Are Porcelain Veneers A Good Choice For Me?

Porcelain veneers are a wonderful investment for the right candidate. However, they are not a cure-all. If you would benefit more from a different dental treatment, Dr. Montane will not hesitate to let you know. Generally, the best candidates for porcelain veneers:

  • Have minor cosmetic imperfections
  • Have existing teeth that are strong enough to support the veneer
  • Understand that porcelain veneers are a permanent solution
  • Have only minor crookedness - majorly crooked teeth may require orthodontics

In some cases, porcelain veneers may be recommended in addition to other restorative dental work to make sure your smile is both healthy and attractive. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution in Dr. Montane's office - each patient gets thoughtful and individual treatment recommendations to ensure the best results possible.

Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?

If you decide to move forward with porcelain veneers following Dr. Montane's recommendation, you may be worried about their longevity and comfort. Luckily, porcelain veneers last for a very long time as long as you maintain good oral hygiene habits. Veneers are also incredibly easy to care for. As long as you treat them well (no using them as tools or biting on sticky foods like toffee with them) and brush and floss regularly, there should be no problem.

Although the upfront costs of porcelain veneers may seem expensive, when you think about how long they last and how well they can fix certain cosmetic issues, they are worth the cost the majority of the time.

Porcelain veneers are:

  • Durable
  • Long-lasting
  • Natural-looking
  • Stain-resistant
  • Customizable
  • Versatile

The process of placing porcelain veneers is also painless, and since the veneers are so thin, they are comfortable in the mouth.

If you are concerned about the costs of porcelain veneers, Dr. Montane offers dental financing plans that you can take advantage of. We want you to be able to have the best, most advanced treatments so that you will love your smile, and we will help you to afford them as best we can.
