Are you looking to give your smile a makeover? Dental veneers are a completely personalized way to take your smile to the next level. But moving forward with this cosmetic treatment is a big decision. With any dental treatment, there are always pros and cons to weigh when determining if they are the right treatment option for you. In this blog post, we point out some aspects to consider if you are interested in transforming your smile with dental veneers.

What Are Veneers?

Dental veneers can make your smile look the way you have always wanted it to look! These are thin porcelain shells that are adhered to the front side of teeth. Veneers can be used to completely change the smile’s appearance or alter the appearance of a few misshapen or damaged teeth. Having confidence in your smile can benefit many aspects of your life, such as your career and your relationships, and improve your quality of life and overall sense of personal satisfaction.

Pros of Veneers

  • Made from durable porcelain so they are resistant to stains and chips
  • Provides a more uniform and attractive smile while still looking natural
  • Simple to maintain with daily brushing and flossing and routine dental visits
  • Customizable and unique

Cons of Veneers

  • While veneers are durable, they do need to be replaced with fresh veneers roughly every 15 to 20 years
  • Veneers require a significant amount of enamel removal before being bonded to the teeth, making them a permanent cosmetic decision
  • Can be costly
