What Are Veneers?
Veneers cover the front of the tooth to help shape or hide the existing tooth. Veneers are used to give you a beautiful smile. Are your teeth stained and bleaching techniques are not working? Do you desire a straight and bright smile? Veneers could be a great option!
Benefits of Dental Veneers
Benefit to veneers are simple, they improve the appearance of your teeth and give you a brighter and more even smile. Some issues dental veneers help solve are:
- broken or chipped teeth
- discoloration or uneven coloring
- large gaps in the teeth
- small or unusually shaped teeth
Difference between Veneers, Crowns, and Implants
The major difference is veneers adhere to the front of the tooth. As long as the back of the teeth are intact Veneers can be used without as much preparation or grinding down of your existing tooth. Crowns need more of your existing tooth to be ground down for a proper fit. If the back of the tooth is damaged a crown is a better option. Crowns encompass the entire tooth. A dental implant replaces a missing tooth and is an entirely new tooth but like crowns and veneers, can match your surrounding teeth.
Veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure and are not often covered by insurance. You could expect to pay between $500 and $2,500 per tooth for veneers. Veneers generally last between 5 to 7 years before they need to be replaced.
We do not recommend sleeping with dentures as bacteria may build up and cause infection. It is recommended you soak your dentures overnight in denture solution to kill any bacteria.
The average cost typically ranges from $1,000 to $3,000 but depending on many factors these prices and vary greatly. We will be happy to discuss your options.
You should get your teeth cleaned by a local dentist every 6 months. Between cleanings you should brush your teeth and floss a minimum of twice daily. We recommend using a waterpik if you can to help clean your teeth and gums.
