What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-sized shells placed over the fronts of teeth. Once a dentist properly sets them, they can hide nearly any smile flaw – stains, chips, cracks, misalignments, etc. The shells then blends seamlessly with your other, adjacent teeth.

The amazing looks veneers produce come from their high-grade materials. Since each shell is made from either porcelain or ceramic, dentists customize them to match a tooth’s color, size, and shape. That means the final veneers look natural and “fit in” with their surroundings. Better yet, they have high stain resistance and durability – qualities that help them last a while.

The Process of Getting Veneers

A veneer treatment takes at least two appointments. The first of these sessions is a consultation that can double as “prep work,” while the second places your final veneers.

You’ll discuss treatment with our dentists at the start of the first visit, giving us an idea of what you want from veneers. This talk also lets us learn about your oral health, medical history, etc. By using these details and the results of your oral exam, we can confirm whether you qualify for care.

If we approve, our team will prep your teeth for them during the second half of the consultation. This process will remove a bit of enamel from the to-be-treated teeth. Afterward, our team will take an impression of the same teeth and send it to a lab that crafts your shells. Since this crafting work takes a few weeks, you’ll wear temporary veneers in the meantime.

When the final veneers are ready, you’ll return to our office for the final placement. We’ll then set the shells on your teeth, and you enjoy your beautiful smile!

The Benefits of Veneers

Getting veneers means you’ll enjoy many upsides, including the following:

  • A Beautiful Smile – Veneers use high-quality porcelain or ceramic, so they match your surrounding teeth. They’ll blend in so seamlessly that friends or family won’t even notice them.
  • Versatile Help – Veneers can fix a varied range of smile flaws, including chips, cracks, fractures, and misalignments.
  • Stain-Resistance – The materials used for veneers are highly stain-resistant, so the shells don’t discolor much from meals.
  • Long-Lasting Results – An average veneer can last roughly 15 years, while a well-maintained one can have a lifespan of 30+ years.

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

Given their amazing qualities, you may fear veneers would be too expensive for you. That’s a fair concern – the shells won’t help if getting them “breaks the bank.” Still, the cost of veneers varies from patient to patient. You’ll need to consult our dentists for a precise estimate. Once you have, our team will work tirelessly to make your veneers more affordable. We’ll even walk you through your treatment’s pricing factors and our office’s payment options.
