The Makeover Power of Porcelain Veneers

Do you dream of having whiter teeth and the smile of a celebrity? Veneers can help you achieve that!

Veneers are becoming increasingly popular because in addition to been able to restore the aesthetic aspect of a smile, these porcelain coverings are also strong, thin, and durable. Whether you have severely discoloured or stained teeth, chipped teeth, small gaps in-between front teeth, or misshaped or short front teeth, veneers can help address these problems, giving you much more confidence in your look.


Here are a few reasons why veneers might be right for you.

Feel Natural
Veneers are custom-made shells of tooth-colored material that cover the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. When they are designed and placed by a highly skilled cosmetic dentist, the results can be absolutely satisfying. But keep in mind that choosing a professional who doesn’t really understand the science of veneers and lead to disappointing results.

Once placed, veneers are very strong and will resist most of the forces placed upon them by a normal diet. In fact, when properly cared dental veneers can last from a decade to up to 30 years. This means you won’t need to continually go back to your dentist’s office to replace them.

The Process is Convenient
Generally, a full set of dental veneers can be done with three visits to the dental office and within a few weeks. In the first appointment, a consultation will be done to evaluate your teeth and plan the treatment. On the second visit, the cosmetic dentist will prepare your teeth for veneers, take an impression of your teeth and send them to the laboratory so the custom-made veneers can be made. On the last visit, the dentist will bond the veneers to the surface of your teeth.

Better Option Than Tooth Whitening
In order to make their teeth whiter, people often opt to whiten their teeth, but not all of them get the results they want. Factors that contribute for their dissatisfaction include tooth sensitivity, dental fluorosis, and intrinsic staining. So, whitening is not always the best option to get a celebrity smile. In cases like this, dental veneers can be a more suitable dental treatment option.

Easy to Maintain
The maintenance of your veneers is as simple as caring for natural teeth. You should brush and floss your teeth as you normally would to prevent dental problems and regular check-ups will ensure that your veneers are kept looking good for years to come.
