Who wouldn’t love a more symmetrical and beautiful smile? Imperfections in your teeth may be frustrating, but they don’t have to be prominent or permanent. Veneers are one of the most effective and fastest ways to enhance the look of one’s smile. From misshapen teeth to irreversible discoloration, porcelain veneers are an excellent way to address a number of concerns all at once. If you are interested in improving your smile, and in the increased confidence that can come with cosmetic treatment, learn how porcelain veneers could be beneficial for you.
Are veneers an expensive form of cosmetic treatment?
Veneers are more expensive than many other forms of cosmetic treatment, including dental bonding which accomplishes many of the same effects. That’s because the veneers must be custom crafted of dental porcelain, which is far more durable and stain resistant than the material used for bonding. This makes veneers more costly upfront, but a great long-term investment!
Will veneers take a long time to be completed?
The longest part of the veneer process is planning the perfect size and shape, based on your desires for your smile, and then having them carefully crafted by a ceramicist. Once your dentist has received them, however, the application process is quite quick.
Modern veneers are so thin that little preparation must be done to the enamel of your teeth, meaning far less filing is necessary than in the past. In fact, some dentists now offer no-prep veneers or minimal-prep veneers, which require very little or no adjustment to your natural teeth.
