5 Reasons Porcelain Veneers are the Gold Standard
Are you feeling insecure because of your smile? Do you feel shy or awkward around other people because of your gapped, chipped, crooked, or imperfect teeth?
If your goal is a straighter, brighter, more beautiful, symmetrical smile that you can confidently show off to the world, porcelain veneers are the solution you’ve been waiting for!
What are Dental Veneers?
It’s possible to get the smile of your dreams with veneers, which are very thin shells that are custom-made to fit over natural teeth and correct various imperfections–both structural and aesthetic.
Veneers are available in various materials and types including composite veneers, Lumineers, palatal veneers, temporary veneers, and porcelain veneers. But, porcelain veneers are the gold standard, and our only recommendation, for good reason.
Why Porcelain Veneers?
The saying, ‘You get what you pay for, is easily applicable here. Dental health is not the place to skimp with inferior ‘money saving’ options that could easily cost much more in the long run. Though the upfront cost of porcelain veneers is higher than other options, they provide great value for the money when considering the many benefits.
Not only is the process of applying porcelain veneers simple, non-invasive, fairly quick, and comfortable; it also offers high-quality results that stand the test of time.
Here are the top five reasons why porcelain veneers are the gold standard:
- Porcelain veneers can mimic the teeth’s natural appearance.
Out of all the different types of dental veneers, porcelain veneers look and feel the most natural. Unlike composite veneers that seem lackluster, porcelain veneers have a translucent, reflective quality to them that makes them practically indistinguishable from natural teeth.
With porcelain veneers, you can talk and smile with confidence. There’s no need to be conscious of your smile or worry about people thinking your teeth are fake.
- Porcelain veneers are durable and long-lasting.
Porcelain veneers are much less prone to cracking and chipping compared to Lumineers and composite veneers.
Moreover, porcelain veneers are generally resistant to stains and discoloration, which means that they can easily last 10 years with good oral hygiene, proper care, and regular dental check-ups. Unlike other quick-fix cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers are a cost-effective and long-lasting solution to improving your smile.
- Porcelain veneers can be customized to suit your looks and preferences.
Porcelain veneers are created using an impression of your teeth, so you can expect the shells to boast a perfect fit against the gumline. Some dental offices, like Dental Studio 101, have in-house labs where a master ceramist creates veneers in a shade customized by you to perfectly fit over your teeth and suit the shape of your face.
- Porcelain veneers are easy to care for and maintain.
Because dental veneers are non-porous, they can resist stains and cavities better than natural teeth. However, proper dental hygiene is important to support your investment!
Luckily, caring for porcelain veneers is more or less the same as caring for natural teeth. You need to brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss at least once a day to get rid of plaque, schedule regular dental checkups, and schedule professional cleanings at least twice a year.
- Porcelain veneers are the best and easiest way to transform a smile.
Porcelain veneers can correct most cosmetic and structural dental issues that cause insecurity. Chips, gaps, misalignment, and crooked or yellow teeth–porcelain veneers can solve it all in a single treatment! It’s like undergoing multiple procedures in one dental visit!
Aside from correcting common dental issues, you can also use porcelain veneers to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Depending on the change you want to see, your dentist can make your teeth larger, whiter, brighter, or more symmetrical with porcelain veneers.
