Transforming Your Smile with Dental Veneers


If you’re looking for a custom cosmetic dental solution made just for your needs, porcelain veneers may be the right option for you. Veneers are thin, durable shells that are custom-made from molds of your teeth that are the same color as tooth enamel. The shells are then bonded onto the front of your tooth for a natural look and fit that immediately improves your smile. Veneers are ideal for patients who have strong, healthy teeth, but are stained, gapped, or crooked. Porcelain veneers make teeth look straighter, whiter, and more intact, and they can last for years with proper care. Always make sure to keep up with proper brushing and flossing habits even if you get veneers.

Contact Dr. Giancarlo Cecchini at North Coast Dental for a consultation to see if porcelain veneers are the right solution for your smile.

If you are curious about how veneers can transform your smile, how much they cost, or if you are even a good candidate, be sure to take advantage of our free veneer consultations. Your doctor will use state-of-the-art digital scanning technology to assess your smile, answer any questions you may have and walk you through a custom treatment plan so you can make an informed decision about your smile transformation.

THE BENEFITS OF VENEERS

Veneers are works of art, meticulously crafted to resemble the beauty and subtlety of a natural tooth. Each veneer is customized to fit naturally within your smile, enhancing the shape, size, and color of your teeth.

Because each veneer is individually placed, you can brush and floss like you normally do. Enjoy your new smile with no added complexity to your normal dental routine.

While veneers are very thin, porcelain is actually just as durable as natural tooth enamel, providing you with a resilient and long-lasting solution for a stunning smile that stands the test of time.

THE VENEERS TREATMENT PROCESS

After you’ve been approved for treatment during your cosmetic consultation, your dentist will gently buff away a thin layer of enamel to prepare your teeth that will be receiving the veneers.

After your teeth are prepared, the team will use a digital scanner to generate a model of your teeth. These will be sent to a dental lab where your permanent veneers will be created. You will be sent home with a set of temporary resin veneers, which will protect your newly-prepared teeth until your permanent veneers are ready.

Once your dentist has checked the fit of your custom-made veneers and everything looks good, they’ll be attached to your teeth permanently using dental adhesive, completing your brand new smile.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

CAN VENEERS BE REMOVED?

No. Since traditional veneers are bonded into place permanently, they are not meant to be removed. In other words, the procedure is not reversible, as it requires a thin layer of enamel to be permanently buffed away from your teeth. After your treatment, you will need to take proper care of your veneers, and have them replaced if any of them break or become dislodged.

HOW LONG DO VENEERS LAST?

This varies and depends on how well you take care of your veneers, but most patients can keep a set of veneers for 15 to 20 years. Over time, your veneers may wear down, and you may need to have individual veneers repaired or replaced.

The best way to prolong the lifespan of your veneers is to brush and floss properly, and to keep visiting your dentist every six months for a teeth cleaning and oral exam. You should also avoid doing things that could break or dislodge your veneers, such as chewing non-food objects, chewing hard foods with your front teeth, or using your teeth as tools.

WHAT ARE VENEERS MADE OF?

Veneers are typically made of a high-quality ceramic porcelain material that looks and feels just like natural tooth enamel. The porcelain will be matched to the color of your teeth and is very similar to enamel in hardness and translucence, making it an ideal material for enhancing the appearance of your smile.

Resin veneers are also available, but they are typically only used as temporary veneers because resin does not look as natural, and is not nearly as durable as porcelain veneers.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VENEERS AND LUMINEERS?

Veneers and Lumineers are very similar, except that Lumineers are much thinner than traditional veneers. Lumineers are a specific brand of veneers that are made out of a proprietary ceramic material. They are usually only about 0.2mm thick, whereas traditional veneers are about 0.5mm thick. Because of this, Lumineers can often be placed without trimming your existing enamel. This is why they’re often called “no-prep” or “minimal-prep” veneers.

HOW MUCH DO VENEERS TYPICALLY COST?

The cost of veneers will vary depending on how many teeth will be receiving veneers, your overall oral health, the size and shape of each tooth, and a variety of other factors. The best way to get an accurate cost estimate is to contact your dentist for a cosmetic consultation. During your consultation, your dentist will examine your mouth, assess your oral health, and give you a quote for the cost of treatment with veneers.
