Below are some of the frequently asked questions we hear about our affordable porcelain veneers:
What are porcelain veneers, and what do they do?
Porcelain veneers are a type of dental restoration used to improve the appearance of teeth. They are made from a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the tooth.
Why might a patient consider porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers can also be used to improve the overall appearance of your smile. They can make your teeth look whiter and brighter, and they can make your smile look more symmetrical.
What issues can porcelain veneers correct?
These restorations are perfect for addressing a variety of dental problems, including:
- Teeth that are discolored or stained
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Teeth that are misshapen or uneven
- Gaps between teeth
- Teeth that are worn down
What is involved in obtaining a porcelain veneer?
The process of getting porcelain veneers usually involves two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab. You will also have a consultation with the dentist to discuss what you would like to change about your smile.
The second visit is when the veneers are actually put in place. The dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth so that the veneers can fit comfortably. The veneers will then be bonded to your teeth using dental adhesive.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers typically last between five and 10 years. However, they may require replacement sooner if patients fail to care for them correctly. They can break if patients chew on strong or hard objects such as pens or ice cubes, so it is critical to be aware of how you are caring for your teeth and veneers when it comes to their longevity.
Does dental insurance cover porcelain veneers?
Most dental insurance plans do not cover the cost of porcelain veneers. However, many dentists offer financing options that make this restoration more affordable. The dentists at StarBrite Dental want to make cosmetic treatments attainable for all patients regardless of insurance coverage status.
