Are Porcelain Veneers Right for You?
Porcelain veneers can solve a number of dental imperfections. From discolored to crooked teeth, from chipped to uneven teeth, veneers are a relatively pain-free option for optimizing your smile. So how do you know if veneers are right for you?
The quick answer is that the decision will be best made in close consultation with your dentist. He or she will consider the following factors:
- How severe are the defects of your teeth? Some more severe dental problems (such as root decay) may be best solved by alternate procedures.
- Do you have existing fillings or other corrective applications (such as false teeth, bridges, etc.)? This may increase the cost or time needed to apply veneers.
- What’s your budget? Because they are permanent, veneers should be done right. Spending the extra bucks on the highest-grade material and a well-established dentist will pay off in the long run. Shopping around can help you save money, but when in doubt, choose quality over price.
Porcelain veneers are tough, long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing. If your smile is in need of an upgrade, contact us for a consultation to get started.
