What types of problems do dental veneers fix?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the surface of your teeth to improve their color, shape, size or length. The types of cosmetic dental problems that veneers can fix include:

 

  • Tooth discoloration from stains, excessive fluoride use, or root canals
  • Worn, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Misaligned or uneven teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

Veneers can be used on single or multiple teeth, and they are custom-made to match the color of your natural teeth.

Procedure for dental veneers

The entire process for getting dental veneers takes two to three appointments. In the first appointment, we will examine the affected teeth to determine whether veneers are appropriate.

If veneers are right for you, we’ll prepare your teeth by slightly reshaping the surface to accommodate the veneer, then make impressions of your mouth and teeth to send to a lab that fabricates the customized veneers. 

Once the veneers are ready to attach, your teeth will be cleaned and polished, and a strong adhesive will be used to bond the veneers to your teeth. High-intensity lights are used to harden the adhesive, and we’ll make final adjustments to the veneers as necessary. A third appointment might be necessary to evaluate the placement and ensure your gums are responding to the veneers appropriately.

Benefits of dental veneers

The main benefit of dental veneers is a beautiful new smile, but there are other benefits as well. 

  • Veneers look and feel like natural teeth
  • Veneers are less invasive than crowns and implants. 
  • Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant 
  • Veneers are strong and can last up to 15 year
  • Veneers don’t irritate gum tissue like some other dental prosthetics can
  • Veneers can correct visible stains
  • Veneers can address chipped or broken teeth 

Caring for veneers is as easy as caring for your natural teeth. Just brush, floss, and visit your dentist regularly.

Does insurance cover veneers?

Dental veneers are considered cosmetic improvements rather than necessary dental procedures, so dental insurance usually does not cover the cost. However, some insurance policies will cover all or a portion of the cost of veneers if they are needed to restore the structure of the tooth or if an existing veneer is damaged.
