Getting permanent dental veneers isn’t a decision you should take lightly. It’s a big commitment and is one of the more costly cosmetic dental procedures. The great thing about veneers is that they can correct quite a few issues with your teeth, including gaps, broken teeth, and stained teeth. If you’re still trying to decide, temporary clip-in veneers are an easy way to help see if the permanent version might be the right choice for your smile. Here’s what you should know.
What are clip-in Veneers?
Veneers are used to cover your existing teeth and improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile if you have problems like missing and broken teeth, discoloured, yellowing or stained teeth, and other imperfections. Each veneer is created specifically for your teeth, so they are customised, based on the needs of your smile. With traditional veneers, your teeth are reshaped and filed in preparation. With temporary veneers, there is no dental procedure required and they simply snap on over your existing teeth, instantly changing the look and feel of your smile.
Concerns with Veneers
You’re right to pay attention to potential concerns that go along with having permanent veneers. You can’t make an informed decision if you don’t know everything about them. With traditional veneers, there’s always the risk of damage to your existing teeth, as well as the ongoing maintenance / replacement required. Permanent veneers can’t be whitened and don’t always look natural. At the same time, they are expensive so there’s a definite investment involved. On the other hand, temporary clip-in veneers can achieve the look you want, without the potential risks that go along with going the usual route.
Will I Regret Getting Veneers?
Now that you know a little bit more about both permanent and clip-in veneers, you can decide if either of them are right for you and your smile. For most people, improving smile issues with veneers is well worth the time and expense involved. In fact, many people report that their only regret is that they waited so long to get started. Being happy with your smile can sometimes even help to build confidence, self-esteem and your entire life. While there are certainly some things to consider, for many people there are no regrets after getting veneers.
If you’re still undecided about getting permanent veneers, the temporary option of clip-in veneers could be a great way to give them a test drive and see if you like the look and feel. They’re also more affordable and so easy to wear. You won’t be sorry!
