What Are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells placed over teeth to cover imperfections such as gaps, stains or chips. They can porcelain or resin composite materials. Porcelain has the translucent effect of natural teeth. Our dentists can help you decide what to right for you.
How Much Do Composite & Porcelain Veneers Cost?
Depending on the type of veneer the cost is approximately $1,100 and to $1,800 for tooth; however, the cost may go down if multiple teeth are done at the same time. Dental insurance seldom covers the cost.
What Is The Dental Veneers Process?
The dentist will want to examine your teeth to ensure you’re a good candidate for them, and the staff will work with you to cover financing and the paperwork. On the first visit, an impression of the teeth will be taken. Then a thin portion of the enamel removed followed by another impression. Temporary veneers may be needed. About two weeks later a custom veneer will be installed. Before the it is cemented the dentist will check for color and fit. Next the tooth will be: cleaned, polished and etched to ensure a strong bond. A special cement activated by light to quickly harden the cement is used. The final step removes any excess cement and adjusts the bite. Dental veneers last 5 to 10 years. Good dental hygiene and maintenance are essential.

Veneers vs. Bonding
Porcelain veneers are the best choice for a beautiful and natural smile when performed by a skilled and experienced cosmetic dentist. Bonding is a form of putty shaped and molded to fit the tooth. One of the benefits of bonding is that the process is relatively inexpensive and can be completed in one day.
