What exactly are veneers? Simply put, they are thin, custom-shaped layers of dental porcelain or composite resin. These layers are applied to the front of your teeth, making your smile straighter, whiter, safer, and more stain-resistant.
How Do Veneers Protect My Teeth?
Teeth are coated in enamel, and enamel is tough stuff. It needs to be, in order to protect the softer, more sensitive insides of the tooth. But enamel isn’t impervious. It’s breakable and subject to weakness, just like anything else.
Veneers are replaceable, but enamel isn’t. Unfortunately, it’s one of the substances that our bodies cannot rebuild on its own. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.
Veneers provide an extra layer of protection between your teeth and the tough jobs they have to deal with. This is especially helpful when there are areas of the enamel that have already been thinned or weakened.
How Do They Improve My Aesthetic?
Veneers are an excellent level of extra tooth protection, but that’s not all they’re good for. They are shade-customizable, making them a great way to have a perfectly white, but entirely natural-looking smile that fits right in with the rest of your look.
Not only that, but porcelain veneers especially are highly stain-resistant. That perfect look isn’t just here for a few days after the procedure. With proper veneer maintenance, you can have the same stunning results for years to come.
On top everything else, veneers can camouflage other tiny imperfections. Perhaps one of your teeth is ever-so-slightly tipped, or there’s a minor gap—things that really don’t warrant extensive treatment. Because veneers are custom-designed, they can easily hide all those things, giving your teeth a crispness that raises your smile from great to spectacular.
