A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is placed on the front of a tooth to cover up aesthetic flaws. The veneer is adhered to your tooth with a dental cement. You can get one veneer or a full set of veneers–it’s up to you! Veneers are often used to cover up discoloration, poor size and shape, gaps, cracks, and chips. Veneers are not just about beauty; they also strengthen cracked or chipped teeth by completing the damaged tooth. Veneers have the ability to last many years with proper oral hygiene and care.
Both options are used to cover up cracks, chips, discoloration, and gaps. Dental bonding is a composite material that is shaped over a tooth and hardened with a special light. The procedure is just as quick as veneers, but doesn’t last as long and is more easily stained than veneers. Bonding also has a greater chance of chipping or cracking and must be replaced years down the line. Porcelain veneers are the stronger and longer lasting option; thus, patients are making the investment in veneers.
You can expect such benefits as a quick procedure, longevity, great strength, and a natural appearance. Porcelain veneers can really beautify and fortify a smile! A full smile makeover is possible with veneers, and without all the fuss of braces and intrusive procedures!
Cost is dependent on the type of veneer you choose to get, as well as the number of veneers being placed. Some insurance plans may cover a portion of the veneer cost. We also take Care Credit as a financing option. Care Credit is a third party financing party that offers low-interest or no-interest payment plans to help patients invest in the smile of their dreams. Call our office for more information on how we can help you with the cost of veneers.
