Smile Again Quickly

One of the best things about porcelain veneers is that they’ll have you smiling again quickly. With porcelain veneers, you can have your smile redone in a short period of time. Often, you’ll be enjoying your new smile in a month or less. If you’re trying to straighten your teeth, for example, and you try other techniques like orthodontics, you may be waiting a year or more before you can show off your smile.

Pick Your Smile

You might think you’re stuck with the teeth you have, but that’s not necessarily true. With porcelain veneers, you can design the smile you want–you don’t have to settle for the smile you have.

Porcelain veneers don’t replace your teeth, but they can reshape them so completely that it’s like having an entirely new smile. You can design a completely new smile. You’re not stuck with the family smile. This can retain the parts of your smile that you like (if there are any), while redoing pretty much everything else you don’t like.

Nobody Needs to Know

If you have braces, it’s hard to keep that a secret from people around you. Even with subtle brackets and wires, people are going to notice over the next year. But with porcelain veneers, the changes to your smile can be so natural-looking that people won’t have to know that you’ve had work done on your smile. And even during the process, you’ll have very natural-looking temporaries that won’t give themselves away.

Of course, if you make really dramatic changes in your smile, these are going to speak for themselves, but at that point, you can simply enjoy the compliments that roll in about your new, beautiful smile.

Long-Lasting Results

Are you tired of having to get your teeth whitened every couple of months? Don’t like the idea of wearing a retainer for the rest of your life? Unhappy with dental bonding that chips, stains, or flakes off in a couple years? All of these procedures require extensive maintenance to make sure they last–or they just don’t last at all.

But that’s not the case with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant and acid resistant. They can last for ten years and more when they’re properly fitted and cared for. What is proper maintenance for veneers? Just brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits. Nothing more complicated than that.
