Given how obvious your smile is to everyone else, it makes sense that you would want it to always look its best. Unfortunately, things can affect your smile’s appearance that you can’t always plan for or prevent, and the desire to improve its appearance is the main reason why cosmetic dentistry is so popular. However, while improving how your smile looks, your dentist will also aim to minimize any changes to your teeth and the extent of treatment required to achieve your goal. For many patients, that makes porcelain veneers the ideal choice for addressing their unique smile concerns.

They’re ideal for a wide range of concerns

Cosmetic dentistry is an artform, and your teeth provide a very small canvas to work with. This makes minimally invasive treatment vital to ensuring that any smile improvement plan doesn’t dramatically impact the health and integrity of your natural tooth structure. Porcelain veneers, which are thin shells of highly customizable dental porcelain, can achieve this in several important ways. For instance, once bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth, veneers can instantly improve their appearance by correcting a wide range of types of issues. That includes discoloration in one or more teeth, chipped edges, lightly cracked surfaces, and much more.

Placing them isn’t complicated

Despite their ability to completely transform the appearance of your teeth, porcelain veneers don’t require a lot of changes to your teeth to do it. The nature of the wafer-thin veneers means your dentist can bond them to your teeth successfully without only preparation – by sculpting just a small amount of enamel from their front surfaces. The minimally invasive procedure makes placing multiple porcelain veneers on your teeth much simpler than you might expect, as well as the process of completely making over your smile.

Their benefits are immediate

The cosmetic benefits of placing porcelain veneers are immediate, as the highly lifelike porcelain can instantly transform the blemishes that affect your smile’s appearance. However, there are more advantages to porcelain veneers than just their appearance and convenience. Because placing them is minimally invasive, you can preserve a maximum amount of your healthy tooth structure while still dramatically improving your smile. Stronger teeth are less likely to become damaged over time, or develop tooth decay and cavities in the future.
