Why Choose Veneers In Mission District?
We’ve placed so many veneers that it’s as common as a filling or cleaning. As a patient, there are some things you should consider before opting for veneers. Before we run through the list of the good and the bad, let’s tell you exactly what veneers are …
Veneers are extremely thin pieces of tooth-colored porcelain that are attached to your teeth. This makes it possible to hide imperfections that are visible to the eye. At our practice, we can complete the entire process in just two visits.
The pros of veneers …
- Achieve a brighter smile. If your teeth have lost their natural shine due to bad habits, medications, or other causes, this is one way you bring your old smile back to life. Veneers are stain-resistant, so you don’t need to worry about discoloration again.
- Say goodbye to minor aesthetic concerns. While braces and Invisalign treatment will permanently correct crooked teeth, veneers in Mission District can sometimes be used to mask the fact your teeth don’t line up perfectly. This may not be the best option for you, but we will assess your smile and your own needs during a no-obligation consultation.
- Fix damaged enamel. Years of aggressive brushing or damage caused by highly acidic foods or drinks can wear down your tooth enamel, the outer (white) part everyone sees. Enamel is on your side as it protects teeth from cavities and other problems. Veneers are a good replacement for lost enamel.
The cons of veneers …
- They are permanent. Make sure to weigh all your options before going ahead with veneers.
- They aren’t inexpensive. In 2017, the average cost of one veneer was about $1,300, according to a survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
- You may experience increased sensitivity. It’s possible that you’ll suddenly feel hot and cold temperatures on the teeth with veneers. This isn’t unusual. The good news is it goes away – for most patients – in a matter of days.
