Our patients claim their veneers are not recognizable from natural teeth, as the tooth color can be designed individually. This makes veneers ideal for optimizing the shape, function, and aesthetics of a tooth, especially for the front teeth and for dazzling memorable smile!
Did you know veneers protect the tooth nerve against mechanical, chemical and temperature-related stimulation? They have great strength and durability, also Plaque can’t adhere to the ceramic surface. Veneers are the best option for discolored, chipped or misshapen teeth.
Our ceramic veneers have excellent biocompatibility. We also have plastic veneers (tooth-colored plastic shells that can be removed at any time). Choose from the multitude of colors, shapes, and functions – composite or porcelain.
Let’s explain composite veneer as we get this question every day from our patients. Composite veneer can be done in one single visit. It will be prepared and applied by the dentist right on the premises. It’s less expensive than porcelain and it’s easier to repair.
Ask us on your next visit and we’ll tell you if you are a good candidate for composite veneer.
They look like a false nail and are made in the laboratory for a longer lasting result. They don’t change color over time (attention coffee lovers) and they have the bright, slightly translucent appearance of natural teeth.
We’ll work with you to determine dimensions of porcelain veneers that will go with your face and then we’ll decide how much tooth structure needs to be altered if any. Whenever possible we opt for Prepless veneers to preserve maximum tooth structure, they are carefully hand-waxed to shape the ideal contours.
Ask us about Snap-On veneers if you don’t want to commit to a long-term solution.
Last but not least, Porcelain veneers are more expensive than the composite one. Also, traditional porcelain veneers can last 10 to 15 years where composite veneers last between five and seven years. Call us today and come over for a consultation if you need more information or help to decide which method suits your budget and overall dental health.
