If your smile is not quite what you want it to be and you have been meaning to get around to talking about dental veneers, now is the time. If you find yourself with an upcoming special event and want to take action now, veneers may be the answer.Weddings, reunions, and special vacations all mean a lot of photos. Veneers may provide you with that camera-ready smile that you’ll be proud of. This article will give you tips on how veneers can improve your smile.
What is it Like Getting Veneers?
Veneers really only take a few appointments until your new smile is ready. Your Gentle Dental Family Care doctor will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you are healthy enough for veneers. Your exam will most likely include:
- Consultation and planning
- Impressions and models
- Bite evaluation
- Jaw Evaluation
If your teeth are worn from clenching and grinding, you may also need a night guard to protect your new smile once treatment is complete.
At your consultation, your Gentle Dental Family Care dentist will discuss your hopes for your new smile. If you want an overall brighter appearance to your teeth, we may recommend whitening to get started since your veneers will be matched to your natural teeth color for a uniform result.
Your Gentle Dental Family Care dentist will design your new veneers to match your facial structure and natural smile line. Your hair color, skin tone, and gender all play a role in smile design. We can look at pictures and discuss smiles you admire.
How Many Veneers Will I Need?
When you smile, we will look at how many teeth show naturally. This varies from person to person but usually results in about 6-8 veneers for the best result. Of course, if you just have one or two teeth that you want to improve, we can discuss that option as well.
The best way to learn about dental veneers is to contact one of our Gentle Dental Family Care office’s to arrange a consultation that will give you a chance to speak with one of the doctors in-depth about improving your smile.
How Much Will My Porcelain Veneers Treatment Cost?
Determining the exact cost of your porcelain veneers procedure requires a consultation with your Gentle Dental Family Care doctor. During your appointment, they will have the opportunity to thoroughly evaluate the course of treatment that can best achieve your goals. Your personalized plan will detail the following factors:
- Number of porcelain veneers required
- Type of porcelain material selected
- Fabrication technique chosen
- Speed of fabrication
- Necessary dental treatments to improve oral health (prior to veneer placement)
- Degree of tooth preparation needed to accommodate the veneers
- Any additional treatments (such as gum re-contouring) that may enhance the quality of veneer results
