Why We Love Veneers

VeneersIt’s easy to see why cosmetic dentists love porcelain veneers: they are a cost-effective, low-impact and relatively non-invasive way to correct a number of minor dental flaws and challenges. For these same reasons, they are also a great choice for patients seeking a simple solution to boost their smile power.

Here’s our list of reasons why we think veneers are lovable. We’re willing to bet that you’ll “fall for” veneers after reading this list and imagining how they could improve your smile!

Why We Love Veneers

  1. They can fix a number of minor dental issues. Veneers, which are essentially “shells” that fit over your natural teeth and are held there using a special adhesive, can correct minor problems with tooth discoloration, shape, and/or rotation. They also can fill in gaps between teeth and can help cracked or broken teeth look and function normally again.
  2. The process for getting veneers is quick, easy and usually pain-free. Most of the time, it only takes two visits to receive your dental veneers. During the first visit, the dentist will prepare your natural teeth to receive the veneers and make impressions of your teeth so the veneers will look like your natural teeth (or better!). You will often leave that day with a set of temporary veneers. Visit number two is where you receive your permanent veneers. There is no recovery time after your veneer appointments; you can begin eating with them and flashing your new smile immediately!
  3. Veneers are kind to your mouth. Based on their strength, longevity, the biocompatibility of the porcelain used, and their aesthetics, veneers have been considered one of the most viable treatment modalities since their introduction in the early 1980s. By themselves, they will not cure every dental challenge you may have, but they rarely aggravate other conditions of your teeth or gums for which you may be receiving treatment.

“After providing veneers to patients for years, it’s easy for me to understand why they love them so much,” says Dr. Carol Ford, a cosmetic dentist with a practice in central Phoenix. “Veneers can take your smile from ‘ow’ to ‘wow’ in only two visits, and you can start reaping the benefits of your new smile the moment you walk out our door!”
