If you have an issue with your smile, you naturally want to do something about it. By getting in touch with our office in La Jolla, you can talk with an experienced cosmetic dentist about methods of improving the appearance of your smile, such as the use of porcelain veneers. There are a number of benefits of porcelain veneers, which can help to make your smile one you are truly proud to show off.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Another term for them is dental veneers. They are thin sheets of dental ceramic, which have been crafted to go over the front part of the teeth as a means to hide any cosmetic problems that might exist. They are a very popular cosmetic dentistry option for those looking for a better smile, and they are often a part of smile makeovers, and you will find a number of benefits of porcelain veneers.
Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?
One of the biggest benefits is their versatility. The veneers are able to take care of many different types of dental problems including the following.
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Stained and discolored teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Crooked teeth
In some cases, the porcelain veneers are the best option for a fast and effective makeover to your smile.
One of the other benefits of the porcelain veneers is the appearance. You will find that they actually look very natural when they have been placed on your teeth, so it is impossible to tell that it is not your natural teeth.
You will also enjoy the simplicity of the process when it comes to getting the veneers. The dentist will remove just a small portion of the tooth to accommodate the veneers, and will then place them. It generally takes just one or two visits, and if you are getting ultra-thin veneers, you might not even have to have any of the tooth structure removed. Because of this simplicity, they have gained the nickname instant orthodontics.
Another of the nice benefits of porcelain veneers is their stain resistance. They are able to last a long time without discoloration. Of course, you still need to take good care of your teeth.
