You’ve seen it on social media, and you have heard about it online.
We are talking about porcelain veneers, the treatment plenty of high-profile people get, and is now available for everyday individuals to acquire too! Porcelain veneers are probably the most impactful cosmetic dentistry procedures. They can transform your entire smile, giving you a full set of beautiful teeth all at once. Here are 5 reasons why people request to get this cosmetic dentistry procedure (some might surprise you):
#1 Oddly shaped teeth
Sometimes people are born with a tooth or teeth that don’t quite fit right in their mouth due to size discrepancies. Sometimes, we can use porcelain veneers to change the way that a tooth or teeth appear. In this way, we can make all your teeth complement each other and look the right size and shape! This translates into a more attractive smile.
#2 Teeth that have been worn down
Our teeth are incredibly resistant to being worn down. Considering the thousands of movements your teeth endure every day, the slight wear they receive is remarkable. Some people may grind their teeth at night whilst they sleep. Of course, they often are not aware of this and they find themselves with teeth that look worn and small. Often, we hear the common complaint, “when I smile, it looks like I don’t have teeth.” This is very commonly due to the teeth becoming so much shorter that they are hidden by the top lip. Our cosmetic dentists can help rebuild your damaged teeth to look sparkly and healthy again, thanks to porcelain veneers.
#3 Tooth trauma
Have a cracked or chipped tooth? In some more severe breaks/chips, porcelain veneers can be used to make them as good as new. Although there are other ways to repair a chipped tooth, porcelain veneers can sometimes give the most attractive and longest-lasting results with less work on your teeth than some other options.
#4 Eroded teeth
Teeth don’t just wear on the top; they can be eroded on all sides by the acidic levels found in your diet. These acids can be present in your mouth because of vomiting or reflux. This can make your teeth look discoloured as the thin enamel begins to expose the darker dentine within. Porcelain veneers can cover teeth that are eroded, giving you a smile that is not only whiter but stays white for longer, as we offer stain-resistant porcelain veneers!
#5 Gaps in that grin
The most common reason why people request porcelain veneers is to close a gap in their grins. Porcelain veneers can close that gap or space in your smile without waiting for the time that it would take for orthodontics to move your teeth. If you don’t have bite problems and you don’t want to deal with an orthodontic treatment, closing your smile gaps with porcelain veneers is the perfect alternative treatment.
