What are the Hygiene and Oral Health Benefits of Veneers?

Dr. Chen is cosmetic dentist. But he’s also a general dentist. His passion is healthier smiles, as healthy smiles lead to healthier lives. Even within cosmetic dentistry, his focus is to find procedures that make the most sense for someone’s overall oral health, not just the look of their smile.

That’s where veneers can really shine. Some of the benefits of porcelain veneers include:

  • Stronger Teeth – Some patients that request veneers do so because their teeth have become cracked, brittle, or misshapen. The porcelain used in veneers is stronger and longer lasting, which helps these teeth stay stronger when chewing.
  • Easier to Brush – Brushing your teeth – at least the front of your teeth – is easier with veneers. The surfaces tend to be smoother and allow for easier strokes.
  • Alignment Changes – Similarly, porcelain veneers can be used to make small changes to the alignment of your teeth and bite. Proper bite is an important part of overall oral health and hygiene.

These are only some of the oral health benefits of porcelain veneers. There are also the many aesthetic benefits, such as a healthier looking smile, whiter teeth, and improved confidence. Yet even though veneers are cosmetic procedure, the advantages go beyond just the way they look.

Porcelain veneers are a great way to makeover a smile and fall back in love with your teeth again. If you’d like to learn more, contact us today for a consultation to see if veneers are the right choice for your needs.
