Dr. Michael Kosdon explores the benefits and costs of using porcelain veneers as an effective cosmetic dentistry treatment to enhance one’s smile.
BEVERLY HILLS, CA — Dr. Michael Kosdon frequently uses porcelain veneers at his Beverly Hills cosmetic dentistry practice to help his patients achieve a stunning smile. Porcelain veneers, Dr. Kosdon describes, are ultra-thin, tooth-colored shells designed to cover the front side of a tooth. Dentists can customize porcelain veneers for each patient to ensure an exact fit once it is secured onto the tooth with a strong cement, he says. The polished porcelain has a natural appearance and the dentist can tint it to match the color of the patient’s surrounding teeth, notes Dr. Kosdon. He says the cosmetic dental procedure is a popular choice for many patients who want to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of their teeth. Recently, the Beverly Hills dentist shared his insight on the benefits and cost associated with using porcelain veneers for smile restorations.
Patients are often considered potential candidates for porcelain veneers if they would like to repair chips, cracks, discolorations, gaps, and minor misalignments, explains Dr. Kosdon. In addition to dramatically improving these perceived imperfections in a person’s smile, he says other advantages of porcelain veneers can include:
- The porcelain material is stain-resistant and designed to match the color of natural teeth
- They can be easily maintained with brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups
- They can help protect and strengthen the natural teeth underneath
- They can provide long-lasting results
Many factors come into play when determining the cost of porcelain veneers, Dr. Kosdon shares. The price for the treatment varies depending on the patient’s specific dental needs, the number of porcelain veneers used, and the individual’s dental insurance coverage. He says patients should talk with their dentist about their financing options so they can develop a convenient payment plan.
Whether a patient has cracks in their teeth, deep discoloration that cannot be corrected with teeth whitening, or another cosmetic concern about their teeth, Dr. Kosdon advises them to seek the expertise of an experienced cosmetic dentist to learn if porcelain veneers may be able to help them enhance their smile.
