Do you hide your smile because you are self-conscious of crooked, gapped, or stained teeth? One solution might be porcelain veneers. Indianapolis patients of Decatur Woods Dental are discovering how porcelain veneers can help rejuvenate their smiles while shedding years off their perceived age. Plus, dental veneers can provide a much-needed confidence boost!
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of ceramic porcelain that are tinted to match the color of the surrounding teeth. Once the veneer is shaped and tinted it is then adhered to the front surface of the tooth. The fit of veneers is so precise you can actually run your tongue along the edge of the veneer and you won’t be able to tell where the tooth ends and where the veneer begins.
The cost for even a single-tooth veneer can vary wildly due to the materials chosen, the experience of the practitioner, geographical market, and the complexity of the procedure. For a veneer on a single tooth, you can expect to pay $500 to over $1,500. If you are looking to have a full smile makeover with veneers, you may want to have a budget in the $21,000 range (the average cost for a complete set of veneers).
If porcelain veneers are outside your budget, you can follow the advice of many other patients and choose dental bonding while you save for a dental veneer procedure.
On average, porcelain veneers can last upwards of 15 to 20 years, although your individual experience may vary. There are some factors that will influence the longevity of your porcelain veneers. These include the type of material used, the location of the veneer, as well as the patient’s oral health routine and habits (i.e. teeth grinding).
