What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells that we bond to the enamel of your tooth, covering up imperfections and protecting your natural tooth. They become one with the natural substructure of your tooth. Veneers function and look just like natural teeth. There is no metal substructure inside our veneers. We custom-design the veneer to match the character, shape, and shade of your teeth, and they do not stain. Because they are very strong, you can use your veneer teeth as usual without worrying about the veneer breaking.
What do veneers treat?
If you have one of the following dental concerns, you could be a candidate for dental veneers:
- Teeth that are the wrong size
- Worn-down teeth
- Enamel discrepancies that cause your teeth to look dark
- Teeth that are discolored due to genetics or medications
- Too much space between teeth
- Broken teeth
Permanent Veneers at Smile Solutions of Maine
At our dental offices in Waterville and Winthrop, we offer the following types of cosmetic veneers:
- Feldspathic veneers. These are the most esthetic veneers that we can use, as they mimic the natural tooth structure of your other teeth. Our lab technicians can create a natural result that most people cannot detect.
- Other types of porcelain veneers. There are multiple types of porcelain veneers that we can use depending on where it will go in your mouth, the characterization we are trying to create, and the thickness that we need.
Dental Veneer Procedure
The veneer procedure begins with a preliminary appointment. We take impressions of the upper and lower arch, which allows us to create the correct size of the tooth on our stone models.
During the second visit, we attach a temporary material to your teeth. Then, we take pictures and discuss any concerns you might have about how it looks. We will make adjustments accordingly. Once you approve and are happy with the result, only then do we move to the actual procedure. You have complete control during this appointment. The pictures we take can be emailed to you to discuss how it looks with your family or friends, allowing you to get more opinions before moving forward.
At the third appointment, we attach the permanent veneers. Our technicians are incredibly talented at creating beautiful veneers that look perfect in your smile. Each veneer is unique, sculpted to match your personality and facial characteristics.
Do Veneers Last a Long Time?
Dental veneers are permanent and can only be removed with a high-speed handpiece. Veneers bond to enamel, which is even stronger than regular full-coverage crowns. It is extremely rare for a veneer to break loose.
Dental Veneer Cost
The cost of dental veneers can range from $900 to $2,500. Our lab technician uniquely crafts each one for a perfect match and excellent strength. For specific pricing questions, please give us a call. Since dental veneers are a cosmetic procedure, dental insurance does not cover them.
