Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Have you ever felt self-conscious and hid your smile in a group photo? If so, you don’t have to live your life trying to hide your smile. Porcelain veneers were designed to help people just like you by covering up cracks, chips, gaps between teeth, and even tooth discoloration. A dental veneer is essentially a protective tooth-colored shell adhered to the surface of your tooth by a Naples cosmetic dentist so you can smile with confidence.

In this blog post, we will go over the benefits of porcelain veneers so you can feel informed and confident when seeking treatment.

Candidates for porcelain veneers usually experience the following dental issues:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth

Little to No Anesthesia

If you are uncomfortable with the idea of being put under anesthesia for a cosmetic dental procedure, you may want to consider porcelain veneers. Patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. However, an experienced cosmetic dentist is able to give local anesthesia if you experience dental discomfort.


Did you know that porcelain veneers are able to resist staining and decay better than natural teeth? This is because dental veneers are made out of a durable material that lasts you about 10 to 15 years. While cosmetic dental veneersare long-lasting, they also look and feel natural.

Minimal Maintenance

Veneers require the same care as your natural teeth, which means you should continue brushing twice a day and flossing daily. In other words, caring for porcelain veneers is simple. Since dental veneers are nonporous, they are more resistant than natural tooth enamel against cavities or permanent stains. This makes it easier for you to maintain the natural whiteness of your dental veneers.

Natural Looking

Dental veneers are made to fit along the contours of your teeth and match your natural tooth enamel. During the first appointment, your dentist will file down the fronts of your teeth to make room for the dental veneers. Otherwise, the veneers will make your teeth seem large and bulky. Then, your dentist will take dental impressions and send them to the lab where your veneers will be made.

When you arrive for your second appointment, your dentist will ensure that the color and fit of your new dental veneer is optimal for your smile. All of this is to make sure your new dental veneers look and feel natural.

Long Lasting

When taken care of properly, dental veneers can easily last patients between 10 and 15 years. Dental bonding, a procedure that offers many of the same benefits, only lasts from anywhere between 3 and 10 years. Many cosmetic dentistry patients appreciate that dental veneers are able to last for years to come.
