Veneers are thin (yet durable) sheets of porcelain that go on the front side of your teeth. Before they are bonded in place, we remove a layer of enamel to help the veneers fit snugly in place.
Once the enamel is removed, we’ll take digital impressions of the prepared teeth and upload them to our smile preview software. Using this advanced software, we can work together to map out your new smile from the color to the shape to the length of your new teeth.
After we have a model of your new smile, we send all of the information to our off-site lab where they fabricate the custom veneers. When we get them in, we’ll call you into our office to bond them to your teeth and make sure they look and feel great!
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, it will be impossible to provide you with an exact cost without a full dental examination and a good understanding of how you would like your smile to look like at the end.
Just to give you an idea, a full-mouth restoration with veneers will cost around 10,000 to 20,000 and up plus lab fees.
Sometimes just a few veneers will give you the result your desired and the cost will be much less.
Some insurance dental plans will cover veneers; we can help you find out if yours will cover.
We also offer dental plans with easy monthly payments so you can get the smile you always dreamed of, ask us for more information.
How long is the procedure to get veneers?
The process usually takes about two dental appointments. At the first one, we’ll prepare your teeth, take impressions, and design your new smile.
On your second appointment, the veneers will be placed and you will leave with a beautiful new perfect smile.
Are veneers permanent?
Yes! One of the many benefits of veneers is that they provide a permanent solution for any cosmetic imperfections you want to alter.
The veneers are held in place using an extra-strength bonding adhesive, which means you can still enjoy the freedoms of biting into apples and eating with ease.
While natural wear and tear may occur, your veneers should stay in great shape for 15 to 20 years, with some minor fixes here and there.
