Pros and Cons of Dental Veneers

Joyful dates

Are you unhappy with cosmetic flaws in your smile? If so, you might be considering dental veneers. These thin porcelain shells are bonded to the teeth surfaces to mask aesthetically displeasing aspects. Our Los Angeles dental veneers dentist can inform you of everything you need to know about this option, but in the meantime, here are some pros and cons of the treatment.

Pros

Dental veneers can effectively mask a wide variety of cosmetic issues, including stains, chips, cracks, gaps, and crookedness. They are made specifically for each patient, using impressions to ensure they fit over the teeth perfectly and mask what they need to. Furthermore, they are made using porcelain, which offers many benefits. It is durable, stain resistant, and looks very similar to dental enamel.

Cons

Possibly the only con regarding veneers is that they are permanent. A thin layer of enamel must be removed in order to place them, so that the teeth do not look too big afterwards. The teeth will therefore not be strong enough on their own, making the veneers necessary from that point forward.
