Porcelain veneers can completely change the look of your smile! Also known as dental veneers, these are one of the most exciting options available in cosmetic dentistry.
What Are Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover the surface of your teeth, covering up gaps, discoloration, and chips. Typically, porcelain veneers are applied to the front, upper 2-8 teeth, and they can change the shape, length, and size of your teeth. Thanks to porcelain veneers, it’s possible to have a “movie star” smile that looks youthful, healthy, and natural.
How Long Do Veneers Last
Because of improved materials, porcelain veneers are more durable than ever, potentially lasting 10-15 years! How long porcelain veneers will last depends on your dental and medical history, diet and habits, and more. In a free cosmetic dentistry consultation, we can talk to you about your specific situation.
Veneers Vs Crowns
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell that’s bonded to the front of your tooth, whereas a porcelain crown covers your entire tooth. Which is right for you? That depends on the size, position, and health of your tooth, among other factors.
Can You Whiten Veneers
Luckily, unlike tooth enamel, porcelain doesn’t readily absorb stains (from coffee, tea, etc). If, at some point, however, your veneers don’t match the natural color of your other teeth – perhaps because you’ve whitened your other teeth – you’ll need to get your porcelain veneers replaced. Before you consider teeth whitening (with a take-home kit or in-office whitening), check with us first.
Does Dental Insurance Cover Veneers
Veneers are considered an elective, cosmetic procedure, and therefore, most dental insurance plans won’t pay for porcelain veneers. Typically, though, you can use money from your health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA) to cover the cost of porcelain veneers.
