Dental veneers are a quick and relatively simple way for you people to achieve the perfect set of teeth. If you feel that you could do with improving the colour or shape of your teeth then veneers could be the option you are looking for and with more and more cosmetic dentists offering a wide range of veneers, the cost of Dental Veneers has never been more competitive.
Dental veneers can be used for a variety of cosmetic reasons to help improve the smile of patients with a number of imperfections including:
As is the case with all types of cosmetic work there is a huge range of price options available to you. The cost of veneers will depend on which dentist and clinic you choose, how much work you will be having done and most importantly which material you choose for your veneers to be crafted from. Whether the dental veneers used are specifically tailored to fit your teeth or whether a more standard "Factory Fit" is used will also have an impact of the overall cost of the Veneers.
The two most popular types of dental veneer are porcelain and composite:
Composite veneers on average will last between 2-5 years without requiring replacement however porcelain veneers will last around 5-8 years so this must be taken in to account when deciding between both options.
It is worth doing research to find the best option available to you and being a rapidly growing market you'll find that cosmetic dentists will be competitively pricing their services so it's important that you compare quotes from a variety of clinics before committing to treatment. Try to investigate the track records of individual practices, get recommendations from friends, and find a dentist and a clinic that you feel confident with.
Dental Veneers are manufactured from an extremely thin material (commonly made from porcelain, but now there are a wide range of different options available for patients) individually and custom made to fit your teeth. Once the material has been measured and shaped it is glued to the front of the patient’s natural teeth.
As this procedure has grown in popularity more and more clinics are offering this type of cosmetic dentistry to their clients. It is also a fairly swift process in which firstly you'll have an initial appointment to discuss what you are looking to achieve and for the dentist to make a model of your teeth. Around 2 weeks after this you will return for the fitting in which the custom made claddings are glued onto your teeth after the dentist has shaved off a tiny amount of tooth enamel from each tooth.
Dental Veneers are a cheap, painless and effective way to improve your smile and depending on the material you use these veneers could sit comfortably in place for 15 years.
