Veneers are very thin, shell-like coverings for the teeth designed to look like your natural teeth. Dr. Jones bonds the veneer right to the surface of the tooth. He only uses porcelain veneers, which are more life-like and last longer than other materials -- between 10 to 15 years with proper care. They are shaped and sized to look just like your real teeth so they are virtually undetectable.
Veneers offer several benefits, including:
As long as your teeth and gums are in good health, veneers can be applied to the front of a tooth to create your new smile. Since veneers are bonded to the teeth, the teeth must be strong enough to hold the veneer and not at risk of gum disease or other oral health issues. Veneers can help cover up gaps, uneven teeth, slightly crooked teeth, and other flaws.
During an initial consultation with Dr. Jones, he determines how many teeth need veneers. Then, he preps each tooth, which might involve removing some enamel and reshaping the tooth. He takes impressions of your mouth and sends them to a lab to fabricate your veneers. Once received from the lab, Dr. Jones bonds the veneers to your teeth.
The entire veneer procedure can take up to two weeks with multiple appointments needed. Veneers are made to not only feel like your regular teeth but also match the shade of surrounding teeth for a flawless smile.
Since veneers are a cosmetic procedure, most insurance companies will not cover the cost. Still, many patients find veneers are relatively affordable and easy to work into their budget. Dr. Jones’ office offers in-house payment and financing options, which you can discuss during your consultation.
Veneers cover up flaws and imperfections and can transform your smile at any age.
