Dental Veneers: What to Expect

Posted on 3/22/2021 by Northstar Dental
Dental Veneers: What to ExpectDental veneers are the ultimate way to change the shape, size, color, or length of your teeth. Dental veneers have become quite popular nowadays. Let's face it, who doesn't want a great set of teeth, so many people are wondering what to expect from them.

Here is a guide to help give you an idea of what you can expect from dental veneers.

What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are customized, wafer-thin shells that are constructed from composite resin or porcelain. They are made to fit over your teeth to improve their appearance. Dental veneers are quite helpful when it comes to changing the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth and improving their overall appearance.
They are especially helpful in fixing teeth that are stained or chipped. Even though the main purpose of dental veneers is mainly cosmetic, you can also have them fitted as a part of an overall dental makeover, which includes the treatment for gum disease.

How Much Do Dental Veneers Cost?

The cost of veneers varies mainly by the type of material you choose.
Composite veneers – This type of veneers is also known as direct veneers. Their coatings are applied to your teeth in a single dental visit, costing around $250 per tooth. The good news is that composite veneers can last about five to seven years before the need for replacement arises.

Porcelain veneers – Porcelain veneers also known as indirect veneers. These coatings are customized to fit your teeth, which is why they require at least two dental clinic visits. Since they are custom-made and require more effort, porcelain veneers cost around $1,000 per tooth, but last for at least 10 to 15 years.
