Everyone wants a picture-perfect smile. If various cosmetic dental treatments don’t seem to deliver the traffic-stopping smile of your dreams, then it might be time to consider dental veneers.
Dental veneers are ultra-thin porcelain covers that a dental professional adheres to the front surface of the teeth to hide minor imperfections. Veneers are a permanent, safe, and aesthetically-pleasing solution to improve your smile, enhance your appearance, and boost your confidence.
Veneers are the ultimate combination of dental art and science, handcrafted and customized to fit your smile. These paper-thin pieces of porcelain bond to the outside of your natural teeth. But just because they’re thin, don’t be fooled. Veneers are highly versatile and can replicate all the complex nuances of a natural tooth.

There’s a lot of diagnostic work and careful planning that goes into a treatment plan that includes veneers. Models, photographs, and digital x-rays allow you and the doctor to create a perfect blueprint to guide your treatment from start to finish.
Typically, patients can get a dazzling, new smile with veneers in as little as two office visits. At the first visit, our dedicated dental team will discuss your smile goals and prepare your teeth by removing a very small amount of tooth enamel. Next, we will take impressions of your teeth. Then, we will send your impressions to a trusted and qualified dental lab to custom-make your veneers. Our team will place temporary veneers on your teeth to protect them until we receive your final veneers.
After the dental lab finishes your personalized veneers, we will schedule a second appointment to place them. At this appointment, we will ensure that your veneers fit properly, feel comfortable, and look exactly how you want them to look. Then, Dr. Shaun or Dr. Maya will permanently bond them to your teeth using a strong dental adhesive.
Veneers are an investment in your image and health. And, as such, we recommend that our patients take good care of them to fully realize their investment. So, here are a few ways that you can prolong the life of your veneers:
In most cases, patients can expect to enjoy their veneers for at least a decade. However, properly caring for your new veneers may allow you to enjoy them for a lifetime!

Overall, while porcelain veneers are not considered to be permanent, they are designed to be durable and long-lasting with proper care. Dr. Shaun and Dr. Maya will work closely with you to develop a personalized care plan that helps extend the lifespan of your veneers.
The process of getting veneers should not be painful, although some patients may experience mild sensitivity or discomfort following the procedure. During the preparation phase, Dr. Shaun or Dr. Maya may use local anesthesia to minimize any discomfort, although many patients do not require it.
Dr. Shaun or Dr. Maya will remove a small amount of enamel from the front surface of the teeth, which may cause mild sensitivity or discomfort in some patients. However, this discomfort is typically short-lived and can be managed with over-the-counter medication if needed.
Once the veneers are bonded to the teeth, patients may experience some sensitivity or discomfort as they adjust to the new shape of their teeth. This discomfort should be mild and typically resolves within a few days.
Porcelain veneer pricing can vary depending on several factors, including the number of veneers needed, materials used, and the complexity of the case. On average, the cost of porcelain veneers can range from less than $1,000 to around $2,000 per tooth.
It’s important to note that veneers are considered a cosmetic dental procedure and are not typically covered by most dental insurances. As such, patients should be prepared to pay the full cost of porcelain veneers out of pocket.
While porcelain veneers may seem expensive, they are considered a long-term investment in one’s appearance and can last for 10 to 15 years or more with proper care. Additionally, at Sand Creek Dental, we offer financing options that spread out your payments to help make the cost of porcelain veneers more affordable.
