What are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin sheaths of layered ceramic, which add strength to your teeth. The restorations fit over your existing tooth structure like tiny shells, instantly upgrading your smile from dull to dazzling. At Smile by Design of Virginia Beach, we use veneers to whiten, straighten, and correct flaws. Not only are they highly stain-resistant, but they’re translucent and resemble healthy, white tooth enamel.

The Process of Getting Veneers

We’ll begin your smile transformation process with a veneer consultation. At this initial visit, our cosmetic dentists review your goals, answer your questions, and discuss your concerns. Once we’ve determined that you’re a good candidate for veneers, we’ll schedule you in for the first phase of treatment.

We have the experience and training to ensure your new porcelain veneers will compliment your facial features, your hair color, and your eye color. Designing custom porcelain veneers isn’t just about creating the right kind of teeth, but also creating veneers that fit your look—from your skin tone to the symmetry of your face. Your porcelain veneers must meet our exacting standards, so we work with the finest dental labs that utilize modern materials for natural-looking veneers.

At your first treatment visit, we’ll prepare your teeth and take impressions of them. Then, a ceramist at one of our trusted dental labs will handcraft your veneers using the molds and photos we provide them with.

Once the veneers are made, we’ll call you back to the office for their placement. One of our cosmetic dentists will make any needed adjustments and take the time to ensure your veneers fit well and look great. After that, we’ll permanently bond the veneers to the fronts of your teeth. You’ll be ready to show off your brand-new smile that same day!

Cost VS Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?

At Smile By Design of Virginia Beach, we’re proud to offer numerous services at different price points to help you achieve exactly the look you want without breaking the bank. Let’s review some of our most popular cosmetic services and how their costs stack up to the price of veneers:

  • Invisalign – Veneers are able to correct slightly crooked or gapped teeth, but moderate to severe orthodontic issues will need to be treated with an option like Invisalign. These clear aligners will cost you more time and money than veneers, but they’ll give you a healthier bite and more aligned smile.
  • ZOOM! Teeth Whitening – One of the fastest and most affordable ways to dramatically improve your smile is with one of our professional teeth whitening treatments. In as little as an hour, we can take years of stains off your smile and give you a dazzling set of pearly whites. However, teeth whitening will naturally only change the color of your teeth, not their shape or size.
  • Dental Bonding – Dental bonding is a great way to correct minor chips, stains, and gaps in the teeth. This treatment is fast, easy, and cost-effective, plus it addresses many of the issues that veneers can as well. However, dental bonding can only fix very small flaws and will need to be redone every few years.
  • Veneers – While veneers may not be the cheapest option for fixing up your smile, they are certainly the most comprehensive! These thin shells of dental porcelain can completely redesign the appearance of one or more teeth that have a variety of different problems. As an added bonus, dental porcelain is resistant to stains and chips, and will likely last for 15 years or more!

Are Veneers Permanent?

To have your veneers placed, a thin layer of enamel will need to be removed. Since enamel cannot grow back on its own, veneers are considered a permanent treatment. Fortunately, they’re made of high-quality dental porcelain, which is well-know for its durability. Not only does it resist stains and chipping, but it is virtually indistinguishable from natural, healthy enamel! With the proper care, you can enjoy your veneers for 15-30 years before needing to replace them.

Can I Get Cavities If I Get Veneers?

The good news is that your veneers themselves won’t be vulnerable to tooth decay. However, since they only cover the front-facing portion of your teeth, they don’t offer full protection from cavities. If you don’t continue to brush and floss regularly, then cavity-causing plaque can build up on the back of your teeth and eat through the enamel there. Cavities will also still be able to form between your teeth, and in older veneers, plaque can slip under them and cause decay. Should this happen, we may need to remove your veneer in order to treat the cavity underneath!

How Many Veneers Will I Need?

Veneers are an individualized treatment that is custom-made for each tooth. We can craft as many or as few as you need to get the exact results you’re looking for. That being said, we’ve found that the most seamless results are usually achieved with pairs of veneers on the front two, four, six, or eight teeth. It all just depends on what your goals are for your smile! During your consultation, we can give you a preview of what your results will look like with our virtual smile design technology, so you can be confident in the results before you even begin treatment!

Are Veneers Expensive?

As a cosmetic service, veneers are rarely covered by dental insurance. While that means the cost of veneers will be primarily out-of-pocket, we believe that a beautiful, confident smile should be a financially achievable goal for everyone! Not only do we offer a variety of cosmetic services at different price points, but we also offer CareCredit financing to help make your treatment more affordable. This third-party company offers low- to no-interest payment plans that act similarly to a credit card. Qualifying patients can choose a plan that works best for them and breaks up the cost of their veneers into smaller payments over the coming months or years.
