The principle idea behind veneers is to improve the appearance of your teeth. Porcelain veneers have become one of the most popular options as they are extremely tough and durable; you may need to consider if these are the right option for you if you have any of the following issues:

  • Discoloration

Teeth are subject to all sorts of food, drinks, fluoride, dental treatments and other environmental toxins throughout the day. It is hardly surprising that, over time, these products stain your teeth; leaving them discolored.

If your teeth fall into this category then you may wish to consider having porcelain veneers fitted to improve the look of your teeth and restore your smile.

  • Damaged

There are many ways in which your teeth can be damaged, through force in a fight, or while playing sport. They can also develop cracks and holes through decay.

Again, porcelain veneers can help return the look of your teeth to what they should be.

  • Misaligned

There are many reasons why you teeth can become misaligned. It may be that they have grown that way when you were a child; and never been corrected.  Alternatively you may have lost a tooth and the surrounding teeth have moved to fill the gap.

Veneers can correct this issue by surrounding all your teeth and making them look perfect; just like your favorite celebrity.

  • Gaps

Just as a gap can help your teeth become misaligned it can also cause issues when eating and with your confidence when you need to smile. This will no longer be an issue if you have porcelain veneers fitted.

Why Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are not the only option. If you have any of the above issues you may be interested to know that there are various options regarding which type of veneer you choose. Of course, your budget will affect your final decision.

There are, however, several reasons why you should opt for porcelain veneers:

  • Strength

The first and most important point is that porcelain is very strong. Although it has been used for years to make veneers; the very latest technology allows the current range of porcelain veneers to be twice as strong as previous versions!

A quality porcelain veneer will act in the same way as your natural teeth; allowing you to enjoy your favorite food at any time of the day.

  • Non-Abrasive

Porcelain veneers are designed to be non-abrasive. This prevents the veneer from grinding down the teeth surrounding it. This was a common problem in the past and led to a lot more dental work!

  • Fit

Modern veneers are tailored to fit your teeth before the final pressing takes place. Not only does this mean that they are unique; but they are also an exceptionally good fit.

The better the fit of your porcelain veneers the easier they will be to fit and the less cement which will be required; all good things!


If the appearance of your teeth needs improving then porcelain veneers are probably the best solution for your needs. See your local dentist now; they can help you visualize and achieve the right result.
