This summer, a whiter smile is the one accessory that will stand out no matter what. Whether you’ll be spending your time video chatting or socializing in person, few things can make your smile red-carpet-ready like dental veneers. If you’ve been wondering if veneers are worth it, consider the pros and cons!

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over the front of your natural tooth. They can mask a variety of cosmetic imperfections like stains, chips, or minor alignment issues. At Edgewater Dental Arts, we custom-create dental veneers for each individual patient so you can rest assured that yours will expertly fit your smile.

The Pros of Getting Dental Veneers

Many people have something they’d like to change about their smile. No matter what you’d like to do, there’s a good chance that dental veneers are up to the task! Not only are veneers versatile, they’re also long-lasting and easy to care for. Just keep up with your regular routine of brushing twice daily, flossing each day, and visiting our office regularly and your veneers can last up to 10 years!

The Cons of Getting Dental Veneers

When it comes to dental veneers, the perfect fit is paramount. To ensure the right fit, we typically remove a small amount of your natural tooth enamel. This allows the veneer to lay flush against your tooth and naturally mask any imperfections. However, some people do not like the idea of reshaping their natural tooth. If that sounds like you, you might be better suited for one of our teeth whitening or other cosmetic treatments.
