A porcelain veneer is an excellent way of treating misaligned, discoloured and damaged teeth. It is the best way to get the beautiful and radiant smile you always wanted. However, some common misconceptions might deter you from taking the treatment. This post debunks some common myths that professionals offering porcelain veneers Brisbane would never want you to believe.

Myth 1. Porcelain Veneers Are Only Meant to Improve Aesthetics 


It is true that veneers correct minor flaws of your smile and drastically improve your looks. However, it would be flawed to say that aesthetic is the only thing they enhance. Veneers give you a perfect smile that you can confidently wear to all social gatherings; it uplifts your self-image and betters your social life. The impact of a confident smile could be profound and a life-changing experience for most. 


Myth 2. Veneers Look Too Perfect and Fake 


Most people feel that porcelain veneers are available only in a single shade of white, and after putting on porcelain veneer, their teeth will look excessively white and fake. Contrary to the common belief, porcelain veneers are available in many tooth-coloured shades; they are highly customisable and made to match the patient’s original teeth. Once the procedure is complete except for your dentist, nobody will make out the difference.


Myth 3. Porcelain Veneers Make the Teeth Fragile 


Since the tooth enamel is scraped before placing the porcelain veneer, it might temporarily increase tooth sensitivity. However, once the shell is placed on the teeth, the tooth sensitivity is taken care of, and the teeth become more robust than the original teeth. With proper dental hygiene and regular visits to the dentists, the veneers will strengthen your teeth. 


Myth 4. Veneers Only Correct the Front Teeth of the Upper Jaw 


While it is true that the top front teeth are the most prominent and often known as the social six and correcting them immediately enhances your smile. The treatment of veneers is not restricted to top front teeth. All fourteen teeth visible to the teeth while talking and smiling can be corrected using porcelain veneers. 


Myth 5. Porcelain Veneers Procedure Is Time-Consuming and Obvious 


The entire procedure of placing porcelain veneers can be achieved in just three sittings. In the first session, the dentist will assess your mouth for any underlying issues, take an impression of the pearly whites, and send it to the lab to make the veneers. The dentist may choose to prepare your teeth on the same day or fix a date to prepare your teeth for the procedure, and in the third session, he will place the veneer. 


Myth 6. Porcelain Veneers Are Invasive 


Porcelain veneers are thin covers made to fit the patient’s teeth. The dentist has to scrape a small amount of enamel so that the teeth do not look bulky when the porcelain shells are placed. Scaling of the enamel also aids in better adhesion of the veneer. However, this procedure is minimally invasive and almost painless. One needs to bear in mind that porcelain veneers are irreversible due to the scraping of the teeth involved. 


Myth 7. Porcelain Veneers Are Fragile Easily Break and Stain 


Porcelain veneers are as strong as tooth enamel; they do not change colour or stain easily. Regular brushing of the teeth and gentle flossing of the teeth is all that is required to maintain your veneers. With proper care, the veneers will last almost 15 -20 years. However, you may have to quit habits like biting the nails and grinding the teeth, which are detrimental even to the original teeth. 




A porcelain veneer is famous for its natural look both in colour and texture. One might be surprised to know that it is a fairly common treatment, as more and more people opt for this treatment to perfect their smile. With most of the myths debunked, you should be able to go for the treatment with confidence. However, the dentist will be able to give you better clarity for any questions you may have.
