DENTAL MYTHS AND TRUTHS ABOUT PORCELAIN VENEERS

Are you looking for an easy and effective way to improve your chipped, worn down, stained, or crooked teeth? Our dental team at Comfort Care Dental provides several restorative and cosmetic options to restore your smile. One popular option is porcelain veneers, but many may at first be hesitant towards the idea of veneers. Continue reading to learn more about some myths surrounding porcelain veneers.

Myth #1: The tooth needs to be ‘filed’ down a lot!

Our dentist will need to remove a thin layer of the individual tooth prior to applying the porcelain veneers. This layer is less than a millimeter and does not affect the structure of the tooth. It is only enough to allow the veneer to go over the tooth without feeling or looking bulky. Innovations have allowed our team to provide more comfortable applications without compromising the tooth.

Myth #2: Dental veneers do not look natural.

It is nearly impossible for many to notice individuals who have dental veneers. Our dental team can customize them to closely match the rest of your teeth’s natural shape, size, and color. The porcelain material is used because it resembles the natural feel and looks of a tooth’s enamel.

Myth 3: Dental veneers are fragile.

Porcelain veneers are created to be as strong as your tooth’s enamel. This does mean, however, that they are not invincible. Similar to your natural teeth, dental veneers can become damaged. Taking proper care of your dental veneers through the use of regular exams and cleanings will ensure they last a long time.
