How Porcelain Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Have you ever looked at someone and thought, “My goodness, their smile is brilliant! How are their teeth so white?”

Well, porcelain veneers may be part of the answer. 

Porcelain veneers are like “shells” that fit over a tooth. They can improve a tooth’s colour, shape, and overall functionality. Furthermore, porcelain veneers can help to create a tooth that looks perfect and natural. This can improve your appearance, your confidence, and so much more.

Of course, many people aren’t familiar with what porcelain veneers are and how they can help you. At Mosman Fine Dental, we’re here to help, and we wanted to explain the process of porcelain veneers a little bit more to you.

How Can Porcelain Veneers Improve Your Smile?

A porcelain veneer fits directly over your tooth, acting as a cosmetic “shield” to cover up previous damage. Well-designed, custom veneers can be made to match the overall shape of your mouth and tooth. It can also be tooth-coloured, so it looks natural. This natural look ensures that it doesn’t appear as if you have had any cosmetic improvements done. Your teeth simply seem perfect.

The technology behind veneers has come a long way over the past few decades, with dentists having more and more options to determine what type of veneer will work best for you. Of course, this depends on various circumstances, including how damaged your teeth are, what tooth in particular needs a veneer, and the potential risks to your mouth for long-term damage. 

What Is the Process for Getting Veneers?

Getting a veneer over natural teeth is not a tremendously complex process. 

First, you’ll visit your dentist and explain what you are looking for and why you want a veneer. Next, the dentist will examine your existing teeth, noting any crooked teeth, dental crowns, and your natural smile. They will also do a health assessment — any invasive procedure carries risks, and your dentist will want to ensure that you are prepared for this procedure. This dental consultation will give you a better idea of what type of dental veneers you are looking for and if cosmetic dentistry is truly right for you. 

At the second visit, your dentist will reshape the tooth to prepare it for the veneer. They may also give you temporary veneers that protect your tooth until the regular veneer returns from the lab.

At the final visit, you will get your permanent veneer installed. Your dentist will also give instructions on how to care for the veneers. 

Advantages of Porcelain Veneers

The goal of a porcelain veneer is to be as natural looking as possible. If left unchanged, you may find that your smile becomes unsightly thanks to dental stains that have occurred over time. This minimally invasive technique can give you a “Hollywood smile” that can hide imperfections and make you feel confident when you smile. Veneers provide the smile of your dreams, as veneers reshape your teeth to make them much more attractive.

Porcelain veneers can also give you an extra layer of protection. Protecting your natural teeth from damage in a natural way can help ensure that you suffer less enamel erosion. Depending on your veneer type, your veneers may also be stain resistant. This will allow you to continue to eat and drink as you’d like, needing fewer teeth whitening procedures in the future. 

Finally, veneers can prevent long-term damage. A dental veneer protects your natural tooth structure. With proper care, you can ensure that the underlying tooth is protected. 

Porcelain veneers are extremely popular tools that anyone with access to a dentist can use. They can be incredibly useful for improving your smile, making you proud to show off your teeth, and protecting your teeth from long-term damage. 

Thankfully, the process behind getting porcelain veneers isn’t particularly complicated: Go to the dentist and get started. Furthermore, the benefits behind porcelain veneers are so much more than cosmetic: Yes, they can enhance your smile, but they can make it easier to chew and talk.
