  • 25 May 2018 The Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers

    Hiding your smile because you’re afraid your teeth look crooked or yellow? Dental veneers are the perfect solution to regaining your confidence and giving you the perfect smile. The most commonly used materials for constructing veneers are porcelain and composite resin. Porcelain dental veneers have many benefits over composite veneers which makes them the more cost-effective choice in the long term. Strength and durability Porcelain veneers may seem thin and brittle, but that is only before it has bonded to your natural tooth structure. Professionally applied, eating most foods should not cause any chipping or other types of damage to your veneers.  With basic maintenance routines such as regularly brushing and flossing, these dental veneers can easily last for over 15 years.   Stain resistance The non-porous property of porcelain veneers makes it less susceptible to staining than composite veneers or natural teeth. If you regularly drink coffee, tea or eat foods that would normally stain your teeth, porcelain veneers are the more suitable choice.   Natural look There’s nothing worse than getting dental veneers but feeling like you still can’t smile because you think they look unnatural. Aesthetically, porcelain veneers have the advantage over composite veneers. Its reflective and translucent properties make it extremely similar to natural teeth. Even you won’t be able to tell which part of your teeth is natural or fabricated once an experienced dental technician works with you to choose the right colour of veneer to blend in with your natural teeth structure.   Suitable for more specific circumstances Custom-made carefully in a dental laboratory according to a mould of your teeth, porcelain veneers are highly suitable for unique requirements where there is significant discolouration or misalignment. Porcelain can also fill in gaps better than composite veneers.   Less invasive cosmetic procedure Before porcelain veneers are placed, a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the existing tooth structure. However, the 0.5mm to 0.7mm of enamel removed is so insignificant anesthetic is rarely required. This makes it less invasive than getting braces or crowns fitted in the cases of minor misalignment.   For the best outcomes make sure you contact experienced dental care professionals.
