The benefits of porcelain veneers

Veneers are wafer-thin shells made of different materials (ceramic, porcelain or composite bonding material) that are worn over the surface of the teeth. The shell works like false fingernails and is cemented to the front surface of the teeth to make it look as natural as possible.

While this procedure is more properly categorized as cosmetic dentistry, it can also provide the patient with many health benefits such as correcting uneven spacing, alignment or the worn enamel of the tooth. The natural wear and tear of teeth can be disguised with dental veneers, as these will restore the perfect color and shape of your teeth.

Wearing dental veneers can also be used as a preventive measure against further tooth damage, keeping you clear of more extensive dental treatments. Tooth discoloration is also greatly reduced because the material takes on the color and appearance of natural teeth, giving you an instantly brighter, more confident smile.

Teeth that are only slightly crooked will also benefit a lot from the use of dental veneers. While it will not completely alter your imperfect structure, it can still give you a more aligned-looking smile for a fraction of other orthodontic treatments such as braces.

At Dental Care of Nixa, we understand your need for durable and long-lasting dental care, so we recommend using porcelain materials for your veneer. It is the preferred material for a natural, barely-there look. At the same time, porcelain veneers can provide you with better protection against staining and chipping. They may cost a bit more than their composite counterparts, but the investment is well worth it.
