Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers provide an excellent solution if you are looking to enhance your smile. They are a popular cosmetic treatment because of their overall effectiveness and ease of use.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells placed on the front surface of teeth to enhance their appearance. They can hide noticeable flaws and make your teeth look straight and even. Dental veneers are a great option if you have chipped, worn down, or stained teeth or if you have problems with crowding.

Depending on the style of veneers you choose, your teeth may be prepped by removing a small amount of enamel. The shade of veneers can be adjusted to match your tooth color, and they are applied with minimal discomfort. Dental veneers are strong and durable and can last for many years before they need replacement or repairs.

Each set of dental veneers is custom-designed to meet your specific needs so you can achieve the results you want.

  • What is the difference between porcelain veneers and composite veneers?

    There are two types of dental veneers: porcelain and composite.

    Composite veneers are made in-office and are less expensive and quicker to apply. They work well to cover up many aesthetic problems.

    Porcelain veneers are custom-made in a laboratory and last longer because of the stronger material. They provide a natural look and can fix larger cosmetic issues.

  • Veneers vs. crowns—what’s the difference?

    Dental veneers and crowns are two procedures that can improve the appearance of teeth by addressing issues such as chips, stains, discoloration, or crookedness. The main difference between them is that dental crowns cover the entire surface of the tooth, while veneers only cover the front portion.

    Crowns, which are about 2mm thick, provide extra support to damaged teeth, whereas veneers, which are about 1mm thick, are a less invasive procedure and require less removal of the original tooth structure. Both options have a similar cost, but their purposes and the amount of tooth structure they cover are different.

    Both veneers and crowns are excellent options for patients seeking a white, straight smile that looks and feels natural. If you’re interested in either procedure but are unsure which one is right for you, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation.

  • How much do dental veneers cost?

    Veneers are generally classified as cosmetic procedures and hence are not included in insurance coverage. The cost of veneers varies depending on the dentist you choose. On average, traditional dental veneers range between $925 to $2,500 per tooth, while no-prep dental veneers cost around $800 to $2,000 per tooth.

  • How long do dental veneers last?

    The lifespan of dental veneers depends on two factors: the material they’re made of and how well they’re taken care of. Composite veneers are expected to last between 5 and 10 years, while porcelain veneers can last for 10 to 20 years. To extend their durability, it’s crucial to take excellent care of them by brushing and flossing regularly, attending dental checkups, and avoiding extreme pressure on them.
