Making that smile look new again with dental veneers

  • Many people are plagued with unsightly stains, chips or imperfections of their teeth. Nowadays, there is a way to take care of this problem without extensive dental repair. Veneers can be placed over these imperfections by your dentist and "Voila" you have a smile that anyone can be proud of. This can be done for far less money than placing a crown over that same imperfection.

    After the initial consultation, your dental professional will need two more visits lasting about 1 1/2 hours each. The cost can range from $900 to $2,500 per tooth and this will depend on the size and complexity of each veneer. These veneers last from 10 to 15 years if they are made of porcelain and 5 to 7 years if they are made of a composite. The composite is far less costly at about $250 per tooth.

    The first visit is where the dentist removes a layer of enamel and then fits a mold to prepare your permanent veneers. This process of preparing the veneer can take up to 2 weeks and so a temporary veneer is placed over the tooth until your second visit. Your second visit is when the dentist chemically cleans your teeth and any final changes to the color are done. Then dental cement is applied and the veneers are placed permanently over your natural teeth.

    Complications are the abnormal feel which is because the shape of your mouth has been changed. This is something that goes away with time. Also, this change can produce problems with speech. This can be dealt with by adjustments that your dentist can do. Sometimes there is sensitivity while the final bonding is occurring.One other potential problem is that, veneers can be damaged by those who suffer from bruxism, the grinding of teeth during sleep.

    An alternative treatment for teeth that are stained, damaged or have small alignment problems are crowns. A crown is far more costly and probably should be reserved for teeth that are too damaged for dental veneer treatment. As for discoloration, there is a bleaching process than can restore the whiteness that is desired.

    Whatever treatment which is best suited for your particular situation can be determined by speaking with your dental professional so that you may know all your options. It is nice to know that the veneer option can produce the desired affect with far less cost than crowns and a far more permanent affect than bleaching.
