Why Choose Seahurst Park Dentistry for Veneers?

What Are Dental Veneers?

Like other cosmetic dental treatments, veneers are designed to correct common dental imperfections, like minor misalignment, noticeable chips, and permanent discoloration. To do this, thin shells of porcelain (and other high-quality, lifelike, and durable dental materials) are crafted to the ideal shape, size, and shade. By adhering them to the front-facing surface of your teeth, your smile will now be bright, balanced, and seamless.

The Process of Getting Dental Veneers

The first step is your consultation with Dr. Thomas (which is where he will determine if you’re a candidate, learn all about your smile goals, and solidify the details of your treatment). The second step is preparing your teeth for veneers. This involves removing a small portion of your enamel, taking impressions of your teeth, and placing a temporary set of veneers on your teeth. From there, we will send the impressions and veneers specifications to the lab artisans that will craft your final veneers. This typically takes a few weeks, but the moment they are ready, you’ll come back to our office to have them bonded securely in place. Then, the whole process will be complete!

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

Veneers come with various advantages when it comes to enhancing your smile. However, it’s best to know how much the procedure will cost before committing to anything. During your initial consultation, our team will walk you through what to expect from the treatment as well as the overall price. Additionally, we can review the other cosmetic dental services available so that you know all your opportunities for improving your teeth. We’ll also discuss your financing options to help keep more money in your pocket.

Cost vs. Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?

Most patients who are interested in cosmetic dental treatment typically want to change the size, shape, or color of their pearly whites to conceal some or many dental imperfections in their smiles. With veneers, you’ll be able to address a wide variety of flaws simultaneously, and the results can last many years before needing replacements. That said, here are some of our other popular cosmetic services and how they compare with veneers:

  • Teeth whitening: By using a custom-made at-home whitening kit with special bleaching agents, you can effectively brighten your teeth in as little as two weeks. This treatment is much more affordable than veneers, but it won’t affect the size or shape of your smile. Your results will also only last around several months to a few years with proper care.
  • Dental bonding: With composite resin, our team can provide a versatile method of masking multiple flaws with dental bonding. This procedure is similar to veneers as you’ll be able to change the size, shape, color, and spacing of your teeth. However, you’ll likely need to get touchups after several years, whereas veneers can go for 15 years or more with minimal maintenance.
  • Clear aligners: If you’ve always wanted a straighter smile, then clear aligners may be a viable option for you. Not only are your clear trays more comfortable and can provide a quicker process compared to traditional braces, but others won’t even notice you’re wearing them unless you say so. Still, this service won’t alter the color, size, or shape of your teeth.
  • Veneers: While this method costs more than the other services, your results can make them a worthwhile investment. Veneers completely upgrade any compromised teeth, covering up cracks, chips, stains, and gaps to create your dream look. You can also expect to enjoy your results for well over a decade before needing replacements.

How to Make Veneers Affordable

Similar to other cosmetic dental services, veneers won’t usually get coverage from dental insurance companies. This treatment isn’t seen as essential care, so you might have to explore alternative ways to afford your procedure. Fortunately, our team has a membership plan that can give you significant discounts on multiple treatments, including veneers. Currently, we’re offering 6-month plans that come with zero interest, that way you can undergo the procedures you’re interested in without having to break the bank!
