What are Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, durable sheaths that can be cemented onto the visible surface of individual teeth to improve their appearances by erasing imperfections. They can be made from a variety of materials, including composite, ceramic, and porcelain, depending on your aesthetic goals, budget, and ideal treatment timeline.

The Process of Getting Veneers

The dental veneer procedure typically takes place over the course of at least two visits to our office. First, you’ll visit Dr. R for a consultation. This appointment will include a discussion of your smile goals as well as a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. We recommend that any existing oral health concerns, like cavities, are treated beforehand to ensure the best and longest lasting results. Based on these details, Dr. R will outline a treatment plan for you, including how many veneers you’ll need and any preliminary treatments required.

Once you decide to move forward with your treatment, Dr. R will prepare your teeth that will be receiving veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from them—think the width of a contact lens. He’ll then secure temporary veneers atop your prepared teeth after taking impressions to send off to our dental laboratory to craft your permanent ones. Once your final veneers arrive, we’ll call you back in to cement them onto your teeth and complete your treatment.

The Benefits of Veneers

Cost vs. Cosmetic Dentistry: What's Right For Me?

Whether you’re unhappy with your smile because of noticeable discoloration or an unsightly chip, it’s very likely that there is more than one cosmetic dental treatment that can give you the results you desire. That’s why it’s important to compare the cost and benefits of each! Here is some additional information to help:

  • Braces – Invisalign revolutionized the field of orthodontics with their discreet aligners that could address everything from overcrowding to bite problems. However, it’s actually veneers that have the nickname “instant orthodontics!” After all, they can address minor cases of misalignment in as little as two visits, and the results can last for more than two decades with proper care.
  • Teeth Whitening – Professional teeth whitening blows anything you’d find at your local store – from whitening toothpastes to whitening kits – out of the water. There is one advantage of veneers though: they can address permanent discoloration. The results also last significantly longer, which is another reason they are worth the investment.
  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding – Like veneers, cosmetic dental bonding can fix stains, chips, gaps, and other common imperfections. The main difference is longevity. While cosmetic dental bonding typically lasts for a few years at a time, veneers often last for several decades. So, even though the upfront price is higher, it still makes sense for your wallet.
  • Veneers – The benefits of veneers are noteworthy – from their versatility to the quick turnaround time. Whether you’re interested in improving the size, shape, shade, or position of your teeth, this may be the best choice, even if it comes with a higher upfront investment.
