There are many questions you will want to find the answer to before seeking treatment for chipped broken or discolored teeth including “how much as veneers?”
What Are Veneers?
Dental veneers are enamel colored thin shells that are placed on the surface of your teeth to improve the aesthetic of your smile.
What Are Veneers Made Of?
Veneers are typically made of a porcelain or a resin-composite material and look just like your natural tooth.
What Are Veneers Used For?
Patients who are good candidates for dental veneers often have many different cosmetic concerns such as the following:
- Chipped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Small teeth
Traditional Veneers vs. No-Prep
A traditional veneer fitting will include the grinding down of your teeth before they can be properly placed.
No-prep veneers work differently in that your dentist will only target your enamel without needing to grind your tooth down.
How Much Are Veneers?
Unfortunately, dental veneers are not typically covered by insurance as they are considered to be a cosmetic procedure.
The final cost will vary depending on where you receive your veneers, but you can generally expect the cost to range from $925 to $2500 per tooth for traditional veneers.
How Long Will Veneers Last?
Traditional dental veneers should last between 10 and 15 years.
How to Care for Dental Veneers
There is not much of a recovery period required once you have received your dental veneers.
In fact, once the anesthetic wears off you are able to eat and chew normally.
To get the most out of your veneers there are certain precautions you can take to increase their lifespan:
- Avoid chewing on hard objects (pens, ice etc.)
- Do not open packages with your mouth
- Eat hard foods with your back teeth
- If you grind your teeth invest in a mouthguard
- Wear a mouthguard when playing contact sports.
