Dental Veneers and Laminates
If cosmetic dental concerns have got you down and you’re wondering how you’re going to afford all the treatments necessary to fix the chips, cracks, gaps, and misalignments, there’s good news. Laminates and veneers are a cosmetic dentistry option that provides the ability to repair multiple small concerns in a single cosmetic treatment. Scarsdale Dental Team provides patients in its surrounding area with innovative and affordable cosmetic dentistry options.
What Are The Benefits Of Receiving Laminates or Veneers?
Veneers and laminates provide great cosmetic dentistry options for patients who want to improve their smile. Their versatility allows them to address multiple cosmetic concerns simultaneously as part of a single treatment. The most important benefits for these patients include the following:
- Natural Appearance: While it takes multiple appointments to get these veneers, the results are often indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Color and shape are both carefully managed to match.
- Single Treatment Repair: One of the greatest benefits of veneers is the ability to address multiple aesthetic problems with a single treatment. Chips, cracks, gaps, and minor misalignment can all be solved in one go.
- Durable Permanent Repair: Veneers resist decay and staining to a greater degree than your natural teeth due to their non-porous nature, making them a long-lasting repair.
Questions For Your Dr. Hofer About Dental Veneers and Laminates
What Type of Options Are There For Veneers?
Veneers come in a few materials, with porcelain being most common thanks to its ability to resist staining and more natural appearance. Composite veneers are also popular and can be matched to the color and appearance of your natural teeth easily.
What’s Involved In Receiving Dental Veneers?
The process for getting veneers typically involves multiple steps, starting with a consultation. Once it’s been determined that dental veneers are appropriate for your case, you will be scheduled for the next step, preparing your teeth. This involves the temporary removal of enamel from your teeth to prepare for a mold and your permanent veneers. Once the mold is completed, it will be sent to a dental lab so your permanent set can be manufactured. Finally, you’ll be called in to have them put in place.
Are Veneers and Laminates Covered By Insurance?
The majority of dental insurance doesn’t offer full coverage options for dental laminates and veneers. Of those that do, the majority of them will only cover up to 50% of the fee. It’s important to communicate with your provider before opting to get this treatment if coverage is a concern for you.
Can I See What The Veneers Will Look Like Before They’re Placed?
In the creation of your permanent cosmetic treatment, you’ll be able to see a digital smile preview. This is a digitally modified image of your face with the expected outcome edited in. This is often a good measure of whether the treatment will achieve the patient’s goals.
