Paramus Dentist Explains Pros and Cons of Porcelain Veneers
Many NJ residents seeking a more beautiful smile have turned to one of the area’s experts in smile makeovers, Dr Sultan Sherzoy in Bergen County. Dr Sherzoy is a talented cosmetic dentist who has been helping patients achieve their ideal smile for nearly 20 years. According to Dr Sherzoy, the most in-demand cosmetic procedure for smile makeovers is porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are a thin layer of a restorative ceramic material that is placed over a tooth’s surface to restore its natural shape or enhance its appearance. Porcelain is a ceramic that has many similar properties to the teeth’s natural covering, enamel. Because of this, porcelain veneers appears very natural and realistic, making them one of the most popular options for enhancing one’s smile.
According to Dr Sherzoy, many of his Paramus patients come to him with concerns over their smile and how it is affecting their professional advancement. “People believe an unattractive smile can hinder their success, so veneers are not strictly a cosmetic procedure for self enhancement. Most patients believe they could lead a more successful life if they had a nicer smile.”
Dr Sherzoy cautions that veneers are not the answer for everyone, and that there are many pros and cons to be considered. Dr Sherzoy lists the pros of veneers as:
Stain Resistance: Porcelain veneers are quite resistant to permanent stains. Patients who drink coffee, tea or wine don’t have to worry about staining their teeth.
Durability: Porcelain veneers are relatively long lasting – up to 15 years.
Color Selection : Veneers come in a wide selection of colors to help those whose teeth have become discolored or darkened over time.
Easy to Shape : Compared to crowns, porcelain veneers do not require extensive shaping prior to the procedure.
Improves Appearance: Porcelain veneers can help improve teeth that are crooked, discolored, or have small gaps between them.
On the contrast, there are cons to Porcelain Veneers which include:
They are permanent: Once veneers are placed over a tooth’s surface, there is no turning back. Patients need to be 100% sure that this is what they want.
Repairs: Although veneers are durable, they are not resistant to chips or breaks. However, repairing veneers is quick and simple.
Tooth sensitivity: Since the process requires the removal of enamel, teeth may become temporarily sensitive to hot and cold foods and beverages.
Not everyone is a candidate: Those who suffer from tooth decay or periodontal disease may not be candidates for the procedure.
“The bottom line,” says Dr Sherzoy, “is that people need to research their options and discover what is the best solution that fits their needs. There are many methods to improving the appearance of one’s smile.”
