What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are tailor-made shells of porcelain that a dentist cements over the front of a prepared tooth to improve its appearance. Veneers porcelain hide stained, misshapen, chipped or fractured teeth. They offer a cosmetically enhanced appearance, plus they can also cover gaps between teeth.
What is the Average Porcelain Veneers Cost?
Our fees vary from patient to patient. Your total porcelain veneers cost is determined by on the type of veneers that you select and how many veneers you need. Please call our office for a consultation and our dentist can quote a price once he or she has examined your teeth and gums. Consider the cost an investment in yourself, since veneers increase your self-esteem.
What is the Difference Between Porcelain Veneers and Porcelain Crowns?
Veneers usually hide imperfections on an otherwise healthy tooth, while crowns cap a weak tooth that has a large cavity or had a root canal. Crowns cover all sides of a tooth, while veneers cover only the front of a tooth.
Can I See Before and After Pictures?
Naturally, we will let you see how veneers have helped our other patients with a flaw in one or more of their teeth have an attractive smile once again. You will notice the amazing difference, which you can expect to see yourself if you have veneers placed over teeth that you feel ruin your smile.
How Does the Dentist Prepare My Tooth for a Veneer?
The porcelain veneers procedure is quite simple compared to other cosmetic procedures. After deciding a veneer is the right choice, you will go to the dentist and have an impression made of your teeth for the dental lab, which makes the custom veneer. Our dentist will take a very small portion of the enamel off the front of your tooth to make room for the veneer. When your veneer is finished, our dentist cements it to your tooth and you are finished.
Is a Porcelain Veneer Permanent?
While porcelain teeth are a permanent restoration because they are cemented to your existing tooth, a porcelain veneer will not last forever. A veneer should last a decade or two if you are careful not to bite down on very hard objects. Porcelain is as strong as a natural tooth, but it can chip or crack just like your other teeth.
Why Should I Consider Lumineers®?
With Lumineers®, you can expect that these special, ultra-thin veneers will last for more than 20 years, as opposed to the 10 to 15 years expected of traditional porcelain veneers. Nevertheless, the main reason that many of our patients choose Lumineers is their thinness, which means that our dentist usually does not have to remove any of your tooth enamel to fit the veneer. Since our dentist does not have to remove any enamel, you won’t need to wear a temporary veneer in between appointments.
