Reasons to Consider Porcelain Veneers for Restorative Treatment

Posted on

If you are considering improving the appearance of your teeth to enhance your overall appeal and boost your confidence, you will find there are a myriad of treatments that you could choose. Teeth whitening is one of the more popular solutions that people will seek, but this only works to remedy stained teeth. If you have other imperfections to deal with such as cracks, chips and more, you should opt for porcelain veneers. This dental treatment entails the direct adhesion of thin shells onto the front surface of your teeth. Although it is considered a cosmetic treatment, there are numerous functional benefits that it would provide you.

Capable of addressing multiple issues simultaneously

A primary advantage of choosing dental veneers as your dental treatment is that they are capable of remedying numerous flaws in one go. This ability saves you the time as well as the cost of having to engage in different types of therapies to achieve the perfect smile. Other than camouflaging severely stained teeth, dental veneers can also be used to correct gaps in your teeth, jagged teeth, cracks in your teeth and more. Some dentists may even use dental veneers to remedy a minor underbite.

Quick to install

It is not uncommon to find people having an aversion to regularly visiting the dentist. Therefore, if you are looking for a treatment option that can be done in a short time and will not require numerous subsequent visits back to the dental chair, porcelain veneers would be an ideal solution for your dental problems. The application process of dental veneers entails the removal of part of the surface of your tooth to facilitate a smooth and even fit. Patients also have the option of choosing ultra-thin veneers, which would not require any changes to the original structure of your tooth. However, it should be noted that the ultra-thin variety would be more expensive than the regular veneers. Overall, you would require perhaps a couple of visits to the dentist to complete your treatment.

Seamlessly blend in with your teeth

Another reason why porcelain veneers are increasingly rising in popularity is the natural appearance that they lend to your smile. Dental treatments such as crowns may be highly functional, but more often than not they tend to be conspicuous. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are custom designed to match the structure and the hue of your teeth, making them barely discernible.
