Is a Porcelain Veneer Capable of Fixing Misaligned Teeth?
A porcelain veneer is a custom-made dental appliance that is shaded to match your natural teeth. Veneers are placed on top of existing teeth, creating a uniform look. Dentists recommend veneers for those who have otherwise healthy teeth but want to correct discoloration, minor alignment issues, or gaps. Give our office a call to find out whether veneers are right for you.
What Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
We understand that you may have questions about cost when considering porcelain veneers. Generally, the porcelain veneers cost is determined by your insurance, what type of veneers you choose, and how many teeth are being treated. Many insurance plans do not offer coverage for cosmetic treatment, but you may be able to obtain affordable veneers through flexible financing. Please give us a call for more information.
Is a Veneer Different from a Crown?
Both porcelain crowns and veneers can be used to correct cosmetic dental flaws, but they are different appliances. Crowns are typically placed when a patient has lost a portion of a healthy tooth due to injury or decay. On the other hand, veneers are ideal for those who have healthy teeth but wish to correct a discoloration, shaping, or alignment issue. If you have further questions about crowns or veneers porcelain, contact our office.

What Happens During the Veneers Procedure?
The porcelain veneers procedure typically takes place over two visits to our dental office. First, the dentist will use a mold to create a custom blueprint for the final appliance. In some cases, a small layer of tooth enamel will need to be removed to make way for the veneer. During the placement appointment, the dentist will attach your final veneer and make any necessary adjustments.
How Long Do Veneers Stay in Good Condition?
With proper care and regular dental appointments, veneers can last for several decades. Be sure to brush and floss your new porcelain teeth regularly, and never use your teeth to open bags or bottles.
What Are Lumineers® Veneers?
Lumineers are a specific brand of veneers that are constructed using durable, ultra-lightweight materials. Lumineers can last more than 20 years, and they do not usually require removal of the natural tooth enamel. Get in touch with our office to find out if you’re a good candidate for Lumineers.
