Dental veneers are a popular option for cosmetic dentistry, and whether you need to improve the look or quality of your smile, the qualities offered by dental veneers may be just right for you.
What are dental veneers?
These cosmetic porcelain shells cover the fronts of teeth to make them strong, beautiful and natural looking. If you have teeth that are misshapen, chipped or discolored, we invite you to review the pros and cons of dental veneers to help you know if they might be right for you.
Dental Veneer Pros
– Veneers cover discolored or chipped teeth and make them look whiter so that you can enjoy a beautiful smile all the time.
– The dental veneer placement process is usually just two visits because it is very simple and usually has no need of anesthesia.
– Your teeth can be protected and strengthened by dental veneers, which offer your teeth a durable layer that helps protect them from harm.
– You can enjoy immediate and long-term benefits of dental veneers because your teeth can look beautiful now and last for up to 20 years before the veneers need to be replaced.
– The dental porcelain that makes up dental veneers mimics the appearance of actual teeth to help your smile look natural, as well as provide a stain-resistant material to keep your teeth beautiful for years.
Dental Veneer Cons
– Dental veneers can be more expensive than other cosmetic dental procedures, though they can be an excellent investment due to their long lifespan.
– The procedure for dental veneers cannot be reversed, and you should be sure of your choice before your veneers are placed.
– Dental veneers can result in some tooth sensitivity to foods and drinks that are hot or cold because some tooth enamel is removed during the placement process.
– Not every patient is a candidate for dental veneers since they can’t be placed on unhealthy teeth that have been affected by tooth decay or gum disease.
