Veneers, Pros and Cons

Veneers, Pros and Cons

Applying veneer (วีเนียร์, which is the term in Thai) closes gaps, covers chips, hides discolouration and provides a more balanced look; thereby making your smile look even, bright and beautiful.

Veneers are permanent and may not be for everyone; hence, it’s vital to weigh the pros and cons of veneers to know if they are worth it for you.


Gives Your Teeth a Natural look

The porcelain veneer nearly looks like tooth enamel and reflects light as natural teeth would.

Whiten Your Smile

 Veneers are primarily stain-resistant hence it hides discolouration, and you can do without further whitening.

Repairs Minor Cosmetic Issues

Some people may opt for other corrective treatments, but veneers applied to your natural tooth enamel hide any present orthodontic issues.

Durability and Longevity

A proper veneer can last for 10-20 years before replacements are required.

Fast Results

With veneers, you don’t need to worry about several dentist appointments; the results are prompt.


Huge Cost

The number of teeth being fixed, the dentist and location may determine the price, but generally, a single veneer can cost about $1,000 or $2,000. Since this is a cosmetic procedure, Veneer fixing is not usually incorporated by dental insurance programs since it is not a cosmetic procedure.

Susceptible to Damage

Proper and routine care of the teeth may help to avoid the damage. But breaking, detachment and chipping are all a possibility. Although they can be changed, the process must be renewed, making it costly.

Increased Sensitivity

Some enamel is chipped away to create space for veneers, hence your teeth could get increasingly sensitive to hot/cold drinks and foods. Although this is often temporary, and you may be given dental products to help strengthen the teeth’s enamel.
