1. One Procedure, Many Changes

Porcelain veneers are an extremely powerful technique in cosmetic dentistry. They have the ability to completely transform your smile with just one procedure. Instead of relying on orthodontics to straighten your teeth and then teeth whitening to remove discoloration, you can accomplish both effects with just one procedure: porcelain veneers.

With just one procedure, porcelain veneers can address teeth that are:

  • Discolored
  • Crooked
  • Crowded
  • Gapped
  • Rotated
  • Small
  • Poorly shaped
  • Chipped

Being able to do all these things at once can make your smile makeover easier to achieve.

2. A Quick Change

Because porcelain veneers can do so much with just one procedure, they can complete your smile makeover in less time than other procedures.

In particular, porcelain veneers are a faster approach to straightening teeth, closing gaps, and rotating teeth than orthodontics. Orthodontics typically takes at least six months to complete, but porcelain veneers can be completed in one month or less. Imagine having a beautiful new smile one month from today: that can be your reality if we use porcelain veneers.

3. Complete Control over Results

Many other cosmetic dentistry procedures are limited by the current state of your teeth. With teeth whitening, your teeth won’t get any whiter than your enamel allows. This means that the natural whiteness of your enamel can mean your teeth won’t truly be white, or thin enamel means that the color of your dentin will always show through.

The same problem can happen with orthodontics. You may not realize how badly chipped or cracked your natural teeth are until they get straightened. Then you see that it wasn’t just the crookedness but also the state of your teeth that was the problem.

4. Long-Lasting Results

Porcelain veneers can achieve quick results, but these results are very durable. Veneers are no longer made of the same stuff as your dinner plates: they’re made of advanced ceramics that make them very resistant to chipping and cracking.

Porcelain veneers are also glazed in a way that makes them highly resistant to staining. As long as your veneers don’t get scratched, they won’t stain.

Overall, you can expect your results from veneers to last a decade or more. Compare that to the weeks or months teeth whitening might last, dental bonding that might last a few years, or orthodontics that has to be maintained constantly with a retainer.

5. Natural-Looking Results

One of the top benefits of porcelain veneers is that their results look natural. With Dr. Green’s eye for design, he can ensure your results look nothing but natural. This means you won’t have a smile so white that nobody will believe it’s real — unless you want it to look that way. From start to finish, your veneers will have a design, shape, and size that complements your entire face and your existing teeth.

6. Minimally Invasive Procedure

Another reason to look forward to the benefits of porcelain veneers is that the procedure is minimally invasive. This means that you won’t have a long and lengthy procedure that causes significant damage to your existing tooth structure. Instead, porcelain veneers only require that a thin amount of enamel gets removed before placing the veneers. The removal is necessary to create room for the veneers so that they don’t stick out.

7. Maintenance is Easy

You don’t have to change up anything about your oral hygiene routine to care for your veneers. All they require is good oral health. This means brushing twice daily, flossing regularly, and visiting the dentist every six months is all you really need to maintain your veneers for years to come. You should treat them just like your natural teeth. This means not chewing on ice or using your teeth as tools. If you’re prone to clenching and grinding, Dr. Green will provide you with a solution to protect your veneers from damage.

8. Perfect Treatment For Enamel Loss

Enamel loss can occur as a result of erosion from stomach acid, harsh brushing, or from consuming too many acidic drinks like soda. As the enamel wears away, your teeth will change in appearance and they will have less protection against harmful bacteria. Porcelain veneers help protect your teeth that have enamel loss.
