Having any imperfections in your teeth can make you self-conscious about your smile, but dental veneers can cover up any minor chips, cracks, or fractures. They can even cover up any intrinsic discolorations. They can even be an ideal restoration for patients who have naturally small or irregularly shaped teeth. And there are many additional benefits to be gained from undergoing this procedure.
Veneers mimic the natural light reflection properties of natural teeth. Dental enamel is translucent, and as a result, light shines through this layer and bounces off the underlying dentin, giving teeth a glowing sheen. Because of this, porcelain veneers are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, meaning no one will be able to tell the difference.
Veneers also offer several advantages over similar procedures. Veneers made out of porcelain are stain-resistant, and they can maintain their glowing appearance for many years. Other restorations provide less dramatic results, and you may need touch-ups in order to keep their brightness. Your veneers will be specifically designed just for you, so they will resemble your natural teeth. And veneers are typically less expensive than dental crowns.
