What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers, or porcelain veneers, are thin but durable shells that improve the look of your teeth by covering the front surface. They are then bonded to the teeth to keep them in place. Not all veneers are made from porcelain. There are resin-made veneers that are less resistant to stains than the porcelain type.

Veneers not only offer you the chance to have differently shaped teeth, but they can also be used to change the length, size, and color of your teeth. They are most commonly used to fix teeth that are discolored, worn down, broken, or uneven.

What are Dental Componeers?

If the cost of porcelain Veneers has deterred you from getting the smile of your dreams then componeers may be a great option for you. Componeers are made with a composite material and are created in the chair, rather than in a lab. Because of this, they cost less but also don’t last quite as long. This option is not as involved as a complete smile makeover and many guests feel like a whole new person afterward.

Frequently Asked Dental Veneers Questions

What are the differences between Veneers and Componeers?

If you have stained, chipped, or unevenly spaced teeth, veneers or componeers are both effective, non-intrusive ways of improving the look of your smile and increasing your self-esteem!

As dental technology increases, so do your options for a smile makeover. Veneers are the more traditional option, but Componeers are a newer option that can save you time and money. Learn more about their differences here.

How do I decide if veneers are right for me?

If you are unhappy with your smile

If you are constantly stressed out about your smile, and attempt to hide it at all costs, you might benefit greatly from an investment in veneers.

Do you have cracked, chipped or broken teeth?

Whatever the reason for your cracked, chipped or broken teeth, porcelain veneers can really make a world of difference in the restoration of your smile.

Do you have stained or discoloured teeth that are resistant to whitening products?

If you are looking for a dramatic whitening effect on stained teeth, porcelain veneers are hard to beat. The ability to restore whiteness using porcelain veneers is really second to none.

Do you have big gaps in your teeth?

Bonding is a common way of fixing this, but porcelain veneers are also quite common and very effective. In order to determine if bonding or veneers makes the most sense for you, you need to visit your orthodontist to get their professional opinion.

Tips to keep your porcelain veneers clean

  1. Regular Dental Visits

  2. Properly Brush and Floss to prevent decay occurring from unwanted bacteria growth

  3. Maintain a Healthy Diet that provides the nutrients needed to support the health of your teeth and gums

  4. Avoid Potentially Damaging Habits, such as nail biting, eating hard candies and foods

  5. Stop Smoking

I don't think I can afford dental veneers. What are my other options?

Here are some other options to finance your dream smile.

Go with Componeers

Componeers are made of a composite material and are created at the dentist’s office, rather than in a lab. They can be applied in just one visit, and cost significantly less than veneers. Componeers are a great option for those who want a smile makeover but are deterred by the cost of porcelain veneers. However, unlike porcelain veneers, they aren’t permanent, and over time will need to be replaced.

Financing/Payment Plan

If you really want veneers, but are unable to pay for them up front, your dentist may offer the option to pay for the procedure in installments. Speak to your dentist about this possibility, as paying in several smaller installments can make the cost of veneers far more manageable.

Check Third Party Financing Programs

If your dentist doesn’t provide financing programs for veneers, ask them about any third party financing programs. These are offered by companies that are willing to cover the cost of an elective dental procedure, and then accept repayment in installments or monthly payments.
