But how much do you really know about this cosmetic treatment? Do questions begin to nag at your brain, keeping you from scheduling this service? Did you feel really wonderful and confident about veneers until a friend told you information that made it sound like a terrible idea? Fortunately, we know firsthand that this solution provides patients with exceptional aesthetic improvement, as well as long-term results. To help you become familiar with this knowledge, we have gathered the following information to assist you in differentiating between myth and fact.

Common Myths and Facts Associated with Porcelain Veneers

Myth #1: Veneers Break Very Easily

As a matter of fact, we consider veneers a second runner up in durability when compared with your natural teeth. As you know, your teeth are incredibly strong and can endure a lifetime of wear and tear. As long as you care for your veneers like you would your own smile, you can expect a long, beautiful life out of this cosmetic treatment.

Myth #2: Veneers Will Yellow Quickly

This could not be further from the facts. The porcelain layers that make up veneers are known for their ability to resist staining. This means you can eat or drink according to your usual preferences – coffee and tea included – without worrying that your smile will suddenly appear lackluster. Brush with non-abrasive toothpaste at least twice daily and you’ll continue to enjoy a white smile.

Myth #3: Porcelain Veneers Look Artificial

To the contrary, this treatment is prized for its ability to dramatically improve your smile, while maintaining a natural finish. The translucent nature of the veneers creates the illusion that your smile is your own – this is because your teeth are naturally translucent, too.
