What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, porcelain covers that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to mask imperfections. They’re coated with a glaze so durable that it helps resist chipping and staining which can offer an added layer of protection for your grin. Plus, they’re customized to match the shade and shape of your natural teeth so that they look and feel lifelike.

Veneers can be used to address several minor aesthetic issues including:

  • Slightly worn down or misshapen teeth
  • Chips, cracks, or breaks
  • Stubborn stains or blemishes
  • Small gaps or spaces
  • Somewhat crooked teeth

The Process of Getting Veneers

Before you can be fitted with veneers, you must first have a consultation appointment with one of our experts. They’ll examine your mouth and learn about your medical history to verify whether this is the best option to help you meet your dental goals.

Then, we’ll remove a small layer of enamel from your teeth so that the veneers can line up properly against your gums without standing out. Because this layer doesn’t grow back, the change is considered irreversible. Most patients feel it’s worth it, however, because once the shells are in place they shield your grin from potential harm.

Next, our team will take digital images and impressions of your teeth to send to a dental laboratory to build your veneers. Once they arrive at our location, we’ll schedule an appointment for you to come in so we can place the final product.

The Benefits of Veneers

This treatment continues to gain popularity because of the many unique advantages it provides, including:

  • Veneers can last 15+ years if cared for properly.
  • Cleaning your veneers is as simple as brushing and flossing twice daily.
  • These shells can mask several different flaws to enhance your appearance while simultaneously protecting your teeth.
  • The porcelain material is more resistant to chips, breaks, and stains than your natural teeth.
  • Natural appearance. They’re built to match the color and shape of your grin so no one can tell the difference.

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

We’ll provide a detailed estimate of the anticipated cost for your veneers after your consultation. They often cost more initially than other cosmetic services, but you could save money in the long run because they’re more resistant to damage and can last much longer. That means they’re less likely to require expensive repairs or replacements.

Because veneers are not considered essential for your dental health, many insurance companies don’t cover the cost. We believe that your budget shouldn’t keep you from achieving the smile of your dreams, though, and so offer flexible financing through CareCredit. By partnering with this third party, you’re able to break up your payment into more manageable installments.
