What is the cost of placing porcelain veneers?
Patients who visit Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry with concerns about the appearance of their natural teeth are often educated on the advantages of using porcelain veneers. Veneers are often considered when patients seek a more permanent option than composite resin bonding. Though they may cost more, they can last a decade or longer with proper home and professional care.
What are veneers?
Dr. Brianne Luu describes veneers as ceramic facings, custom-made to bond over the front of the teeth to change their appearance. These facings are:
- Natural looking
- Affordable cost
Veneers are best used on the anterior teeth, the teeth near the front of the mouth that can have a negative impact on the overall look of the smile. These teeth can become problematic with chips, permanent staining, and gaps. Veneers disguise these issues quickly with a simple restoration.
What is the cost of a veneer?
Veneers can range in cost, depending on how many are needed and what preparations are required prior to placement. To get an accurate quote regarding the cost of veneers, patients must schedule an appointment with Dr. Brianne Luu.
How are veneers placed?
Once patients have decided to move forward with veneers, they undergo preparations. This includes reducing the enamel on the front of the teeth. Veneers require minimal removal of tooth structure, only removing from .7-1.0mm of the natural enamel. Impressions are made and used to fabricate the veneers, which are then bonded in place. The entire process takes approximately two weeks.
