Dental veneers can be a great solution for fixing a number of dental problems, such as crowding, chipped or worn down teeth, and stained teeth. These thin shells are applied to the front surface of your teeth to enhance their appearance, hiding any noticeable flaws and creating a straight and even look.

The shade of veneers can be adjusted to match your natural tooth color, and the process of applying them is generally painless. Veneers are designed to be strong and durable, so they should last for many years before requiring replacement or repair.

Each set of dental veneers is custom-designed to meet your specific needs, ensuring that you get the results you want. The entire process typically involves two appointments: the first to take scans of your teeth and the second to apply and adjust the veneers to your teeth.

  • How long do dental veneers last?

    When you have your dental veneer procedure, it’s important to take care of them so they can last as long as possible. Proper brushing and flossing will ensure your dental veneers remain in good condition.

    The type of dental veneers you get also plays a part in how long yours last. Porcelain veneers can last up to 12 years, while composite veneers can last up to 8 years.

  • What is the difference between porcelain veneers and composite veneers?

    The two main types of dental veneers are: porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Both are good options to help you improve your smile.

    Composite veneers are manufactured in-office, using tooth-colored resin, and applied directly to the teeth. They are typically less expensive and quicker to apply than porcelain veneers, and they work well to cover up many aesthetic problems.

    Porcelain veneers are custom-made, out of porcelain, to fit your teeth. These are typically made in a laboratory and sent to our office. We will apply them and ensure they fit your teeth as they should. Porcelain veneers generally last longer because of the stronger material, provide a more natural look, and can fix larger cosmetic issues such as very dark stained teeth or teeth positioned incorrectly.

  • Veneers vs. crowns—what’s the difference?

    Dental veneers and dental crowns are both used for cosmetic purposes—to resolve chips, stains, discoloration, or crooked teeth. The main difference between the two is that dental crowns cover the entire tooth surface where veneers only cover the front portion of the tooth. Crowns (2 mm) are much thicker than veneers (1 mm) and the price for each is similar. Crowns provide additional support to damaged teeth where veneers do not. However, veneers are a much less invasive procedure and require less removal of the original tooth structure. 

    Veneers and crowns are both a great solution for patients looking to get a white, straight smile that looks and feels natural. If you’re interested, but unsure which option is right for you, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.

  • What do dental veneers cost?

    Veneers typically are not covered by insurance since they are considered a cosmetic procedure. However, costs can range depending on your dentist. As an average, traditional dental veneers range from $925 to $2,500 per tooth and no-prep dental veneers cost around $800 to $2000 per tooth.
