Marietta area patients ask, are porcelain veneers worth it?

Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley, of 32 Dental, work with many patients in the Marietta area who are interested in restorative solutions such as porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are custom-made for patients and are fabricated to bond over the natural teeth to cover problems such as misalignment, permanent staining, spacing between teeth, and damage. Many patients ask, “Are porcelain veneers worth it?”

Most patients who have had porcelain veneers placed within their smiles will attest to their advantages and tell others that porcelain veneers are definitely worth it. The value of porcelain veneers will extend decades when patients take good care of them. Patients can consider porcelain veneers a wonderful investment in their smiles and will find that they provide not only beauty but self-confidence.

Porcelain veneers have many advantages over alternative solutions including composite dental bonding. Patients with dental bonding can cover up imperfections in a similar manner but will find they only last a few years and are susceptible to staining. Porcelain veneers last much longer and are stain-resistant, allowing them to keep their beauty and appearance for many years. Porcelain veneers are extremely strong and can last a long time with proper care. Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley can answer any questions patients may have on the beauty and function of veneers, as well as maintenance to ensure they last.

The process of porcelain veneers takes just a few weeks. Patients start by consulting with their dentist to determine candidacy. The front surface of the tooth is prepared with the removal of a thin portion of enamel, after which impressions are made of the teeth and sent to an outside ceramist for the fabrication of the new veneers.

Porcelain veneers are a wonderful investment in the smile. Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley will suggest them for patients ready to make a positive change to their smiles in a permanent way.
