What Are Veneers
Veneers are a thin layer of natural tooth-colored porcelain, placed over a tooth, for the purpose of improving the overall look of a smile and/or to protect a tooth’s surface from damage.
Veneers were invented by a California dentist, Charles Pincus, for a film shoot in 1928, to change the poor look of the actor’s teeth. In 1937, Pincus manufactured veneers for the public but the glue was not strong enough to hold them in place. Finally, in 1982, a glue was discovered that made veneers more permanent.
Are Veneers for You
Veneers are a type of cosmetic procedure to improve one’s overall look, for those who wish to do so. They are also a successful way to protect a damaged tooth. For those who enjoy having whiter teeth, a better smile, a fuller, cleaner, whiter set of teeth, veneers are the perfect option.
Veneers come in many forms, the most popular of which is composite veneers and porcelain veneers. Composite veneers involve a simpler process than porcelain, however, some people believe the finished look is not as appealing as the more expensive porcelain veneer. And, with composite veneers, staining and discoloration can occur, which is why it is always good to practice a dedicated, daily oral hygiene regimen.
For those seeking to have veneers applied, an initial appointment is set where the patient’s wishes are discussed. An examination is performed to learn more about the patient’s history, areas of improvement and what would be the most natural course to take.
Some people choose to have one tooth done, a few teeth covered or all of their teeth. This is where flexibility is a plus and affordability is the bonus. Because each person’s needs are different and veneers can adapt to nearly any style or structure of the tooth, veneers are becoming more and more popular.
How Much Do Veneers Cost
Generally, veneers are not cheap and can run anywhere from $1000 all the way up to the $80,000 per tooth range, at some places. However, typically, the cost is up to $2500 per tooth.
