A lot of people may find it awkward to smile genuinely or naturally just because of habit of how they think they will look when they smile. Even if you don’t like to be in front of cameras and try to avoid them, there are many occasions that you may be asked to smile such as weddings, birthdays, and other social gatherings and how about at work??? It can be embarrassing not to be able to smile confidently and it can greatly impact the results of first dates, job interviews or really any facet of your life.
Dental veneers are designed to improve the appearance of persons with broken, stained, chipped, misaligned teeth, and tooth gaps. Veneers are made of materials that highly resemble the tooth color.
The two main types of veneers are:
- Composite Veneers.
This type of veneers is usually made up of resin cements, and is manufactured by a dentist in the dental lab. Composite veneers are mostly used to treat adolescents.
- Porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are made by taking the impression of the patient’s teeth. The impression is then sent to a laboratory to be fabricated professionally. Two appointments are required to complete this procedure; first to take tooth impression and prepare it, second to put it on to the patient’s tooth.
Benefits of dental veneers.

Many people lack in confidence and shy away from groups when it is time for group photos. While many others develop this self-conscious habit of thinking that their teeth don’t look good when they smile. Your smile can change people’s perception of you and veneers can help you feel more comfortable to let the world see your beautiful smile.

Dental related problems are a lengthy procedure; it requires multiple appointments with the dentist. This is not the case with veneers; it requires no more than two appointments. In just two weeks, the whole process can be successfully completed.
- Less maintenance.
It is very easy to maintain veneers because they are composed of individual units. You can eat and drink just as you usually would. The same is the case when it comes to brushing and flossing.
- Natural looks.
Veneers are made of tooth color materials to give you a natural look. It fills up the tooth gaps; covers stained or discolored teeth, as well as broken teeth.
- Comfortable feel.
Veneers are very thin materials, and since they are worn individually, it gives a very comfortable feel.
- Long lasting.
With proper care and timely dental checkups veneers can last for a long time. It is resistant to stains, discoloration, and decay. Porcelain veneers are made to last for ten years or more. However, to ensure the durability of the veneers, chewing hard food and excessive coffee intake are discouraged.
What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Patients who opt for porcelain veneers will achieve results quickly, usually in as few as a couple of appointments to our dental office. Unlike your natural teeth, veneers are resistant to staining from foods and beverages. Veneers can cover unappealing areas in your mouth such as spaces and gaps between teeth, as well as teeth that are stained. There is just a small amount of tooth prep that is done before the veneers are permanently applied, so less of your natural tooth structure is compromised in order to place the veneers.
What many patients don’t realize is that porcelain veneers can address cosmetic alignment issues without the need for braces. Porcelain veneers fit over the front of your teeth and can make your smile look straight and aligned.
Some of the other cosmetic flaws porcelain veneers can correct include:
- Stained teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
