Dental Veneers

Dental veneers provide an excellent solution if you are looking to enhance your smile. They are a popular cosmetic treatment because of their overall effectiveness, ease of use and longevity.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells that are placed on the front surface of the teeth to enhance their appearance—they will hide any noticeable flaws and help the teeth appear straight and even.

Dental veneers are great if you’re experiencing crowding problems, chipped teeth, worn down teeth or have areas of stained teeth.  The shade of veneers can be adjusted to your tooth color, or significantly whiten your tooth color, and they are applied with minimal discomfort. Dental veneers are strong and durable and will last for many years before they require replacement or repairs.

Every set of dental veneers is custom-designed based on your needs—so you get the results you want. This means we will make two appointments with you, the first to take scans of your teeth and the second to apply and adjust the veneers to your teeth.

How much do dental veneers cost?

Dental veneers in New Port Richey & Palm Harbor, FL cost approximately $1500 – $2000 per tooth before insurance. Visit our dental membership plan page to access discounts on preventative, restorative and cosmetic dental care.

Does dental insurance cover dental veneers?

Typically, dental insurance does not cover the cost of dental veneers since it is more often than not an elective procedure. Dental insurance usually covers the cost of needed procedures, not cosmetic dentistry services. However, ESI Dentistry – Esthetic Smiles & Implants offers a dental membership plan to help compensate for these costs. You can sign up for our dental membership plan for only $24 / month. Other finance options include external dental payment plans: CareCredit and Compassionate Finance.

What is the process of dental veneers?

The first step in getting dental veneers is scheduling a consultation with us to make sure that it is the right decision for your smile. Once we have decided that dental veneers are right for you, you will schedule the initial dental veneer appointment. The initial appointment typically takes approximately 2 hours, and only minimal anesthetic is used. At our office, the process of dental veneers involves reducing only the face of the tooth minimally. We always start off with a test drive of your smile using a temporary set of veneers – you will never leave our office without at least a temporary set of pearly whites. Once you approve the blueprint, we can start bonding your final veneers!

After 2 weeks of approving the blueprint of your dental veneers, you will come in for a follow-up appointment. In this stage, we will place the veneers on your teeth and you will leave our office with a whole new smile. Learn more about aftercare treatment below.

Veneers vs. crowns - what's the difference?

Dental veneers and dental crowns are both used for cosmetic purposes—to resolve chips, stains, discoloration, or crooked teeth. The main difference between the two is that dental crowns cover the entire tooth surface where veneers only cover the front portion of the tooth. Crowns (2 mm) are much thicker than veneers (1 mm) and the price for each is similar. Crowns provide additional support to damaged teeth where veneers do not. However, veneers are a much less invasive procedure and require less removal of the original tooth structure.

Veneers and crowns are both a great solution for patients looking to get a white, straight smile that looks and feels natural. If you’re interested, but unsure which option is right for you, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.

What is the difference between porcelain veneers and composite veneers?

The two main types of dental veneers are porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Both are good options to help you improve your smile.

Composite veneers are manufactured in-office, using tooth-colored resin, and applied directly to the teeth. They are typically less expensive and quicker to apply than porcelain veneers, and they work well to cover up many aesthetic problems.

Porcelain veneers are custom-made out of porcelain or lithium-disilicate, to fit your teeth. These are typically made in a laboratory and sent to our office. We will apply them and ensure they fit your teeth as they should. Porcelain veneers generally last longer because of the stronger material, provide a more natural look, and can fix larger cosmetic issues such as very dark stained teeth or teeth positioned incorrectly.

Additional Recommendations After Treatment

ESI Dentistry – Esthetic Smiles & Implants recommends a few dental treatments after your dental veneers procedure:

  • Fluoride treatments from your dental hygienist
  • Regular dental checkup appointments
  • Sensitivity toothpaste
  • Electric toothbrush

These treatments will ensure that your dental veneers last a lifetime and that your oral health remains consistent.
