What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a useful treatment in the armoury of the cosmetic dentist to help improve the look of your smile. They also have their place in general restorative dentistry for repairing fractured or unaesthetic teeth.
As with all treatments, there are advantages and disadvantages you should be aware of when considering your options…
Are you self-conscious about your smile? Do you avoid showing your teeth in photos or at job interviews? If you’d like to cover up embarrassing dental problems like chipped, discoloured, unevenly spaced, or misshapen teeth, dental veneers might be a good choice for you. There are a number of potential benefits to getting dental veneers which is why this is one of the most popular procedures performed in cosmetic dentistry. At Glenhaven Dental implant, we can help you determine whether or not veneers are the right solution for you.
Did you know that porcelain veneers are permanent and they actually resist decay and staining better than real teeth? Because the veneers are non-porous, they resist stains and cavities better than your natural tooth enamel (which is porous). With proper maintenance, a dental veneer will last between 10 and 15 years.
