How do dental veneers work?
Dental veneers are incredibly thin shells that are applied on the front surfaces of a person’s teeth. Depending on the style of veneers, the teeth may be prepped first by removing a small amount of enamel. Once installed, the veneers can cover noticeable flaws to make adjustments to alignment. They can also adjust the thickness of the to improve spacing.
They are very easy to apply, requiring preparation of the teeth and then securing in place with a strong dental adhesive.
What is the difference between porcelain veneers and composite veneers?
The two main types of dental veneers are: porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Both are good options to help you improve your smile.
Composite veneers are manufactured in-office, using tooth-colored resin, and applied directly to the teeth. They are typically less expensive and quicker to apply than porcelain veneers, and they work well to cover up many aesthetic problems.
Porcelain veneers are custom-made, out of porcelain, to fit your teeth. These are typically made in a laboratory and sent to our office. We will apply them and ensure they fit your teeth as they should. Porcelain veneers generally last longer because of the stronger material, provide a more natural look, and can fix larger cosmetic issues such as very dark stained teeth or teeth positioned incorrectly.
What do dental veneers cost?
Veneers typically are not covered by insurance since they are considered a cosmetic procedure. However, costs can range depending on your dentist. As an average, traditional dental veneers range from $925 to $2,500 per tooth and no-prep dental veneers cost around $800 to $2000 per tooth.
Veneers vs. crowns—what’s the difference?
Dental veneers and dental crowns are both used for cosmetic purposes—to resolve chips, stains, discoloration, or crooked teeth. The main difference between the two is that dental crowns cover the entire tooth surface where veneers only cover the front portion of the tooth. Crowns (2 mm) are much thicker than veneers (1 mm) and the price for each is similar. Crowns provide additional support to damaged teeth where veneers do not. However, veneers are a much less invasive procedure and require less removal of the original tooth structure.
Veneers and crowns are both a great solution for patients looking to get a white, straight smile that looks and feels natural. If you’re interested, but unsure which option is right for you, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
