Advantages and Disadvantages of Porcelain Veneers By SEO Admin on February 21, 2011





If you have some sort of problem with you smile, you know already just how much that can affect your self-confidence, even among your friends. For this reason, many people turn to cosmetic dentistry in order to improve the appearance and health of their smiles. Our Staten Island cosmetic dentist and the team at the office have been able to achieve excellent results. One of the means of achieving such results is porcelain veneers.

Now you may have heard of porcelain veneers on television or on the internet, but you are perhaps not sure what they are. Well, porcelain veneers are these thin shells that are affixed to the front of your teeth. They are custom color matched so that they look just like your regular teeth. These sturdy ceramic shells help make your smile look cleaner and, in general, better.

There are plenty of advantages to getting Staten Island porcelain veneers. For one, porcelain veneers are able to address multiple dental problems. Minor chips and cracks, major dental stains, minor crookedness, and slight unevenness can all be fixed by using porcelain veneers. Since theyre color matched (as mentioned above), porcelain veneers are practically undetectable.

Now, that said, there are a few disadvantages to note about porcelain veneers. One main thing to note is that porcelain veneers are not susceptible to teeth whitening and other bleaching treatments. If you have multiple discolored teeth and want to have the brightest smile possible, its advisable that you undergo teeth whitening treatment before you have porcelain veneers placed. Another disadvantage is the cost, which may be prohibitive to some patients. That said, there are financing options and payment plans available to ensure that a great smile is not outside of anyones price range.

To learn more about porcelain veneers as well as other options for improved smiles and enhanced dental health, be sure to contact our office in Staten Island. We look forward to seeing you in person to discuss these matters at length.
