Discover the Many Benefits of Dental Veneers

There are a number of options available to you if you’re looking to improve your smile. We’ve talked a lot lately in the blog about teeth whitening and Invisalign treatments, but another method for getting the smile you’ve always dreamed of is having dental veneers put in. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) estimates that 599,000 porcelain veneer procedures are performed on a yearly basis, which makes it the third most performed cosmetic enhancement that dental staffs perform.

Porcelain dental veneers have seen a dramatic boost in popularity over the last several years, with an increasing number of individuals seeking to greatly improve the look of their severely damaged smile. The number of patients having the procedure done has jumped a whopping 250 percent over the past five years, according to the AACD. The procedure is conducted by placing a thin strip of porcelain over the surface of the teeth to create an otherwise impossibly-perfect smile.

Women have also slowly been discovering another benefit of veneers: their added thickness can push out the patient’s lips to create a more ample shape and pull the skin in the corners tighter to lessen smile wrinkles. Of course, the effect isn’t the same as getting actual cosmetic surgery performed, but getting dental veneers put in by our team of San Antonio dentists can subtlety improve your smile in more ways than one.
