What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers are a beautiful way to correct stained, chipped, or crooked teeth. By placing glass-like ceramic porcelain on the surface of teeth, Dr. Howard can provide patients with bright, straight, and natural looking smiles.
Porcelain veneers enable teeth to be rapidly and effectively improved, whereas orthodontics can take years for full results and dentures have limitations. But by enhancing the existing shape and color of your teeth, porcelain veneers can mean a desirable smile now.
Am I a candidate for porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are perfect for teeth that are too big or small, or have uneven surfaces. Dr. Howard continues to integrate the best practices of cosmetic dentistry to give you a durable, precise and healthy smile. Porcelain veneers may not be suitable for you if you have unhealthy teeth, weak teeth, do not have enough tooth enamel or if you grind your teeth.
How much do porcelain veneers cost?
The cost of porcelain veneers depends on the number of teeth being treated. When considering the cost of porcelain veneers, you must take into account their longevity and attractiveness. Porcelain veneers are long lasting alternatives to other treatments that cost less but must be repaired more often and lose their cosmetic appeal more quickly.
