How Are Veneers Fitted?
Veneers are first hand-fitted one by one until they sit perfectly on your teeth. Then you preview the appearance – the shapes, sizes, and color – to make sure they are exactly what you want. If not, the veneers are corrected in our on-site lab, and once approved, they are securely bonded in place.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
It is more important to consider the quality and value than to focus on just the cost. If a dentist advertises nothing but a low cost, run! You will not receive the quality or the value. And many dentists charge different amounts based on the material they use and even the location of their practice. Because we make all our veneers in our lab, and because we have so many patients from all over San Antonio, we are able to pass savings on to you. You will receive excellent value due to custom work.
With so many factors affecting cost, the best way to get a realistic cost estimate is to visit your dentist and crunch numbers. See what your needs are, then look at what it will take to treat in terms of time, materials, and procedures. By working with your dentist to fully understand your needs, you will come up with a plan that delivers the best value and the best results possible.
What Are Veneers Made Of?
A number of materials can be used. Dental veneers are made of porcelain, ceramic, or plastic composite, of which there are many types and varying qualities. Genuine porcelain is currently the best material available, while plastics are the least expensive and least durable.
What Are the Advantages of Prepless Veneers?
Prepless veneers preserve more of your healthy natural tooth structure. Interestingly, they also stay on better because enamel is a much better bonding surface. (Much of that enamel must be removed for traditional veneers.)
Lumineers vs. Veneers – Which Is Better?
Lumineers is simply a brand name and is one of the best options out there. However, they have limitations because the Lumineers manufacturers and technicians are not here in our office participating with the patient. That’s why our in-house lab is the best way to go.
