What are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are extremely thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are placed over the front-facing surfaces of the teeth to cover cosmetic imperfections. The durable, natural-looking material is able to conceal a single damaged tooth or a mouthful of flaws. Generally, veneers are used to address teeth that are chipped, gapped, misaligned, misshapen, discolored, undersized, and much more!

The Process of Getting Veneers

Dental veneers can be placed in just two appointments. During your first visit, we will carefully examine your smile to make sure that it’s healthy enough to support veneers. Once this is concluded, we’ll prepare your teeth by removing a small amount f protective enamel to make room for the veneers. Impressions will then be taken of the teeth to be sent to the dental laboratory where your final veneers will be made.

In the meantime, you will be given a temporary set of veneers to protect your teeth and allow you to get used to what your veneers will feel like. Once your final restorations are complete, you will be able to return to the practice for the placement. Then you will be able to show off your improved pearly whites!

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

While you may want veneers, you may worry about their price. That’s a fair concern – you can’t get the shells if they’re outside your price range. Still, the cost of veneers actually varies by patient; you’ll need to consult Dr. Lumpkin for an estimate. Luckily, though, our office will take measures to make treatment affordable. We’ll even review our cosmetic services and payment options with you. To learn more, just keep reading or call us for details.

Cost vs. Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?

We at Dr. Lumpkin’s office offer high-quality veneers, but we also provide other cosmetic procedures. These other treatments have varying prices and effects, so you may want to review them before settling on care. To that end, consider the choices listed below:

  • Direct Bonding – By applying tooth-colored resin to it, direct bonding can correct your smile’s minor stains and cracks. While quick and cheap, though, the service is not long-lasting; it needs touch-ups every few years.
  • Teeth Whitening – Teeth whitening has the power to brighten your grin. To do so, it applies a special gel to your enamel that removes tooth stains. Our own office happens to provide whitening through in-office treatment and take-home kits. Either way, it has a moderate price and only affects tooth color.
  • Metal-Free Restorations – With our non-metallic crowns and fillings, we can both protect your teeth and hide their damage. Their materials are durable and tooth-colored, leading to seamless results.
  • Porcelain Veneers – Porcelain veneers are thin shells placed on the fronts of teeth. Typically, dentists use them to hide a wide range of smile flaws. They’re especially known for their versatility, as they improve tooth position, color, and shape. However, such quality also makes them expensive.

How to Make Veneers Affordable

Truthfully, dental insurance usually won’t cover veneers. Most plans consider the shells a luxury that’s “medically unnecessary.” Of course, there are occasional exceptions; some policies will cover veneers if they protect damaged teeth. In light of this fact, confirm your plan’s benefits before pursuing treatment. Our office staff will happily assist if you need help.

All that said, insurance isn’t the only way to make veneers affordable. Many practices offer unique financing options on behalf of their patients. If you find a good one, your veneer treatment could fit your budget.

Just look at Dentistry by Design, for example. Our office happens to work with CareCredit, a reputable third-party financier. They’d allow you to pay for veneers with low-interest monthly installments. That way, you could gradually cover the treatment cost.

As you can see, Dentistry by Design is ready and eager to provide budget-friendly veneers. So, go ahead and book a consult visit with us soon!
