Veneers: 3 Reasons To Feel Confident

steps123Choosing porcelain veneers to transform the beauty of your smile is a wonderful choice, which you will quickly discover as you learn about the benefits. While the ability to completely customize your grin is truly exciting, you may find that you still have a bit of difficulty moving forward with the decision to choose veneers. Why does this happen to so many patients? In most cases, the initially amazing advantages suddenly make one think there must be some hidden drawback. Allow us to reassure you with some compelling reasons to feel confident – rather than worried – about achieving the smile you want with veneers.

Reason #1: They Last (And Last)

Porcelain veneers last a long time. Was that your major concern? Understandably, patients are commonly worried that the veneer will easily shatter. Fortunately, they are constructed out of multiple layers of porcelain, which results in exceptional durability. They may last as long as 20 years.

Reason #2: They Require Simple Care

Now that you know you can live your life like you usually do without worrying about veneer breakage, you may still be worried about maintenance. The good news is that porcelain veneers require simple care. All you need to do is brush twice daily like you do for your natural smile and floss once a day. Avoid abrasive products like gritty toothpastes and you’re in good shape.

Reason #3: Veneers Resist Staining

Since we customize the shade of your porcelain veneers to create a brighter smile, you probably want to keep your grin that way. You have nothing to worry about – porcelain resists staining. Limit staining foods (or remember to rinse and then brush after meals) to keep your smile extra white.
