Benefits of Veneers and Care Tips

Porcelain veneers have become an increasingly popular cosmetic solution over the years, and it’s easy to see why. These thin, custom-made shells bond to the front of your teeth, giving you a flawless smile. Importantly, veneers look natural and beautiful. In addition, they are a versatile solution for many dental issues. This can include chipped or broken teeth, gaps between teeth, and severe discoloration. If you want to improve your smile, schedule a consultation with Dr. McCool.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers come with a variety of benefits that make the process worth it. 

Improved Appearance

One main benefit of porcelain veneers is that they enhance the look of your teeth. You can enjoy a brighter, straighter smile. In addition, Dr. McCool can customize your veneers to match the natural color of your teeth and improve the overall shape and size. With veneers, you can have the smile you’ve always wanted.


Porcelain veneers are incredibly durable and can last 10-15 years with proper care. They are made of high-quality materials that are resistant to staining and chipping. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, veneers provide long-lasting results.

Minimally Invasive

Another benefit of porcelain veneers is that they are minimally invasive. Unlike dental crowns, veneers only require removing a small amount of enamel. This means that the procedure is less painful and requires less recovery time.

Improved Confidence

Finally, porcelain veneers can greatly improve your self-confidence. If you are self-conscious about your smile, veneers can help you feel more comfortable with your teeth. With more confidence, you may notice a better quality of life. In addition, a beautiful smile may help you be more confident in your relationships.

How to Take Care of Porcelain Veneers

To help your veneers last as long as possible, you must know how to care for them properly.

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene

Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for helping your veneers last longer. Much like your natural teeth, you should brush twice daily and floss daily to remove plaque and food particles. In addition, using a soft-bristled toothbrush can help prevent scratching the surface of your veneers. You may want to avoid certain toothpaste that contains abrasive particles as well.

Avoid Staining Foods and Drinks

Most veneers are resistant to staining. However, they are not completely stain-proof. To prevent staining, avoid foods and drinks that stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, or berries. If you consume these foods or beverages, rinse your mouth with water afterward. This can help remove any remaining residue.

Don’t Use Your Teeth as Tools

Avoid using your teeth as tools to open packages or bite into hard objects. This can cause your veneers to chip or crack. If you play contact sports or other activities that could damage your teeth, wear a mouthguard. This can help prevent serious damage to your veneers.
