5 Reasons to Consider Porcelain Veneers
Dr Mark Dennes shares 5 reasons to consider porcelain veneers. Learn the benefits of porcelain veneers and enhance your smile!
1. Get whiter teeth
Porcelain veneers are a great treatment option for permanently whitening your teeth. Once they are placed, they will remain colour stable indefinitely. Composite resin veneers / direct bonding can work quite well too (they are a much cheaper option) but they will require more maintenance and can be subject to chipping and staining.
When tooth whitening on its own simply can’t give you the results you need, then porcelain veneers could be just what is required to solve your cosmetic dental problem.
2. Reshape or resize your teeth
Are your teeth chipped or misshapen? Then porcelain veneers may be your solution.
Generally, veneers are placed on the outside surfaces of your teeth. They are very thin, but when they are bonded to your tooth they are very strong and long-lasting. Depending on how ‘wide’ your smile is, you may need 6, 8 or even 10 teeth to be veneered in order to achieve a natural, harmonious appearance. All of the necessary criteria will be examined at the time of your consultation to ensure that a great result is achieved at the time of treatment.
3. Straighten your teeth
Have you always wanted straighter teeth but hate the idea of braces or other forms of orthodontics?
We encounter many patients with this issue – people who want a perfect, straight smile NOW! We understand that, and in many cases porcelain veneers may be a great way of achieving that goal. Of course, there are some situations that may not be suitable, so book a consultation to learn more about porcelain veneer treatment, and find out if it will work for you.
4. Correct gaps
A problem that a lot of patients face is that their main front teeth have gaps, showing each time they smile. For someone who is dissatisfied with the appearance of gaps, porcelain veneers can be a great solution. Without having to wear a plate or undergo braces treatment, you could solve the issue by getting porcelain veneers. They are beneficial for gaps because they effectively improve the space between teeth with a newly shaped veneer. To achieve the perfect smile you’ve always wanted, enquire today about our porcelain veneer treatment.
5. Long-lasting results
Porcelain veneers can last a very long time – 15 years is not uncommon, and sometimes much longer. On the other hand, cheaper treatments (such as composite resin bonding) will only last about 6 to 8 years. If you are considering any of these treatment options, please call us to arrange for a consultation so we can plan your treatment together.
