Veneers Q & A

Are Veneers Stable?

Yes. There are foods that you should not eat such as hard candy, but otherwise, veneers hold up to normal eating. The downside of veneers is that they can stain. For that reason, certain foods such as tobacco products, red wine, and grape juice should be avoided or limited.

Can Veneers be Whitened?

Veneers cannot be whitened. If you want whiter teeth, you will need to undergo the whitening procedure before the veneers are placed. Veneers are color matched to your teeth at the time they are applied. The only way to re-match the color is to replace the veneers.

Why Should I Consider Veneers?

Veneers have very positive uses for dentistry. The primary reason people have veneers installed is to repair chipped teeth. This allows you to keep your own teeth without the jagged line caused by chipping. For cosmetic reasons, veneers are the only way to keep your own teeth and have them reshaped. The top three reasons people opt for veneers is to repair chips, resize teeth, and to reshape teeth.

Does Insurance Cover Porcelain Veneers?

Usually, insurance does not cover the cost of veneers. However, ask us to run a pre-authorization or a pre-determination. Sometimes a dental insurance company does cover the cost of veneers, but the reason behind the need is key. Chipped teeth that are causing pain might be a reason that veneers would be covered. In short, it pays to check and if you'd like us to do that just give us a call.

What are Veneers Made From?

Dental veneers are either made from porcelain or from resin. Most people opt for porcelain veneers since they resist staining better than do those made from resin. They also tend to be stronger than resin veneers. The last advantage of porcelain veneers is that they have a more natural look when applied. The advantage of resin veneers is that their installation is much quicker.
