Porcelain veneers cover and restore front teeth with minor imperfections. But did you know there are other benefits of porcelain veneers? For example, veneers can help you feel more confident about your smile.

In This Blog Post, We'll Explain:

· How porcelain veneers work

· Benefits of porcelain veneers

· How to set up an appointment with our cosmetic dentist

Let's get started.


Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that look like natural tooth enamel. Our dentist can bond veneers to the front teeth to improve the appearance of your smile.

Our dentist may recommend veneers if you have front teeth with minor chips, cracks, or gaps. Porcelain veneers can also cover teeth with noticeable stains and discoloration.


Porcelain veneers can dramatically improve your quality of life. Below, we outline our top 5 benefits of porcelain veneers.

1.) Save As Much Natural Tooth Structure As Possible

Compared to other treatments (like crowns), veneers are minimally invasive. The veneers procedure also only takes two visits to our office.

During your first appointment with us, we'll need to remove a thin layer of enamel from the fronts of your teeth. This is to make room for your dental veneers so your teeth don't look large or bulky. We'll then take dental impressions to send to the lab where they'll make your veneers.

Your dental veneers will be ready when you return for your second appointment. But first, our dentist will check that the veneers are the right color and shape before bonding them to your teeth. In most cases, placing veneers over your teeth requires little to no anesthesia.

2.) Close Small Gaps Between Teeth

Do you have small gaps between your front teeth? If so, it may be time to consider dental veneers.

Plaque can hide in the small gaps between teeth where toothbrush bristles can't reach. Closing a small gap will change more than your appearance. It'll also improve your oral health by giving dental plaque fewer places to hide.

3.) Restore The Function And Appearance Of Teeth

Veneers restore teeth with small chips and cracks. They also improve the appearance of discolored, stained, or misshapen teeth. Restoring your front teeth will prevent further damage to the teeth.

4.) Improve Self-Esteem

Have you ever covered your smile because you felt self-conscious? One of the main benefits of veneers is that it helps improve your self-esteem. Once we restore your smile, you'll be able to enjoy the joyful moments in your life to the fullest. A smile is one of the best gifts you can share with the world.

5.) Continue Eating Your Favorite Foods

With your new veneers, you can go back to eating and drinking as you would with your normal teeth. Veneers are non-porous, which means they will resist staining. But keep in mind that you will still need to maintain good oral hygiene.

Continue brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once daily. Traditional porcelain veneers can last up to 10 to 15 years when you take good care of your oral health.
