Your teeth are sort of the doorway to your personality. No matter how pretty or handsome you are, if you have discoloured teeth or severe unsightly stains on your teeth, people will be repelled by you –even if you have excellent oral health. And if you’re an average looking individual with nice teeth, people will be attracted to you.

It’s not fair, but that’s the world we live in. People judge and are judged by what they see. One of the first few things people notice about you is your teeth and smile. There’s a reason everyone like people with great teeth and smiles: it’s because people with great teeth and smiles are perceived as being in good health. While those who don’t are thought of as diseased, even if they aren’t.

This is where porcelain veneers come in. Nowadays, people drink a lot of coffee, tea, red wine and other drinks that can easily discolour the teeth. To prevent or minimise these stains, you can get porcelain veneers fitted over your teeth. They are also effective at improving your teeth’s appearance. So, if you have yellowed or stained teeth, porcelain veneers can really help you.

Why are They Great Dental Alternatives?

Effective for Sensitive or Extremely Stained Teeth

The first thing most people consider when they have stained teeth is teeth whitening procedures like bleaching. But the thing is not everyone’s teeth can handle the powerful action of most teeth whitening agents.

And then, there’s the issue of tooth fillings or stains that even the best teeth whitening procedures can’t remove. So, instead of going about with stained teeth, you can easily have porcelain veneers placed over your teeth to improve its looks and give you those highly coveted pearly whites.

Hides Cracks

If you have chips and cracks in your teeth and want to hide them, making your teeth look completely perfect, the veneers can do that for you. They are excellent at hiding any tooth imperfections.

Can Minimise Diastemas

Many people have gaping spaces in their teeth called Diastemas. These can be unsightly depending on the individual or severity. If you’re looking to improve your teeth’s appearance and reduce gaps, your dentist can build customised veneers that’ll fit in your teeth and improve your teeth’s appearance.

Can Work for Crooked Teeth

For many people, the solution to crooked teeth is the wearing of braces for years. Let’s be honest, braces aren’t exactly pretty to look at. They always seem wet and look like they have food particles stuck to them.

Overall, they can be unsightly even with the best oral care –not to mention the fact that it makes the wearers self-conscious. Luckily porcelain veneers can work in such situations. And it doesn’t have to take years. A simple trip to the dentist should have you provide you with properly aligned courtesy of the porcelain veneer within the day.

They Are Affordable and Last Long

Porcelain veneers aren’t expensive, are harmless –much like your artificial nails- and with proper care, can last almost two decades. And the procedure doesn’t hurt either. Please note that depending on the severity of your case, it can sometimes take 2-5 visits to get you the perfect smile and teeth you want.
