We want our patients to enter the procedure fully aware of what veneers are, how they can benefit them, and all the advantages and disadvantages they provide.
What Are Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin covers adhered to the surface of your teeth. Not only do they cover stained or discolored teeth, but they also reshape them, giving your teeth a more classic and perfect appearance. Veneers are popular due to their versatility and low maintenance. Drs. Leaman, Setnicar, & Piacsek, S.C can use them to correct significant issues with teeth just as easily as we can minor imperfections. They’re extremely effective at addressing several common conditions within our patients’ mouths where other methods aren’t as efficient. Most importantly, the veneer process is not a rigorous one. We don’t need to use anesthesia, and our dental professionals can usually perform the procedure in-office in one day.
We Provide Two Kinds of Veneers to Our Patients
Drs. Leaman, Setnicar, & Piacsek, S.C aim to ensure our patients have plenty of options when considering veneers. We offer porcelain and composite resin veneers. Both are effective, and they each offer distinct advantages over the other. Most of the time, we suggest which option we feel is better for you during a consultation. Some essential facts to know about porcelain and composite resin veneers are:
If it’s durability you’re concerned with, then porcelain veneers are the better bet. When maintained correctly, they can last between 10 to 15 years. They’re more translucent than composite resin veneers, which results in a slightly more realistic appearance. However, they are more expensive and take at least two visits to apply.
Composite Resin Veneers:
While composite resin veneers don’t last as long as the porcelain alternative, patients can still rely on four to eight years, assuming individuals continue outstanding oral care. The main advantage of composite resin veneers is our dentists can complete the procedure in one visit. While they aren’t quite as realistic-looking or durable as porcelain, they are cheaper and satisfy many patients.
Are Veneers Worth It? How Much Do They Cost?
For many years, silver-mercury amalgams were the most commonly used filling material. They work well as a restoration, are affordable, and are covered by most insurance plans. Many patients, however, do not like the noticeable appearance of this metallic filling in their teeth. At our practice, we offer the latest, most advanced restorations that contain no metals and add strength to the tooth structure. These modern fillings can match the shade of your tooth color, so they are nearly invisible and not apparent when speaking or laughing. They bind very tightly to the healthy tooth to greatly reduce the chance of decay setting in. We are pleased to offer you these two options and will discuss which type of filling best suits your needs.
