5 Benefits of Veneers

If you’re troubled by your dental imperfections, veneers could be the answer to your problems. These ultra-thin porcelain or composite covers get bonded to the visible portion of your tooth, offering immediate results that completely transform your smile.

Our team at South Bay Prosthodontics in Torrance, California, wants you to have a smile you’re eager to share with the entire world. Here are five benefits to veneers that go beyond giving you a smile you love.

1. Versatile

One of the reasons veneers are such a popular cosmetic and restorative treatment lies with their versatility. They can correct a wide range of issues, such as:

Plus, you can use a veneer to address a single tooth or for a full smile makeover.

2. Quick and minimally invasive

No one wants to wait to get results, especially when it involves your smile. Fortunately, you can transform your teeth in two simple appointments when you choose veneers.

During your first visit, we discuss your dental concerns, perform an exam, and select the best size and color veneer to help you reach your goals. Then, we remove a tiny amount of enamel from the front of your tooth to ensure a natural fit and feel without adding any bulk. 

Next, we can take impressions of your mouth and fabricate your custom-made veneer.

At your second appointment, we check the look and fit of your new veneer before bonding it securely in place with dental cement. 

3. Stain-resistant and long-lasting

Even with the best dental hygiene, teeth pick up stains because of daily activities — like drinking coffee or wine — and aging. However, when you choose veneers made from porcelain material, you get the most natural-looking results and stain resistance at the same time.

Plus, porcelain veneers don’t just look great, they can last up to 15 years.

4. Natural-looking results

Veneers mimic a tooth's natural covering, known as enamel. They come in numerous shades, which ensures a perfect match to surrounding teeth or enables you to brighten and lighten your entire smile.

We can also use veneers to change your tooth's shape, but they don’t require as much shaping as other restoration treatments, like crowns.

5. Easy care solutions

Getting your new veneers may seem quick and simple, but nothing is easier than caring for them. Just stick to your good oral hygiene habits by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and scheduling regular cleanings. 

We also recommend avoiding certain habits that can put veneers at risk, such as:

You should consider veneers a permanent dental treatment because they require enamel removal. With the right care, your veneer should last 7-15 years.
