In a world where phones can do everything except tie your shoes, we appreciate multi-function. Porcelain veneers are the pinnacle of multi-tasking cosmetic dentistry because they can transform a variety of smile imperfections at once. Since porcelain veneers cover the front side of your tooth, they can change tooth shape, cover tooth chips, close smile gaps, create even spacing, hide discoloration, and lengthen short, stubby crowns.
2. Porcelain Veneers Transform Your Smile Quickly
One of the unique benefits of porcelain veneers is speed. Since dental veneers can be placed in as little as two office visits, you can enjoy your new smile quicker than ever. The procedure begins with a consultation to determine your goals, take an impression of your teeth, and send specifications to a dental lab. At the next dental appointment, our Brighton cosmetic dentist, Dr. Thomas Villani, will place the custom-fabricated cosmetic restorations on the front of your teeth. After a quick polishing, your smile makeover is complete. Porcelain veneers are a great option for patients who need cosmetic dental work completed quickly or patients who are too busy to schedule multiple visits to the orthodontist.
3. Porcelain Veneers Are Durable
Although porcelain veneers are made from contact-lens thin porcelain, dental veneers show surprising resilience against chewing, stains, and discoloration. Since porcelain is a monolithic material, veneers hold up against normal chewing pressure like a natural tooth. In addition, porcelain is smoother and less porous than damaged tooth enamel. Therefore, veneers pick up less discoloration and stains than natural teeth. With proper dental care your porcelain veneers can last for decades to come. Our cosmetic dentist recommends brushing twice daily, flossing every day, and scheduling regular dental cleanings.
