Have you been hiding chips, cracks and gaps in your smile?
If so, porcelain veneers might be right for you. Durable and long-lasting, veneers are an ideal solution for anyone looking to regain confidence in their smile.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin, customized shells of porcelain that are adhered to the surface of the tooth to create a natural and flawless smile. Porcelain veneers require little to no anesthesia and are a fantastic alternative to crowns.
Why Porcelain Veneers?
The benefits of undergoing the porcelain veneer process are plentiful. A survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that a more aesthetically pleasing smile can help you appear more attractive, intelligent, and successful.
Veneers not only enhance your smile but also improve dental issues issues, such as:
- Worn enamel
- Bite alignment
- Chips and cracks
With proper care and regular dental visits, veneers last anywhere between 7 and 20 years.
Cost of Porcelain Veneers
Every patient is different, and every treatment plan is different, which means the total cost of veneers varies from case to case.
Factors that impact the overall cost include:
- Dental health
- Materials used
- Number of veneers needed
Porcelain veneers are an investment, not only in your smile but in yourself. With veneers, your smile doesn’t just look better – your overall confidence is higher.
Porcelain Veneers Process
1. Initial Consultation
Your initial consultation provides the opportunity to talk to your dentist about what your ideal smile looks like, find out which treatment options are best, and determine how long treatment will take. We’ll discuss whether porcelain veneers are for you and provide an exact treatment cost estimation.
2. Tooth Preparation
To prepare for porcelain veneers, we will take an impression of your teeth. We may also remove a small amount of enamel to prepare your tooth for treatment. Then, we’ll send the impressions to the lab, where your veneers will be crafted by hand.
3. Veneer Placement
When your custom-made veneers arrive, they are ready to be placed. Before placement, you will have the chance to review the shape, color, and fit of your new veneers. Keep in mind, porcelain veneers cannot be altered after placement.
4. Treatment Recovery
Once your treatment is complete, be sure to maintain your regular dental routine. Veneers are designed to look and feel natural, so you’ll want to care for them as if they were your natural teeth.
