Dr. Weinman Dispels Some of the Myths about Porcelain Veneers for Patients from Westfield and Beyond
October 11, 2013
When your smile is suffering from a number of imperfections, such as chips, cracks, or even gaps, it can seem like an exhausting process to go through multiple procedures in order to correct all of these problems. That’s why porcelain veneers have become such a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment! Painstakingly customized and crafted out of beautiful, natural looking dental porcelain, this transformative piece can give your smile a complete do-over, covering up all sorts of visual flaws that can hinder self-confidence with a brand-new, stunning look. However, our office has heard several myths about porcelain veneers over the years that may be holding some patients back from pursuing this treatment. Here in Westfield, Dr. David Weinman and his team want to be the first to assuage your fears and help you receive the dental care of your dreams! Here are just a few of the myth surrounding porcelain veneers and the truth behind them:
You have to cut down my whole tooth to complete the process!
This is a definite exaggeration. Your teeth will require some reshaping in order to create a true natural look – after all, the last think you want is for your new smile to look bulky! Still, the amount of tooth structure that has to be removed is not excessive, and many lab technicians can create veneers as thin as 2mm, or the width of a single contact lens.
They’re incredibly painful!
During the procedure, Dr. Weinman and his team will make sure you’re anesthetized fully so that there is no sensation at any point. The only sensitivity that should occur happens when you’re wearing the temporary veneers we’ll provide while your permanent ones are being made.
I don’t want them to be unnaturally white!
We’re happy to make them whatever color you want! While some patients enjoy a blazing white color, Dr. Weinman will be happy to assist you in picking a color that best fits your smile.
I can’t afford them!
Thankfully, we offer a variety of financial options, including extended payments. Your payments could even be less than $200 a month! This could help some patients who need some financial breathing room still achieve the smile of their dreams.
Contact our Westfield, NJ office today to schedule your appointment! Our team can’t wait to give you a reason to smile. We also serve the areas of Scotch Plains, Fanwood, Cranford, Mountainside, and beyond.
