What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are extremely thin covers or shells that look just like real teeth, and they can be fitted over the front surface of the enamel. The veneers are bonded into place so that they look and feel like actual teeth, thereby improving the general aesthetic appeal of your teeth in general. At Woodshore Family Dentistry, we provide some of the best custom-made dental veneers that can give you a complete smile makeover.

Types of Dental Veneers

Dental veneers may be made of one of two materials — porcelain or composite resin. Both of them come with their unique sets of advantages and disadvantages.

Porcelain Dental Veneers

The following are the primary qualities of porcelain dental veneers:

  • They’re extremely strong and last long.
  • They look and feel just like natural teeth.
  • The dentist doesn’t need to remove too much of your tooth enamel — as would be necessary for a dental crown.
  • Dental veneers are stain-resistant, so they remain white longer.

Composite Resin Dental Veneers

Composite resin dental veneers are shells made of composite resin attached to the front of your teeth. They have the following qualities:

  • Composite resin dental veneers even require less enamel removed than porcelain dental veneers.
  • Most composite resin veneers can be attached in a single session.
  • They’re inexpensive.
  • Composite resin dental veneers aren’t nearly as strong as porcelain veneers, but they’re a lot easier to fix if they get damaged.

How to Get Beautiful Dental Veneers

In most cases, it takes three different sessions to apply beautiful dental veneers. The following is a brief overview of all the steps you’ll need to go through to get dental veneers:

  • Diagnosis: During the first visit, you need to carefully explain why you need dental veneers and what you’re trying to achieve. The dentist will examine your teeth, perhaps using an X-ray, and determine if dental veneers are the correct option for you. If you’re suitable for dental veneers, the dentist will also take impressions of your teeth to prepare a set of veneers.
  • Preparation: To attach the dental veneers, some of the enamel will have to be shaved off your teeth. The dentist will shave around 1/2 millimeter of enamel from your teeth — which corresponds to the thickness of the dental veneer. This may be done under anesthetic influence, so you don’t feel any pain or discomfort. The dentist will also take impressions of your teeth and send them to the laboratory where they will create the perfect dental veneers over a course of 2-4 weeks. In some cases, the dentist may give you the best temporary veneers to wear while your permanent ones are prepared.
  • Bonding: Once the dental veneer is prepared, the dentist will temporarily place it on your tooth to make sure that it fits properly and is the right shade and length. If necessary, the dentist will modify and trim the veneer while adjusting it to your tooth. To apply the dental veneer to your tooth, the dentist will clean, polish, and etch your tooth to facilitate the bonding process. A special type of cement will be applied, and the veneer will be attached to it. Finally, the dentist will remove all surplus cement and make final adjustments.

Advantages of Dental Veneers

The following are the primary advantages of dental veneers:

  • You may have stained teeth because of years of drinking coffee, tea, or red wine. Sometimes, teeth whitening procedures don’t work because the discoloration goes beyond the surface. In those cases, dental veneers are the best way to restore the whiteness of your teeth. Furthermore, dental veneers are stain-resistant, so your teeth remain white.
  • Dental veneers are the best way to treat cosmetic problems like chipped or broken teeth, misalignment of teeth, etc.
  • Enamel, once lost, doesn’t return. And regardless of how strong enamel is, it can wear away over time. In those cases, dental veneers are the best way to replace the lost enamel.

Disadvantages of Dental Veneers

The following are the main disadvantages of dental veneers:

  • They can be pretty expensive, costing over $1,000 for a single dental veneer.
  • Dental veneers may render your teeth sensitive to hot or cold temperatures.
  • Your dentist will need to remove some of your enamel to fit the dental veneers, making it a permanent procedure.

There are many ways to turn your dream smile into reality, each with its own costs, timelines, and longevity. Our cosmetic dentist will conduct a comprehensive examination of your mouth and discuss your goals to determine the most suitable services for you, such as:

  • Teeth Whitening: Professional whitening can brighten surface and age-related discoloration by up to 8 shades. The results can last for several months or even years with proper aftercare, providing a long-lasting improvement.
  • Metal-Free Restorations: We offer several metal-free restorative dentistry options, like EMAX, zirconia, and porcelain dental crowns. These materials all closely resemble the color and light-reflecting properties of tooth enamel, leading to seamless results.
  • Veneers: If you seek a quick and minimally invasive solution, veneers are a great choice. Although they are often not covered by dental insurance, they can be cost-effective in the long run as they offer comprehensive correction without requiring multiple treatments. Veneers can also last for a decade or more before replacement.

Rest assured – our team will provide a thorough estimate and explain all fees involved so you can make an informed decision before committing to any procedure.

How to Make Veneers Affordable

In the majority of cases, dental insurance plans do not cover veneers since they’re not typically deemed "medically necessary". However, there are alternative ways to make veneers more affordable. At Woodshore Family Dentistry, we offer the following options:

  • Flexible Financing: Our team understands the importance of providing flexible payment options. We offer financing through CareCredit, allowing you to pay for your veneer treatment with low-to-no interest monthly installments. This way, you can cover the cost over time, making it more manageable and avoiding a large upfront payment.

What are the differences between Lumineers and veneers?

Teeth veneers are thin covers applied to the front of your teeth to enhance their cosmetic appearance.

A cosmetic dentist can enhance the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, no matter if they are stained, broken, chipped, or have gaps between them.

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, a single dental veneer costs — on average — $1,313.

Crooked teeth can’t be fixed with dental veneers. But the veneers can conceal them so that it gives the outward appearance of whole and perfectly aligned teeth.

Removing the enamel is necessary for dental veneers because that’s the only way they will fit in place.

Dentists put on porcelain veneers by shaving off some of the enamel from your teeth, taking your impressions, and crafting a set of dental veneers that perfectly resemble your teeth.

When you get dental implants and dental veneers, it’s important to be sure that your teeth are in a healthy state and that there are no diseases. You should also be careful about eating hard food items immediately after the procedure.

Lumineers are also dental veneers, but they’re extremely thin and can be placed over your original teeth without the need for any shaving or restructuring of your teeth. This makes Lumineers a reversible process.
