What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-shaped coverings that are designed to be placed on the front side of the teeth that show when you smile -- the pearly whites we also call the “social six,” since they are the ones that people see (and remember). Veneers are customized to match your unique facial features perfectly. Most adult patients who are in good oral health are eligible candidates for this cosmetic treatment!

Veneers can be used to mask the following issues:

  • Broken, chipped, or uneven teeth
  • Oddly shaped or textured teeth
  • Severely stained or discolored teeth
  • Other cosmetic issues affecting otherwise healthy teeth

What Is the Procedure for Porcelain Veneers?

The process for veneers takes 2 visits to the dentist and 2 to 3 weeks overall, typically. First, we will reshape your tooth enamel to make room for a new restoration to be placed on top. Then, an impression (or mold) will be taken of the teeth. This information is sent along with your treatment plan to our partner laboratory, where the veneers are crafted from high-quality dental porcelain. Temporary veneers cover the teeth in the time between appointments. Once we have received the permanent veneers, you will return to our office. This is when we remove the temporaries and place the new veneers on top -- and you’ll love the result!

What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers offer a wealth of advantages for patients who are interested in transforming the appearance of healthy but imperfect front teeth. Some of the most considerable advantages of porcelain veneers are listed below -- which would you enjoy most?

  • Can mask the appearance of just about any cosmetic flaw

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

Veneers are great for patients who are looking to make over their smile. However, they aren’t perfect for everyone. Before you can determine whether or not veneers are ideal for you, you must understand their cost. By choosing a skilled dentist and quality veneers, you can achieve a smile that’s perfect for the big screen, but there are plenty of other cosmetic options out there as well. Read on to learn more so you can make an informed decision about the future of your smile.

Cost VS Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?

For many patients, veneers instantly seem perfect. However, it’s a good idea to take a look at all of your options to see how each one would affect your smile. They all have different price points and can help patients to receive a variety of results. Here are just some of the most common:

  • Invisalign – If you’re dealing with a misalignment issue, you might find that Invisalign is the best option for correction. This type of treatment costs several thousands of dollars, but it’s highly effective for straightening teeth.
  • Teeth Whitening – Whitening is a quick solution to surface discoloration, and it is considerably more affordable than many other cosmetic options. However, it doesn’t address any aesthetic flaws other than staining. Results can last anywhere from a couple of months to a few years depending on how well you care for them.
  • Dental Bonding – Dental bonding is a minimally invasive procedure that can be completed in a single visit, and it’s one of the most affordable cosmetic options out there. If you want to correct minor imperfections, like chips and stains, this is a simple solution. Bonding lasts anywhere from 3 to 10 years when maintained properly.
  • Veneers – While they aren’t the cheapest cosmetic procedure out there, dental veneers do tend to be the easiest way to transform numerous aspects of your smile, including color, shape, and minor crookedness. The whole process can be completed in as little as two appointments and lasts up to 15 years or longer.

How to Make Veneers Affordable

Dental veneers aren’t usually covered by dental insurance since they are typically an elective treatment. However, this doesn’t mean that you are completely out of luck. We can help you qualify for a low-to-no-interest payment plan through our partners at CareCredit – a third-party financing company. Talk to one of our friendly team members to learn more.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

Does getting veneers hurt?

Depending on how many veneers you’re going to have placed, you’ll likely receive local anesthesia before the treatment begins. This will completely numb the area that your cosmetic dentist will be working on, so you shouldn’t be able to feel a thing. After your teeth have been prepared for the placement of the veneers, you’ll likely experience some soreness in your gums, and possibly even your jaw. However, this is normal for larger cases and should disappear within a week or two.

What foods should I avoid after getting veneers?

To get the most out of your porcelain veneers, it’s a good idea to avoid foods that could increase your risk of breaking or damaging one. This includes hard bread, chewy and hard candy, caramel apples, hard nuts, and popcorn. Before you leave, we’ll provide you with some tips and tricks to make sure that your veneers continue making your smile look great for as long as possible.

What should I do if my veneer comes off?

It’s very uncommon for veneers to come off. However, if they’re older or you happen to bite into something hard, it’s a possibility. Try not to panic and call our office. Be sure to collect and save your veneer, but don’t try to re-attach it to your tooth. We’ll get you into our office as soon as possible so we can repair it. In the meantime, you may experience some tooth sensitivity.

How much do porcelain veneers cost?

The price of your porcelain veneer procedure depends on how many teeth you’d like to have repaired. The more dental damage you’re concealing, the higher the cost of the treatment. Typically, dental insurance doesn’t cover the cost of this procedure; however, our team is more than happy to walk you through financing options, like CareCredit.

Are porcelain veneers permanent?

Porcelain veneers are a permanent procedure because they involve altering your natural teeth to be placed. However, once they’re cemented onto your teeth, they can last between 15 and 25 years before they need to be replaced again. This makes them a worthwhile investment, especially because they deliver beautiful and lasting results.
