Veneers are currently a frontrunner for dental cosmetic procedures due to their natural look and quick process. People opt for Porcelain veneers over Composite because it looks the most realistic in colour and general appearance. Here are the three main reasons why Porcelain is the way to go.
Porcelain Veneers Look And Feel Natural
Porcelain Veneers have two qualities that allow them to have a natural look: Colour versatility and a realistic tooth-like feel thanks to its glass texture. It comes in many shades of white and is adjusted to match your tooth enamel. Porcelain brightness can also go up to BL1, which is not possible with Composite Veneers.
Porcelain Veneers Can Fix Small Cosmetic Issues
Misshapen Teeth– Some people struggle with teeth that are small or oddly shaped compared to the rest. There are many reasons for misaligned teeth, such as retained baby teeth or small roots. Dentists can quickly fix most of these issues with Porcelain because it is a thin material. It is much easier to shape than Composite Veneers.
Worn Teeth or Tooth Trauma- Our teeth go through stress daily and quickly get worn or even fractured. Porcelain Veneers are built on your teeth to cover any chip, cracks and gum recession naturally.
Stained or Eroded Teeth– Teeth do start wearing down due to acids in the mouth from food or even acid reflux. Some liquids easily stain teeth, such as coffee, tea and wine. Porcelain can cover up these flaws with a natural colour that match your teeth. They are also stain-resistant, thanks to their glass-like texture.
Smile Gaps– Recently, the most highly recommended procedure for closing gaps between teeth is Porcelain Veneers. People have been opting for Veneers over an orthodontics procedure because it is a much shorter procedure.
Getting Porcelain Veneers Is A Minimally Invasive Procedure With Long-Lasting Results
Many tooth restoration options require the dentist to remove a lot of tooth enamel to make space for, for example, a dental crown. Porcelain is a thin material that requires minimal tooth shaping and enamel removal, making it a non-invasive procedure. Some patients don’t require anaesthesia during the process.
