Learn more about veneers and how they can make you feel more confident in your smile.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are covers for your teeth. Just as you might change a cushion cover to refresh a pillow or sofa, you can use veneers to hide cosmetic problems with your teeth, such as discoloration, gaps or chips.  

You may not have gotten to choose the teeth you were born with, or life may have left you with teeth that look a little worse for wear. Veneers provide a long-lasting way to transform your smile.

Should You Get Veneers?

Veneers can make your smile look great, but it's important to remember that they're a cosmetic treatment. Veneers may be the right option if your concerns about your teeth are mainly on the surface. If you have cavities or other tooth problems, talk to us about treatment options that can help restore the health of your tooth while improving its looks.

You may be a good candidate for veneers if you have any of the following cosmetic concerns:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Small teeth
  • Gaps between your teeth
  • Old dental work

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

The cost of veneers depends on a few factors, such as the number of teeth you want to fix and the type of materials used to make the veneer. If you're concerned about the price, talk to us. We'll recommend options that will work with your budget.

Although veneers cost more than other cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening, the results they provide also last much longer. Veneers are a permanent fix for your cosmetic teeth problems. You won't have to replace them any time soon.

Benefits of Veneers

If you're ready to refresh your smile, veneers offer multiple benefits:

  • Made for you: Each veneer fits your teeth, creating a unique smile. The custom nature of veneers also means they're comfortable to wear. You won't even feel them.
  • Stain resistant: While natural teeth pick up stains and discoloration from foods and drinks, the material veneers are made from is resistant to stains. You don't have to worry about your smile becoming discolored.
  • Long-lasting brightness: Natural teeth become dull and lose color as you age. That's not the case with veneers. They're made from porcelain, which stays bright and never fades. 
  • Natural looking: Veneers look like your natural teeth, only better. Our dentists professionally craft and place them on your teeth, so it's nearly impossible to tell which is the veneer and which is your tooth. People might notice that your smile looks great but won't notice the veneers.
  • Quick process: You only need a few visits to our practice to transform your smile. Veneers are pain-free and quick.

What Happens When You Get Veneers

Getting veneers is a two-part process. During the first part, we prep your teeth for the veneers. We'll discuss your goals and examine your teeth to determine if veneers are a good choice. 

We then prepare the teeth's surface by removing some of the enamel. Next, we take an impression of the teeth, which the lab will use to create a custom-fit, perfectly sized veneer. We'll work with you to help you choose a color for your new teeth that looks natural and attractive.

We'll send the impressions to a special dental lab to precision craft your veneers. After a few weeks, the lab will finish making the veneers and ship them to us. We'll review them with you, then permanently bond them to your teeth.

You'll leave the dental office with a bright, new smile!
