the pros & cons of getting veneers

We may be biased at smilogy, but we love doing veneers for our eligible customers.

Restore and improve your smile in seconds with the help of veneers! Full disclosure, it’ll take more than a few, but the process is still incredibly simple.

Whether you want to change the colour, size, shape, or alignment of your smile, you may be able to do this with veneers.

However, as with any investment, there are advantages and disadvantages which may apply if you’re not quite the right candidate.

We may be biased at smilogy, but we love doing veneers for our eligible customers. This is because they’re:

  • Realistic – using top technology, we can keep them natural in appearance
  • Durable – composite veneers last up to 7 years, while porcelain can last around 15
  • Great for your confidence and self-esteem
  • Thin, so they don’t need as much prep work as crowns
  • Easily matched to your ideal shade


In addition, porcelain veneers specifically are:

  • Stain resistant – red wine and coffee are water off a porcelain veneer’s back!
  • Versatile in colour, to mask discolouration underneath

here’s why they’re not right for everyone

As with any kind of cosmetic dentistry, veneers are not one-size-fits-all. While they’re super natural and look fantastic on the right people, some customers say:

  • They want a non-artificial solution
  • It’s too permanent – there’s no going back
  • They’re afraid their teeth will be sensitive because enamel is removed
  • They can’t afford it

Unfortunately, some people simply aren’t candidates – but smilogy can discuss that with you after a 3D scan to figure your smile out.

If you have decay or disease or certain other conditions, you might have to consider other options with us.
