What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their color, size, and shape. Although a veneer can be applied to a single tooth, a variety of imperfections can be corrected when bonded to the teeth visible when smiling. Veneers can be the ideal solution to treat:

  • Stains or discoloration
  • Shorter than average teeth
  • Gaps between front teeth
  • Chips or cracks

Although veneers are versatile, you’ll require a consultation with your cosmetic dentist to ensure they are right for you. After examining your mouth and learning more about your goals, they’ll create a personalized strategy to transform your smile.

The Process of Getting Veneers

If your teeth and gums are healthy, you’ll be scheduled for the first phase of your procedure. Your teeth are cleaned and your cosmetic dentist in Allentown may use a local anesthetic to ensure you’re comfortable. The front surfaces of your teeth are etched, which is necessary to ensure the veneers fit your teeth like a glove. Since veneers are thinner than ever, less enamel is removed to keep more of your tooth structure.

After your teeth have been prepped, your dentist will take an impression of your mouth to get the measurements necessary to create your veneers. The information will be sent to the dental lab, where they will craft your new smile with the utmost precision. It can take the lab a couple of weeks, so your dentist will attach temporary veneers while you wait. Once your permanent restorations have been sent back to the office, you’ll return to have them bonded in place.

You will walk out of the office with the picture-perfect smile you’ve always wanted, which can last for a decade or longer with the right care.

The Benefits of Veneers

Although there are more cosmetic options than ever, veneers continue to rank among the top procedures, and for good reasons. Veneers offer several benefits, including:

  • Natural-Looking Results: Veneers are made of porcelain, which closely mimics your enamel to look natural.
  • Feel Natural: Veneers are lightweight, so you don’t have to worry about your teeth feeling bulky.
  • Cost-Effective: You can treat multiple issues simultaneously without needing to pay for multiple procedures.
  • Minimally Invasive: New technologies and techniques make the process minimally invasive while providing longer-lasting results.

If your smile isn’t up to par, don’t spend another day feeling anxious about your appearance. We’ll give your confidence a boost by creating the smile you deserve. Contact our office today to request your consultation for veneers. 

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

While veneers might sound good, perhaps their price worries you. That’s a natural concern – you can’t get a treatment if it exceeds your budget. However, the cost of veneers varies by patient; you’ll need to see our dentists for an exact estimate. Once the price is settled, our office will work to make your care affordable. We’ll even walk you through our other cosmetic services and payment options. For more details, just keep reading or call us today!

Cost vs. Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?

Certainly, our team can provide you with top-tier veneers. That said, you’ll want to pick the right cosmetic service for your goals. It’s thus a good idea to review our office’s other choices as well. In doing so, you’ll ensure your treatment is truly cost-effective.

In particular, consider the cosmetic options listed below:

  • Direct Bonding – By using tooth-colored resin, direct bonding hides minor smile flaws. (These include small tooth stains, cracks, etc.) While quick and cheap, though, its effects are short-lived; you’ll need a touchup every few years.
  • Teeth Whitening – Per its name, whitening is a treatment that brightens your smile. It does so by bleaching your enamel to remove lingering tooth stains. The result is often a grin that’s six to eight shades whiter. This procedure is moderately priced and only affects tooth color.
  • Metal-Free Restorations – To be precise, metal-free restorations are non-metallic fillings and crowns. Their purpose is to both protect teeth and enhance their appearance. Due to their ceramic materials, they’re biocompatible and gentle on your mouth tissues. Do note, however, that they can be a bit pricey.
  • Porcelain Veneers – Veneers are thin, porcelain shells placed on the fronts of teeth. Once in position, they hide chips, cracks, stains, and more from view. Due to such versatility, the shells are often expensive.

How to Make Veneers Affordable

Truthfully, dental insurance won’t often cover veneers. Most dental plans consider the shells a luxury and thus “medically unnecessary.” Still, there are occasional exceptions; a policy might cover veneers if they protect a damaged area. Therefore, you’d be wise to confirm your benefits before pursuing treatment. Our team can help you do so if necessary.

All the same, dental insurance isn’t the only way to make veneers affordable. Many dental practices offer helpful payment options. Given the proper one, your veneer treatment could easily fit your budget.

Consider our own practice, for instance. We work with CareCredit, a reputable third-party financier. Through them, you could pay for veneers via low-interest monthly installments. This approach would let you gradually cover the treatment cost.

In the end, our whole team wants to give you veneers that are gorgeous and budget-friendly. So, please book a consultation and visit our office soon!
