Achieve the look you desire

If you want to improve your smile, dental veneers are a simple option. Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth. They look like natural teeth.

PORCELAIN VENEERS

Thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural appearance of teeth also known as Porcelain Veneers, giving strength similar to natural tooth enamel. Similarly, that is frequently the material of preference to change teeth shape, size, and color.

Frequently Asked Questions

The integrity of veneered teeth is only marginally compromised, and the veneer is bonded to the existing teeth. There is no higher incidence of decay provided the veneers are properly cared for as previously mentioned with regular flossing and brushing with toothpaste. In general, it is good dental advice to keep your sugar consumption low and confined to mealtimes to prevent decay.

They can last from seven to twenty years. While the veneer itself is inert and non-living, the tooth or teeth to which they are attached and the surrounding gum tissues are living and may change. For example, gum line shrinkage may expose or reveal root surfaces. If a veneer comes off it can generally be re-bonded. If it chips it can sometimes be re-bonded or otherwise replaced.

Porcelain veneers can be used in a number of different ways. The most common uses are to:

  • Repair minor tooth imperfections and defects
  • Cover over and conceal fillings that have become stained or discolored
  • Make color changes to teeth that have permanent stains
  • Close the spaces between teeth

Some insurance companies will cover up to 50% of the fee they deem customary. However, it depends upon what your employer has contracted for with your insurance company rather than what Family Cosmetic Dentistry is charging. Don’t forget that we also have to pay the dental technician who actually fabricates the veneers, a critical component in the fee.
