Why Porcelain Veneers?

If you have stained, cracked, crooked, twisted, spaced, broken, tooth decay or a wide gap between two teeth, then porcelain veneers are the perfect option for you. It is the most effective and efficient cosmetic dental procedure to improve the appearance of teeth. The placement will help you hide all these imperfections and achieve a beautiful smile. If you have a habit of grinding teeth, veneers can be highly beneficial. They are great for aesthetics, replacing old fillings and fixing existing cavities.

What are the health benefits of veneers?

Porcelain veneers do have multiple health benefits. When they are applied to weaker teeth, even if they don’t have some sort of decay, it will help to strengthen them. The porcelain veneers provide extra support to the teeth. They help to slightly correct the crooked teeth and bite patterns with time. Another health benefit is that they help to promote dental hygiene. People who have veneers begin to notice the beautiful and bright natural smile that pushes them to adopt better dental hygiene practices.

Who is the right candidate for the procedure?

Before you undergo any type of dental procedure, the dentist needs to determine whether you are the right fit for the procedure or not. The same goes for veneers. Veneer placements are highly personalized. Hence, you should meet the required criterion to get them. Veneers can be placed only when there is a certain degree of crookedness. The angle needs to be light enough for the veneers to correct the problem. If there are any other problems like tooth decay or gum infections, all these need to be addressed before placing the veneers. When the latest bonding technologies are being used, it is not necessary to have sufficient enamel.

How long do veneers last?

The life of the porcelain veneers is dependent on various factors. On average it lasts for about 15 years. If the veneer has been well taken care of it can easily last for over 20 years. Being bonded to the tooth enamel instead of the dentin can make the veneer last longer. The various factors which impact the life of the veneer include, how often you visit the dentist and what your dental hygiene practices are. Underlying dental issues and their treatment also impact its longevity. After the veneers have been placed you should avoid various habits. Like grinding your teeth, clenching, biting hard objects or any other habit which involves putting excess pressure on the teeth.
