Veneers are thin porcelain laminates that are made to cover a tooth’s surface in order to help restore it to a healthy and proper smile. In dentistry, veneers is simply a thin layer of synthetic material deposited on top of a tooth. Veneers do help to protect the surface of a damaged tooth and enhance the overall aesthetic appearance of a beautiful smile. Veneers also are made to fit the shape and size of a patient’s natural teeth.Learn more by visiting Veneers-Mill Creek Dental
The cost of dental veneers ranges widely. Many insurance plans and discount programs cover the cost of porcelain veneers, but there may be limitations based upon the insurance provider or program. Some insurance plans require the dentist to provide a complete and full set of anesthesia for the procedure. If you choose to pay for the veneers out of pocket, make sure to research all options very carefully. Most insurance companies will offer a large price break for those patients who purchase porcelain veneers directly through them, but you may need to contact your plan to find out if they offer a price break for this service.
Veneers are also very sensitive to wear and tear. If you plan to regularly maintain your new smile, consider obtaining gum recontouring or bonding, which can also produce a thin, uniform look. In addition, you may want to consider thinning down your gums in preparation for the veneers. By avoiding chipping and cracking, you could extend the life of your porcelain veneers.
