6 Reasons to Love Porcelain Veneers

Article by Dr Raha Sepehrara

If you’re not happy with the appearance of your smile, it can harm your confidence. Cracks, chips, stains, misalignments, or even misshapen teeth can ruin the look of your smile, and you might find yourself self-consciously hiding it from those around you. 

These days, everyone seems to have beautiful smiles. From movie stars to TikTok influencers, the sense that everyone else is perfect can make you more judgemental of your own smile. 

The great news is that an Oscar-worthy smile is within your grasp. Porcelain veneers are fine shells that cover imperfections in your teeth and enhance their appearance. 

Here are some of the reasons so many people love dental veneers. 

1. Porcelain Veneers Instantly Improve Your Smile

Because porcelain veneers are custom-made for your teeth, they’re ready for us to place on the day of your procedure. Once placed, there’s no waiting around to see the results; you’ll see your revitalised smile immediately when you first look in the mirror. 

Dental veneers are life-changing for many people, and whether you like to share Instagram selfies or not, you’ll want the world to see your new smile. 

2. Porcelain Veneers Are Versatile

The great thing about dental veneers is that you can use them to fix a whole range of problems. Porcelain veneers are often used to cover cracks and chips in teeth, but they’re also great for improving the shape of small or misshapen teeth and hiding stains and discolouration. 

In some situations, veneers can even make slightly misaligned teeth look straight. Because they address so many problems at once, you’ll get the smile you’ve always wanted. 

3. The Porcelain Veneers Procedure Is Simple

You’d think that making your smile look bright and straight would take a long time. You might also expect the procedure to be complex. Veneer placement is quick and straightforward. 

To begin, we’ll assess your smile to ensure veneers are the best option for you. Before we can place your bespoke veneers, we’ll need to get the lab to make them. We’ll need to take digital scans and impressions of your teeth so the master craftspeople can create the perfect smile for you. 

Once your veneers are ready, we’ll place them. We need to remove a small portion of the enamel from each tooth so that the veneer sits well; then, we’ll bond the new coating in place. All that’s left to do is for you to smile. 

4. Porcelain Veneers Protect Your Teeth

Dental veneers do more than just make your smile look amazing; they can actually aid your oral health. 

Cracked and chipped teeth are compromised. This means that they could easily become infected if bacteria enter the cracks. If this happens, you may need a root canal treatment. By placing veneers on damaged teeth, we’ll create a barrier that keeps the harmful bacteria out. 

5. Porcelain Veneers Look Natural

The fine porcelain used in your veneers will perfectly colour-match your natural teeth. Because the size and shape of teeth are also carefully designed to match the rest of your smile, nobody will even know that you have veneers. 

6. Porcelain Veneers Last

Porcelain veneers aren’t a quick temporary fix; they’re built to last. With the proper care and attention, your dental veneers should last for many years. 

To look after your veneers, you just need to clean your teeth twice daily, floss, visit your dentist, and avoid chewing anything that could crack the porcelain.
