When it comes to cosmetic dentistry procedures, porcelain veneers are the leader of the pack. These super-thin porcelain shields are designed to transform teeth and create unforgettable smile makeovers. Veneers are a powerful aesthetic change that conceals every cosmetic complaint you have about your teeth. Here are just some of the things you need to know to determine whether this is the right dental care for you.
1. They’re Stain Resistant
That’s right – porcelain is stain resistant. This reality, however, doesn’t mean that you can ignore your oral health. The veneers are not self-cleaning after all. If you go hard on the dark colas, red wines, or dark sauces without cleaning well afterward, you’ll certainly test the porcelain. But if you brush and floss daily and see your dentist every six months for a teeth cleaning and check-up, your teeth will look white and bright for a very long time.
2. Each Veneer Is Customized
Your Hampton cosmetic dentist will work with you to settle on just the right elements of your new smile so it’s white but not too white, perfect but not cookie cutter. There is no such thing as one-size-fits-all for veneers. Color, shape, size, length, and translucency are all carefully calibrated for each veneer before they are created by a dental lab just for you.
3. Veneers Are Natural Looking
One of the biggest concerns cosmetic dentistry patients have is that their smile makeover will look unnatural. Veneers are carefully constructed to look natural – and perfect. People who choose this treatment look like they won the DNA lottery and landed the most stunning natural smile possible.
4. They Are Long Lasting
Everyone who gets a cosmetic dentistry upgrade wants to trust that their changes will last. Veneers are durable and incredibly strong so they not only strengthen your smile as a whole, they can last for decades with proper care.
5. They Take Two Dental Visits to Complete
Two dental visits for a permanent, flawless smile makeover isn’t a lot to ask. Once you’re confirmed as a good porcelain veneers candidate, the planning will begin. On the first visit, you and your Hampton dentist will settle on all the elements of each veneer so they are just right for your face shape, skin tone, and more. Teeth will be prepped to make room for the veneers. On the second visit, the veneers will be tested out to make sure they look right before they’re bonded permanently in place. Voila – a brand new smile and a brand new you.
