Dental Veneers Pros & Cons
One of the main advantages of dental veneers is how versatile they are. You can fix cracked or chipped teeth, cover severe discoloration, correct uneven tooth length, replace worn down enamel, and adjust minor spacing issues. More benefits include how dental veneers match the appearance of natural teeth and how they’re resistant to stains.
Since a minimal amount of enamel removal is necessary to place the dental veneers, it’s a permanent procedure, which can be a pro or a con depending on how you look at it. That’s why we always make sure our veneers patients have all the facts before going through with the procedure. With the right care, they’ll last you around 10 to 20 years.
Cost of Dental Veneers
You may be completely sold on the possibilities with dental veneers, as long as the cost is right. We understand! Price is a big factor for many of our patients. Unfortunately, we can’t give you a cost estimate until we know more about your overall oral health and come up with your personalized treatment plan. There is so much customization that goes along with dental veneers so the price can vary widely depending on how many teeth are being treated and how extensive your makeover is.
All that being said, we will absolutely let you know the cost of your dental veneers treatment before ever beginning the procedure so you won’t face any surprises. We also do everything we can to help make dental veneers more affordable, including offering financing options.Contact Us
How long do veneers last?
On average, veneers last about 10-15 years when they’re properly cared for. Of course veneers, like natural teeth, are still susceptible to damage such as chips, cracks, and tooth decay from a lack of proper care. Professional cleanings every 6 months and yearly routine exams are highly recommended.
How to maintain porcelain veneers?
- Brush and floss two times a day to prevent dental problems such as gum disease and cavities. We recommend using a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste to care for your veneers. A good home care regimen will help extend the longevity of your veneers.
- Protect your veneers with a mouthguard or nightguard. Let our dental team know if you suffer from bruxism or play any sports that would potentially crack or chip your veneers. We can make a custom mouthguard to minimize the stress placed on your teeth while you sleep or play.
- Make sure to attend your follow-up evaluation after your veneers have been placed. Approximately one week after the placement of your veneers, you’ll be asked to return to our dental office for an examination and answer any questions you might have regarding your new smile.
- Avoid eating very hard foods like almonds or cracking shells with the front veneers.
Can porcelain veneers be stained with tea, coffee, and wine?
Porcelain veneers shouldn’t stain. However, if your teeth have a propensity to stain you should avoid foods or behaviors that lead to any discoloration. With proper oral hygiene and biannual dental exams and cleanings, your veneers should stay pearly white.Request Consultation
