From implants to braces, the investment in time and money required to ‘fix’ your teeth can be prohibitive, dashing your dream of a perfect, white smile. But, despite how expensive dental work can be, there are more affordable options out there that will allow you to create your ideal smile!

Teeth veneers offer a great, low-investment option for folks looking to “rework” their smile into something they can show off with confidence.

To help you better understand how veneers may be able to help you, we’ll cover their five, main benefits below!

A Whiter smile

Whether your teeth are stained, or you were born with a less-than-white smile, teeth whitening isn’t always a possibility – especially for those with sensitive teeth. For those looking for a brighter shade of white, but can’t achieve it through traditional teeth whitening, veneers can help! Veneers fit seamlessly over your existing teeth and are more likely to stay brighter, longer. This is because, unlike your natural teeth, veneers are non-porous, which helps them fend off stains.

Straighter teeth

There are many ways to straighten out your smile, including braces. However, these solutions often require a time investment many don’t want to commit to. So, under certain circumstances, your dentist can use teeth veneers to help make your teeth appear straighter, creating that perfect smile you’ve been looking for!

Less-invasive cosmetic surgery

Many dental procedures require dentists to drastically change a tooth, in some cases, removing large amounts of enamel (your tooth’s protective barrier). For all their benefits, teeth veneers require only two dental visits and minimal enamel removal. It’s one of the simplest, least-invasive procedures that can brighten your smile.

Don’t require special upkeep

One of the best parts of dental veneers is once they are installed you can totally forget they’re there! Not only do they not require any special cleaning tools or upkeep, but they are also completely indistinguishable from your natural teeth! That means the only person who knows they’re there is you! And, of course, your dentist. πŸ˜‰

Permanent and durable

Dental veneers are designed to last for 10 to 15 years without any maintenance beyond brushing and flossing. And, because they’re made of non-porous porcelain, they can withstand the rigours of daily use even better than your natural teeth, keeping your smile straight and white for years, and even decades, to come!
