Porcelain Veneers Advantages and Disadvantages By on July 07, 2011

You have probably heard a lot about porcelain veneers. They’re one of the most popular treatment options out there for people considering a smile makeover. They’re a real hit with celebrities, and with good reason: porcelain veneers are just that effective. If you look at the pictures from a red carpet premiere, you’re sure to see a couple smiles that are courtesy of porcelain veneers (though you don’t even realize it).

Philadelphia area cosmetic dentist Dr. Bruce Wilderman has been using porcelain veneers to give patients the smiles of their dreams for years now. The best thing about porcelain veneers is that they have plenty of advantages but very few disadvantages. Let’s give both a look so you know just what porcelain veneers can do.

One of the great advantages of porcelain veneers is that they are versatile. If you have several dental problems, you may be able to have them all addressed with porcelain veneers alone. So just what can porcelain veneers deal with? Well, if you have chipped teeth or cracked teeth, porcelain veneers might be right for you. The same goes with stains on your teeth that are too tough for teeth whitening treatment. And crooked teeth? Well, porcelain veneers can take care of those too.

On top of versatility is their invisibility. That’s right. When you have porcelain veneers in place, they look just like natural teeth. Everyone will think you were born with a perfect smile. Porcelain veneers react to natural and artificial light just as your real teeth would, so unless people are really scrutinizing your smile up close and know what to look for, Philadelphia porcelain veneers are practically undetectable.

There are a few disadvantages to porcelain veneers that we should mention, but even these disadvantages have their silver linings. One thing is that they are stain resistant as well as resistant to tooth whitening treatments. So if you want to get a bright and white smile, that needs to be taken care of before the veneers are placed. Another disadvantage is that porcelain veneers can be expensive, yet there are many different financing options and payment plans we offer to make the cost more manageable for you and your budget.
