How do porcelain veneers work?

In order to prepare the tooth for veneers, Drs. Bosher and Nguyen will take into account your smile goals and identify what needs to be accomplished. For most patients, only two visits to our facility are required to transform their smiles with porcelain veneers; however, more appointments could be necessary, depending on their treatment plan. When your personalized treatment program has been developed with Dr. Ron Bosher and Dr. Tim Nguyen, they will begin by slightly roughening and reshaping your teeth, as well as take dental impressions. At Parker West Dental Associates, we utilize advanced impressions for a more accurate image of your smile. Your cosmetic veneers could be made in our office as you wait, or your impressions could be sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be crafted out of high-quality porcelain material. Following your initial appointment, you will be sent home wearing temporary veneers, allowing our team and you to better plan the look of your veneers.

Within your second appointment, your teeth will be carefully polished and cleaned in order to prepare for your veneers. Next, your veneers will be bonded to your natural teeth with a special adhesive. When your porcelain veneers are bonded, small adjustments can be made so that your veneers are comfortable.

Is there recovery time with porcelain veneers?

Since getting cosmetic veneers usually does not require anesthesia, you should be able to resume your daily activities after your appointment. You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold meals for a couple of days, but this should subside naturally. Veneers should be cared for just like your natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing. While porcelain veneers are resistant to stains compared to your natural enamel, you should still avoid staining drinks and foods to keep your smile white. To avoid harming your veneers, you should not chew on hard objects, like your fingernails or ice. Continue to make dental examinations and cleanings at Parker West Dental Associates so we can track the condition of your veneers, teeth, gums, and general oral health. Our dental team will let you know if your cosmetic veneers have to be repaired or replaced.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

Veneers are a cosmetic treatment so they are typically not paid by dental insurance. The cost of porcelain veneers varies for each patient, depending on the number of teeth being concealed. Patients can expect to pay between $1,700 – $2,000 per tooth. Parker West Dental Associates does take many payment options, such as medical financing, to make your veneers easier to afford. During your consult, our financial team will customize your plan to meet your needs and budget. They will go over an estimate for your treatment and explain your payment options.

Porcelain Veneers FAQ

Are porcelain veneers bad for your teeth?
No, they are not. A common misconception about porcelain veneers is that they are bad for your teeth or can contribute to tooth decay. When applied by an experienced doctor like Dr. Nguyen or Dr. Bosher and their team, porcelain veneers are a safe and effective way to achieve a beautiful new smile.

How long do porcelain veneers last
While not technically considered a permanent dental procedure, many patients can see their veneers last 10 – 15 years or longer with good oral hygiene practices and regular dental checkups at Parker West Dental Associates. Avoiding chewing on hard objects, foods, ice, etc. can help prolong the life of your veneers.

How do you take care of porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are very easy to care for – you simply practice good oral hygiene with regular brushing and flossing, including regular dental checkups.

What type of dental issues can porcelain veneers fix?
Porcelain veneers can address a wide variety of tooth problems, like:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Uneven teeth
  • Stains and discoloration
  • Gaps between teeth
  • A gummy smile

Can porcelain veneers be whitened?
Porcelain veneers themselves cannot be whitened as they are resistant to stains and discoloration. If you are considering teeth whitening, it's best to undergo the whitening procedure prior to getting your veneers. We will match the veneer to your newly whitened teeth for a consistent, vibrant smile.

Is it possible to only get one porcelain veneer?
Yes, it's possible to get a single veneer to address an issue with just one tooth. However, to ensure a uniform look, your dentist may recommend veneers for the adjacent teeth as well. During your consultation at Parker West Dental Associates, the best approach for your specific needs will be discussed.
