Strong, healthy and bright teeth are a sign of good oral health, but because of age, injury and even genetics, we sometimes need a little help to achieve it. We live in a great age, where dental advancement has given us so many options to fix our teeth according to our lifestyles or preferences. As a result, there has been a global uptick in elective dentistry procedures and this number is sure to go up. According to Statista, more than 28% of people aged 18 to 34 felt the appearance and condition of their teeth affected “their ability to interview for a job.” These people are great candidates for procedures that would improve their teeth.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?
One of the greatest tools we have available for healthier and better teeth are dental veneers made from porcelain. These are thin layers that are bonded over your teeth to give them a brand-new surface. They instantly make teeth whiter, eliminate stains, marks and discolouration. But the benefits aren’t just visual. Porcelain veneers can also be used to give us better dental health by solving other issues that arise with our teeth.
Symmetry and Uniformity
Veneers can help you achieve a uniform set of teeth that is completely even, symmetrical and aligned. They are a simple way for you to improve the shape of your teeth without having to make structural changes to your teeth and jaws. They can also be used to hide any chips or cracks and address any odd shaped teeth.
Closing Gaps Between Teeth
Having gaps between your teeth isn’t just an annoyance. It can make eating and enjoying food quite a nuisance when it keeps getting in between the spaces. Gaps can also lead to tooth decay when food gets trapped and the tooth isn’t cleaned sufficiently. Veneers can be used to even out these gaps and cover them so that your teeth can function better, and you can enjoy popcorn again!
Prevention and Protection
Porcelain veneers are the ultimate preventative measure against cracked and stained teeth. Your teeth won’t have to be battered without a shield. They provide a supportive structure for you to bite, chew and eat without the fear of further damaging your teeth.
The great thing with veneers is that they are fitted on top of your teeth, so they are a quick, easy but highly effective way to make noticeable and considerable changes to your teeth. This helps you do away with many of the issues that threaten your dental health and takes us one step closer to an overall healthy body.
