Some of the common issues that veneers can correct include gaps, misshapen teeth, cracks, chips, staining, and discoloration.
Patients can choose between porcelain veneers or composite resin veneers. Porcelain veneers usually last longer between the two options. They resist staining and tend to be stronger and more durable. Composite resin veneers can be completed in a single dental visit, while porcelain veneers typically require two dental visits.
Why are veneers so popular?
Many people want that “Hollywood” smile and veneers is one of the best options to accomplish that desire.
The most pleasing and perfect smiles you see on TV and magazine covers are often dentist created smiles rather than natural enamel!
However, not all veneer applications are equal in terms of beauty and deception of their natural appearance. Just as one artist or painter isn’t as accomplished as another, the background and experience of the cosmetic dentist makes a real difference in appearance.
After an initial consultation, your teeth are matched by color and shade. A separate appointment is then scheduled to apply the veneers to your teeth.
No, while the veneers are only about 1 millimeter thick, this same amount is removed from your teeth before applying the veneer in order to keep the same thickness.
The price of veneers varies by the number of teeth being treated. Contact our office to schedule a consultation and learn all about pricing for veneers.
