5 Non-Cosmetic Reasons to Consider Veneers

When you hear the words “porcelain veneers,” you’re probably thinking about how they would improve the look of your smile. But there’s more to veneers than meets the eye.

These ultra-thin but durable teeth coatings do double-duty as both smile beautifiers and problem fixers. They not only hide imperfections in your teeth but also provide side benefits. 

Here’s how they work and what they can do for you.

Although veneers are one of cosmetic dentistry’s go-to solutions to camouflage smile flaws, they have practical advantages, too.
