Veneers are used to restore function and fashion to worn teeth. Veneers are either made out of porcelain or composite resin and can improve shape, spacing, colour, and even length of teeth! If you are looking for instantly perfect, straight, white teeth, veneers are for you!
Porcelain veneers: Porcelain veneers are extremely thin, yet durable shells placed on the outside and biting edges of your teeth. They require very little removal of natural tooth structure to facilitate placement. Porcelain veneers can last between 20-25 years and will not lose colour. Porcelain veneers are created outside the office after a mold has been taken and require two visits.
Composite resin veneers: Composite resin veneers are painted onto your teeth and only require one visit. They require slightly more removal of natural tooth structure to facilitate placement, but are cheaper than porcelain veneers.
Depending on the structure of your teeth and what work is required, a certain amount of tooth structure will need to be removed. However, choosing porcelain veneers can be a popular option because not as much room is needed to facilitate placement.
Porcelain veneers will last between 20-25 years while composite resin years can last 4-8 years.
Typically, insurance companies will only cover the cost of absolutely necessary procedures. However, contact your service provider for a comprehensive description of coverage.
Dr. Raj is an amazing dentist! He is friendly, knowledgable, and very good at what he does. I have had many dentists in the past, and I can honestly say he is by far the best. He did an excellent job on my fillings, and I referred my entire family to him, all of whom were equally impressed by his thoroughness and his quality of work. I would recommend him to anybody!
