Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth colored materials created to improve your teeth’s appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth and can change their size, color, shape, or length. Veneers cover problems like fractures and chips, discoloration, and gaps. Veneers are designed to change a tooth’s appearance completely, giving your teeth a more uniform look.
Visiting Pennington Family Associates and asking about veneers is the first step in determining if veneers are the right option for you, or if there are alternate solutions available.
The most common material used to make veneers is porcelain. Porcelain veneers are the best way to correct issues of shape or color and in some cases can last up to 20 years. They can cost anywhere from $800 to $2,000 per tooth. This can be a major expense for most consumers, so it’s important to know they will need to be replaced eventually.
