4 Facts You May Not Know about Porcelain Veneers

For those looking to attain a dazzling, picture-perfect smile, porcelain veneers are an optimal option. Veneers are customized to give you a one-of-a-kind smile that look like your natural teeth. If you are considering porcelain veneers, contact Orange County cosmetic dentist Dr. Norman Huefner at (949) 495-6322  to schedule a consultation.

When considering getting veneers, it is important to know the advantages and disadvantages, as the procedure is typically a permanent one. Here are four lesser known facts about veneers that you may not know:

  • They might not last a lifetime – In general, veneers have a life expectancy like any other restoration procedure with the average being 10-15 years. It is crucial to take care of your veneers as you would your normal teeth
  • You will need to be cautious about what you eat – Porcelain may be susceptible to cracking or chipping if you bite into something hard such as an apple
  • They may change the shape of your face – Veneers can widen a person’s smile and accentuate the cheekbones and lips
  • They can help eliminate tooth sensitivity – If your original teeth have lost enamel and you experience sensitivity, veneers can actually make your teeth stronger which will help to eliminate sensitivity

During your consultation, Dr. Huefner can go over any advantages or disadvantages that you may be concerned about. If you are living in or around the Orange County, California area, contact us at (949) 495-6322 to schedule your cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Norman Huefner today!
