Questions About Veneers

questions about veneersSan Francisco, Marin, and Oakland, CA

Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth? A veneer can dramatically improve the appearance of a tooth (or teeth if multiple veneers are being placed). Glen Park Dental uses veneers made of durable, high-quality dental porcelain. These veneers, when placed on the front of your teeth, can resolve many cosmetic flaws.

Here are some frequently asked questions about veneers.

What issues can veneers treat?

A veneer is one of the most versatile procedures used in cosmetic dentistry because it can correct several cosmetic problems at once, including:

  • Teeth that are slightly crooked
  • Teeth with discoloration that has not responded to whitening treatments
  • Teeth that are misshapen, too short or too long
  • Teeth that are chipped or broken
  • A gap between teeth

Why should you choose veneers?

Having a veneer installed can save you time and money because a single veneer or set of veneers can resolve several cosmetic flaws simultaneously. A porcelain veneer also is a conservative, minimally invasive treatment option because only a very small amount of your natural tooth structure has to be removed to bond the veneer.

Are veneers used in combination with other cosmetic treatments?

Our team of professionals at Glen Park Dental can install a veneer in combination with other cosmetic treatments. This process, which combines different cosmetic procedures to achieve the aesthetic goals of a patient, is known as a smile makeover.

What do veneers look like once they are installed?

Your veneers will have your teeth looking better than ever. Our veneers are made of high-quality dental porcelain, which reflects light the same way that your natural tooth enamel does. This porcelain also will be matched in shade and color to look like your other natural teeth. If a whiter appearance is desired, we can choose a lighter shade to brighten your smile.

Why choose veneers over other cosmetic dentistry options?

Veneers can hide an array of smile imperfections, but do so while preserving as much of your natural tooth as possible. Other types of permanent cosmetic dental treatments such as crowns require a significant amount of tooth structure to be removed to make room for the final restoration. Veneers, on the other hand, only require that each tooth be slightly buffed, with minimal removal of tooth enamel.

How much do veneers cost?

Porcelain veneers do have a higher cost because of the quality of materials being used. However, at Glen Park Dental, we accept an assortment of payment methods, including third party financing options that have payment plans, which fit into almost any household budget.
