A popular cosmetic option, veneers are thin coverings that are placed onto and bonded with your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are made from layers of dental ceramic, and are specially handcrafted to blend in with your natural teeth and maximize your smile.
What Are Veneers Used For?
Veneers are an augmentation to your natural teeth. Celebrities, actors, or other figures in the public eye require a dazzling smile, and veneers are a convenient way to achieve results. Veneers are used for a variety of cosmetic issues, including:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Discoloration or stains
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
- Damaged or aged dental work
In particular, porcelain veneers come with several advantages. They are long lasting, and can be used for 20 years or even longer with proper care. Unlike other kinds of veneers, porcelain veneers are stain resistant. Highly customizable, they can be crafted into many shapes, sizes and tints.
There are some things to consider when using porcelain veneers. Some enamel on your natural teeth must be removed in order to bond the veneers correctly. This cannot be reversed, and may cause some sensitivity. And while highly durable, veneers are still susceptible to teeth grinding and can break if ground for extended periods of time. If veneers are broken they can not be repaired, and must be replaced entirely.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
The price of veneers varies greatly by state and region. While the expense of veneers can be an intimidating prospect, we here at Savannah Dental Solutions seek to bring out your best smile at an affordable price. The amount, size and shape of veneers, in addition to the crafting process, can play into the overall cost of a set. A cost estimate can be determined during a complimentary consultation with us.
As a strictly cosmetic procedure, veneers are not covered by dental insurance plans. However, several payment plans are available to you and can be discussed during your visit.
Do I Need a Full Set of Veneers?
While many come into consultations seeking a full set of veneers, there are also other options available. As an complement to your natural smile, veneers are only needed where they enhance the overall image. When consulting with us, we can determine what the best plan is towards completing your smile. A partial set or even just a few well placed veneers can be just what you need!
Are Porcelain Veneers a Good Investment?
Porcelain veneers are a long-term investment, lasting significantly longer than alternatives like composite resin. Made of the highest quality materials, each veneer is carefully crafted to be a permanent addition to your daily life. They provide an instant solution to a large array of cosmetic issues that could normally take months to address.
