No matter what’s imperfect about your teeth, including wear and stains, there’s a good chance porcelain veneers from your cosmetic dentist in Bend can fix it all. Have you been interested in veneers? Are you considering a cosmetic makeover for your smile? Then you’re in the right place at Ponderosa Dental Center and with Dr. Joshua Prentice

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Before we dive into all of the many benefits of porcelain veneers, let’s talk about what they are first. Your veneers will be customized out of unique tooth-colored porcelain that will effectively fit over the front surfaces of your teeth. Your Bend cosmetic dentist will bond them to your natural teeth, creating a naturally beautiful smile improvement. Porcelain veneers generally can last as long as 7 to 15 years. 

What Are the Benefits of Bend Porcelain Veneers?

Now that you know a little more about porcelain veneers, you might also be curious to know about the many benefits they can bring to your oral and even your overall health, including:

  • Powerful Stain Resistance – Porcelain veneers are beneficial because they resist stains more easily than other resin materials. Your veneers are also cavity resistant compared to our natural tooth enamel. Once your veneer treatment is complete, you’ll still want to make sure to brush and floss regularly. 
  • A Whiter Smile – Your veneers are created with custom shading that can be lightened by several shades giving you a permanently whiter smile. It’s another way your Bend cosmetic dentist can transform your teeth.
  • Better Overall Appearance – Not only do porcelain veneers correct stains and can whiten your teeth, but they also fix gaps for perfect spacing and a more balanced look you’re sure to love. Porcelain veneers are often also used to increase the thickness and height of your teeth, creating a more uniform appearance.
