Veneers are a great way to rejuvenate your teeth and fix various cosmetic issues. However, not all veneers are created equal. Ceramics, composite, and porcelain are all common materials used in making veneers. Porcelain veneers are generally considered the best choice, but why is that exactly? So let’s dive right into the advantages of porcelain veneers so you can decide if they’re right for you.
Advantages Of Porcelain Veneers
The translucency isn’t often first considered when thinking about veneers. However, it’s the translucency that allows porcelain veneers to mimic real teeth so accurately. Real teeth do not fully block out light. Small portions of light still pass through real teeth and make them slightly translucent. Some other veneer types are not translucent and give off a subtle fake or ‘plastic’ appearance.
Porcelain veneers are stain resistant because of their material. Unlike other materials, porcelain doesn’t stain as easily because it’s less porous. This means there are fewer microscopic openings in the material itself that things like coffee and soda can be trapped in.
All veneers require some form of installation process. Porcelain veneers are less invasive than some other procedures because less enamel needs to be removed to attach them. This makes the entire process much easier.
As mentioned before, porcelain veneers are translucent, which helps them match real teeth. Porcelain veneers are also much closer to the color of natural teeth and are virtually impossible to differentiate from normal teeth at a glance. No one wants their cosmetic dental work to stick out like a sore thumb. Porcelain veneers help the focus stay on your smile, not your teeth.
