Have you ever seen television shows offering complete smile makeovers? If you’re familiar with these episodes, it’s likely you’ve seen the results veneers can deliver.
Worn, chipped, heavily filled, or irregularly shaped teeth can be dramatically approved in appearance by the use of porcelain veneers. They can completely transform the appearance of a person’s smile.
Dental veneers are tailor-made for a patient. These fine shells of porcelain have an incredibly natural appearance. Once bonded to the existing tooth, if well taken care of, porcelain veneers can last over a decade.
What types of problems do veneers fix?
Dental veneers can be used to treat a range of dental concerns, including:
- Worn-down teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Teeth that have gaps between them
- Misaligned teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth

What are the benefits of veneers?
Dental veneers offer drastic cosmetic improvement, which is of benefit both to a patient’s smile and confidence. Porcelain veneers successfully help restore a smile from chips, cracks, and discolorations, freeing you from feeling self-conscious about your smile anymore!
Porcelain veneers are easy to care for
Dental veneers are non-porous and therefore stain resistant. While low maintenance, it is still essential you maintain good oral health, including daily flossing and twice-daily brushing of teeth. Routine dental appointments are crucial to ensure you are taking proper care of your veneers.
Porcelain veneers can cover cracks, chips, and discoloration
Many minor cosmetic dental concerns are visible when you talk or smile. Porcelain veneers can cover up these concerns. During your initial consultation, your dentist can assess whether or not veneers are the best option for your specific case. For example, slight gaps between your front teeth are acceptable for veneers, but fragile teeth may benefit more from a dental crown, which can restore function, beauty, and strength to weak teeth.
Porcelain veneers can help prevent further discoloration
With proper oral hygiene, your veneers will last for many years. Once in place, the non-porous veneers will regularly come into contact with the foods and drinks you consume. Veneers not only retain their color but also protect the underlying teeth.
Porcelain veneers only require minor removal of enamel
When tooth enamel is worn away, regeneration isn’t possible. Veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed before they can be placed. Options such as dental bridges or crowns require more enamel to be removed before they can be placed.
Porcelain veneers can help boost your confidence
If you are happy with your smile, your self-esteem and confidence are higher. Porcelain veneers can be applied in as little as two appointments, giving you the smile you want in no time.
What is the lifespan of veneers?
With proper care and good oral hygiene, you can expect porcelain veneers to last for at least ten years.
