Improving the look of your smile can be achieved through the use of various different procedures, but veneers provide you with the opportunity to completely change and customize the look of your smile with just one procedure.
Complete Care: For a complete smile overhaul, dental veneers may be the complete package.
Longer Lasting: Veneers can be matched to your natural teeth or can strategically improve the whiteness and brightness of your smile. Dental veneers will give you a whiter and brighter smile that lasts much longer than with just teeth whitening.
Less Invasive: With modern dental veneers, very little to no material must be removed from the tooth before the veneers can be permanently bonded to the tooth. This procedure is less invasive than a crown and preserves more of the natural tooth.
Before we get started we’d like to hear from you how and why you would like to improve your tooth or teeth. We want to ensure veneers are the best option for you and will help you achieve your smile goals. We may recommend a treatment plan before veneers are done, to ensure your gums are as healthy as possible and your veneers have a clean and healthy foundation.
To make space for your veneer, a thin layer of enamel is removed from the front of your tooth. We numb the area before we start working and the amount of enamel removed is very minimal. Next, we will take an impression of your prepared tooth and it’s neighbours to make sure your veneers fit perfectly and blend in with your smile.
A temporary veneer will be placed for your comfort while your permanent veneers are being created. Once they’re ready to go, your temporary veneers will be removed and the perfect permanent veneers will be permanently bonded in place. After some finishing touches and a quick polish, your smile will be ready to dazzle.
When you depart with your new veneers, you’ll be given detailed instructions on how to best care for them. Your new veneers will look and feel like natural teeth, and you must take care of them like you would your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing twice a day and routine cleanings and checkups are highly recommended! With proper care, your veneers will last ten years or more.
Porcelain veneers are strong, custom-formed, natural-looking covers that are bonded to the surface of teeth. They look just like perfectly healthy and natural teeth. Veneers are often used to repair chipped, decayed or stained teeth and to reshape teeth and close gaps.
Choosing veneers goes far beyond simply closing a gap in your smile line or achieving that “Hollywood”-white smile: it’s a choice that allows you to enjoy confidence and happiness that radiates throughout all aspects of your life.
Consider the things that you normally shy away from or dread due to your insecurities surrounding your smile.
We’ll work with you to create a smile that you’ll be itching to show off, no matter where you go or who you’re with!
The out-of-pocket cost for a dental veneer can vary widely from patient to patient. With a typical insurance plan, a single veneer averages out to about $200 to $600+. Without insurance, a reasonable ball-park figure for a veneer would be about $800 to $1200 and up.
Remember, no dental practice can provide an accurate quote over the phone. Ultimately, your needs are as unique as your smile. It’s important to speak with a dentist and undergo an oral exam to find out all your treatment options and to receive an accurate quote. If you have dental insurance, we would be happy to supply you with a quote to submit to them so you can find out your out-of-pocket costs before you make a decision.
