Porcelain veneers can completely transform your smile in just a few office visits. The many benefits of porcelain veneers make them one of the most consistently popular cosmetic dentistry treatment in the United States year after year.
Solve Multiple Dental Problems at Once
One of the most significant advantages of porcelain veneers is the fact that they can solve so many dental problems at the same time: including discoloration, misaligned teeth, cracked teeth, and gaps in your smile.
However, porcelain veneers can serve more than just an aesthetic purpose. Veneers can also protect teeth and improve the function and feel of your smile by:
- making teeth more symmetrical
- creating a smooth arc to your bite
- splinting cracked teeth
- making short teeth more proportionate
In many cases, cracked or weakened teeth will no longer need to be replaced after porcelain veneers are applied, since the veneer can act as a splint once a tooth has been stabilized. Despite how thin porcelain veneers are, once they are bonded to your teeth, they become very durable. With proper care, porcelain veneers can even help protect your teeth against decay.
An Alternative to Orthodontics
Braces are a huge commitment and investment of your time and energy. Instead of resorting to orthodontics, porcelain veneers allow you to quickly and effectively correct minor dental problems with your teeth. Because of this, veneers are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics.”
For example, teeth that project too far backward or forward can be reshaped by Dr. Chung so when veneers are applied, the arc of your teeth improves, making your smile not only more attractive, but more functional.
A Whiter Smile
Porcelain veneers can also help whiten your smile. When replacing an entire smile line, all of your veneers will be matched to a bright, natural color. The translucent quality of each veneer allows light to pass through and reflect off your natural teeth, giving your smile a lustrous aesthetic depth. The non-porous surface of porcelain veneers also helps protect against future stains, maintaining the beauty of your smile for many years to come.
