6 Great Reasons to Upgrade Your Smile With Porcelain Veneers

Article by Dr Raha Sepehrara

Throughout our lives, our teeth can become damaged and discoloured. These unwanted changes can cause us to lose confidence in our smiles while opening us up to potential dental problems too.

Porcelain veneers are an effective way to remedy all kinds of problems with your teeth. They can cover cracks, chips, and stains while making your teeth appear fuller and healthier. 

But there’s so much more to veneers than this. In this guide, we’ll talk you through some of the fantastic reasons to upgrade your smile using porcelain veneers. 

1. Veneers Look Completely Natural

When choosing to have any cosmetic dental procedure, one of the first things you’ll probably worry about is whether everyone will notice that you’ve had work done. 

While friends and family who know you well will notice a refreshed radiance about your smile, porcelain veneers look no different to natural teeth. They’ll just look great.

Veneers are thin shells that are specially made to fit over your teeth. Once placed, they’ll permanently enhance your smile naturally. 

2. Porcelain Veneers Eliminate Stains

Tea, coffee, red wine, spicy food, and even dark fruits can stain your smile. Added to this, as we age, our teeth’s enamel naturally thins, causing the darker-coloured dentin below to show through. This results in your teeth becoming yellow.

Veneers enhance the colour of your teeth instantly. There’s no need to go through whitening treatments. Once we’ve placed your veneers, you’ll instantly have a fresh new smile. 

Of course, if you only have veneers on a few teeth, you may want to consider whitening the rest of your smile simultaneously.

3. Veneers Can Protect Your Teeth

Chips and cracks in your teeth make it easier for bacteria to penetrate inside and cause further dental issues such as root canal infections. Not only that but a crack or chip could get worse when exposed.

Veneers are a great way of covering chips and cracks, improving the tooth’s appearance straight away. But, by covering the tooth, you’ll reduce the risk of infection.

4. There’s No Additional Maintenance Required

If you’re worried about having to do anything out of the ordinary to look after your veneers, don’t. Hopefully, you’re already doing everything already. You’ll only need to practice good oral hygiene and visit us regularly for a checkup. 

This means thoroughly brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing, and using mouthwash. 

5.  Veneers Are Durable and Long-Lasting

Porcelain is an excellent material that will stand the test of time, staying in place meal after meal. Not only will your veneers last for many years, but they’ll look great throughout their lifespan too.

While everyday chewing and biting is no problem for veneers, just like your natural teeth, they could become damaged if you chew on anything too hard such as a pen lid or ice. 

6. You’ll Love Your New Smile

Veneers will renew your confidence and improve your self-esteem. In one short procedure, you could forever change how you look at your smile. 

Many patients can’t wait to show off their new smile, whether that means celebrating with friends, family, and partners or immediately snapping and uploading that Insta-worthy selfie, the feel-good factor is high when you get veneers.
