One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures available today is porcelain veneers. Veneers are so popular because they can fix a wide variety of aesthetic issues in a relatively short amount of time, and look beautiful but still natural. Many A-list celebrities have turned to veneers for that perfect “Hollywood” smile, but they are accessible to anyone invested in the appearance of their smile.

If you are wondering if porcelain veneers are a good choice for you, don’t hesitate to contact Boles, Ham, Dixon, & Boles today at 252-291-2892 to schedule your consultation.

1. Porcelain Veneers Are Stain-Resistant and Long-Lasting

Most people will end up with teeth that are mildly to severely discolored at some point in their life. It’s practically inevitable, especially if you regularly drink coffee, wine, or tea. While there are ways to minimize discoloration from certain foods and beverages, most adults don’t realize this until it’s too late.

One big benefit of porcelain veneers is that they are made of a stain-resistant material. While it is possible for them to stain under certain circumstances, for the most part, they will stay pearly white. In addition, they are very durable and long-lasting. With proper care, veneers can last for decades.

2. Porcelain Veneers Can Correct Many Dental Issues

Porcelain veneers are often a great choice for patients who have multiple aesthetic concerns with their teeth, such as:

  • Severe discoloration
  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Crookedness
  • Gaps

Veneers are sometimes called “instant orthodontics” because they can be used to disguise mild tooth misalignment and give the appearance of straight teeth. If your teeth are crooked or gapped but are not causing problems with your bite, porcelain veneers may be used in place of an orthodontic treatment that could take months or years to see results from.

If your tooth misalignment is more severe or is causing issues with your bite, though, you may be better served with an orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign. Ask our Raleigh cosmetic dentists what treatment would be best for you.

3. Porcelain Veneers Are Comfortable and Natural-Looking

Porcelain veneers are custom-matched to your real teeth in order to look as natural as possible. Since they are made out of a translucent dental porcelain that mimics natural enamel, no one will even notice that you have veneers unless you tell them.

You can pick the shade that you want, and we can match your existing teeth to your preferred shade through teeth whitening. You can also choose the shape of the veneers, and we will work with you to make sure the final veneers are exactly what you want. Before permanently placing your final veneers, you can look at them in your mouth and feel how comfortable they are. If there is anything at all that you are concerned about, we can address it before permanent placement.
