Top Myths About Porcelain Veneers

Jan 25, 2018

Have you thought about getting porcelain veneers, but are worried people could tell they’re fake or that they might be too fragile?

You’re not alone. Those are just a couple of the common misconceptions about dental veneers. Don’t let these common myths keep you from having the smile you’ve always wanted.

Myth 1: Veneers aren’t for me.

Many people assume veneers are only for aesthetics, but they can also be used to fix broken or misshaped teeth. Dr. Korous will review all your options with you and help you decide on the right treatment.

Myth 2: People can tell they’re fake.

Our porcelain veneers are made of high-quality material that is designed to reflect light in the same way as your natural teeth. Your veneers will be custom made at a lab to Dr. Korous’ exact specifications to ensure a perfect fit and match. Check out some of our recent Millennium Smiles patients below to see how natural veneers look:

Myth 3: The procedure will hurt.

As with any procedure, Dr. Korous takes the upmost care to make sure you’re comfortable. You’ll be given a local anesthetic so you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

Myth 4: They will break or chip easily.

Most people associate porcelain with antique vases or fine china, but the porcelain used in dental veneers is designed to resist chipping, breaking and staining. With proper care, you can expect your veneers to last 15 years or more.

Dr. Korous has helped hundreds of patients smile confidently again with porcelain veneers. Contact our Frisco office today to schedule your consultation.
