What You Need To Know about Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, cosmetic dentistry veneers can give you a smile you love. Learn the facts and the factors about getting dental veneers to see if they’ll suit your smile.

A Closer Look at Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers

Veneers are very thin, tooth-colored shells made of porcelain or resin that are placed on the front of teeth to cover imperfections and make your smile look its best. 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 Allentown and often preferred over both cosmetic dental bonding and dental crowns.

The Positives and Problems with Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers

  1. Positive – Naturally-Perfect Look and Fit
    One of the greatest advantages is their natural-looking results. Since 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. Problem – Slight Side Effects
    Treatment can come with some mild side effects such as tooth sensitivity, but this usually subsides in a short time.
  3. Positive – Stain-Resistant Results
    Veneers are made of materials that won’t stain or fade over time, so you can eat and drink the dark foods you love without any worry. In contrast, cosmetic dental bonding is likely to stain and require additional trips and treatment from a family dentist Allentown
  4. Problem – Cost
    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. Positive – A Durable Dental 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.
