If your dentist has told you that you have to have your teeth removed due to a dental problem, such as periodontal disease, you have different options to replace them. One of these options is porcelain veneers. No one will be able to tell you are wearing porcelain veneers because they look like your natural teeth. To help you decide if you would like this below are three benefits of choosing veneers over other replacement options.
1. Keep Them White
Even if you have real teeth whitened, over time, they will become stained again. Porcelain veneers, however, are completely white and they will stay that way. This is because the porcelain the lab uses to create your veneers is high quality. For example, you can drink coffee or tea and not have to worry about stains. If you smoke, you will not have to worry about leaving yellow stains on your teeth. You will also not have to worry about having your veneers whitened one you have them placed in your mouth, which will save you money and time.
2. Fix Dental Problems
If your natural teeth are crooked, misshapen, have gaps, or other unsightly problems, you would have to have a lot of dental work to repair all of this, such as braces, crowns, etc. Instead, dental veneers will fix all of this. This is because the veneers will be completely straight and there will be no gaps in your teeth when the dentist is finished putting them in your mouth. This can also save you a lot of money as you will not have to worry about paying a cosmetic dentist to straighten your teeth or repair gaps.
3. Will Not Bother Other Teeth
If you do not have to have all your teeth removed, porcelain veneers will not bother your other natural teeth. This is because the dentist will not have to chip or file away any part of the natural teeth. There may be times, however, when the dentist may have to alter your natural teeth but if so this is only a small amount. In most cases, the dentist will not have to alter anything because the lab will customize your porcelain veneers, so they fit perfectly in your gum.
