Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Do you love the appearance of your smile? If not, porcelain veneers may be the ideal solution! This is one of the most popular cosmetic restorations currently available, for many reasons. They are versatile, conservative, and fast, yet they can achieve dramatic improvement. In the hands of an experienced, artistically talented dentist such as Dr. Kevin Rykard, the results are nothing short of amazing.
The many benefits of porcelain veneers include:
- Preserve tooth structure – Very little, if any, tooth material is removed in preparation for veneers.
- Correct crooked teeth – If you only want cosmetic correction, and do not need bite adjustment, veneers offer a speedy alternative to orthodontics.
- Cover stains and blemishes – Although a veneer is very thin, it covers the visible part of the treated tooth, hiding any flaws.
- Repair minor damages – Cavities, broken teeth, and other serious damage calls for a sturdier restoration such as a crown or filling. However, issues such as chips and fine fractures can often be repaired with veneers before they escalate into serious decay.
- Alter the size, or shape – The tooth can be reduced or built up before a veneer is applied, to create the ideal proportions and dimensions.
- Replace worn enamel – A porcelain veneer essentially serves as artificial tooth enamel, protecting softer layers beneath it.
- Close spaces – Some individuals naturally have wide spaces between their teeth. Porcelain veneers can be designed slightly wider than the natural teeth, eliminating the space.
- Simplify oral hygiene – Straight, smooth, uniform teeth are much easier to clean than uneven, gapped, or crooked ones are.
- Love your smile! We believe that smile should multiply your happiness, rather than bringing a flood of embarrassment to your most joyful moments – and veneers are a great way to accomplish that.
