These tooth coverings allow for the correction of various flaws in your teeth from chips, to discoloration, to general misshapen teeth. However, porcelain veneers are a permanent solution as your teeth have to be slightly filed down so that these coverings can adhere to them. From that point on your tooth correction options will simply be limited to replacing your veneers. Continue reading to find out more if porcelain veneers are the proper tooth correction treatment for you.

You Have Multiple Aesthetic Goals in Mind for Your Teeth 

Porcelain veneers are versatile, which is one of the major reasons why they are such a popular dental correction option. If you have chipped teeth, stained teeth, or crooked/gapped teeth that you would like to fix, veneers can be an excellent solution. Especially if you have multiple factors such as these present at the same time. This can be a catch-all dental procedure that allows you to amplify your smile while fixing numerous different dental discrepancies in your mouth. Also, your new veneer smile can be adapted based on your smile goals. Whether you want a brilliantly white smile that is “perfect” or you want a beautiful smile that matches the current color of your other teeth-either can be done with veneers.

You Want a Tooth Correction Option That Lasts

Porcelain veneers are a permanent smile correction option. Now, with that being said, you will have to have your veneers re-done. But veneers tend to last anywhere from ten to fifteen years before needing any major adjustments or replacement with proper care. Where the permanence comes into play is that you will not have to be concerned with other tooth correction methods. Your teeth have to be filed down for veneers to adhere correctly, and once that is done there is no way to add the enamel back onto your teeth.

You Have Good Dental Hygiene

Porcelain veneers do not protect you from all the usual care needed for your teeth. You will still be brushing, flossing, and rinsing your teeth as usual. With proper care, veneers can last ten to fifteen years as we mentioned prior. That’s why it's still important to be responsible for your dental health.
