Alternatives to Dental Veneers: Amazing Options Available at Your Helm

  • Written by

Veneers solve various dental complications, but they have drawbacks, too, and not everyone is cut out for veneers. Dental veneer will offer you a permanent solution, and many people don’t like this because it means that you won’t be able to reverse the treatment. There are loads of other treatments available that can give you near-perfect results bar this permanency.

Before choosing veneers, understand that they cannot be undone. So, it will be better if you consider the minimally invasive techniques first. And these veneers will also require some preparation of the tooth - even the no-prep veneers too! 


So, if you are looking for something temporary and less destructive, then consider these other alternatives before going for dental veneers:

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a simple procedure that dentists use all over the globe to correct oral imperfections. Dentists commonly use teeth bonding to repair cracks and chips and use a similar material to fill cavities. Durable resin is used in this procedure, and hence, it will have that natural hue of your original tooth. Tooth bonding and veneers will work precisely, prevent any decay or infection, and repair cracked teeth.

Teeth whitening

For people who crave a prettier and brighter smile, teeth whitening is known for its encouraging results! This treatment can remove some of the sturdiest stains and can lift your teeth to seven shades whiter in just one visit! 

However, do not expect too much from the treatment as not all colour issues can be treated with the help of teeth whitening. But it has given encouraging results throughout the years. This treatment also can fight and eliminate stubborn stains of ‘tetracycline’ over several months. The evenness cannot be achieved with the help of porcelain veneers. 


If you are craving a straighter smile, then you can choose to go with Invisalign. It will not only enhance the appearance of your smile and avert tooth decay in the future. These braces are invisible aligners used to repair dental complications such as crossbites, overbites, and many more.

If you are getting Invisalign, you will need to wear them for almost a year to get a straighter smile.

Cosmetic contouring/reshaping

Genetics or an accident can force you towards cosmetic reshaping. Many patients will lean towards contouring treatment as it isn’t time-consuming and can save lots of your money. They are beneficial to your health and help you achieve the aesthetic accuracy you are looking for. 

With the help of reshaping, dentists can remove the culprits of decay like plaque and tartar. However, veneers can perform reshaping, but that will be a permanent solution and can’t be undone. 

Final Words

Although dental veneers are one of the most effective cosmetic dentistry treatments, they are not faultless. So, before zeroing down on any treatment, evaluate other options and consult your dentist for choosing the perfect selection.
