Basic Facts about Porcelain Veneers
  1. Porcelain is a stronger more durable material than composite veneers. The price may be higher, but the longevity makes up for the difference. Porcelain lasts much longer, sometimes double that of other materials.
  2. Veneers are used to change the outlook of the patient’s visible smile. Veneers will change the color, size, shape and slight alignment troubles.
  3. Many insurance companies will not cover the cost of the veneers because it is considered a cosmetic procedure. Talk to your dentist about possible dental financing options.
  4. The cost of veneers increases with the amount of teeth requiring service.
  5. Veneer treatment consists of at least two visits with the first visit dedicated to tooth prep and impressions with placement at the final visit.
  6. A healthy brushing and flossing routine will support the longevity of porcelain veneers. Porcelain is strong similar to enamel able to crush through food. Any action that may twist the laminate should be avoided (i.e. opening nut shells or biting into candied apples).
  7. Cosmetic dentistry has made technological leaps and bounds in the last 30 years. Digital imaging systems offer same day treatments that provide a natural looking improved smile. Cosmetic dentistry is more of an art form rather than a science and experience makes the difference in the finished look of a cosmetic procedure.
