Many of our patients have relatively good oral health, but they are dissatisfied with the way their teeth look. Is that true of you? Our team will be happy to help you via our menu of cosmetic dentistry services. One such service is porcelain veneers. This popular treatment is able to disguise many types of aesthetic imperfections in teeth and help patients enjoy all the benefits of a beautiful smile.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin pieces of dental porcelain that we attach to the fronts of patients’ teeth. Their purpose is to hide the flaws in the teeth and produce a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Some of the cosmetic issues that veneers can correct include:
Some of the most outstanding benefits of porcelain veneers include:
The process for placing porcelain veneers usually requires at least two appointments. At the first appointment, we prepare the teeth by removing a bit of enamel from them. This step is necessary to ensure that the veneers do not look bulky or unnatural. Then, we take impressions of the teeth and provide you with temporary veneers.
You will wear the temporary veneers while a dental laboratory uses the impressions, along with detailed design notes from your dentist, to fabricate your permanent veneers. When your permanent veneers are ready, you will return to our office for your second appointment. We will verify their fit before we attach them to your teeth.
The cost of your porcelain veneers will depend largely on how many of them you wish to receive. Some patients want to disguise just one or two teeth, while others wish for a total smile transformation. Also, keep in mind that in some cases, patients must undergo preliminary treatment before they receive veneers, which can add to the total cost of your cosmetic dentistry journey. During your consultation, we will provide you with an estimate for the price of your veneers. We will also help you explore financing options if you would like to pay for your treatment over time.
