What Are Dental Veneers Used For?

Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that can correct a variety of aesthetic concerns such as:

  • Altering the shape of teeth
  • Changing the color of teeth
  • Closing small gaps between teeth
  • Covering cracked or chipped teeth
  • Lengthening teeth

The Veneers Process

The placement of veneers usually takes place in two dental visits, after your initial consultation. For your first visit, we prepare your teeth by removing a small layer of enamel. This step helps your veneers properly adhere to your teeth and blend naturally into your smile. Once some enamel is removed, we’ll take molds of the teeth that are getting veneers and send the impressions to the lab where they create your custom veneers. Once we get your permanent veneers from the lab, we’ll bond them to your teeth and make sure they fit. In just two appointments, we can completely transform your smile.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

The cost of veneers varies depending on the number of teeth you plan to cover. During your smile consultation, we’ll design a personalized treatment plan and go over your expected out-of-pocket costs. At Signature Smiles Family Dentistry, we offer a wide range of financial options and work with you to fit a stunning smile into your budget!
