WHAT ARE DENTAL VENEERS?

Dental veneers are thin shells that cosmetic dentists use to cover slight smile imperfections. After careful tooth preparation, veneers are permanently bonded to the teeth (usually the front teeth) using a strong dental cement.

Veneers do not cover the entire tooth as a dental crown does. Instead, they cover only the front surface of the tooth structure.

WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER VENEERS?

A dentist can improve the appearance of multiple teeth that are damaged or lackluster with veneers. Common reasons why patients get veneers include:

  • Discolored teeth or stubborn tooth discoloration that resists whitening treatments
  • Crooked teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Gaps in the teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth

Research suggests that over half of all Americans are dissatisfied with their smiles. But, according to the American Dental Association, patients find that smile-correcting dental procedures improve not only their appearance but also their self-esteem. So, are veneers worth it? Absolutely!

IS THERE MORE THAN ONE KIND OF DENTAL VENEER?

Yes! There are typically two kinds:

  • Traditional porcelain veneers
  • Composite resin veneers

Dentists can make traditional dental veneers from durable dental ceramic–also known as porcelain. However, composite veneers consist of a strong, long-lasting resin mixture. Both porcelain veneers and composite veneers are stain-resistant and color-matched to resemble your desired tooth color (so, they look just like natural teeth!).

Tooth-colored composite resin veneers and traditional veneers are both permanent veneers. But, many dentists will protect your teeth with temporary veneers while your custom-made resin or porcelain dental veneers are expertly crafted.

WHAT IS THE VENEER PLACEMENT PROCESS LIKE?

First, you and a dentist will discuss your smile goals. After that, the dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of tooth enamel so that the veneer sits flush against your natural tooth. The process of enamel removal requires a local anesthetic.

Next, the dentist will bond the veneers to your teeth. After this cosmetic procedure, you’ll enjoy a picture-perfect smile that you can enjoy for years to come! (Psst! Don’t forget to take before and after photos!)

HOW MUCH DO VENEERS COST?

The cost of veneers depends on many factors, such as:

Dental insurance typically does not cover cosmetic procedures, such as dental veneers. However, affordable dental veneers are not as uncommon as you may think!

Usually, porcelain veneers cost anywhere from $925 to $2,500 per tooth, while resin dental veneers cost almost $250 to $1500 per tooth.

Our Altamonte dental team recommends that patients check with their insurance providers to see if they cover veneers. Understanding how much veneers and other cosmetic dentistry procedures cost is just the first step to getting a dental procedure.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY VENEERS?

When it comes to the life of veneers, patients’ dental health cannot be underestimated. So, be sure to practice good oral hygiene, such as:

  • Brushing at least twice daily
  • Flossing at least once daily
  • Scheduling regular dental care, like checkups and cleanings

With proper care, your veneers can last for decades!
