5 Popular Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

You’ve got a problem with your smile, and you’re looking for a quick fix.

Porcelain veneers just might be the way to go.

Veneers are thin, porcelain shells custom-made to cover the fronts of teeth. They’re popular among people wanting to create a uniform smile or address damaged teeth. And porcelain veneers are a quick fix.

Here are five popular benefits of porcelain veneers from Dr. Brian LaBombard and the experts at Airport Dental Care in Austin, Texas. 

1. Improved appearance

The idea of veneers is to create a flawless, uniform finish for teeth that are anything but uniform. They can cover chips, cracks, and gaps, improving your smile instantly. And veneers are stain-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about discoloration.

Also, your veneers are customized to match the shade of your teeth exactly. In fact, they look so much like your natural teeth that most people won’t be able to tell you’re wearing veneers.

2. Faster than orthodontics

One big advantage of veneers is that treatment with veneers is much faster than orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics involves wearing braces or clear aligners to move teeth gradually so they’re straight and even. The orthodontic process takes a while, usually at least a year.

Veneers can cover crooked teeth and gaps, and the process only takes a couple of appointments.

3. Long-lasting solution

Porcelain veneers resist staining and decay better than your natural teeth. With proper care, they can last 10-15 years. This care involves brushing at least twice a day, flossing at least once, using mouthwash, and visiting your dentist for regular cleanings and checkups.

4. Minimally invasive

The process of getting veneers is simple. Dr. LaBombard removes a small amount of enamel from your teeth to prepare them for the porcelain shells.

He also takes an impression of your smile so your custom veneers can be manufactured to fit perfectly. When they’re ready, Dr. LaBomboard bonds the veneers to your teeth with an adhesive.

5. Increased confidence

If your smile looks and feels better, you look and feel better too. Veneers can make you more comfortable in social situations and improve your overall mental health. Patients who previously felt like they had to hide their smile might actually enjoy seeing it in the mirror or a photo.
