Dental veneers aka the magic shells can be used to change the shade or the color and the shape of the teeth as per your choice. Also, these can treat minor abnormalities like the marginal gap between the teeth, stained teeth which refuse to whiten with other methods, slightly crooked teeth, teeth which have some surface cracks, or which have little chipping on the edges. As far as the procedure is concerned, we remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth to make space for the veneers. For people wondering, how Tom Cruise has such perfect dazzling white teeth, now you know the answer. Below are the few pros and cons to help you make a more informed decision.
It can whiten your teeth irrespective of how stained they are. They take care of your tea, coffee, and wine stains, and make your teeth whiter than ever.

It is an irreversible change: We need to remove a thin layer of your tooth to make space for the veneers. And this is a permanent alteration, which means you will never be able to go back to your original looks if you do not like your veneers, or if you damage them due to any trauma or mishap per se. For the very same reason, I recommend veneers to my patients only if they absolutely need it.
Veneers are expensive: Veneers can be quite expensive, and a lot of dental insurances do not cover cosmetic procedures, which means you might have to make the complete payment yourself. For the exact pricing and insurance benefits, you will have to check it with your dentist, it varies from policy to policy.
Post-treatment sensitivity: Some people experience mild sensitivity after the veneers are placed. It usually goes away within a week. So if you’re planning to get them done, you might want to wait for the right time wherein you can deal with this discomfort.
