Veneers are thin shells that are cemented to the top of your front teeth.
What are Veneers Made Of?
- Porcelain | This material looks the most like your natural tooth. Porcelain reflects light the way your natural teeth do. It also resists stains.
- Composite Resin | This material can be matched to the shade of your existing teeth.
What are Veneers Good For?
Veneers are a great way to improve the appearance of your teeth. Veneers correct gaps, chips, or uneven teeth. Veneers can also be used to address discolored teeth.
Why Should I Get Veneers?
Some of the benefits of veneers include:
- Stain Resistant | Porcelain veneers resist staining and can help your teeth look whiter longer.
- Improve Your Smile | You can smile with confidence when your teeth look bright, white, and even.
- Improve Self-Confidence | An improved smile can help you improve how you feel about yourself.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
The life expectancy of veneers is anywhere from seven to twenty years, on average. It mostly depends on care, maintenance, and the food that you eat.
Does My Insurance Cover Veneers?
What your insurance covers can vary from policy to policy. We are more than happy to go over your policy and discuss what is and is not covered, during your visit.
How Does It Work?
During your first appointment, Dr. Potts or Dr. Porter will examine your teeth to determine if veneers are right for you. At this point, we may need to take x-rays.
When you’re ready for your veneers, a thin layer of your enamel will be removed to roughen the tooth and make room for the thin shell. A mold is taken of your tooth and sent to a laboratory for creation. It can take several weeks for the veneer to be made.
Once the veneers arrive we will place the veneer, check for fit, and then cement them to the top of your tooth.
