Are you displeased with the appearance of your smile? Do you have smile flaws like discolored, worn down, chipped, or gapped teeth? Dental veneers in Beverly Hills, California, may be for you! Dental veneers are thin shells that are custom made from tooth-colored materials to cover the front of your teeth and improve their appearance. Before you decide whether or not to have veneers placed by Dr. Philippe Athuil, consider the following pros and cons:

Pros:
Dental veneers are made to look like your natural teeth. Dental veneers can restore the beauty of worn down or chipped teeth. Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that are slightly crooked or irregularly shaped. Dental veneers can close small gaps in your smile. A shade of veneer can be chosen that makes your teeth look whiter. Dental veneers made from porcelain are stain resistant, so they will keep their beautiful color. Dental veneers are a more conservative approach to altering the appearance of your teeth than dental crowns. They don’t require as much tooth alteration before placement and they are still stronger and more aesthetic.

Cons:
Having dental veneers placed is not reversible, as the tooth enamel is shaped before placement. Your dental veneers may not exactly match the shade of your natural teeth. Also, you should be aware that once your veneers are in place, their color cannot be altered.
