Are you unhappy with your smile because of small flaws in the shape, alignment, or color of your teeth? Our Chesapeake dentists offer porcelain veneers and other cosmetic treatments that will make you proud to show off your smile. Call today to find out how veneers can restore the appearance of your otherwise healthy teeth.
Porcelain veneers offer a permanent solution to minor cosmetic dental issues. The veneer, which is made from thin layers of porcelain, attaches to the front of the tooth to correct common aesthetic issues, including:
The porcelain veneers procedure is efficient and painless. We start by making a mold of your teeth so that your veneers will match as closely as possible. The dentist may have to remove a small amount of the natural tooth enamel to ensure a proper fit. Once attached, veneers look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
When you leave our office with your new veneers placed, you will see an immediate difference in the appearance of your smile. The procedure is quick and efficient, allowing you to see fast results.
Veneers and crowns, which are sometimes referred to as porcelain teeth, are made from the same material. If you have generally healthy teeth but want to correct cosmetic imperfections, veneers are a good option. If you need to restore and reinforce teeth that are heavily damaged, a crown may be a better option since it fits over the entire tooth. Crowns are also preferred for back teeth since they accept most of the force when chewing. Your dentist will perform a comprehensive dental exam to determine which treatment option is best for your needs.
While you should not use your new teeth to open bottles or packages, veneers are similar in durability to natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are resistant to stains and can last for decades with normal brushing, flossing, and dental visits.
Each patient is unique, so porcelain veneers cost can vary from person to person. Your final porcelain veneers cost will be based on the type of veneer used, the number of veneers required, and the overall health of your teeth. We will provide you with an outline of your cost following your initial consultation. We also offer various payment plans to help you manage the expense.
Depending on your specific dental issues, you may be a candidate for Lumineers®, which are ultrathin veneers that do not require the removal of enamel.
