What Can Veneers Fix?
Porcelain veneers have quickly become one of the most sought cosmetic dental treatments because they provide drastic, natural-looking results. By placing custom-made thin shells on the front surfaces of your teeth, their size, shape, color, and proportion improve instantly.
Veneers are quite versatile, allowing them to resolve several issues that impact your self-esteem, like dark tooth discoloration. You will hide the stains while enjoying a smile that will stay bright because porcelain is stain-resistant. Not to mention, it closely looks like your enamel, so no one will be able to tell that they are not your real teeth.
Veneers are often a perfect option to treat teeth that have chips, cracks, or an abnormal appearance. In some cases, they can even be used as an alternative to traditional orthodontics. Instead of spending months wearing braces, you can cover your minor alignment concerns in just a couple of appointments.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
- Multiple Changes at Once: If there are several cosmetic flaws that you want to cover up, there’s no need to get multiple treatments; porcelain veneers can correct many of these problems at once.
- Efficient: It normally takes two visits to place veneers: one to prep the teeth and take impressions, and the other to permanently join your veneers to your smile.
- Aesthetics: We use high quality porcelain that reflects the light the same way tooth enamel does. It can also be shaded so that it blends in with your natural teeth. The result is a beautiful restoration that looks natural in your mouth; most people won’t even know you have veneers.
- Longevity: Porcelain veneers can last 10 to 20 years as long as you take good care of them. Fortunately, all this means is continuing to practice good oral hygiene; simply brush and floss your veneers like you would your other teeth, and don’t forget to come in for checkups and cleanings twice a year.
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
When compared to veneers that are made from other materials, porcelain has become the preferred choice. It is thinner, allowing more of your tooth’s structure to remain intact. By doing so, the procedure is minimally invasive.
Your cosmetic dentist in South Austin, Dr. Fan, will first clean your teeth and lightly etch their surfaces to prepare them for bonding. This is necessary to allow the veneers to sit flush on your teeth. Then, digital impressions of your mouth are taken to design your new smile.
Your veneers are customized to meet your exact specifications. It can take the dental lab a couple of weeks to ensure their precision. While you wait, Dr. Fan will attach temporary ones, so you do not need to worry about extra attention being drawn to your mouth.
After they send your permanent ones back to the office, you will return for your final appointment. Your new veneers will be bonded in place and polished. You will walk out of our office with a flawless smile that you will want to show off.
Cost of Porcelain Veneers
Just as no two patients are alike, no two porcelain veneer procedures are the same. The final cost of your porcelain veneers will vary based on multiple factors. For example, the cost of getting just one porcelain veneer will obviously be very different than the cost of multiple porcelain veneers. Also, since your mouth needs to be in good health overall before you can receive your veneers, any existing gum disease and tooth decay will need to be treated first.
Dental insurance typically won’t pay for veneers since they’re a cosmetic procedure. That said, it can’t hurt to review your plan and double check what is or isn’t covered. Sometimes you might receive partial benefits for veneers if they’re used as a restorative treatment.
During your initial consultation, we’ll help you plan ahead for your treatment by giving you an accurate estimate of the final cost of your veneers ahead of time.
