Can Porcelain Veneers Give You a Straight Smile?

They are an easy way to fix misaligned teeth, with just a few visits to the dentist. In addition, veneers help to fix a larger array of dental problems, such as the color of teeth and gaps. They are a great alternative for people who do not want to get orthodontic appliances such as Invisalign or braces.

Can Veneers Give Me A Straight Smile?

Often referred to as instant orthodontics, veneers will give you a straight smile. This is because the dentist fits veneers over your actual teeth and this will give you the perfect smile. Since dental practitioners make veneers to fit your specific dental formula, this makes them a perfect fit for you.

However, because they placed veneers over the teeth, it is important to state that veneers do not actually fix any orthodontic issues. They merely help to hide orthodontic problems however; they do not change the position of teeth. This means that even though you will have a straight smile, the teeth underneath remain misaligned.

Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers

As stated before, veneers help to give you a straight smile by concealing misalignment of the teeth. Aside from giving you a straight smile, they also help to give you whiter and brighter teeth, and they protect your teeth from further discoloration. However, one of the most important benefits of veneers is that they resemble the actual teeth. Thus, it is hard for people to distinguish them from your actual teeth.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Veneers can last up to 10 years without replacing them. However, like most dental restoration methods, the longevity of veneers will depend on how you take care of them. Thus, you need to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth and flossing daily. You also need to keep up with your dental appointments and avoid biting down on any hard surfaces.

The Process of Getting Dental Veneers

While most orthodontic treatments can take up to three years to complete, veneers only take a few office visits. During the first visit, your dentist will assess if you are a suitable candidate for porcelain veneers. Next, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth. Dental practitioners will then use this impression to create your custom-made veneers. In your last appointment, the dentist will shape and bond your veneers to your teeth.
