For a wide variety of tooth imperfections, porcelain veneers can often serve as the right solution. Veneers can help improve a tooth’s structural integrity as well as provide a complete cosmetic overhaul. The long list of benefits you can expect is listed below:
Porcelain veneers often produce results that can last between 10 to 15 years. While made of thin strips of porcelain, these pieces are durable and resistant to staining. Because the veneers can be shade-matched to your surrounding teeth, the finished results are incredibly natural looking. Porcelain veneers are designed with the intent of improving your smile’s appearance while avoiding a fake or unnatural look.
While often comprised of the same material, veneers and crowns are used in distinctly different situations. Porcelain veneers utilize thin strips of porcelain to improve the appearance and some functionality while covering just the front and sides of the tooth. Porcelain crowns are used for more severe situations where there is significant damage present. By encapsulating the entire tooth, crowns can provide improved function, prevent further damage, and enhance the overall look of your smile. Both treatments are viable options and our team will be able to determine which is best for you at your initial consultation.
The cost of porcelain veneers will likely be different for each patient and their varying needs. The type of veneers chosen will also need to be considered as the selection will impact the overall price as well. Our team can go over financial information and insurance coverage during the initial consultation.
