A lot of us would like to improve our smile. Fortunately, there are many options for improving our smiles, such as whitening them, straightening them, or fixing their shape. With dental veneers, you can correct all of these problems and get a beautiful smile with one treatment.
Though veneers offer some great benefits, many people still don’t know much about them. Veneers remain in the realm of celebrities – though they shouldn’t. Once you have a better understanding of what veneers can do, you are more likely to visit your local dental office in Gilbert to get the treatment you need to finally get the smile you want.
Here’s your ultimate guide to Gilbert dental veneers and what they can do for you:
What are They?
Dental veneers are essentially covers for your natural teeth. They are usually made of porcelain, and they are designed to fit over your existing tooth.
Sometimes, the existing tooth has to be sanded or shaved down a bit to get the best fit. However, the amount is minimal and the patient does NOT require any anesthetic.
The veneers are bonded to the existing teeth, and they have a look just like natural teeth – except they are whiter, straighter, and the proper shape for your smile. Veneers look and function just like natural teeth.
What Problems Do Veneers Correct?
Dental veneers can correct just about any type of problem with your smile – except a misaligned bite. Dr. Peck will discuss the different options for correction with you, If you have problems with your bite.
Veneers can get your smile as bright and white as you want it. They can enlarge teeth to correct a gap or to fix a chip. They can fill out teeth that are pointed or small. They can round and straighten teeth that are uneven or crooked. They can correct spacing, the length of teeth, and much more. They can make your smile balanced and beautiful.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
One of the reasons that dental veneers have long been relegated to the realm of celebrities is that they can be quite expensive, particularly if you want to get a full set. Veneers can cost between $1,000 and $1,500 per tooth. You can bring down the cost of veneers by focusing on only those teeth that will show the most when you smile.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Veneers last a long time (20 + years), and you can ensure that they look good and last longer by taking proper care of them.
Proper care of veneers is the same as proper care of your teeth. You should brush and floss regularly, and you should avoid biteing with your front teeth into especially hard and sticky foods. If you grind your teeth, you will need to wear a custom fabricated mouth guard.
What Does Insurance Cover?
If there is a condition that veneers can treat, you may be able to get the cost covered by insurance. Talk to your dentist about the options.
If you are interested in improving your smile, talk to your Gilbert dentist about veneers and what they might be able to do for you. Dr. Peck will talk to you about the process so that you know what to expect, and will review the costs and financial options with you. Financing is available.
