Thanks to selfies and social media, people are paying more attention to the health and appearance of their teeth than ever before. Dental veneers are one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry today, and for good reason. They provide a quick and affordable solution to a range of cosmetic dental issues, and they help protect the health of your teeth as well. Take a look at the following top 5 reasons to get dental veneers. 

  • Treat and prevent discoloration

Whether your tooth enamel is stained from the beverages you drink or worn away and made transparent by the acidic foods you eat, dental veneers can help address the discoloration. Veneers can be color-matched to the surrounding teeth and used to create a bright, even and radiant smile. And because porcelain veneers are even more stain resistant than natural teeth, they can help prevent tooth future tooth discoloration as well.  

  • Protect tooth enamel

Genetics, acidic foods, carbonated drinks, certain medications, and hard-bristled toothbrushes can weaken tooth enamel, putting your teeth and your oral health at risk. Dental veneers can provide an additional layer to teeth with weakened enamel, protecting them against damage, bacteria, and other potential dental problems. 

  • Seal and conceal cracks

Our tooth enamel is strong and durable, but still vulnerable to cracking. The most common causes of cracked tooth enamel are trauma, such as from an accident or collision, pressure from teeth grinding, and biting or chewing on hard objects. Cracked tooth enamel isn’t just aesthetically unattractive, it also makes the tooth vulnerable to bacteria and infection.  Dental veneers do double duty by sealing the cracks to prevent bacteria from entering the tooth, and concealing them for a more pleasing appearance. 

  • Mimic appearance of natural teeth

Although there are other materials that can be used to correct discoloration, seal cracks, and address minor dental cosmetic issues, nothing looks as natural as porcelain dental veneers.  Dental resin tends to absorb the light rather than reflect it the way natural teeth do, so it can detract from the smile’s radiance.  But porcelain dental veneers are specially designed to mimic the appearance of natural teeth for a beautiful and natural appearance. 

  • Full smile transformation

Veneers are the only minimally invasive dental treatment that can correct multiple cosmetic dental issues at the same time. You can come in to your appointment with minor tooth misalignment, cracked enamel, stained teeth, disproportionately sized teeth, and spacing issues—and then walk out with a bright, symmetrical, proportionate, and radiant smile. 

Dental veneers | Because you deserve to love your smile

Sharing your smile with the world is one of life’s greatest pleasures. If you have cracked, discolored, or oddly shaped teeth, you may be hiding or withholding your smile in ways you’re not even aware of. When you correct the cosmetic dental issues that hold you back, you give yourself the freedom to shine. Dental veneers can help brighten your smile, boost your self-confidence, and slay those summer selfies.
