Porcelain Veneers

Strength and Beauty for Your New Gorgeous Smile

 

Dental veneers are an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure. Many patients are in search of that perfect smile. Often, patients feel self-conscious about concerns with their teeth that could be corrected in just a couple of weeks! Whether you want flawlessly white teeth, to correct a chip, or to cover misshapen or crooked teeth, dental veneers could be the perfect cosmetic solution for you. Veneers can be used to cover gaps between teeth, or teeth that are worn down, chipped, broken, uneven, misaligned, discolored or have spaces between them.

 

Dental Veneers

 

 

Porcelain veneers are about the as thick as a contact lens and are custom-made to fit your teeth. Unlike a crown, a veneer only wraps around the front of the tooth instead of encasing the entire tooth. This means less tooth structure has to be removed before veneers are bonded in place. Many are concerned about the cost of dental veneers; However, NorthStar Dental has competitive prices and convenient payment options to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted!

What are dental veneers?

Veneers are a thin, porcelain cap that is bonded to a tooth to cover minor imperfections. Because dental veneers are made of a thin, high-grade porcelain material, minimal tooth structure needs to be removed before they can be placed. Dental veneers cover imperfections, like gaps between teeth, do not stain, and blend flawlessly with the rest of your smile.

What is the procedure for dental veneers?

Placing veneers is usually a two-step process. Once you have had your initial cosmetic evaluation, you will come in to have your teeth prepared for the veneers. Your dentist will take an impression at the beginning of your appointment that will be used to fabricate your temporary veneers. You will wear the temporary veneers while you await your permanent veneers. Once you are numb and comfortable, your dentist will remove just enough tooth structure to allow the dental veneers to fit in naturally.

 

Once your teeth are the correct shape for veneers, your dentist will take another impression. They will send the mold to our dental laboratory where your permanent veneers are made. The process takes about two weeks. After two weeks, the temporary veneers are removed, and your permanent veneers are bonded in place. You will have a new, beautiful smile!

They are an expensive cosmetic procedure in most cases, therefore most insurance plans will not cover any of the cost of dental veneers. While this holds true much of the time, it is important to check with your specific policy to see if they will or will not cover any portion of the cost.

Insurance Coverage

As mentioned above, because veneers are a cosmetic procedure, the cost of them are rarely covered by insurance. Occasionally if a tooth sustained a crack or if there is a concern due to an accident, you may be able to get insurance to cover a portion of the cost of dental veneers.
