About Dental Veneers
Dental veneers can significantly improve the appearance of your smile. Veneers may be an appropriate dental solution if you are not happy with the natural spacing, shape, length, or color of your teeth or if you underwent a dental procedure that affected the appearance of your teeth.
Dental veneers are made of materials like resin or porcelain and each type of veneer has its merits and demerits for dental patients seeking to change the aesthetics of their smile.
What’s The Cost Of Dental Veneers?
The cost depends on several factors such as the number of veneers placed, location of dental clinic or dentist, qualifications and experience of the dentist, materials used, and the scope of your procedure. The cost of dental veneers can be between several hundred to several thousand dollars after considering the above factors. However, the value of benefits in appearance and self-esteem can be priceless.
Characteristics and Benefits of Veneer Material Type
Porcelain Veneers are more naturally-appearing because of the material’s light-reflecting properties. They have better stain resistance compared to veneers that are made using resin composite materials. Gums have better tolerance for porcelain veneers, which also come in colors that lighten the look of dark teeth.
As resin veneers are thinner compared to porcelain, they have the advantage of needing less tooth surface before they are placed in the patient’s mouth.
The dental specialists at First Dental Implant Center help you determine if veneers are an appropriate solution for you and which material is most suitable depending on your particular dental needs.
Advantages Of Dental Veneers

- They don’t require comprehensive shaping before placement
- Veneers afford patients long-term success while altering a tooth’s color and shape
- They don’t need special care post-placement
- With proper care, veneers can last 10 years or more
Disadvantages Of Dental Veneers
- Cost more than composite resin bonding
- Once veneers are bonded to a patient’s teeth, the process can’t be reversed
- Broken or chipped veneers are difficult to repair
- Removal of enamel for placement could increase tooth sensitivity
- Post-placement, the color of the veneer can’t be modified
- Veneers can get damaged or decay if they are not cared for properly
However, you must note that dentists do not usually recommend veneers for patients who grind or clench their teeth. Veneers should also not be placed if the tooth is too weak to provide the required support or is too weak.
