How Porcelain Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Having a smile that you are proud of does a lot for your mental health and your confidence. In many cases, it can also affect your dental health and overall health. This is why many people are worried about their teeth and look for ways to improve their smile. Dental veneers can be an effective way to give you a better-looking smile while addressing important dental health issues. If you want to improve your smile, here is a look at how porcelain veneers can help you.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a translucent laminate for your teeth .  Veneers essentially resurface the enamel and are free of stains, dents, chips and cracks.  Porcelain is very hard and durable. Veneers are easy to place, too. They are seamlessly and attached to the surface of your teeth using a special dental cement and a UV light to harden it quickly. Once applied, they can last up to 20 years or longer, with minimal maintenance . Most people have veneers placed on the front eight teeth, although veneers can be placed on as few as one to three teeth to blend with the existing dentition.

Repair Chips and Cracks

One of the leading reasons why people choose to have porcelain veneers placed is because they have damaged ,chipped, or worn out teeth. Since the veneer adheres to the front of your tooth, it can cover chips and cracks in your teeth. This is especially beneficial if you have a fractured tooth corner or incisal edge.  You may still need some other dental work to fix these problems, but veneers can make your teeth look full and healthy again.

“Where the Magic Happens”

Veneers don’t have to fit the exact shape of your existing teeth, which can be an asset. If you have small gaps between your teeth, or crowding veneers can cover those gaps if they are sized correctly.
