Veneers are thin shells that are applied over the front of existing teeth. They are made of either porcelain or resin. Veneers are often an irreversible procedure that results in brighter, straighter smiles.
Veneers are versatile treatment options for patients who want a Hollywood smile by correcting the color, shape, size, or length of their teeth.You don’t need to be a celebrity to benefit from the beautiful benefits of veneers. Many patients who get veneers are happier and more confident.
What Veneers Treat
Veneers are the perfect dental treatment for patients with excessive tooth enamel wear, uneven teeth, discolored teeth, chipped or broken teeth, teeth with uneven, jagged edges, noticeable gaps between teeth, misshapen teeth and teeth with pits and striations.
The Benefits of Veneers
Veneers have become a popular smile enhancing option because of its many benefits, with the most notable including:
- A natural tooth appearance
- Great compatibility with gum tissue
- They are resistant to staining and chipping
- The color of the veneer can be selected to whiten the darkest teeth without looking unnatural or out of place
- No extensive prior shaping of the teeth is needed
- No additional special care
- A long life (veneers typically last between 7 and 14 years depending on the quality of oral hygiene care)
What Veneers Cost
The cost of veneers is determined by the location of the dental services and the extent of the needed veneer procedure. Veneers are generally not covered by insurance, so patients should contact their insurance company in advance to be sure.
