If you feel uncomfortable showing off your smile because your teeth are discolored, small, chipped, or unevenly spaced, porcelain veneers can transform your smile. At Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry, our custom-made veneers can correct cosmetic tooth imperfections and give you the power to design your new smile.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of highly durable porcelain that we bond to the front sides of your teeth. A veneer can restore a single tooth imperfection, and multiple veneers can be placed on your teeth for a complete smile makeover. Porcelain veneers are a great way to achieve a flawless, confident smile!
Permanently Make Over Your Smile
One of the main benefits of veneers is that they’re a permanent solution for obtaining your dream smile. Before we place your veneers, we remove a layer of enamel to ensure that they sit flush with your other teeth and blend in seamlessly. This preparation is vital for making sure your veneers look and feel great for years to come.
The Veneers Process
The veneers process usually takes place in three visits.
- Your first visit to our office will consist of a consultation, examination, and X-rays. After we examine your smile, we’ll discuss your goals and desired end results.
- Once we’ve decided that veneers are right for you, you will come in for a second appointment where we’ll shape the teeth the veneers will go on by removing some enamel. Enamel removal helps your veneers properly adhere to the surface of your teeth. We’ll take a mold of your teeth and send it to the lab where they will construct your veneers. While your veneers are in the making, we’ll fit you for temporary veneers until we receive your permanent ones.
- For your final visit, we will bond your custom-made veneers to your teeth and check the fit. We’ll send you home with a set of guidelines to help you keep your veneers in good condition.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
The price of veneers depends on the number you’re getting and your overall dental health. During your smile consultation, we’ll design a personalized treatment plan and go over your expected out-of-pocket costs. Our practice offers a variety of financial options and works with you to get a smile you love!
