While we would like to congratulate you for choosing porcelain veneers to transform the beauty of your smile, we have a feeling we may be a bit premature. Just because a patient learns about the many ways veneers can improve their smiles by camouflaging, filling spaces, and improving whiteness does not mean a patient is instantly sold on the idea. In fact, we commonly find that the less frequently touted benefits of veneers become the very information that helps patients feel confident about choosing this cosmetic treatment. To help, we have compiled important information that can assist in setting your mind at ease. Ready to learn more about what makes veneers such a wonderful solution? Consider the following:
You Can Wear Them For A Long Time
True, porcelain veneers are crafted out of very thin layers of porcelain. You may associate this with extreme fragility. However, your veneers are constructed to offer exceptional durability. As long as you continue to take care of your smile (which is simple to accomplish) you do not need to worry too much about damage. Brush two times a day and floss once a day – it’s truly that simple.
Your Smile Will Look Natural
Speaking of porcelain, you will be happy to find out that it is a material quite similar to your own natural tooth tissue. Like your teeth, your veneers will have a translucent quality, which means you can gently see through them. The way your veneer is composed (out of porcelain layers) is similar to the way your teeth are constructed (out of multiple translucent tissue layers). Your smile will continue to look natural – just greatly improved.
You Can Keep Eating the Foods You Love
Veneers are known in part for their resilience. This means that in addition to durability, you can expect them to retain the shade they display when you first receive them. Granted, they are not immune to staining, so you may need to make a bit of an effort to brush your teeth after you eat staining foods. However, drinking a cup of coffee will not immediately result in discoloration.
