Benefits and Limitations

Dr. Jerry Strauss of Aesthetic Dental Care discusses the advantages of porcelain veneers and what limitations they may pose for certain patients.

Totowa, NJ – As part of his comprehensive product offering, Dr. Jerry Strauss, a cosmetic dentist in Totowa, offers porcelain veneers to patients wishing to correct aesthetic smile imperfections. He says the cosmetic restoration can correct a wide variety of concerns patients have, helping them achieve their dream smile. At Aesthetic Dental Care, Dr. Strauss conducts a consultation process to determine whether patients are ideal candidates for porcelain veneers or if an alternative solution is more appropriate for their needs.

According to the Totowa dentist, porcelain veneers hold numerous advantages for those wishing to enhance their smile. He says they can improve the appearance of stains, chips, cracks, misalignment, and other imperfections in the teeth. Additionally, Dr. Strauss explains patients of his practice receive custom-made restorations with details like color, shape, and size all tailored to the individual for the most natural-looking results. While porcelain veneers can last 10 years or longer, he says that determining how long porcelain veneers will last ultimately depends on the oral care and maintenance people practice on a regular basis.

Although porcelain veneers can be a highly beneficial solution for many people, Dr. Strauss explains there are some limitations to the restoration, and certain individuals do not make good candidates. He emphasizes that patients should only receive porcelain veneers if they have generally good oral health to begin with. Dr. Strauss also notes that patients with more severe misalignment may benefit more from an option like Invisalign®, and those with teeth that have been damaged beyond simple chips or cracks may be better candidates for a solution like porcelain crowns.

For those interested in enhancing their smile aesthetic, Dr. Strauss recommends scheduling a consultation with an experienced dental professional to learn which dental procedure can help them reach their ideal outcome.
