Are Porcelain Veneers Stain Resistant?January 22, 2017
They are an oral health product that has been available for many years, but many patients still don’t have a comprehensive understanding of the benefits associated with porcelain veneers, or how to maintain porcelain veneers over the long-term. To help guide those considering undergoing treatment for the placement of porcelain veneers, this latest post will highlight the treatment benefits.
Resistant to Staining
The good news is that porcelain veneers are resistant to staining. However, patients that enjoy hard foods such as candy and nuts do have to consider the impact these foods might have on their veneers. The resin with which veneers are coated can be impacted by hard foods, and over time, this resin could be damaged, allowing staining to occur in areas underneath. This means those who want to retain the stain-resistant qualities of the veneer should carefully consider the types of foods they consume.
Appearance of Natural Teeth
Another clear benefit of porcelain veneers is that they appear exactly the same as natural teeth. This means that those in the wearer’s social circle will not be able to tell they’re wearing the product. It also means patients can enjoy the comfort of wearing the veneer without having to cover their mouth when they talk, or worry about the perceptions of others.
Natural Teeth Remain Intact
For those who are using veneers to cover natural teeth, a benefit of porcelain veneers over other treatment options such as crowns is that porcelain veneers can be used to keep natural teeth intact. Only a minimal amount of material from the natural tooth will be altered to fit the porcelain veneer.
Added Aesthetic Value
Another of the benefits offered by the use of veneers is they can be used on teeth that resist whitening treatments. White veneers can give the appearance of a white natural smile for the patient and help them to move forward within their social environments while boosting their self-confidence.
