The Pros and Cons of Porcelain Veneers

Having a great smile is important and dental veneers can help you correct dental flaws so your smile looks great. These veneers can be used to help correct gaps between teeth, to cover discoloured teeth, or to repair other visual flaws. Porcelain veneers are a popular choice today, but you should always weigh both the pros and cons before deciding if this is the right option for you.

Porcelain Veneers – The Pros

Of course, dental veneers made of porcelain come with a variety of great pros you’ll enjoy. One great pro is their realistic appearance. They look very close to the natural enamel that covers your teeth naturally, so they do look realistic and natural. You’ll also find that porcelain veneers are stain resistant, since the material is impervious. Even wine and coffee won’t stain these veneers. The durability of porcelain dental veneers is a huge pro as well. While plastic veneers are only last about seven years, you’ll find that porcelain ones will last for about 15 years.

Porcelain Veneers – The Cons

You’ll also want to consider the cons that come with porcelain dental veneers before making your final decision. One of the main cons is the high cost of going with this type of veneers. A single veneer may end up costing quite a bit of money. This can quickly add up if you plan to have several teeth veneered. Although porcelain veneers are quite durable, they can break or chip. If this occurs, the veneers have to be replaced or repaired, which can also be expensive. Some people deal with teeth sensitivity as well when they decide to go with these veneers.

While there are both pros and cons to choosing porcelain veneers, you will find that they are a great option if you’re looking for a way to eliminate small dental flaws. They can give you the beautiful smile that you’ve always wanted, allow you to smile without worrying about how your teeth look to others.
