3 Facts about Veneers

Dental veneers, a common cosmetic dental procedure, are a great way you can enhance and restore your smile. Our team is going to give you an inside looks at some of the facts surrounding dental veneers to help in your decision for a beautiful smile.

Dental veneers don’t require a lot of special treatment

After you have a veneer placed on your tooth, your dentist will typically request a follow up appointment to ensure the veneer is functioning properly. They may also recommend you avoid foods that can easily stain the veneer, like colored sauces or candies, tea and coffee. You should still maintain good oral hygiene practices like brushing twice a day and flossing as well as visiting your dentist every six months for cleanings.

Dental veneer cost can vary

Depending on where you live, your insurance and the extent of your procedure, dental veneers can cost anywhere from $500 to $1,300 per tooth. This cost typically isn’t covered by dental insurances, but it may still be a good idea to check with your insurance provider before ruling out veneers.

There are options to consider

Veneers are made from porcelain or composite materials, each varying in cost. Typically porcelain veneers stain less than composite and resemble the natural tooth’s appearance. Composite veneers a thinner and require less removal of the tooth’s surface.
