What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can help improve the appearance of your teeth. These thin shells of porcelain are placed on the front of your teeth to cover up any aesthetic flaws, such as discoloration, chips, or gaps. They are attached to your teeth with a special dental cement, and can last for many years with proper care.
How Do Porcelain Veneers Compare Vs. Dental Bonding?
While both porcelain veneers and dental bonding are used to improve the appearance of your teeth, there are some key differences between the two. Dental bonding involves applying a composite material to your teeth, which is then hardened with a special light. Bonding can be completed quickly, but it may not last as long as porcelain veneers and is more prone to staining and chipping.
Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are a stronger and more durable option. They can last for many years with proper care and are less likely to become stained or damaged. Although they require a greater investment, many patients find that porcelain veneers are a worthwhile investment in their smile.
What Benefits Can I Expect From Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers offer many benefits beyond just improving the appearance of your teeth. They are a quick and easy way to enhance your smile without the need for more invasive procedures, such as braces. Additionally, they are long-lasting and can help fortify your teeth, particularly if you have chips or cracks. With porcelain veneers, you can enjoy a natural-looking, beautiful smile that you’ll be proud to show off.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
The cost of porcelain veneers varies depending on the number of veneers you need and the type of veneers you choose. However, many insurance plans offer coverage for a portion of the cost of veneers. Additionally, Westchester Smile Design offers Care Credit as a financing option. This third-party financing company offers low-interest or no-interest payment plans to help make cosmetic dental treatments like porcelain veneers more affordable.
