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 doesn't fit quite right in our mouth. Although sometimes the roots are too small and the tooth has to be pulled and replaced with a dental implant, the small tooth can often be built up to full size with a porcelain veneer. We can make all your teeth complement each other and look the same size and shape!

#2 Teeth that have been worn down

Our teeth are incredibly resistant to being worn down. Considering the thousands of movements your teeth endure everyday, the slight wear they receive is remarkable. But it may not be as impressive for some people, who find themselves with teeth that look worn and small. 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? Porcelain veneers can be used to make them as good as new. Although there are other ways to repair a chipped tooth, porcelain veneers give the most attractive and longest-lasting results (aside from dental crowns)! Considering most porcelain veneers last at a minimum of 15 years, you can enjoy your good as new teeth for a long time.

#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 dentin 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 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.
