5 Reasons to Consider Dental Veneers

Are you thinking about getting dental restorations to enhance both the look and functionality of your current teeth? Dental veneers may be the right choice for you. Our Toronto dentists list five reasons you may want to consider this option.

What are veneers?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom-made to match the shape of your tooth. They are applied to the front surface of your teeth to transform and enhance the appearance of your smile.

Your dentist will begin by taking an impression of your teeth, which will be used to create your custom veneers. The veneers will then be bonded to your natural teeth. Dental veneers imitate your tooth enamel’s natural translucency, so they look and feel like natural teeth.

Why should I consider getting dental veneers?

1. Dental veneers can help to restore your smile – and protect your teeth.

Dental veneers are a great way to improve the look and functionality of your smile. They not only safeguard the surface of your teeth from stains and damage but also conceal stubborn discoloration that cannot be eliminated through teeth whitening methods.

2. Veneers can help resolve a number of dental issues.

Dental veneers have the ability to enhance your smile by improving the color and shape of your natural teeth. They are a versatile solution for addressing various dental concerns such as spacing, size, alignment, erosion, and chipping, helping to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

3. If cared for properly, dental veneers can last many years.

Porcelain veneers generally last longer than composite resin. On average, they last about 15 years. However, depending on a few key factors such as how well they are cared for, they can last 20 years or more.

To ensure your veneers last as long as possible, you’ll need to maintain a rigorous oral hygiene routine at home, brushing at least twice a day for two minutes each time and flossing once daily.

4. Dental veneers are less intrusive than other restoration options.

Dental veneers are a less invasive alternative to dental crowns. They also don’t require as much reshaping of your teeth.

5. You can have veneers on several teeth.

You can choose to have veneers on only one tooth, or many at a time. If you have a tooth that has become discoloured or misshapen due to injury, you may only require one veneer. Some patients who want to change the way all of their teeth look may choose to have more done.

Bonus: Veneers are a cost-effective option.

Dental veneers are a common dental restoration partly because of their cost-effectiveness. Depending on your dental issue and which type of veneers you choose, the cost of veneers may make more economical sense for you long-term than other dental restoration options.

Although dental veneers are an excellent choice for those seeking smile enhancement, they may not be suitable for everyone. To determine if dental veneers are a suitable option for your specific needs, it is essential to schedule a consultation with your dentist.
