According to a recent survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), dentists are performing nearly 600,000 porcelain veneer procedures every year, making it the third most popular cosmetic dentistry enhancement provided by dentists. Dr. Michael J. Wei, a cosmetic dentist in Manhattan New York, says that many patients are seeking porcelain veneers to enhance their smiles. Dr. Wei also adds that the application of dental tooth veneers can also include the added benefit of providing fuller, more attractive lips while reducing facial wrinkles.
At his cosmetic dentistry practice in Manhattan NY City, Dr. Michael Wei says the use of porcelain dental veneers is growing significantly in popularity over the past few years as more and more patients are seeing the benefits that an improved smile can offer in both appearance and confidence. The American Association of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) recently reported that the use of porcelain tooth veneers has increased by 250% in the last five years.
Dr. Wei says that a little-known added benefit of the procedure is that they can be used as a way to enhance lip fullness and plumpness. He says porcelain veneers can help increase confidence and improve one’s smile by augmenting natural lip shape. “Our patients love their porcelain veneers because they provide a complete ‘smile makeover’ for a dramatic improvement in their appearance,” stated Dr. Wei, a Cosmetic Dentist in Manhattan. “Porcelain veneers are also an effective procedure for producing fuller lips and reducing facial wrinkles for improving the overall appearance of the whole face.”
Porcelain veneers are thin “veneers” of tooth-colored porcelain which are adhered to the surface of teeth and used for repairing damaged, mis-aligned or discolored teeth. Tooth veneers are a natural-looking and permanent treatment for repairing teeth and enhancing one’s smile. Plus, dental veneers are now being used to add some thickness to the tooth and push out the lip to provide a fuller, more rounded shape which can also reduce or even eliminate facial wrinkles around the mouth. “With veneers, patients can permanently improve their teeth and smile, while also enhancing their lips and removing or reducing wrinkles without having to endure plastic surgery, dermal fillers or frequent injections,” stated Dr. Wei.
