Although you have more options than ever before to revamp your pearly whites, veneers rank among the most popular aesthetic procedures year after year. If you’re searching for the perfect option to improve your teeth, here are a few great reasons you should consider investing in veneers.

Fix Many Issues at Once

If you have multiple issues you’d like to address, veneers can help. Bonding the thin shells to the front sides of your teeth covers various concerns using one procedure. Applying them to the teeth visible when smiling can correct stains, chips, and gaps. They’ll improve the overall color, shape, and size of your teeth. You won’t require several procedures to reach your goals quickly. 

Minimally Invasive Procedure

Veneers are thinner than ever before, so less enamel is removed during the application process. Your dentist must etch the surfaces of your teeth to ensure your restorations have a good bonding surface. They’ll be conservative when prepping your teeth, so it won’t harm them. However, your enamel won’t grow back if your veneers are removed. They must always be covered by restorations. Your dentist may use a local numbing agent to block any pain while preparing your teeth, but it isn’t always necessary. At most, you may feel some pressure or unusual sensations, but you won’t have any outright pain. 

Natural-Looking Results

Veneers are made of porcelain because it resembles enamel. Therefore, your veneers will look and feel natural. The etching process and their thin design make them lightweight, so your teeth won’t feel heavy or bulky. Only a trained dental professional will know they aren’t part of your real teeth.

Cost-Effective Option

Veneers may cost more than other elective services, but they can be the most affordable overall. A veneer can last for a decade or longer with the correct care, like brushing and flossing. With good oral hygiene habits and regular preventive dental appointments, you won’t have to budget for replacements often. You’ll also save money because you won’t need several procedures.

Veneers can give you the smile of your dreams in as few as 2 appointments. Although veneers are beneficial, they aren’t right for everyone. Your dentist will examine your mouth and learn more about your concerns to determine if you’re a candidate for veneers. They’ll create the personalized plan you need to love the smile that you see in the mirror.
