Porcelain veneers are thin casings that alter the appearance of your smile. By filling in gaps or brightening the appearance of your smile, we’ll help you get veneers that give you a confident smile. This is a seamless treatment because we match the veneers to your own smile and make them to fit your bite.
At North Tonawanda Family Dentistry, we take x-rays and impressions of your mouth so we can create the perfect veneer for you. We use porcelain veneers, which are natural looking and more resistant to stains than composite veneers. After your veneers are made, we’ll fit them to your bite as closely as possible, then bond them on for a permanent result.
Many people wait too long to see the dentist because it can be difficult to afford dental care without insurance. If you have Medicaid or Medicare, we want to make it as easy as possible to help you maintain a happy and healthy smile!
While your veneers shouldn’t require any additional maintenance, it’s important that you regularly brush and floss between them along with your natural teeth. Good oral hygiene will keep you from developing a cavity underneath the veneer’s shell. If you have any questions or concerns about your veneers, we advise you to call our office right away to book a consultation. Our team can help you keep your dream smile in great shape for years to come.
All dental treatments are recommended on a case-by-case basis. It depends on your exact needs, budget, oral health, and more. Some patients get veneers when their teeth are too discolored for traditional whitening methods. Others choose veneers when they have abnormally short teeth that other cosmetic or restorative treatments can’t fix. When you visit us for a consultation, we’ll be able to better help you decide what type of treatment is right for you!
There are many kinds of veneers, Lumineers, palatal, non-permanent, and more. Porcelain veneers are known as the original, traditional veneers. They are one of the most popular kinds of veneers and have been the go-to for celebrities for decades. Lumineers are thinner versions of porcelain veneers; composite veneers are more budget-friendly but don’t last as long; palatal veneers are gold and applied to the inside of the upper teeth; and non-permanent veneers are most often used temporarily while permanent veneers are being created in the lab.
