The Pros and Cons of Veneers. Are They Worth It?

VeneersVeneers are a widely popular cosmetic dental treatment and with good cause. Few other procedures have the potential to completely transform the look of a person’s smile quite like porcelain veneers, but are veneers perfect for you? Take a look at some of the pros and cons to veneers, below.

 

PROS

Improved appearance – Veneers can improve the shape and color of your teeth, and are a great way of filling any gaps or crooked teeth.


Stain resistance – Veneers are highly stain resistant, meaning that once they’ve been applied they should remain as white as they were initially for as long as you have them.


Durability – Veneers can last up to 20 years if they’re taken care of properly.

Easy to maintain – Taking care of Veneers is very similar to taking care of your real teeth. Daily brushing and routine visits to your dental provider should keep them in top shape!


Fast results – Unlike orthodontic treatments like Invisalign can take months to correct slightly misaligned teeth, veneers are effective as soon as the treatment is complete.

 

CONS

Not everyone is a suitable candidate – While most people should be fine to have the treatment, patients with decayed or weakened teeth cannot have veneers fitted.

Repairs – While Veneers can often be repaired or patched up, porcelain veneers often need to be fully replaced if they become chipped or cracked.

Fitting – Getting veneers fitted is usually a fairly straightforward process that requires multiple visits to the dentist. This will involve an initial consultation, having the prep work done and temporary veneers fitted, then the final fitting itself. For those with dental phobia, these multiple visits can cause some anxiety.
