What Are The Pros and Cons of Porcelain Veneers?
July 29, 2015
The appearance of your teeth is vitally important for a confident smile. Most people who don’t have the nicest of smiles tend to cover their teeth when they talk or flat-out refuse to smile. Your teeth are a terrible thing to waste, especially when you consider how often others see them. Anytime you open your mouth to speak, eat, yawn, sneeze or burp (sorry, but it’s true), your teeth are on display. Anything less than a beautiful smile can leave your self-confidence reeling. If you thought celebrities were the only ones who could attain beautiful smiles through the use of porcelain veneers, think again! Though porcelain veneers can freshen up your smile in a major way, there are some cons associated with this procedure. Our Putnam, CT office wants you to know the advantages and disadvantages of porcelain veneers so you can be armed with the appropriate information before choosing your treatment. For dental veneers, Putnam residents put their trust in our team to deliver quality results.

The Cosmetic Dentistry You Need
Drs. McGinn offer several cosmetic dentistry services. They will consult with you and examine your oral health to determine which option is best suited to your needs. Their services include:
If your smile has become discolored due to staining or as a result of the natural aging process, then you might want to consider teeth whitening. Drs. McGinn offer two kinds of at-home teeth whitening. The first is the familiar Crest White Strips. With the other option, you’ll use the custom-fitted trays and professional strength whitening gel we supply. Either choice will give you a whiter smile in about two weeks.
Cosmetic Bonding and Shaping
For a smile that is marred by teeth that are chipped, slightly cracked, or misaligned, cosmetic bonding and shaping may be the solution. In this case, the doctor molds a tooth-colored composite resin over the existing tooth and shapes it to complete your smile naturally. Cosmetic bonding and shaping is usually a one-appointment process to repair a damaged smile.
For more severely damaged smiles, there are porcelain veneers. These dental wonders are micro-thin sheets of dental porcelain that are bonded to the teeth to conceal flaws. The veneers are fabricated in a cosmetic dentistry lab to our exacting specifications, so you can be certain that yours will look and feel like your natural teeth.
