The Pros and Cons of Getting Porcelain Veneers

When considering any type of cosmetic dental work, there are usually both pros and cons involved. This is the case for those deciding whether or not to get porcelain veneers. Let’s start with the pros!

The Pros of Getting Porcelain Veneers

+ Natural Look and Feel

When applied by a professional, porcelain veneers will be practically undetectable by both the wearer and everyone else! Using top quality porcelain and the newest bonding adhesives, the dentists at Plymouth Valley Dental will be able to improve your smile like magic! Certain types of the small sheets of porcelain applied to the front and top surfaces of the patient’s teeth are so thin that they allow light to shine through and show forth the natural coloring of the teeth while hiding the stains. Other types can be colored by ceramic to match your natural color perfectly.

+ Durability

While other restorative options may be short term fixes, porcelain veneers will last most users up to a decade! They are designed to take on the harshest stains caused by cigarette smoke, coffee, soda and tea without losing their color or taking on any new colors.

+ One Procedure, One Solution

This cosmetic dental procedure can resolve multiple issues for patients. Whether you’re looking to cover up staining, chipped teeth, oddly shaped teeth, or even crooked teeth, porcelain veneers can correct these problems and offer the convenience and affordability of an “all-in-one” solution. The application of porcelain veneers is usually at least a two step process because the initial consultation molds must be made and then the veneers must be designed and applied. However, this is a worthwhile investment of time and money when you consider the great benefits that will last you years and years!

Now, let’s talk about the cons….

As mentioned, the application of porcelain veneers is usually at least a two step process and it could take even more visits. In order for this multiple visit procedure to be less intimidating and less intrusive to our patient’s schedules, we work with patients to come up with the fastest and most convenient timeline possible. While it does mean you’d be visiting the office more than once, keep in mind that this one procedure will take care of several issues and will last for a long time!

– Financial Investment

Depending on the amount of work that needs to be done to prepare teeth for the veneers and the actual number of veneers our ceramic artist will need to create, the price for the process can vary. In any case, veneers are a worthy investment and help patients become more confident because they will help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Plymouth Valley Dental works with all our patient’s insurance companies to create affordable payment plans for each individual situation.
