Just because you weren’t born with a beautiful smile doesn’t mean you cannot have one now. Cosmetic dentistry interventions, such as porcelain veneers, can conceal gaps, stains, chips and/or other dental imperfections. At our Columbus family dentistry office, we frequently apply porcelain veneers so our patients have not only healthy teeth, but also cosmetically pleasing ones. If you are considering porcelain veneers, here are five benefits.
1. They Can Correct a Number of Imperfections
Porcelain veneers have long been a favorite of Hollywood celebrities because they can completely change a smile. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Tom Cruise and many other stars have made their teeth appear straighter, more even and less damaged, thanks to the application of dental veneers. The ability to achieve a smile makeover in three visits or less can make a big difference in your smile.
2. They Require Few Changes to Your Teeth
Alternatives to veneers are porcelain crowns. While crowns can also enhance your smile, they require making significant changes to your teeth. Porcelain veneers involve removing only a small portion of outer dental enamel, typically less than a millimeter thick. This allows Dr. Myers to ensure the veneers can rest flush with your surrounding teeth, making them appear more natural.
3. You Can Select Your Desired Tooth Shade
Veneers are highly customizable. You can discuss with Dr. Myers your goals for treatment, including how white you want your teeth to appear and your desired tooth shape. Dr. Myers can even utilize temporary veneers you can “try on” to ensure you will be happy with your permanent results.
4. They Are Natural-Looking
Veneers are designed to give you the smile you always wanted, but were not born with. Dr. Myers’ experience in applying and shaping them means you can get the results you desire quickly and effectively.
Porcelain veneers are designed to last as least five years -- but some last as long as 20 years or more. This means you can enjoy the cosmetic benefits of porcelain veneers over a long-term period. Because they are stain-resistant, they will not become darker over time.
