What are the benefits of veneers?

There can be a range of different things that we dislike about our smiles. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry treatments make it possible to address any of them, enabling up to achieve the smile that we have always dreamed of.

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular types of cosmetic dentistry treatments available in the United States today. The process involves custom-designed, thin, shell-like covers being created for the affected teeth, and then glazed in a shade to mimic or enhance your natural smile. They may not sound very remarkable in themselves, but applied properly, veneers can completely transform the appearance of your smile.

Here are some of the key benefits of choosing veneers for your smile makeover.

Fix Cosmetic Dental Issues

Porcelain veneers can be used to fix a variety of different cosmetic dental issues. These include:

  • Gaps between your teeth

  • Teeth with chipped enamel

  • Teeth that are stained or discolored

  • Teeth that aren’t uniform in height or thickness

This is because veneers sit on the outside of your teeth, over the top of your existing enamel. In doing so, they cover cosmetic imperfections such as stains or chips. They can also be used to add thickness to teeth or increase their visible height so that they look similar across your smile.

Confidence in Your Smile

By fixing the cosmetic issues listed above, you can enjoy increased confidence in the appearance of your smile. This can boost your self-esteem and give you the assurance to embrace more opportunities that come your way. Patients often report that they are happier and more successful at work and in their personal relationships when they feel confident about the way that they look.

Healthier Teeth

Who doesn’t want healthier teeth? Well, by choosing veneers, your oral health can benefit just as much as the physical appearance of your smile. This is because:

  • closing the gaps between your teeth can prevent decay from forming between them, which could lead to other problems including periodontal disease.

  • Covering the enamel of your teeth protects this part of them from decay and damage which could trigger dental problems.

  • Patients with cosmetic dentistry treatments like veneers tend to make more effort to look after their smile. This generally means more frequent and careful brushing – something which seriously benefits your oral health.

Add Strength to your Teeth

Enamel is the strongest material in our entire body. Nevertheless, our teeth work extremely hard during our lifetime and would certainly still benefit from some extra support. Veneers cover the natural enamel, protecting it from damage. They also add strength and durability to the teeth, meaning that getting veneers could improve the retainability of your smile. Better still, your veneers are also stain resistant. This ensure that these teeth should be Whaprotected from discoloration and staining, even as time goes on.

Minimally Invasive Procedure

Many patients are concerned about the invasiveness of dental procedures, worrying about pain or the risk of complications. Fortunately, the process to receive porcelain veneers is a lot less invasive than many other types of dental restoration. Using a local anesthetic, a little (approximately 0.5mm) of the thickness of the natural enamel of your teeth is filed down. Your custom designed veneers can then be attached over the top using permanent dental cement. The process is painless and very simple.


hey may look fairly fragile, but dental veneers are extremely robust. Not only can they add strength to your teeth, but with the right care and attention, your veneers could last you between 10 and 15 years, making them a great, long-term investment in your smile.
