Accelerated Smile Makeover With Veneers

Dentist and patient

For a beautiful smile, you may need a little cosmetic work now and then to improve stains and hide chips or unevenness. Dental veneers do all of this at once, giving you a complete smile makeover with minimal time in the dentist’s chair. As one of the most commonly used cosmetic dental treatments, veneers have a long history of use in Hollywood in particular. Consider this upgrade to your smile if you’re dealing with minor to major visual issues with your teeth. There are multiple types available that offer a range of benefits depending on your dental situation and goals.

How Do Veneers Work to Improve the Smile?

Veneers act as a sort of cover that fits over the natural tooth, giving it an all-new appearance. This minimizes the work done on your natural teeth while giving you a beautiful smile. Each veneer is customized to match the color of your other teeth and with the ideal shape to fit in. No one besides your dentist will be able to guess you’ve gotten veneers added to your smile. With so many materials to choose from, it’s easy to balance considerations like longevity, stain resistance, and cost.

Types of Veneers

  • Porcelain Veneers: The porcelain veneer is durable and offers the greatest amount of coverage for hiding stains or disguising chipped edges. However, they also cost the most for the majority of patients and require more enamel removal as prep work.
  • Composite Veneers: Made from a composite resin-based material, these veneers are best used for hiding more minor issues. They require relatively little prep work, but you’ll need to watch out for drinks like wine and coffee that could stain them.
  • Removable Veneers: Snap-on veneers act like retainers and improve the look of your smile with practically no alterations to your natural teeth. Yet they’re not for wearing while eating and can alter your speech slightly until you get used to them.
  • No-Prep Veneers: For permanent veneers with the least possible alteration to your natural tooth enamel, consider the no-prep option. While some small amount of prep work is still needed, it’s minimal and leaves as much of your tooth intact as possible. This is a great choice if you plan to remove the veneers later rather than continually replacing them as needed.

Dental Veneer Cost Estimates

The costs for dental veneers range greatly depending on the type you choose and the number of veneers you have placed. A single composite veneer will cost only a fraction of a full set of six or more porcelain veneers. Porcelain tends to raise the price the most, followed by composite veneers. Snap-on veneers tend to cost the least, but they also have the lowest durability. Customization is standard when designing veneers, but extra color matching or shaping work may raise the cost of dental veneers. Only your dentist can give you an accurate quote for this kind of procedure since it’s based on your needs and choices.

Veneers vs Dental Crowns

Before deciding that veneers for teeth are right for you, don’t forget the option of using dental crowns. Crowns are best for stabilizing teeth with more extensive damage, but they can also help create the appearance of a whole and bright white tooth over a stained or cracked exterior. These devices are rarely used for the more visible front teeth, while veneers are commonly applied to them. Veneers can’t do the same repair work as a crown, but you can use them in conjunction on various teeth depending on their condition and how much care they need.

Preparing for New Veneers

The dentist will first examine your teeth and discuss your ideas for a brighter Hollywood smile. They’ll determine which teeth are good candidates for veneer placement and do any necessary alterations by removing small amounts of tooth enamel. Then they’ll take impressions of your teeth so the custom veneers are manufactured directly to fit. Composite veneers don’t need impressions like porcelain ones do, so they’ll be shaped on your teeth instead. The dentist will place temporary veneers if you choose porcelain since they must be made in a specialist dental lab, which can take a few weeks.
