There are many ways to ensure a perfect smile and you might have already tried some of them; from buying an expensive toothbrush and toothpaste to home remedies and tooth whitening kits. The sad news is none of these solutions work miracle. Also, they might just whiten your teeth but they won’t change their shape. The best way to have a pearl-like smile is a cosmetic dental procedure called Hollywood Smile, which is done using dental veneers.

Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or composites in the shape and color of your teeth. Veneers are cemented to the front surface of the natural teeth. As they make your teeth look even and white, their main purpose is improving physical appearance.

Like any other procedure, you need to weigh the benefits and disadvantages of dental veneers before making a decision. Stay with us and read the main advantages and disadvantages of dental veneers.

Pros of dental veneers

Whitening your smile

The most obvious result of dental veneers is white teeth. All of those yellowish and brownish stains that you’ve got from years of drinking coffee and smoking will be disappeared overnight! And the good news is the veneers are highly stain-resistant and they stay white for good! Such a good reason to smile all day!

Natural-looking teeth

Don’t worry about looking different after getting dental veneers. Your dentist will choose the type of veneers that matches your natural enamel. As a result, it looks like you have an updated version of your own teeth and they seem totally natural.close-up photo of a smile of a man with white teeth

Fixing minor cosmetic problems

Veneers can help you to camouflage the minor problems like tooth gaps (diastema) and crooked teeth. After applying dental veneers, these problems still exist, but as they are underneath the veneers, nobody can see them.

Replacing damaged enamel

Although it seems rock hard, enamel can be worn down by different causes. Highly acidic foods and drinks, stomach acid reflux, and overbrushing can damage the strong enamel. Unfortunately, the enamel is naturally irreplaceable. But, dental veneers can be an ideal replacement for enamel abrasion or erosion.

Remember, veneers are not always the best treatment for dental problems. Thus, it is better to consult your dentist and ask your questions. You can get a free consultation here from AriaMedTour consultants.

No recovery after veneers

Fortunately, this process does not require any special recovery period. All you have to do is the normal daily dental routines like flossing and brushing your teeth.female dentists checking teeth of a woman while she is looking in the mirror

Cons of dental veneers

High cost

Depending on the country and city where you live, dental veneering costs vary, normally with an average of 1,313$ per tooth. It can cost you an arm and leg to have a Hollywood Smile. Luckily, we have a special offer for you. You can get dental veneers in Iran starting with only $150 per tooth.

Irreversible process

For applying veneers, your dentist will remove an outer layer of the enamel and attach the veneers directly to the layers beneath. As you know, enamel won’t grow again. Thus, by undergoing this procedure, you should accept veneers as your new guests for the rest of your life.

Increased sensibility

An increased tooth sensibility is a common side effect of dental veneers. But normally, sensitivity to hot and cold drinks won’t last more than a few days. Luckily, there are ways to reduce the uncomfortable feeling.

Last word

Although there are some drawbacks to dental veneers, certainly the pros overweigh the cons. If you’ve made up your mind about having a beautiful smile, you can also read more about things you should know before getting dental veneers.
