What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are like thin covers for your teeth. They're designed to match the color of your teeth and are permanently bonded to the front surface. With this cosmetic solution, Dr. Dhaliwal can fix various aesthetic issues like chipped, broken, stained, or smaller teeth. Some people might only need one veneer for a broken or chipped tooth. But usually, people choose to get 6 to 8 veneers to create a symmetrical smile. The top eight front teeth are the ones most often treated with veneers.

The Process of Getting Veneers

Interested in getting veneers? Here's how it works!

First, you'll have a one-on-one meeting with Dr. Dhaliwal where you’ll discuss what you want for your teeth and smile. If she thinks you're a good candidate, she’ll gently remove a tiny bit of enamel to ensure the veneers look as natural as possible.

After that, she’ll take special 3D images of your teeth and send them to a trusted dental laboratory for the creation of your custom veneers. This usually takes a few weeks, so in the meantime, you'll receive temporary covers.

Once we get your veneers from the lab, we’ll use an extremely strong bonding material to attach them in place. Dr. Dhaliwal will make sure they fit perfectly! When it's all said and done, you'll have the perfect smile you've been wanting.

Benefits of Veneers

Veneers come with a range of benefits, including:

  • Customized Fit – Veneers are specially designed to match the size, shape, and color of your existing teeth, ensuring a seamless blend.
  • Natural Appearance – Carefully placed veneers look entirely natural, making it hard for anyone to tell they're not your real teeth.
  • Durable – With proper care, veneers can last for over a decade.
  • Stain-Resistance – Veneers are less likely to get stained compared to your natural enamel, potentially offering a long-term solution for keeping your smile bright.

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

Without learning all about your aesthetic goals, the state of your oral health, and what you’d like to fix about your teeth, we can’t give you an estimate of the price. That’s why scheduling a consultation is so important! At this visit, we will cover a lot of ground – from if you’re a candidate for veneers to how much your smile makeover will cost. In the meantime, however, you can learn more general information on the topic below.

Cost vs. Cosmetic Dentistry: What's Right For Me?

Although veneers continue to be one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments year after year, they certainly aren’t the only smile-enhancing service we offer.

  • Braces – At Complete Dental Care of Covington, we offer SureSmile, which is a reliable, safe, and discreet teeth-straightening solution. If you have noticeable gaps in your smile or your teeth overlap slightly, then we will need to determine if this orthodontic treatment is best for you or if veneers are more ideal. Although they both require a higher upfront investment and the results have the potential to last for 15+ years, veneers have an advantage in that they can fix multiple dental imperfections at once.
  • Teeth Whitening – If you’ve tried over-the-counter whitening kits, then you know that they rarely deliver the beautiful results you’re looking for. The good news is that professional teeth whitening treatments can, and they are typically mid-range in terms of cost! When comparing this stain-removing service to veneers, it’s important to remember that the latter can fix multiple dental flaws at once and can address permanent discoloration. So, if you want to improve the shape of your teeth and brighten the color by eight shades or more, then veneers may be a better investment!
  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding – Cosmetic dental bonding is one of the most affordable options upfront. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best choice for your smile, however. Since this smile-enhancing service can only fix small flaws, you may not be a candidate if you’re struggling with a large chip or substantial gaps. Furthermore, veneers have a longer lifespan, which means that they have the potential to be a better investment over time.
