Face the Facts about Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers

One of the best ways to improve the look of teeth is with cosmetic dentistry veneers. Discover the huge value of veneers and see if they’re right for you.

The Natural Beauty of Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers

Veneers are very thin, tooth-colored shells made of porcelain or resin that cover the front of teeth to correct imperfections and enhance their appearance. The shells are customized by a veneer dentist to be the perfect color, shape, size, and fit for you. Veneers have become so popular that they’re offered by almost every family dentist Philadelphia and often preferred over both cosmetic dental bonding and dental crowns.

The Pros and Cons of Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers

  1. Pro – A Natural Match
    One of the greatest advantages is their natural-looking results. Because they are customized to your color, aesthetic, and comfort needs, no one will know you have them and you’ll feel confident about your smile.
  2. Con – Slight Side Effects
    Treatment can come with some mild side effects such as tooth sensitivity, but this usually subsides in a short time.
  3. Pro – A Stain-Resistant Smile
    Veneers are designed to resist both staining and fading over time, so you can eat and drink with ease. In contrast, cosmetic dental bonding is likely to stain and require additional trips and treatment from a family dentist Philadelphia
  4. Con – Cost Can Be a Concern
    While the price of veneers is higher than both cosmetic dental bonding and dental crowns, they are more natural-looking and long-lasting so they pay off over time. To help reduce costs, ask your veneer dentist if they take dental insurance, offer payment programs, or accept discount dental plans like DentRite.
  5. Pro – A Long-lasting Smile Solution

Veneers are very strong and durable, much more so than other dental options. With proper care and cleaning, they can keep looking good and lasting for more than 20 years.
