Why are porcelain veneers in demand?
A pretty smile often tops the most-desirable quality for many and if natural doesn’t work best for you, there’s no need to press the panic button. Porcelain veneers work their magic for you today. Porcelain veneers help improve your smile as fit their thin ceramic pieces onto the front of your teeth. This helps to hide discolouration, brighten one’s teeth and thus make for a prettier smile.
Remember the pros and cons
However, everything has its pros and cons and if you are opting for porcelain veneers, you’d do well to keep these in mind:
- Porcelain veneers are extremely natural-looking. The dental cement that attaches them is different from the yellow dentin layer that lies below a tooth enamel. Hence light reflects off porcelain veneers, giving it a natural shine and thus a natural-looking, beautiful smile.
However, porcelain veneers have the potential to break or come off. A dentist may be ale to reattach a veneer if it comes off, but if it breaks, there’ll be a whole lot of expenses involved in getting a new veneer fixed. It is advisable to check your porcelain veneers with your dentist from time to time.
- Porcelain veneers are exceptionally stain-resistant as stain-producing just rolls off its ceramic surface. You can continue sipping your favourite caffeine drink or red wine without having to worry about the veneers breaking off. However, going in for porcelain veneers, means your teeth are that much more sensitive now as a small amount of enamel has been removed from your natural tooth before applying the veneers.
Porcelain veneers are an irreversible process and for many this process has provided them with benefits that far outweigh the negatives. Wish to join the coveted beautiful smiles list? The choice is yours.
