If you want to change your smile, think dental veneers
Many people feel self-conscious about stained teeth, uneven teeth, chipped teeth, broken teeth, or misaligned teeth. So much that they hide their smile or avoid social situations.
With today’s cosmetic dentistry and veneers, you can have a perfect smile with a natural look that you have always wanted.
What Are Teeth Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain veneer or composite veneer that are placed over the front surface of your teeth. They look like natural teeth and allow you to change the position of your teeth in one appointment, referred to as instant orthodontics, and get the same effects of teeth whitening.
Are veneers the same as a dental crown?
Both look like a natural tooth, but the are not the same. A dental crown wraps around your tooth, and a veneer just covers the front of the tooth.
How long does a new veneer last?
As long as you maintain good oral hygiene, veneers will last you many, many years.
What are the different types of Veneers?
Porcelain Veneers: These are made of thin, custom-made shells for your tooth. They are strong, durable, and are resistant to staining. They maintain their bright, white appearance for a long time.
Composite Veneers: Made of composite resin material and can be placed in a single visit on your tooth. These are not as strong or long-lasting. Composite veneers are also more prone to staining.
Overall, the choice between porcelain and composite material will depend on the individual patient’s needs and preferences, as well as desired outcome.
How many appointments do I need for Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers are typically done in two appointments. The first day you will have temporary veneers placed on your prepared teeth. These veneers can be used as a trial to make sure you like the looks before the second appointment where the final porcelain veneers will be placed.
Can you do Same-Day Porcelain Dental Veneers?
We do offer same-day veneers using CAD/CAM technology, which uses computer imaging to create custom veneers in a single visit.
How much do veneers cost in Washington?
The cost of dental veneers can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of veneers chosen and the number of teeth being treated. In Vancouver, WA, the cost of dental veneers can range from $800 to $2,500 per tooth.
It’s important to note that dental insurance typically does not cover the cost of cosmetic procedures such as dental veneers.
We do offer many financing options that help make the cost more manageable.
Where do I start?
Veneers are not a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s important to discuss all available options to determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs and goals.
With the right treatment plan, you can achieve the smile you’ve always wanted and feel more confident and self-assured.
