What Can Dental Veneers Fix?

Veneers are custom-shaped and carefully designed thin shells of porcelain that are attached to the teeth to improve their appearance. While dental crowns cover an entire tooth and teeth whitening only temporarily whitens your smile, veneers are permanently cemented to the front of teeth.

What Can Dental Veneers Fix?

One of the many perks of veneers is that they can disguise a wide array of cosmetic dental issues. For example, veneers can be used for:

  • Altering the overall shape and size of teeth
  • Closing small gaps between teeth
  • Covering misshapen, broken, or cracked teeth
  • Creating a more uniform and symmetrical smile line
  • Lengthening teeth
  • Permanently whitening severely discolored teeth
  • Tweaking your smile to look the way you have always wanted it to look

Price & Longevity of Veneers

Because they require durable, high-end materials and custom artistry, veneers can be an expensive treatment. During your veneers consultation, your dentist will ask about your smile goals and determine how many veneers you will need to achieve your desired results. Once your treatment plan is outlined, they will be able to provide you with an estimated cost breakdown based on your specific needs.

Another factor to consider with veneers is their longevity. While veneers are strong and quite resistant to chips and stains, they do have a lifespan of roughly 15 to 20 years. When considering whether or not to get veneers, keep in mind that you will have to replace them. And once teeth have been prepared for the procedure, they cannot be left unprotected without veneers.
