Why Choose Cappello Family Dental for Veneers?

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are all-ceramic, dental laboratory fabricated coverings for the front surfaces of the teeth that get permanently bonded into place. They function to completely alter the shape and color of the teeth, providing optimal aesthetics that enhance your smile. Veneers can be used to modify individual teeth but are often utilized on multiple teeth to transform entire smiles. 

Some of the aesthetic issues that veneers are often able to correct include:

The Veneers Process

The process for designing and placing veneers requires at least a few dental appointments. After your cosmetic dentist verifies that you are a good candidate for the treatment, your teeth will likely need to be prepared to support the veneers. This typically involves the remove of a very thin layer of enamel so the veneers will not look bulky or unnatural.

Once your teeth are ready, our team will take impressions of your teeth. Dr. Cappello will send the impression, along with detailed notes about the color, size, and shape of your veneers, to the laboratory that will fabricate them. Once your veneers are ready, they’ll be bonded to your teeth.

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

Want to get the smile of your dreams? You might be thinking about getting veneers. Before committing to anything, you likely want to know exactly how much it’ll cost. After all, you want to ensure you’re investing in something well worth the price. Our team at Cappello Family Dental wants you to get the right service for your smile, which is why we’ve decided to share the information below. By reviewing the financial aspects of our cosmetic procedures, you can decide if veneers are truly your best option!

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

There are many ways to achieve your dream look. Each cosmetic procedure differs greatly from one another in terms of cost, timelines, and life expectancies. During your consultation, Dr. Cappello will examine your mouth and inquire about your goals to determine which option is best for you.

Some of our most popular treatments include:

  • Dental Bonding – If you have minor dental imperfections, you may want to consider dental bonding. As a fast and cost-effective treatment, this treatment can fix small flaws with little hassle. However, the results don’t last very long, which means you’ll need to have it redone every few years.
  • Teeth Whitening – Professional teeth whitening can brighten your grin up by several shades at a mid-level price. Keep in mind that it’s a limited procedure that doesn’t affect the position or shape of your teeth.
  • Veneers – While this option is the most costly, it’s the only one capable of transforming several different aspects of your smile at once. If you need to boost the color, shape, or position of your teeth, this is the treatment you may want to consider.

How to Make Veneers Affordable

Veneers aren’t usually covered by insurance because they’re not considered “medically necessary”. But don’t worry – there are other ways to make this treatment affordable! At Cappello Family Dental, we offer third-party financing through CareCredit to help with the overall cost of veneers. It allows you to break the price up into smaller monthly installments, allowing you to stay within your budget. Best of all, these payment plans often come with little-to-no interest!

Veneers FAQs

Before you commit to getting veneers, you probably have some questions about the treatment. That makes sense because it’s a significant decision not to be made lightly. Fortunately, we’re here to erase any doubts from your mind so you can confidently move forward with the process. We’ve compiled a list of responses to common questions patients ask us about veneers. If you don’t see your question on the list below, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for an answer!

How Many Veneers Will I Need?

The “right” number of veneers varies depending on each person’s unique smile needs. The goal of this treatment is for all your visible teeth to match. Many people get 6-8 veneers to create a beautiful, symmetrical smile. Others might need as many as 10-12. Also, veneers can often benefit people who need to just cover a single cracked or broken tooth.

What Can I Eat with Veneers?

At the end of your initial visit with your cosmetic dentist, you’ll receive temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth while you wait for your permanent ones to be made. During this period, you’ll need to avoid hard foods like ice, raw fruits and vegetables, or candy because they can damage your temporary restorations. The good news is once your permanent veneers are in place, you won’t need to be quite as cautious anymore. However, it’s still a good idea to be careful when eating sticky, dark-colored, crunchy, hot, or cold foods and drinks. Plus, you’ll want to drink alcohol sparingly because it can weaken the bonding material holding your restorations in place.

How Are Veneers Different Than Crowns?

While veneers only attach to the front of teeth, crowns cover an entire tooth. Veneers are primarily used for cosmetic purposes or minor shape corrections when the tooth is mostly intact. In contrast, crowns protect worn or cracked teeth or restore those that have undergone a root canal. Also, veneers are only about one millimeter in thickness while crowns are usually twice as thick. Finally, veneers typically don’t show a gum margin after several years the way crowns often do.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Since veneers eventually require replacement, they’re not considered permanent. However, the process of getting them is irreversible. In preparation, our cosmetic dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel to ensure successful treatment. But unlike hair and nails, removed enamel will never grow back. That’s why when teeth are prepared this way, they will always need to be covered with veneers or crowns.
