Porcelain veneers are one of the most comprehensive cosmetic dentistry procedures. Even if you are dealing with multiple aesthetic complaints, porcelain veneers can hide them all.
1. You get a straight smile without braces.
Sure, Invisalign braces have made life much better for braces-wearers, allowing them to straighten their teeth on the sly. However, if you don’t have the desire to wear braces and don’t want the responsibility of it either, porcelain veneers get the job done.
2. You can look like a celebrity.
Who hasn’t watched a movie, television program, or looked at a magazine and coveted a celeb’s perfect smile? Porcelain veneers can give you the same flawless smile – white, straight teeth that look natural and complement your overall appearance. Plus, great teeth make you look more important.
3. You’ll have more luck in love.
If you hate your teeth, you’re probably not coming out ahead where romantic relationships are concerned. Maybe you’re ashamed of your teeth so you don’t smile in pictures on your online dating profile. Perhaps you don’t return someone’s flirtations in public because your teeth would turn them off. Veneers correct all the wrongs with your smile so you look approachable, feel better about yourself, and, most of all, feel worthy of being loved.
4. Your career will improve.
It doesn’t matter if you’re in an entry-level job or are at the top of the corporate ladder, if you’re in the arts or working in retail, a better smile makes you seem that much smarter and capable. Plus, you’ll be more likely to speak up in meetings, ace the job interview, sway clients or customers, and just feel confident in your own abilities with great teeth.
5. You can say goodbye to short teeth.
Genetics don’t always do people any favors when it comes to teeth. If you have a smile that’s gummy or if you have teeth that are very short, veneers will lengthen and perfect your teeth, especially if your cosmetic dentist is a perfectionist. You’ll have a hard time stopping yourself from smiling.
6. You get whiter teeth, permanently.
Porcelain veneers are always successful as a method of teeth whitening. For patients who have teeth that are naturally yellow or stained deep within the enamel, professional teeth whitening is not an option. Porcelain veneers, however, are.
7. You don’t have to endure an invasive procedure.
Patients who are interested in veneers but not in the process of applying them, Lumineers are another type of veneer that requires little to no prep of tooth enamel. You will have the same kind of gorgeous smile, without the intensive cosmetic dentistry treatment.
8. Your teeth will never stain again.
Veneers are constructed of durable, stain-resistant porcelain. Wine, chocolate, coffee, soda – you can enjoy your vices as much as you want without worrying about what they’ll do to your smile (your waistline, however, is another story).
9. Your teeth will be stronger.
If you’ve always lived with weak enamel that is prone to breaking, cracking, or developing cavities, you will adore the strength that veneers give to your natural teeth. Veneers protect your natural tooth structure, and they are very difficult to damage (though we still do not recommend using your teeth to open packages).
10. Your smile will work better.
How your smile looks is important, but how it works is just as important. If the foundation of your teeth is strong, your teeth are not broken, and your teeth are in alignment, you will simply have a better-performing smile. Veneers make it happen.
