Our cosmetic dental treatments make your dream smile come true while minimizing time, hassle, and amounts of procedures necessary to meet your goals.
Are Porcelain Veneers Worth It?
For patients with a number of minor cosmetic dental issues that compound to create an overall unattractive smile that inhibits self-esteem, veneers can be truly transformative. Patients who are uninterested in multiple procedures, such as teeth whitening, orthodontics, and invasive restorations, veneers can present a comprehensive solution through just one treatment process and in as few as two dental visits.
To determine if you will benefit from veneer therapy, Dr. Cho examines your smile for the presence of the following cosmetic concerns:
• Deeply Stained Teeth
• Cracked or Broken Teeth
• Mismatched Teeth Sizes
• Slight Overcrowding
While veneers are not recommended as restorations for severely damaged teeth, they do well to repair small chips, cracks, and breaks – returning teeth to their healthy appearance and making them whiter as well. For patients whose teeth cannot be whitened by traditional bleaching methods, these thin sheets of porcelain cover dull dental enamel, giving them a healthy white sheen. Though adding veneers does require that natural teeth be modified by less than a millimeter in thickness, many patients find this process to be worth it in terms of how veneers are able to create the appearance of whiter, straighter, and healthier teeth.
Traditional Veneers vs. No-Prep and Chair-Side Treatments
Patients who come into their veneer consultation having researched their options understand that there are several ways to go about veneer treatment; however, our Long Beach cosmetic dentist prefers the porcelain variety of veneers for their durability and longevity.
No-prep veneers and chair-side resin veneers are options as well, though these treatments are not ideal for every patient and are limited in their ability to correct cosmetic flaws or to provide lasting beautiful aesthetics. Porcelain veneers can be applied to most patients and offer superiority in quality over time than the aforementioned alternative veneers choices.
