According to a survey commissioned by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), dentists perform over 599,000 porcelain veneer procedures each year, making it the third most performed cosmetic enhancement provided by dental practices. Dr. Michael Kosdon, a cosmetic dentist in New York, says that while many patients seek porcelain veneers to enhance their dental structure and smile, application of dental veneers can also enhance the fullness of one’s lips.
At his center for cosmetic dentistry in New York, Dr. Michael Kosdon says porcelain dental veneers have grown significantly in popularity over the past few years as more and more patients begin to see the benefits that an improved smile can offer to both confidence and appearance. While the American Association of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) reports that porcelain veneers procedures have increased by 250% in the past five years, Dr. Kosdon says patients have only recently begun to seek the procedure at his practice 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. “Dental veneers are a very common cosmetic dentistry procedure in our office, but only recently have patients discovered what veneers can do to produce fuller lips, reduce wrinkles, and improve the appearance of the entire face.”
Performed by adhering a thin, wafer-like strip of porcelain to the surface of teeth, Dr. Kosdon says the added thickness of the veneers pushes out one’s natural lip curves to create a more rounded, ample shape. With a dental procedure like porcelain veneers in New York City, he adds that patients can experience plump, luscious lips without having to undergo plastic surgical procedures or dermal fillers. “Dental veneers can improve the look of the smile and the entire face, and are permanent unlike dermal fillers. With veneers, patients can permanently enhance their lips and remove or reduce wrinkles in the corner of their mouth without having to endure frequent injections.”
As with any procedure, Dr. Kosdon says he recommends consulting with an experienced and dedicated cosmetic dentist before proceeding with any cosmetic enhancement. However, he adds that through the skilled hands of a qualified dentist, patients can achieve full, natural lips to complement their overall appearance.
