What are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored material that are placed over the front surface of the teeth to mask imperfections. They are able to conceal all sorts of different cosmetic flaws that many people feel self-conscious about. They are often considered by people who have teeth that are:

The dental porcelain and ceramic that is used to make veneers closely resembles your natural tooth enamel, leaving you with a beautiful, healthy appearance! On top of that, these material are very strong and prevent stains and chips in the future.

The Process of Getting Veneers

The first step of this process is your initial consultation with Dr. Tindal. At this time, you will discuss the goals that you have for your smile and how veneers can help you to achieve the result you’re looking for. If you’re deemed to be a good candidate for the procedure, a small portion of your protective enamel will be removed from the front-facing surface of the teeth and an impression will be made. This impression is sent to a dental laboratory where your dental veneers will be crafted. In the meantime, we’ll provide you with a temporary set of veneers so that you can become accustomed to how your teeth feel once you receive your permanent ones. As soon as we get your veneers, you will be able to return to the practice, and they will be cemented into place. At this time, small adjustments can be made to give you a perfectly comfortable and natural-looking smile!

Cost VS Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?

There are a variety of cosmetic services that we have to offer. They each have varying price points, helping patients achieve their different goals. These treatment options include:

  • Teeth whitening: This treatment is one of the most cost-effective and quick cosmetic services available. It enhances the color of your teeth, removing stains, and brightening your smile up to 8 shades. However, it doesn’t treat the shape or position of your smile.
  • Braces: Braces straighten teeth for dramatic results and alignment, however they are usually expensive, costing between $5,000-$6,000. Not to mention, they can take anywhere from 12 to 28 months to complete. Plus, they do not address the color or shape of your teeth.
  • Direct bonding: This option is the quickest and most affordable – we use tooth-colored resin to reshape teeth, erasing flaws like small chips and gaps in the process. However, this will need to be redone every few years and can only be used on minor flaws.
  • Veneers: While veneers may not be the cheapest solution, they are the only cosmetic service that corrects all imperfections, making them the easiest way to completely transform your grin. In as little as two appointments, veneers in Sarasota correct the color, shape, and position of your teeth, saving you time while helping you achieve the best results.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

Frequently asked questions about porcelain veneers.

If you’re ready to invest in the power of a beautiful smile, porcelain veneers might be the solution for you. Although you’d like to enjoy their benefits for yourself, we know you have several questions before you’re ready to commit to the procedure. Dr. Tindal will take the time to address your concerns during your initial appointment. To help ease any apprehensions until your visit, here are the answers to a few of the most common questions he is asked about porcelain veneers.

How Many Porcelain Veneers Do I Need?

There isn’t any way to determine how many veneers you’ll need without first discussing your aesthetic goals. A porcelain veneer can be placed on a single tooth; however, Dr. Tindal often advises having them bonded to the front 2, 4, or 8 teeth because they are the most visible when you smile. It helps to ensure a seamless look, so no one will know your veneers aren’t your natural tooth structure. You can chew, smile, and speak feeling confident about your appearance.

Will I Need Gum Recontouring?

Porcelain veneers and gum recontouring are often performed together, but both treatments aren’t always necessary. Dr. Tindal might recommend gum recontouring to reveal more of your tooth’s structure for a larger bonding surface. This is often suggested for patients who have a “gummy smile.”

If you have an uneven gum line, Dr. Tindal might propose the additional procedure to deliver the best results possible after bonding your veneers. This ensures your teeth look proportionate. He’ll explain if you need gum recontouring during your initial consultation.

How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?

There isn’t a set fee for veneers because the cost is based on several factors, like the number of teeth you’re correcting. If you’re interested in fixing multiple issues, veneers can be the affordable choice because they can cover a variety of imperfections using one treatment. A member of our team will provide you with a custom estimate during your initial consultation. They’ll explain the fees associated with your plan and your payment options, like third-party financing.

Can I Use My Dental Insurance to Pay for Porcelain Veneers?

Although every policy differs, most dental insurance plans will not pay for porcelain veneers because they are considered elective. While it is rare, there are some exceptions. If a veneer is deemed necessary for your dental health, your insurance company might cover a portion of the cost. When applicable, our office will work on your behalf with your insurance carrier to maximize your annual allowance to lower the amount of any out-of-pocket expense.

How Can I Pay for Porcelain Veneers?

Our office strives to help you find the solutions you need to achieve the flawless smile you deserve. We accept traditional payment methods, as well as third-party financing. Based on your credit’s approval, you are given the funds you need for your treatment. You’ll repay the balance using a plan that accommodates your budget, so you don’t need to worry about any financial strain.
