At Springfield Family Dental, one of our most popular cosmetic treatments is custom porcelain veneers.
With veneers, it’s possible to quickly change the way your smile looks, giving you almost instantly straight, white teeth. They’re perfect for aesthetic issues like:
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are strictly cosmetic restorations. Dr. Syed dictates the shape, size, and color of each one. The thin layers of porcelain are then permanently bonded to the front of the teeth in your “smile zone.” Once set, your teeth look completely different (even though your natural smile is hidden behind them.)
How Long is the Veneers Process?
Getting veneers in Springfield usually takes two visits total, after your initial consultation. We start by prepping your teeth and taking impressions, which our lab uses to handcraft each individual veneer. When they’re ready, Dr. Syed will try them on each tooth and bond them into place. As soon as you look in the mirror, you’ll see the “new” teeth you’ve been hoping for!
Factors Affecting Veneer Cost
The cost of dental veneers is dependent on how many veneers you need. Some people only need six in total, while other have wider smiles that show more teeth (requiring additional veneers.) Veneers usually are not placed on lower front teeth, except in unique circumstances.
Contraindications to Dental Veneers
Veneers are meant for healthy teeth. If you have gum disease or cavities, those infections will need to be addressed first. Teeth with significant structural damage may need a restoration such as a crown, rather than a cosmetic veneer. Similarly, large gaps or severe tooth misalignment might be better addressed with braces.
