Porcelain Veneers – Procedure, benefits, and other relevant things

One of the most significant advantages of our business in Hawaii is that we are offering a broad range of dental services. We at Dentist Kanehoe try to implement all of the latest procedures because we want to provide the best possible service to every patient that comes for our help. Now, dental veneers are one of the most recent implementations, and we are known as one of only a few dental businesses in Hawaii that offers it.

Why would anyone go for dental veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom-made for your teeth. They are used to cover the frontal surface of your teeth with the goal of improving the appearance of the same. Now, many people are purists, and thus they are looking to avoid any modification that isn’t necessary. However, dental veneers are a necessity if you are looking to protect your teeth from further damages and improve your appearance, and everyone knows how important the appearance is in this day and age.

Several reasons for the use of porcelain veneers exist, and one of them is the discoloration that appears on the teeth over the course of time. The stain may arise due to root canal treatments, drugs, a high concentration of fluoride, tobacco, alcohol and so on. Other reasons for the use of porcelain veneers include chipped and broken teeth, teeth that are worn down, misalignment, irregular teeth shapes and so on.

Advantages and disadvantages of porcelain veneers

Every patient that comes to our building at 2105 Randall Drive, Honolulu 96815, Hawaii ask about certain services like porcelain veneers and all of the pros and cons of the same. And we are happy to share that with our clients as it makes it easy for them to make the final decision on whether to do it or not.

You and your dentist can choose the shade of the veneer which can turn yellow and brown teeth into a perfect white, or something similar, depending on your choice.

One of the biggest cons of this treatment is that it isn’t reversible. You also have to pay more than you do for composite resin bonding and porcelain veneers aren’t repairable. Another thing that can happen is the dislodgement of surfaces if you apply too much pressure on them which means no chewing on ice, nails, pencils and other similarly hard things.

Porcelain veneers – are they good for you?

The price of this treatment is high which poses a question of whether you should opt for it or not. The price shouldn’t be something that will determine whether you will go for it or not. Porcelain veneers require care, and thus your decision should be affected by that. If you can’t give up on chewing nails and something similar then porcelain veneers aren’t for you.
