If you’re considering cosmetic dentistry to get a smile makeover, there are many potential procedures that might be able to get you the results you’re looking for.

But with all the potential options, porcelain veneers are the most popular cosmetic dental procedure when you are looking to improve your smile. Here’s why it shines–often quite literally–above the rest.

Smile Again Quickly

Some cosmetic dentistry procedures can take months or even years to complete. But not porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can give you results faster than you probably ever thought possible.

For most people, porcelain veneers just require two visits to complete. Within a month–or less–you’ll have your brand new smile. Yeah, it’s that fast!

You’re Not Stuck with Your Teeth

You’re probably unhappy with the appearance of your teeth. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be considering a smile makeover, right? You might think that you’re stuck with your teeth and can just move them around a little bit or whiten them, but it’s not true.

Porcelain veneers don’t exactly replace your natural teeth, but they can give your natural teeth an entirely new visible surface for your teeth. You can reshape them, lengthen them, and, of course, restore any damage.

It’s an unfortunate truth about orthodontics that people sometimes take the time to move their teeth, only to realize it wasn’t the crookedness they didn’t like, it was the teeth themselves.

Nobody Needs to Know

There’s nothing wrong with getting cosmetic dentistry, but you don’t always want everyone to know.

With porcelain veneers, there is no treatment period where you’ll be exposed for getting cosmetic dentistry.

You’ll come into our office for one visit, and you’ll leave wearing attractive, natural-looking temporary veneers. Then you’ll come in for your second visit and get the final veneers, which are very natural in appearance and are practically indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

The only caveat here is that if you get really dramatic changes to your smile, people are going to notice. But, then again, if you’re getting that kind of change in your smile, you’re probably hoping people will notice.

Long-Lasting Results

Many people complain about the short-term results from teeth whitening. It can be a nuisance to be constantly maintaining your whitening results with regular whitening visits to keep your teeth from getting discolored.

And speaking of discolored, that can often happen with restorations made out of dental bonding, which may start white but can get discolored from food and drink–and won’t respond to teeth whitening. Dental bonding can also wear or break relatively quickly, so you won’t enjoy the same longevity of results.

But with porcelain veneers, you can enjoy long-lasting results. Typically, veneers last a decade or more, resisting stains and chips and continuing to look as beautiful as ever.

See the Benefits for Yourself

Don’t like the appearance of your smile? You’re not alone. There’s a crowd of people that feel that way. But you can stand out from that crowd with porcelain veneers.

You’ll love your new smile and you’ll love your porcelain veneers–they’re the best!
