What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are made using dental-grade porcelain material, thereby giving you a natural appearance as they match the exact color of your natural teeth. There are many benefits of using them over other types of veneers. Apart from retaining the aesthetic appearance of your smile, they are also a durable option to choose from.
When you opt for them, you don’t have to go for other dental procedures to restore your cracked or chipped teeth. They are durable, and if maintained properly, porcelain veneers can last up to 5-10 years. You can get in touch with us, schedule an appointment, and we will perform the procedure within a single sitting only.
Why Do I Need Porcelain Veneers?
- Worn Enamel
The enamel of your teeth may wear out or become damaged because of consumption of aerated drinks, tea, coffee, and smoking. Porcelain veneers are a great option to correct your smile affected by worn enamel.
- Cracked or Chipped Teeth
External trauma, biting anything too hard, or an accidental fall may cause chipping or crack in your teeth, thus affecting your smile. Veneers are a perfect solution to restore cracked or chipped teeth.
Some people have abnormal spacing between their teeth since their birth, which keeps on widening with age. In this situation, we may recommend the use of porcelain veneers.
- Uneven Teeth
The factors such as grinding, gnashing, or eating hard foods may lead to uneven teeth, which may further create bite issues. Porcelain veneers are used to restore uneven teeth.
- Stained Teeth
The discoloration of your teeth affects your aesthetic appearance at large. Sometimes, even professional cleaning doesn’t help. We use porcelain veneers to cover your stained teeth and to enhance your smile.
