Why Choose Friedland Family Dentistry of Pembroke Pines For Veneers?

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin, strong shells custom-crafted from non-porous dental porcelain. Each shell is made to fit over the visible portion of teeth to conceal a variety of flaws, such as chips, cracks, severe discoloration, and gaps between teeth. Porcelain is an incredible durable material and is strong enough to withstand daily use for chewing. It also is stain-resistant, meaning you won’t have to worry about your veneers discoloring over time due to coffee, red wine, and other products that are high in tannins. In just three appointments, veneers are able to completely transform your smile.

The Veneers Procedure

The process of getting veneers is efficient, pain-free, and simple. However, before the treatment can begin, Dr. Kushner or Dr. Friedland will thoroughly examine your mouth and discuss the desires you have for your smile.

After determining that you’re a good candidate for veneers, they’ll be able to start preparing the natural teeth that you’d like to have repaired to receive the permanent shells. To do this, we will remove a small amount of enamel to accommodate the thickness of the shells so they can lay flush with your surrounding teeth. We’ll then take impressions of your mouth to send to our dental laboratory to craft your permanent veneers and place temporary ones until they arrive.

Once your permanent veneers have arrived at our office, we’ll call you in to have them placed. First, we’ll make sure that each veneer is made to our specifications and matches the shade of your surrounding teeth. Once we’ve confirmed that they meet our standards, we’ll cement them into place and polish up your smile before we send you on your way.

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

When you’re considering the price of veneers, it’s important to think in terms beyond how costly one treatment is compared to another. You should pick the cosmetic services that will best help you achieve your smile goals, and to that end, veneers are often a worthwhile investment in the long-term. We can help you get some perspective on how veneers compare to other treatments and whether they’ll be worth what you pay.

Which Cosmetic Service is Right for Me?

Every cosmetic treatment has its own costs as well as its own pros and cons. Below, you can see for yourself how veneers stack up next to other common treatments.

  • Orthodontics: Clear aligners and other forms of orthodontic care are excellent for straightening the teeth and correcting issues such as overbite and underbite. However, these treatments tend to be far more costly than other cosmetic services, and they take longer to complete. Also, they can only correct problems related to the positioning of the teeth and jaw; they can’t change the color of enamel or reshape your teeth.
  • Teeth Whitening: We can use professional whitening to brighten your teeth by several shade in one appointment. It’s one of the more inexpensive cosmetic procedures, and it can be completed in a relatively short amount of time. Of course, compared to other treatments, it’s far more limited in what it can addressed, that being tooth color. As such, it’s only really an option for patients that want to make one specific kind of cosmetic correction.
  • Direct Bonding: Compared to orthodontics and teeth whitening, direct bonding is a bit more versatile, being able to make a variety of changes to the appearance of the teeth. It’s also the cheapest cosmetic treatment available and allows you to get results in a single appointment. The trade-off is that it you’ll need to redo the treatment every few years or so due to wear and tear on the composite material. Also, bonding tends to be most suitable for minor changes.
  • Veneers: Veneers can be used to improve the color, shape, position, and overall appearance of your teeth. It is by far your best option for completely transforming the smile by making multiple changes all at once and can be done in just two appointments. It does cost more than teeth whitening and direct bonding, but the long-term results are well worth the price.

How Can I Make Veneers More Affordable?

Dental insurance does not normally cover veneers or any other cosmetic procedure that is not being performed for dental health reasons. However, you can still apply for CareCredit financing if you don’t want to pay the entire cost of veneers up front.   If you’re accepted for a CareCredit plan, the cost of your care will be split into monthly payments, making it much easier to fit the total into your budget. You can ask any questions you might have about CareCredit during your initial consultation for veneers.

Veneers FAQs

Chances are you’re excited about transforming your smile with veneers, but you might still have some questions about the finer details of this treatment. Below, we have gathered some of the questions we get asked the most often about veneers and answered them for your benefit. If you don’t find the information you were looking for, just give us a call and our team will be more than happy to help you!

Am I a Good Candidate for Veneers?

If you have any of the following cosmetic imperfections in your smile, porcelain veneers might be just the thing you need:

It’s worth pointing out, though, that porcelain veneers are most effective on healthy teeth. For this reason, we highly recommend you attend a dental checkup and cleaning before scheduling your consultation for veneers.

Will It Hurt to Get Veneers?

During the tooth preparation phase of treatment, your dentist will have to slightly modify your teeth by removing the outermost layer of enamel. To make sure you don’t feel any pain during this procedure, we’ll numb your mouth with a local anesthetic.

In general, the more veneers you’re receiving, the more likely you are to experience some minor soreness for a few days following your procedure. However, this discomfort should be easily managed with an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

At your consultation, we’ll give you a customized cost estimate based on the number of veneers you’re receiving. It goes without saying that the more veneers you get, the more you’ll end up paying. Additionally, the cost will vary depending on whether you require gum recontouring prior to veneer placement.

While dental insurance does not usually cover purely cosmetic treatments like porcelain veneers, it’s worth contacting your insurance carrier to find out whether they’ll provide some coverage. If they don’t, keep in mind that we offer financing options like CareCredit so that you can fund your new smile without breaking the bank.

Are Porcelain Veneers Permanent?

Because some enamel must be removed and enamel does not grow back, your affected teeth will always need some kind of protection moving forward, whether you choose more veneers or dental crowns. Hence, porcelain veneers are indeed considered a permanent treatment. However, this shouldn’t deter you from getting them. Most of our patients are thrilled with their smile after improving it with veneers.

Provided you take proper care of your veneers, you can expect them to last upwards of 10 years before they need to be replaced. You can maximize their lifespan by maintaining excellent oral hygiene, protecting them from injury, and keeping up with your regular dental appointments.

Will People Be Able to Tell That I Have Porcelain Veneers?

When designing your veneers, we take several factors into consideration, like your surrounding teeth, face shape, and skin tone. This helps create a restoration that blends in with your unique smile. Plus, dental porcelain resembles natural tooth enamel almost perfectly, even in the way it reflects light. Unless they’re a dental professional, others shouldn’t be able to tell that your veneers aren’t a natural part of your smile!
