questions about veneers

How can veneers change my smile?

Cosmetic dentists use veneers so often because of their versatility, durability, and natural look.

A single set of veneers simultaneously corrects an assortment of aesthetic dental issues, including:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Teeth that are slightly crooked or twisted
  • Permanently hide stained teeth
  • Close an unwanted gap between front teeth

Also, Lake Forest Smiles often uses veneers when combining different cosmetic procedures as part of a smile makeover.

Why should I choose veneers?

Dental porcelain is known to be resistant to stains. It also reflects light in a similar fashion to your natural tooth enamel and can be color-matched to your other teeth, or chosen in a brighter shade if you would like an overall whiter look to your smile. The procedure itself is minimally invasive; only a small amount of your natural tooth structure—about the width of a single hair—is removed.

Are veneers right for me?

Compared to other cosmetic procedures, receiving veneers is less invasive, and results are fast. In as little as two weeks, you can have a transformed smile. Deciding to get veneers is a huge decision. You are a good candidate for veneers if you have imperfect teeth that you want to fix, and you are looking for the most natural-looking results. A good candidate for veneers also has good oral health. Any cavities or gum disease should be addressed before beginning cosmetic dentistry. Otherwise, the results may not last, and you could end up wasting your time and money.

How much will veneers cost?

The cost of getting veneers will depend on how many you get. If you only need a couple of veneers to fix your front teeth, that will cost less than having veneers that cover all of your visible teeth, which could be as many as 16-20 veneers. Other factors that may affect the overall cost are if you require additional treatments, such as a dental cleaning, fillings, or gum disease treatment. Keep in mind that cosmetic dentistry typically is not covered by dental insurance, but you will find that the benefits are worth the investment. Lake Forest Smiles accepts cash, checks, and most major credit cards while offering third-party financing through CareCredit and LendingClub. We also offer in-house financing to those that qualify.
