Miami Veneers

Many people have cosmetic issues with their teeth that they would like to correct, or at least to hide from public view. These situations might include stained or discolored teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, or teeth which simply don't respond to whitening procedures. By installing dental veneers, you'll also be able to close gaps between your teeth, or hide the fact that some of your teeth are a bit crooked.

Whatever the reason for your desire to improve your smile, we can definitely help you achieve that by installing dental veneers. At Amores Dental, we'll be glad to consult with you to learn about your goals with cosmetic dentistry. Once we are familiar with your needs and wants, we can tell you what is possible with dental veneers. If you decide to move forward with the procedure, it might be as little as a couple weeks later that you're flashing a brand-new dazzling smile to the rest of the world.

What exactly are dental veneers?

Basically, dental veneers are thin shells which fit over your normal teeth, for the purpose of improving your smile. In order to make room for those veneers, it will be necessary to remove some of the enamel on your tooth surfaces. The front teeth are the ones which are the most common targets for dental veneers, because these are the ones most easily observed by other people.

Anytime a person has dental veneers installed, they will be totally customized to the size and shape of existing teeth. The veneers themselves will be made of either a resin-based composite or of porcelain. There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of veneers, but both will serve the purpose of improving your smile.

This is a semi-permanent solution to whatever cosmetic issue you're trying to improve. Once installed, dental veneers are not meant to be taken out until they begin showing signs of wear and tear. In the case of porcelain veneers, this might be 20 years or so, and with resin-based veneers, it might be five to seven years before they become worn.

There are a few factors which will influence the cost of your veneers, primarily the type of veneer you have installed, and how much preparation work is necessary before implementation. Resin-based veneers don't usually require as much preparation work as do porcelain veneers. That means they will be much less expensive to install, although they also will not last as long as their counterparts.

You can count on a comprehensive consultation costing you between $250 and $500 at the outset. When you have resin-based veneers installed, that will likely cost in the neighborhood of $250 to $500 per tooth. When having porcelain veneers installed, that price jumps to between $1,000 and $4,000 per tooth. The area of the country you live in may also have an impact on the final total, since laboratory costs and materials cost may be greater where you live.

It's good to be aware that in most states, insurance coverage is not provided for installing dental veneers. Given the fact that they're considered an optional dental procedure, most carriers will not provide any coverage at all. However, you still may be able to afford dental veneers, because some dental clinics offer payment plans which can spread out the payments over a period of time.

What is the process for having veneers installed?

Despite the fact that having dental veneers installed can be fairly expensive, it is basically a fairly straightforward process. When you have resin-based veneers installed, they can often be completed in one or two appointments. However, it's a bit more involved when you have ceramic or porcelain veneers installed, and in those cases here's what you can expect.

First you'll need to make a preliminary dental appointment at which your dentist will take some X-rays. At the next session, your dentist will trim away some amount of tooth enamel in preparation for the installation of veneers. Then an impression or a mold of your teeth will be made and sent away to a laboratory, to prepare temporary veneers. It will generally take a week or two for the finished temporary veneers to be returned.

At that time, you'll need another session with your dentist so that the fit and the color of your veneers can be evaluated. If it turns out the veneers are acceptable, a final mold will be taken and sent to the laboratory. When the final veneers are returned, they will be attached to your teeth using a special cement, and ultraviolet light will be used to ensure that the cement hardens quickly.

Several weeks after the installation, your dentist will probably ask you to come back for a final checkup. At this session, your dentist will determine whether the veneers are staying in place as they should, and whether they are functioning normally.
