Advantages of Porcelain Veneers
Of all the cosmetic and general dental procedures, porcelain veneers are the most versatile. No other treatment can correct gaps, chips, misalignment, and discoloration in just two visits to the dental office. While veneers may cost more than other dental procedures, they remain one of the most popular choices because of their many advantages.
Dental bonding is one option to smooth jagged or misshapen teeth or to correct chipped teeth. While this treatment improves those problems sufficiently, dental bonding can chip, become discolored, or feel rough over time and will eventually need to be replaced. It generally lasts from three to seven years depending on the person’s diet, oral hygiene, and the quality of the material used. Porcelain veneers are a much sturdier option and are incredibly resistant to staining over time. The porcelain material also looks much more natural than bonding because of its tooth-like translucency.
2. Durable and long-lasting
Veneers are a permanent option to improve the appearance and function of the smile and can last up to 20 years or more depending on the person’s diet and oral hygiene. They are incredibly durable; chipped, cracked, or broken veneers are a rare occurrence. If such problems do occur, the veneer can easily be replaced.
When it comes to straightening your teeth, braces or Invisalign® can take up to two years to provide satisfying results. Veneers will straighten teeth in only two office visits and have the added advantage of correcting asymmetry, discoloration, chipped teeth, and virtually any other aesthetic concern.
