Veneers are ultra-thin, tooth-colored shells that are customizable in terms of size, shape, and color. When placed over the front teeth, they can offer patients the bright, straight smile that they’ve been dreaming of! If you have one or two front teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or have been damaged by decay or dental trauma, they can be used to protect these teeth and help them blend in with the others. It’s also common for patients to have veneers placed on all of their front teeth to instantly enhance the overall appearance of their smile.
Are veneers permanent?
Before a veneer can be placed over a tooth, a small amount of tooth enamel must be removed to ensure that there is enough room for a veneer so that it will not look or feel bulky. Enamel is the hard outer layer of a tooth, and once it is altered, a dental restoration of some kind must always be used to protect the tooth. However, we always work closely with patients to ensure that they are customized to their exact specifications so that they won’t want them to be removed!
Veneers tend to be more of a financial investment than other cosmetic dental options. This is due in part to the fact that they are highly customizable and made for each patient on an individual basis. They are also made of a durable porcelain material, which allows them to last anywhere from ten to twenty years or longer before they need to be modified or replaced. While dental insurance doesn’t always offer coverage for cosmetic services like veneers, our office provides a variety of flexible financing options to help you get the treatments you want and need!Learn More
