Oral Health Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers

Perfect teeth boost your confidence in smiling freely. But even a minor crack or discoloration can steal that confidence and take a toll on your self-esteem. Cosmetic treatments like dental veneers can help you get back your smile.

If you have minor aesthetic dental problems such as a chipped tooth, porcelain veneers in chandler may be the solution. Veneers are shells that are fixed on your teeth. They look natural and are immune to discoloration or staining. But are they good for your teeth? There are several oral health benefits associated with porcelain veneers:

They Improve Oral Hygiene

Porcelain veneers can also help you if you have crooked teeth. They are fixed to hide these blemishes and give you a straight and beautiful smile. It isn’t easy to clean misaligned teeth. Food gets lodged between them, which results in plaque, cavities, and other dental problems. 

With veneers, your teeth are straighter, and you can clean them properly. But porcelain veneers are not invincible and hence require regular and good oral hygiene.

They Strengthen Teeth

Your teeth handle cold, hot, and all other wear and tear daily as they are very strong, but they can only endure it for a while. The topmost layer of teeth, which is called enamel, thins down. It can cause problems like tooth sensitivity which affects your quality of life.

Porcelain veneers are pasted on top of your teeth, which protects the exposed dentin and strengthens your teeth.

They Give Your Teeth A Natural Look

Chipped, crooked, or stained teeth can lower your confidence, and you don’t want your teeth to look unnatural. Therefore, getting porcelain veneers in Chandler is the right choice.

 Veneers are prepared for your teeth by the dentist after matching the color of your teeth.  In order to look natural, veneers are designed based on the shape and size of your teeth, so no one will be able to tell that you have veneers unless you tell them.

They Prevent Discoloration

Your natural tooth enamel is prone to discoloration. Bad habits such as alcohol consumption, smoking, and even excess coffee intake also affect the aesthetic appearance of your smile. But veneers rest on top of your teeth, and as they deal with food intake, your natural teeth are protected. But you must not take veneers for granted.  Veneers also need to be taken care of, and they can get chipped as well.

Veneers Are Easy To Maintain

Unlike other cosmetic treatments like dentures, veneers are very low maintenance. All you need to do is to practice regular oral hygiene, i.e., brushing twice a day, rinsing your mouth with mouthwash, flossing, and regular dental checkups, and your veneers will last for almost ten years. 

Are Porcelain Veneers Safe?

Cosmetic treatments are not covered under insurance, and thus, people are often skeptical of them. Porcelain veneers are shells placed on the front of your teeth. Thus, it is natural for you to wonder whether they are safe or not.

Placing porcelain veneers involves removing a very thin layer of enamel. Next, a ceramic bonding agent is applied, and your veneers are placed. It depends on the extent of your problem, whether you are unhappy with your smile or it is just one tooth that doesn’t let you open your mouth freely. You can choose to get veneers for all of your front teeth, or you can choose to hide the lone culprit which is affecting your smile.

They are safer than other dental treatments because:

  • The procedure is less invasive. You don’t even need anesthesia. It only requires removing a thin layer and applying a bonding agent before placing the veneers.
  • It is the quickest orthodontic treatment. While dentures might take many visits and massive care, and crowns involve pain, veneers offer instant results.
  • Teeth whitening might seem like a faster treatment, but veneers also take care of chipped, cracked, and discolored teeth. Also, veneers offer better whitening.
  • The word porcelain might sow seeds of doubt in your mind about their safety, but these are made of biocompatible materials. As a result, they are safe to use in your mouth and keep infections away. Plus, they last for several years and are cost-effective.
