Discover the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
If you are unhappy with the look of your smile, you may feel stuck deciding which cosmetic dentistry treatment is best suited for you. While there are many ways to upgrade the look of your smile, the benefits of porcelain veneers stand out because they offer lifelike, long-lasting, and comprehensive results.
Dr. Teddi Olszewski places porcelain veneers at her office in Northampton, MA. She can explain the benefits of veneers and how they compare to other cosmetic dentistry solutions during your consultation.
Veneers are a long-lasting, natural-looking way to conceal minor imperfections in your smile.
Veneers Deliver Comprehensive Results
While other cosmetic dentistry treatments such as teeth whitening only improve one aspect of your smile, porcelain veneers can address multiple cosmetic imperfections in one treatment:
- Stained teeth: While teeth whitening can remove stains on the outer surfaces of your teeth, they cannot address stains on the interior surfaces and deepest layers of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can cover these stains to give your smile a healthy new look.
- Chips and cracks: Although dental bonding is another commonly used cosmetic solution for concealing chips and cracks in your smile, the results are not quite as durable or lifelike as porcelain veneers.
- Minor gaps: Orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign® can take several months or even years to correct minor gaps or misalignment in your smile. If she determines that gaps in your smile are not a threat to your oral health, Dr. Olszewski can conceal them with veneers.
- Unevenly sized or shaped teeth: Teeth that are disproportionate in comparison to the surrounding teeth can be made to match the rest of your smile with porcelain veneers.
Relatively Short Treatment Time
Veneers are usually placed in two appointments, making them a great way to improve multiple aspects of your smile in a short amount of time. Many turn to veneers when they have an important upcoming event, such as a wedding or graduation.
Highly Aesthetic Results
Dental porcelain is carefully crafted to match the color, shine, and texture of your surrounding teeth. When designing your veneers, Dr. Olszweski will take your natural features into account and use only the highest quality materials to ensure the best outcomes.
Virtually No Recovery
The procedure for placing veneers is comfortable. Although some patients experience mild sensitivity, this sensation should eventually subside. Most patients can return to work and their other normal activities immediately following their veneers procedure.
If you have covered your smile for years due to cosmetic imperfections, porcelain veneers can give you a renewed sense of confidence in your appearance.
After being placed, veneers should be cared for just like your natural teeth. Although they are made from stain-resistant dental porcelain, you should still brush and floss your teeth every day to keep your smile bright and healthy. As long as you do not have any trauma, refrain from bad habits such as biting your nails or opening packages with your teeth, and visit our office every six months for checkups, they can last 10 years or more.
One of the most important benefits of porcelain veneers is how they can affect your self-esteem. If you have covered your smile for years due to cosmetic imperfections, porcelain veneers can give you a renewed sense of confidence in your appearance. By feeling more confident in your smile, you can feel more confident pursuing new relationships or professional opportunities.
