Porcelain veneers are widely regarded as the best option for those looking to improve their smile, as they are more durable than composite veneers and can be used to treat minor issues such as chipped teeth. Unlike instant veneers, porcelain veneers are custom-made and can be used to whiten or change the color of teeth, as well as to correct deformities. The advantages of porcelain veneers include a quick two-visit process, easy color changes, and a natural look that does not stain. However, the procedure is not reversible and teeth may need to be reshaped in order to fit the veneers.
The cost of porcelain veneers is high, and the application process can be painful. So, is it worth investing in porcelain veneers? The answer is yes. Veneers are an excellent cosmetic solution for transforming damaged, discolored or crooked teeth. Porcelain is delicate and therefore more prone to chipping and cracking than crowns or fillings, so it is important to avoid habits such as biting nails, grinding teeth, or chewing ice.
However, the benefits of having a beautiful smile far outweigh any risks associated with the procedure. Porcelain veneers look just like real teeth and no one will be able to tell the difference. Additionally, there is no need for drilling since the veneers are attached directly to the teeth. They also come in a variety of shades so you can find the perfect color for you.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry recommends porcelain veneers for those with enamel erosion, as they provide an aesthetically pleasing solution while also protecting the underlying structure of the tooth.

It is important to choose an experienced provider when getting porcelain veneers as they are expensive and difficult to apply. Most people with porcelain veneers need to wear a professional night guard while sleeping in order to protect their new dental work. Porcelain veneers are made from ultra-thin laminate and require minimal removal of tooth structure before being applied. In about two weeks, a thin layer of porcelain is placed over the front and edge of the teeth to lengthen short teeth, repair broken or chipped teeth, or improve tooth color.
Traditional porcelain veneers are made from an impression that is sent to a dental laboratory. Instant veneers are less expensive than porcelain veneers but cannot be matched exactly to your natural teeth since they are prefabricated. Porcelain veneers make you look younger by covering and correcting chipped, shortened and yellowed teeth. A complete smile makeover can be achieved by covering all your teeth with porcelain veneers and creating a “magic wand” effect.
With proper dental care, good oral hygiene, and regular checkups, porcelain veneers can last up to 20 years or more.
