What are Veneers? Benefits and Effects


What are veneers? If your smile is detracting from your confidence and negatively affecting your day to day life, you may be wondering what you can do to improve it. After all, your smile is showcased when you converse, laugh, and talk. So, if you find yourself hiding your teeth when you laugh or not showing your teeth when you smile, taking steps to correct your smile may be a high priority for you. In this post, we are sharing one popular and effective way to rectify your smile – veneers. Veneers are made of porcelain which is customized to the length, size, and color of your preferred teeth and used as a cosmetic enhancement for a perfect smile. Below are common reasons why many people choose veneers.


Whitening Teeth


Teeth stains are a common problem for many people who frequently consume coffee, carbonated beverages, red wine, chocolate, and other dark-colored food and beverages. If this resonates with you, opting for veneers is a viable option because they resist stains and absolve the need for teeth whitening.


Fixing Gaps and Crooked Teeth


It can certainly be discouraging when a single tooth or even a couple teeth impact your entire smile. With today’s technology, you can easily have a smile that is free of gaps and highlights your straight teeth. If you have a cosmetic issue you’d like to fix, veneers are a wonderful long-term option. 




Another attractable feature of veneers is their durability. Not only do veneers last longer than composite fillings, but they are durable for up to 10-15 years depending on how well you take care of them. We should also point out that it is important to choose a trusted dentist to situate your veneers so their durability and lifespan is higher. Dr. Phillips and Dr. Schmitt both have a great portfolio of expert dental work, including veneers. 


Replacing Braces


If your dental assessment allows for the implementation of veneers over braces, we recommend you select veneers. That is because braces straighten your teeth over time while veneers instantly give the illusion of straight teeth. Not only will you have a better looking smile, but you will simultaneously improve your overall dental health and decrease the risk of tooth decay and gum infections. 


In sum, veneers can help you regain confidence and self-esteem by giving you a great smile. Not to mention, the veneer fixing process is easy and painless.
