Are Dental Veneers the Right Choice for You?

Are you displeased with the appearance of your smile? Do you have smile flaws like discolored, worn down, chipped, or gapped teeth? Dental veneers may be right for you! Dental veneers are thin shells that are custom made from tooth-colored materials to cover the front of your teeth. They can improve the appearance of your smile. Before you decide whether or not to have dental veneers placed by Drs. Doman, Stark, Jardine, and Andros, consider the following:

Pros:
Dental veneers are made to look like your natural teeth. Dental veneers can restore the beauty of worn down or chipped teeth. Veneers can improve the appearance of slightly crooked or irregularly shaped teeth. Dental veneers can close small gaps in your smile. A shade of veneer can be chosen that makes your teeth look whiter. Porcelain dental veneers are stain resistant, so they will keep their beautiful color. Veneers are a more conservative approach to altering the appearance of your teeth than dental crowns. They don’t require as much tooth alteration before placement and they are still stronger and more aesthetic.

Cons:
Having dental veneers placed is not reversible. Because the enamel is shaped, the teeth may become more sensitive to hot and cold. Your dental veneers may not precisely match the shade of your natural teeth. You should be aware that once your veneers are in place, their color cannot be altered.
