Do Veneers Affect Speech or Cause a Lisp?

Posted .

For years, porcelain veneers have been a popular way for dental patients to achieve beautiful, white smiles. Porcelain veneers are tiny shells of porcelain that are placed on the front surfaces of your teeth. Here at Costa Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we have noticed that some patients wonder whether veneers affect their speech or cause a lisp.

The truth is that when porcelain veneers are placed properly, they should not affect your tongue. By trusting a skilled cosmetic dentist with your porcelain veneers, you can ensure that they do not affect the way you speak. Skilled cosmetic dentists know exactly how to place porcelain veneers in a way that they will not agitate or affect your tongue.

With properly fitted porcelain veneers, you can enjoy an attractive smile that is resistant to stains from coffee, wine, and even cigarette smoke. If you brush and floss your veneers every day and visit the dentist for regular dental exams and cleanings, you can expect them to last for decades.

The dentists at Costa Family & Cosmetic Dentistry are highly skilled at placing porcelain veneers. Once we place your veneers, you don’t have to worry about talking strangely or anyone knowing you have them. We strategically place them in a way that allows you to conceal your flaws and achieve the natural-looking, moviestar smile you’ve been longing for.
