Porcelain veneers are one of the best investments you can make in the appearance of your smile. This cosmetic dentistry procedure can whiten teeth, repair damaged teeth, build up teeth that are congenitally small, and overall improve the look of your smile. The only drawback of porcelain veneers is that if you need several of them to achieve the results you’re looking for, they can be expensive.
Some people might think it’s a good idea to get veneers one at a time to make them more affordable. Although this might seem like a brilliant solution, it’s far better to seek financing or other payment solutions so you can get your porcelain veneers all at once.
We can do a good job of matching your porcelain veneers to your teeth’s natural color. We typically recommend that you get your teeth whitened before getting veneers so that we can match your veneers to your whitened teeth.
But there’s a limitation to this. Your natural teeth will get stained again, but your porcelain veneers won’t. This can make your veneers stand out when you might rather keep them concealed.
An Even Keel
Another problem with doing just one veneer at a time is that if you’re trying to build up small teeth or those worn down, When we place one veneer, then, the veneer will be taller than your natural teeth, which will put your veneer under too much pressure, increasing the risk of failure, especially if you have TMJ or bruxism, which can affect your bite.
Good Veneers Make Good Neighbors
Porcelain veneers are designed to work together, just like your natural teeth. In order to make sure they can do this properly, we need to design, manufacture, and place them at the same time. This ensures that the veneers don’t crowd each other, which would lead to uneven sizing of veneers or crooked teeth. It could also lead to gaps left in your smile.
