Dental veneers are a pretty common part of cosmetic dentistry. However, not many patients of cosmetic dentistry understand the benefits that dental veneers provide. Here are some little known facts about dental veneers that will help you to better understand their benefits:

  1. Affect More Than Appearances: Not only do veneers increase the appearance of your smile, but they can also strengthen them, as well. This is because veneers add an extra layer of enamel, which reduces sensitivity, and prevents instances of tooth decay. This can then allow you to be more comfortable with your smile, as well as able to live more comfortably, as well since it reduces sensitivity. 
  2. Different Materials: Veneers can be made of different materials all of which provide different benefits. This allows you to work with your dentist to choose veneers that are just right for you and your smile. For example, if the reason for the veneers is simply to increase the appearance of your smile, then you may choose a material that provides the shiniest and the most white appearance.
  3. Last Up to Ten Years: Veneers are extremely thin and are placed on your teeth, and because of this, they do not cause tooth reduction and they continue to keep your teeth healthy. For these reasons, veneers will last for a long period of time. So if you are considering veneers, you should be aware that you are going to be changing the appearance of your smile in a positive way and it is going to last for up to ten years or more!
  4. Professional Dentists Blend Veneers: One worry patients have about veneers is the chance that the veneers will stand out against their other teeth that may not be as white as the veneers. However, with the help of professional dentists, they will be sure that they blend so well they will be indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth. They will be sure that the veneer lines up with the gums, and are the correct shape and shade.
