At Palisades Dental, we can get you fitted with dental veneers in just two visits.
Advantages of Porcelain Veneers
Before we go into detail about the advantages of dental veneers, it is important to know exactly what veneers are: thin pieces of porcelain which are applied over the front of your teeth to enhance the shape or color of your smile.
Dental veneers alone can be a life-changing procedure as it can completely transform the way you view yourself. It is important to determine if you’re the right fit for dental veneers. At Palisades Dental, we can sit down and discuss the pros and cons, as well as any other details involved in the procedure.
Some of the advantages of dental veneers include:
Improved Appearance – The majority of patients seeking a veneer procedure are those looking to improve the appearance of their smile. Injuries, gum disease and neglect can all lead to imperfections with your smile. Dental veneers from Palisades Dental can help change your smile for the better.
Easy Procedure – Another advantage is the short amount of time needed to complete the procedure. In just two visits, you can walk out with a stunning new smile that is sure to turn heads. The first visit is set up to prepare your teeth, take impressions and create the temporary veneers. After that, we’re able to apply your new porcelain veneers.
No Change of Habit – One of the best parts about dental veneers is there is no need to change any of your daily habits to protect your teeth. There’s no need to avoid cold or hot liquids, eat certain foods or take care of your teeth differently than you normally would.
Just because there are a ton of advantages, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t any drawbacks to a dental veneer procedure. Although you keep the natural shape on your tooth, it is necessary to remove .5 – 1mm of enamel from the front of each tooth in order to apply the veneers properly. While this is a small amount of enamel to remove, this action is irreversible.
