Dental Veneers - Improving Your Face Value
Dr. Todd Gifford - Gifford Family Dentistry - Dental INSIDER -
Veneers are an excellent option for patients seeking a straighter, whiter smile.
Improvements in dental materials now allow dentists to deliver the shape and shade you always wanted. This cosmetic dental procedure requires minimal reduction of natural tooth structure and is long-lasting. With proper homecare and regular professional checkups, your new veneers could last a lifetime.
The most common problems causing a veneer to fail are tooth decay on the natural tooth structure supporting the veneer and porcelain chipping in patients that clench or grind during the day.
In many cases, these problems can be resolved without the need to replace the veneer with simple smoothing or a patch filling. If the damage is more extensive and a veneer requires replacement, only the single veneer often needs to be replaced.
The process includes an initial consultation, approval of your final smile design, the actual treatment appointment and the delivery of the final veneers.
Veneers are comparable in cost to crowns. As an elective procedure, traditional dental insurance usually does not help with the cost. At your initial consultation visit, your custom treatment plan will be created and all costs will be communicated prior to any work being done – no surprises.
