic of your smile.

Veneers themselves are also highly resistant to stains because they are not porous like your natural tooth enamel. Veneers are made of medical grade resin that is not stained by highly pigmented foods and drinks such as berries, red sauce, and red wine.
