What Can Porcelain Veneers Treat?

Porcelain veneers are a minimally invasive and effective way to conceal minor cosmetic imperfections such as:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Gaps
  • Discoloration
  • Crowding

If your teeth are significantly crooked, you may benefit more from an orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign. However, if you only have minor gaps or crowding, porcelain veneers may be good for you.

The same goes for chips and cracks. If your concerns are merely aesthetic, porcelain veneers are a great fix. However, if your chip or crack is causing functional issues, then you may need a different type of treatment that restores function as well as beauty.

Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?

There are a number of benefits to having a porcelain veneers treatment, including:

  • Natural appearance: Dental porcelain is translucent just like real enamel and can be color-matched to your surrounding teeth.
  • Durable: With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for a decade or longer.
  • Stain-resistant: Porcelain veneers do not discolor easily, so your smile will stay white for a long time.
  • Easy to care for: Porcelain veneers mimic real teeth, and do not require special care aside from your normal oral hygiene habits.

It is very important to follow a good oral hygiene routine after having porcelain veneers placed, because just like real teeth, they can become damaged with poor care. Some good habits to follow to keep your veneers in tip top shape include:

  • Brush twice a day for two minutes
  • Floss daily
  • Don’t chew on hard surfaces (such as pens or pencils)
  • Don’t chew ice, and limit your consumption of hard or sticky foods and candies
  • Visit Boles, Ham, Dixon & Boles every six months for a dental checkup

If you maintain good oral hygiene habits, your veneers should last for years with no problems, making them a great investment in your smile.

The Importance of a Great Smile

Various studies have shown that people with healthy teeth and attractive smiles make better first impressions than those with dental problems. If you’re going on a job interview or a first date, your teeth may play a more important role than you think. Bad oral hygiene can lead to a number of bad impressions, and it can be hard to overcome a bad first impression, especially if you don’t have a lot of time for it.

An easy way to instantly boost your first impressions is to have healthy, nice teeth. Porcelain veneers are an easy and effective way to achieve this, and are extremely popular as a result.
