Understanding the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

When you smile at yourself in the mirror, do you see what you want to see? At Family Dental Centre, we think that every deserves to be proud of their smile. When you feel good about your smile, you will present yourself to the world in a more confident and outgoing fashion. This change in demeanour can affect so many areas of your life, from your professional success to your social life. The question is, how can you get there if your smile isn’t what you want it to be.

About Porcelain Veneers

At Family Dental Centre, we are dentists that offer porcelain veneers in Edensor Park—among many other dental services and treatments. If you want to improve the look of your front teeth (and you want to do it in a minimally invasive fashion), then veneers are worth considering.

If you want to learn more about veneers or discuss whether you are a good candidate for this procedure, you can, of course, consult with our dentists at Edensor Park. Before we get to the consultation stage, though, let’s just try to give a basic overview of what porcelain veneers are and why they are popular.

If you’ve ever looked at a celebrity and marvelled at how straight and pearly white their teeth are, there’s a chance that you were marvelling at the effects of veneers. Veneers are thin slabs of porcelain that cover up the surface of your teeth. They are popular because they recreate the natural look of a tooth quite accurately. For people who are unhappy with the shape or colour of their front teeth, veneers are a potential option for providing a more desirable aesthetic.

With that said, though, aesthetics isn’t the only reason that you might consider porcelain veneers in Edensor Park. On the contrary, while patients are often attracted to veneers because they look so natural, they also have practical benefits. In some cases, porcelain veneers work to make slight alterations in tooth positions. As a result, dentists will occasionally use veneers to close small, minor gaps or spaces between teeth.

The other functional benefit of porcelain veneers is their strength. When you decide to have porcelain veneers placed on your teeth, you are essentially replacing some of the enamel on those teeth with the new porcelain layer. Porcelain veneers are comparable in strength to enamel, which means that they can provide a similar level of protection to your teeth.
