If your teeth are chipped, misshapen, discolored, or slightly gapped, Dr. Schmitt can cover up a wide range of cosmetic imperfections with beautiful porcelain veneers. In just two short appointments, you can transform your smile and boost your confidence with these durable, natural-looking dental prostheses.
Veneers are often recommended if you would like to correct multiple aesthetic issues and you have a relatively healthy mouth free of issues like gum disease and tooth decay. Veneers are extremely versatile and they can treat almost any cosmetic issue, including severely stained teeth that cannot be whitened, small gaps in your teeth, and minor chips. As long as your teeth are healthy and you don’t have major orthodontic issues, veneers are a great option to refresh your smile and restore your confidence.
Veneers are strictly a cosmetic dental treatment, so this procedure is typically not covered by dental insurance. The exact cost of your veneers will depend on a number of different factors including how many veneers you will need, the location of each veneer, and your overall oral health. To get an accurate estimate of the cost of your treatment, schedule a consultation with Dr. Schmitt. We do our best to keep our costs reasonable at Seaglass Dental Care, and we offer flexible financing to ensure that every patient can get the smile they’ve always wanted.
During your first veneers appointment, your mouth will be cleaned and numbed. Then, Dr. Schmitt will remove a thin layer of enamel from each tooth in order to make room for the veneer and ensure a seamless fit. Impressions and images of your teeth will be taken, and Dr. Schmitt will work with a dental lab to create your custom veneers. This typically takes between 2-3 weeks, so you’ll wear a set of temporary veneers until your permanent prostheses are manufactured.
At your last appointment, Dr. Schmitt will check each veneer to make sure it fits properly and looks natural. Then, each veneer will be permanently bonded in place with dental cement. You’ll leave our office with a fresh, rejuvenated smile!
