Laton area dentist explains the cost of veneers is worth it for the beautiful results
Hanford Family Dental Center, serving the Laton area, wants all our patients to feel healthy and self-confident. Sometimes, patients come to us with chipped and cracked teeth, or discolored teeth. Unfortunately, so many first impressions these days are influenced by our smile. When you don’t feel good about your teeth, you don’t feel good about yourself. Dr. Nikunj Raiyani believes that the benefits of veneers outweigh the cost.
Definition of veneers:
Veneers are shells of porcelain that are placed on your teeth. Porcelain is the material used because it closely resembles tooth enamel and is more stain resistant.
- Fixes the appearance of worn enamel.
- Uneven spacing
- Tooth discoloration
- Chips and cracks
After an initial consultation, in which we really get to know you, not just your medical history but your lifestyle, we will then schedule a time for you to come in. During the first visit, we will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel. We place temporary veneers on at that appointment. We take impressions of your teeth and bite during this appointment as well. A ceramist at a dental laboratory then creates the customized veneers. At your next appointment, we will affix them to your teeth with strong dental cement.
Why veneers are worth the cost:
- Appearance: Veneers blend in very naturally with your teeth.
- Minimizes the possibility of more extensive dental work (such as crowns, or in the case of minor misalignment, the need for orthodontic work)
- Durable: They last for ten to fifteen years.
- Easy to care for: Veneers are cared for in the same way as your natural teeth.
