Getting the perfect smile can be difficult if you’re experiencing worn enamel, chips, cracks, discoloration, or uneven spacing. While there are other options for addressing some of these concerns, veneers are also a great option for some patients, depending on their oral history, age, and other factors. If you’re interested in veneers, a dentist will be able to help you determine if they are the right choice for you.

What Are Veneers?
Veneers are made of porcelain, and each thin shell is created for your teeth specifically. Veneers lay over your teeth to fix dental problems and give you a gleaming white smile. Because they are created by highly trained technicians in a dental lab for your unique needs and sizing, veneers are custom to you. Patients can elect to have a single veneer placed over a tooth, but most choose to have a full set for a uniform shape, size, and color.
What is the Process Like?
There are several steps when you decide to get veneers. First, your dentist will make molds of your teeth and send them to the dental lab to create veneers that will fit your smile perfectly. Your dentist will then remove a small portion of your tooth structure to give the veneers something to adhere to without feeling overly bulky or awkward. You will see your dentist for veneers several times throughout the process – veneers cannot be made and placed in just a couple of appointments.
Are Veneers Right for Me?
If you struggle with rotations in your teeth, have significant wear and tear, or show several stains, veneers could be a great option for you. Discussing your options with a dentist will help you begin to understand if veneers are smart for you, both financially and aesthetically.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
The price will vary based on whether you choose one veneer or a full set, any insurance coverage that applies, and other factors. Remember that there are multiple steps to the process, including scaling and preparation before the procedure, the making of the veneer, attaching the veneer, and cleaning and setting it. Estimates range from $500 per tooth to $2,000 per tooth but are cost-effective in the long run due to their durability.
