Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Glendale Dentist Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, and nearby areas in Arizona

Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry restorations available. These thin porcelain shells get bonded to the front surface of your teeth in order to correct a wide range of dental flaws. Due to their many benefits, Dr. Wilcox regularly recommends porcelain veneers as part of a smile makeover. You can use porcelain veneers to correct the appearance of just about any dental imperfection in order to achieve a beautiful smile. Common dental issues treated with porcelain veneers include:

  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Uneven or irregularly shaped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Teeth that are worn down
  • Crooked teeth

Porcelain veneers offer you a variety of benefits, including:

  • Deliver beautiful, natural looking results
  • Stain resistant
  • Color of your porcelain veneers can be matched to the shade of adjacent natural teeth
  • Dental porcelain mimics the translucent properties of tooth enamel, making them look more natural than many other cosmetic restorations
  • Gum tissue tolerates dental porcelain very well

If you would like to straighten your teeth but do not want to commit the time required for orthodontic treatment, you may want to consider porcelain veneers. They are often called “instant orthodontics” due to their ability to deliver the appearance of a beautiful, straight smile in just a few short office visits. Keep in mind that porcelain veneers don’t actually straighten your teeth; they just provide the appearance of straight teeth. If you want the functional benefits of straight teeth, you will need to undergo orthodontic treatment.
