Do you want to find out what veneers can do for your overall smile? Many of the modern dental technologies today focus on improving the way you look when you smile. A dentist is no longer only available to fix dental problems. Instead, a dentist is now able to offer their patients a number of cosmetic dentistry options that can give them the smile they desire.

Porcelain veneers are a possible option to enhance one's smile and can last up to 20 years with the proper care. If you are someone who wants to make a few changes to your smile, porcelain veneers are a great option.

What exactly are veneers?

Veneers are very thin porcelain shells that can be used to cover up any tooth imperfections someone may have, which includes chipped teeth, broken teeth, cracked teeth and discolored teeth. They can also help to even out teeth that are uneven or irregular, a popular option for a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Patients who happen to have one or more gaps between their teeth can also benefit from veneers as they can close said gaps.

While veneers can cover up a variety of tooth damages, they are usually cover up a patient's stained or discolored teeth. Veneers are a permanent cosmetic option that people need to consider with a dental professional before making a final decision. Even though they are artificial, veneers require proper care similar to regular teeth. Veneers can repair or improve the look of one tooth. Veneers can also improve the look of several teeth, making them quite the flexible option.

Do veneers strengthen teeth?

Yes, veneers can make teeth stronger. Veneers consist of porcelain, a strong material that can help strengthen weak teeth. When the enamel of a tooth sustains damage, it reduces the overall strength of a tooth and makes it much more susceptible to breakage.

Once the enamel is gone, the tooth is not able to replace it. Veneers are able to take the place of this enamel and accordingly can make the tooth once again strong.
