Times Where You Would Not Want Veneers to Cover Imperfections

Times Where You Would Not Want Veneers to Cover ImperfectionsVeneers are a great option to cover up some imperfections in your teeth. They can make chipped, cracked crooked or dark teeth look straight, bright and white again. They offer a more affordable option than some other methods to fix these imperfections.

Veneers are a good option, but they are not perfect. There are some times when veneers are not the best option to cover up the imperfections. It is a good idea to learn when veneers are the right choice and when they are not the best choice.

The Problem with Veneers

Making the decision to get veneers may seem easy. People will think it is a cheaper alternative to other options and is the perfect way to fix the problem they have with their smile. Before turning to this, it is important to look at the possible downside of veneers.

The biggest downside is that it is a process that you cannot reverse. In order for the veneers to fit, enamel is often removed. Losing the enamel could lead to problems with the teeth. If you are turning to veneers because you don't like the way your teeth look and that is a result of poor oral hygiene, you are probably looking at more trouble at some point in time.

Veneers and Tooth Sensitivity

Many people suffer from tooth sensitivity. Sensitivity to hot and cold is a normal problem that many people have. Because you are removing the enamel, the problems with sensitivity can get worse after getting veneers.

The best way to find out if veneers are the right option for you is to talk to a professional in our office. We can figure out what the problem is with the appearance of your teeth and come up with the best solution that will not only be the most cost-effective treatment but will also give you the best result for the long term.
