If you have chipped or stained teeth, getting dental veneers is a good option to explore. Porcelain veneers are very much in vogue today and with great reason too. If you are not sure which kind of veneers to go in for here are some points in favor of porcelain that you should take into consideration.
Porcelain veneers look natural
What’s the first thing you focus on when you are looking for dental veneers? It should not be evident to others that your smile is not quite ‘natural’, right? Porcelain veneers score highly in this respect since the material very closely resembles natural teeth enamel. In fact, this material reflects light in pretty much the same way that natural tooth enamel does. If you have an expert dentist working on the veneers there is no way for anyone to tell the porcelain apart from a real ‘perfect white’ smile!
Stain free veneers
If you are in the process of choosing veneers for your teeth, chances are you want to improve the appearance of your smile (or your teeth). You certainly do not want a veneer material that is likely to stain easily. Many dentists recommend porcelain over other materials because it is highly resistant to stain, more so than many other options you have, such as resin veneers.
Easy to maintain
Porcelain veneers are also very popular because they are so simple to maintain. Typically, you can keep your porcelain veneers intact for a long, long time by just treating them with the same care and attention that you would give your natural, original teeth. Keep up your regular brushing- flossing routine and you should be able to keep the veneers in great condition. Just check with your dentist if the toothpaste you currently use is suitable. He may recommend a non- abrasive fluoride alternative to keep your veneers in perfect shape!
