The Benefits of Veneers

Veneers can be used to treat almost any cosmetic issue with your smile, including gaps in your smile, uneven teeth, severe staining, and minor chips

With proper care, veneers can easily last 10-15 years or longer

You can treat your veneers just like natural teeth, so all you have to do to keep them in great shape is brush twice a day, floss once a day, and see Coronado Dental Associates for a checkup every six months

As experienced cosmetic dentists, Dr. Margaret Meadows and Dr. Melanie Villalobos can provide you with a beautiful, natural-looking smile

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are made out of durable porcelain ceramic materials. These thin, tooth-shaped shells are designed to fit over the front chewing surfaces of your teeth, and cover up imperfections like gaps in your smile, yellowed teeth, uneven teeth, and more. 

With veneers, you can treat a wide variety of cosmetic problems with a single treatment, which takes about 2 appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks. Veneers are very popular among cosmetic dentistry patients due to their durability, versatility, and natural appearance.

What Can I expect From Veneer Placement?

After you’ve been approved for veneers by Dr. Meadows or Dr. Villalobos, the process will usually take 2 appointments over a period of several weeks. To begin, you will need to have your teeth prepared for veneers.

At your preparation appointment, Dr. Meadows or Dr. Villalobos will begin by cleaning and numbing your mouth. Then, they will remove a thin layer of enamel from each of the teeth that are being treated with veneers. This layer is usually about 0.5mm thick, and is removed to ensure that the veneers can be bonded tightly to your teeth without adding extra bulk to your teeth and affecting your bite.

Once your teeth have been trimmed, Dr. Villalobos or Dr. Meadows will use dental putty and trays to take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be sent to an outside dental lab. This is where your veneers will be made.

It will take a few weeks for your veneers to be made, so you will be sent home with a set of temporary resin veneers. Once your permanent veneers arrive at Coronado Dental Associates, you’ll come back for your final appointment. Dr. Villalobos or Dr. Meadows will check the fit of your veneers to make sure everything looks good. Then, your veneers will be permanently bonded to your teeth using dental cement, and you’ll be sent home with a beautiful new smile.

How Should I Care For my Veneers?

For the most part, you can treat veneers just like natural teeth. Brush twice a day for two minutes, floss once a day, and see the team at Coronado Dental Associates for an oral exam and teeth cleaning every six months.

You should also avoid chewing extremely hard foods (popcorn kernels, ice, almonds, etc.) with your veneers, and you should never chew non-food objects like pens, pencils, or nails. In addition, don’t use teeth as “tools” to open a package or tear tape. These habits can result in premature damage to your veneers.

How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?

This will vary for every patient. However, generally speaking, your veneers will last somewhere between 10-20 years. It’s entirely possible for veneers to last longer than this with proper care, too. Veneers are considered to be the longest-lasting method of cosmetic treatment used in dentistry today, with the possible exception of cosmetic dental crowns. 

To keep your veneers in good shape, the most important thing to do is to brush twice a day, floss once a day, and see Dr. Villalobos or Dr. Meadows for a teeth cleaning and oral exam every six months. This allows our team to keep an eye on your oral health, and ensure that both your veneers and natural teeth are in good condition. 
Also, you should avoid chewing really hard foods like nuts or popcorn kernels with your veneers. Use your rear teeth instead. This will help prevent the premature damage and loosening of your veneers. 

It’s also a good idea to break the habit of chewing non-food objects like pencils and pens, or using your teeth to accomplish tasks like ripping tape or tearing open packages. You should only be using your teeth to bite and chew food, and this is doubly true of teeth that have been restored with veneers.

Are Dental Veneers Covered By Insurance?

No. In almost all instances, dental veneers are not considered to be an “essential” dental treatment, and are usually not covered by insurance. While there are some exceptions, most insurance plans don’t cover veneers.
 
However, we do our best to keep costs reasonable for veneers at Coronado Dental Associates. We also offer payment plans for most cosmetic dentistry plans. This allows you to split the cost of treatment into monthly payments. With our help, your dream smile is within reach!
