Understanding Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin, tailor-made porcelain coverings that lay on top of an existing tooth to improve its appearance. Dental Veneers can correct many types of cosmetic problems including covering discolored teeth, lengthening teeth, mending chips, hiding spaces between teeth, or just refreshing your smile. A small portion of your tooth is first smoothed away to accommodate the veneer then  they are then bonded directly to your tooth/teeth. Veneers can be colour matched to a patient’s existing teeth so that the effect is natural giving an aesthetically pleasing appearance.

When to Consider Dental Veneers

Dental veneers can be used to fix the following dental conditions:

  • Discoloured teeth
  • Worn down teeth
  • Broken and/or chipped teeth
  • Crooked, misaligned, or strangely shaped teeth
  • Gaps in teeth that would benefit from closing the space

Dental Veneer Cost and Advantages

Depending on the type of veneer you are considering and the complexity of the procedure involved, the costs can vary greatly, from a few hundred dollars to several thousand. However, at our clinic you’ll find that the price required for getting dental veneers is surprisingly low, compared to what most local dentists have to offer. We also offer patients finance programs and affordable payment plans.

Additional factors that could influence the cost also include the number of teeth that need to be treated and the type of dental insurance you have. You can also consider several alternatives to veneers, including orthodontic treatments, tooth reconditioning, teeth whitening procedures and dental bonding.

Some of the advantages of dental veneers include:

  • Teeth look natural
  • Dental veneers are stain resistant
  • Dark teeth can appear whiter
  • Dental veneers can strengthen your teeth
