Do Porcelain Dental Veneers Offer More Benefits?

dca-blog_article-18_porcelain-dental-veneers-benefits

With so many advances in cosmetic dentistry, the affordable dentist can offer patients a number of options for correcting cosmetic flaws. Dental veneers are one of the most popular treatments. Porcelain veneers offer more benefits than their composite peers. Composite veneers are removable treatments that are attached to the surface of the tooth. A porcelain veneer is permanent and lasts for many years with proper hygiene and preventative dental care. Porcelain is a durable, translucent substance that looks and functions just like the enamel of a natural tooth. Unlike some other dental restorations, porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains and are an excellent choice for correcting the following cosmetic dental problems:

  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Unwanted spaces between teeth
  • Minor bite irregularities
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Tooth discoloration and stains

The Process of Getting Dental Veneers

The initial consultation involves a thorough dental exam and evaluation of the patient’s dental health and personal needs. The procedure of applying veneers includes several steps and may require more than one visit. First, the tooth is prepared. A temporary veneer is fitted while a dental laboratory creates a permanent porcelain veneer that matches the patient’s natural tooth color. During the final visit, the temporary veneer is removed, and the permanent one is bonded to the tooth’s surface.

Dental Care for Porcelain Veneers

With good oral hygiene and regular dental care from an affordable dentist, porcelain dental veneers can provide gorgeous smiles for decades. Routine check-ups can ensure that minor problems such as nighttime tooth-grinding or problems with adjacent teeth are discovered and treated promptly. To learn how veneers can transform your smile, make a dental appointment today to discuss your options.
