What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that can be layered onto the teeth, altering the apparent shape and color of your teeth. This allows them to easily repair cracks, chips, discoloration, misalignment, and a host of other issues in one fell swoop.

Veneers are designed to perfectly emulate natural teeth, giving your smile a realistic but beautiful appearance. Their durability and stain-resistance also mean that you can enjoy your new teeth for a long time to come.

The Process of Getting Veneers

As with any cosmetic procedure, the first order of business will be to talk with you about what kinds of issues you have with your smile. This will allow us to recommend a cosmetic treatment best suited to you.

Once we’ve settled on veneers, we’ll prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of your enamel. This will allow the veneers to sit flush with the rest of your smile. We’ll follow up by taking sophisticated digital impressions of your smile, designing your cosmetics and allowing you to preview your results.

These digital designs will be sent to a lab where they will be milled over the course of a few weeks. During this time, you’ll be furnished with a set of temporary veneers to protect your smile. We’ll give you a call once we receive your cosmetics and will apply them to your teeth. After just two appointments, you’ll leave our office with a smile you can hardly believe!

Benefits of Veneers

Veneers are one of the most powerful cosmetic treatments that there is. Their ability to freely change the shape and color of your smile allows them to correct for all kinds of issues, or several of them at once. They can do all this within just two appointments, yet the results can last for up to 15 years if maintained well.

This is due to the stain-resistant and durable porcelain that they’re commonly made from. They also closely resembles enamel, making them so subtle that it’ll be difficult to tell you’ve had dental work done.

With all this going for them, it’s easy to see why veneers are so popular. If you want to experience what they can do firsthand, give us a call today!

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

Getting veneers is not a “one-size-fits-all” treatment. Everyone’s smile is different, so the cost can vary quite a bit depending on the number of veneers you are getting and other factors, like the current health of your smile. During your consultation with us, we will go over the financial aspects of your treatment in detail, including the exact cost you can expect and your payment options. Until then, here are some things for you to take into consideration.

Cost vs. Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?

Veneers may seem like the perfect solution for your smile at first, but the truth is that there are numerous cosmetic dental options out there that serve a variety of different purposes at different price points. Here are some of the most common ones that we offer at Baytown Gentle Dental:

  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding: Cosmetic dental bonding is generally the most affordable cosmetic option. It is great for repairing and masking minor imperfections, like small chips and gaps. This usually lasts a few years before needing to be replaced.
  • Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening can be completed quickly and is more affordable than most cosmetic options. However, it only addresses the color of the teeth – not the shape or position.
  • Gum Recontouring: If you feel that your smile is too “gummy,” gum recontouring may be able to help by revealing more of your beautiful, white enamel. The cost of this treatment varies depending on how much gum tissue needs to be reshaped.
  • Veneers: Veneers aren’t the most affordable cosmetic option out there, but they are the easiest way to transform numerous aspects of your smile at the same time. This includes the color, shape, and sometimes the position.

How to Make Veneers Affordable

Veneers are not typically covered by dental insurance because they are usually considered to be an elective treatment. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you will be left completely on your own. We are happy to accept payments through CareCredit and Lending Club! These third-party financing companies can split the cost of your treatment into manageable monthly installments with little to no interest.
