Veneers-See Your Perfect Smile Before Treatment
Veneers are an excellent option for patients seeking a straighter, whiter smile.
Improvements in dental materials and technology allow you to see and approve your beautiful new smile before treatment even begins, eliminating any uncertainty. The actual procedure requires minimal reduction of natural tooth structure and is long-lasting. With proper homecare and regular professional checkups, your new veneers could last a lifetime.
Veneer failures are becoming less common. The two main issues that still account for most failures are tooth decay on the natural tooth structure supporting the veneer and porcelain chipping in patients that clench or grind. A custom night guard worn while sleeping eliminates porcelain chipping due to grinding.
These rare problems can often be resolved with simple smoothing or a "patch" filling. If the damage is more extensive and a veneer requires replacement, only the single veneer often needs to be replaced.
The veneer process includes 4 steps: An initial consultation and the taking of the "Before" picture; A second consultation to review and approve your "After" picture; The actual treatment appointment; And the delivery of the final veneers.
Veneers are comparable in cost to crowns. As an elective procedure, traditional dental insurance usually does not help with the cost. At your initial consultation visit, your custom treatment plan will be created and all costs will be communicated prior to any work being done – no surprises.
