Porcelain dental veneers are one of the most versatile, low-pain, and quick methods of cosmetic dentistry. Dental veneers can address almost every cosmetic issue you may have about your teeth- from fixing the appearance of crooked teeth, improving discolored teeth, and even fixing spaces between teeth.
There are several reasons most veneers are made of porcelain. Porcelain is a material that closely imatates your natural teeth. When you get your veneers installed, the difference between the veneers and your own teeth is hardly noticable! Porcelain is a very strong, yet translucent material that is resistant to stains. Just think about the fact that porcelain has been used in teacups for centuries because of its delicate appearance and resistance to tea and coffee stains, and you can see why it’s the most popular material for dental veneers.
Your dental veneers will be designed to match your natural teeth as much as possible. Ask your dentist about bleaching your teeth before ordering your veneers’ color, before the procedure- so your existing smile and your new veneers will be the shade you desire.
Not only can veneers help cosmetically, they’ll also help improve strength and functionality for your teeth. They are particularly helpful for teeth with worn enamel or minimal damage. And dental veneers generally involve minimal pain and discomfort, with little to no side effects or recovery. You care for them just like your regular teeth- brushing, flossing, and keeping your regular dental check-ups.
When considering all of the benefits dental veneers offer, and all of the cosmetic and physical issues they can address, you’re probably interested in talking to Dr. Gilmer at our local Columbus Ohio office about this option. After the veneers are placed, you‘ll be walking out of the dentist’s office with a brand new smile!
