Dental Veneers Hearts Dental
Dental veneers are used to correct just about any cosmetic dental problem you can think of. Common problems such as chipped or broken teeth, gappy teeth, crooked teeth, worn down teeth or discolored teeth can all be dramatically improved through the use of veneers.
Dental veneers can be applied directly onto the teeth or indirectly through the use of a dental lab. A direct veneer is made out of aesthetic dental resin composite (“plastic”) and is a conservative and economic option for many. An indirect veneer made out of porcelain offers supreme aesthetics and strength.
Here is a comparison between the two:
|Visits Required||Single Visit||Two Visits|
|Longevity||3-5 years||8-10 years|
|Appearance||Natural white slightly matt finish||Glamorously white shiny finish|
|Wear & Tear||Gradual wear down and discoloration||Resistant to wear and no discoloration|
|Maintenance||Requires yearly polish||Minimal maintenance|
|Cost||$300+ per tooth||$1500+ per tooth|
Veneers, Onlays, Crowns, bridges and implants are often used in combination for full mouth rehabilitation.
