THE COST AND LONGEVITY OF VENEERS EXPLAINED

Two major factors that must be weighed with any dental treatment are cost and longevity. Cosmetic treatments are designed to enhance the appearance of the smile. Generally, the cost of porcelain veneers depends on the fees of the cosmetic dentist, artistic and technical skills of the ceramist making the veneers, the location where treatment is provided, number of teeth requiring veneers, and the type of dental insurance you have. Although cosmetic treatments such as veneers are typically not covered by dental insurance, the Central Dental Group team in Toronto, ON work with patients and their budgets to attain the smiles of their dreams.

We understand that the desire to feel better about your smile will often far outweigh the cost of treatment. An attractive smile can improve your personal and professional life, boost your self-esteem, and change your outlook toward life. Studies show people gravitate toward those who have attractive smiles over nice cars and clothing. Additionally, a smile boosts your mood by releasing endorphins.

Another reason to consider porcelain veneers is their longevity. Simple oral hygiene habits such as brushing at least twice daily, flossing before bedtime, and dental check-ups at least every six months can ensure your veneers last a decade or more. To ensure they look and feel exactly the way you want, we pay attention to every detail of your smile from consultation to veneer placement. Our highly respected cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jordan Soll, wants to know your smile goals and concerns. Porcelain veneers can be ideal for discolored, misshapen, gapped, misaligned, chipped, and uneven teeth.

Once your mouth, teeth, and gums have been examined, and porcelain veneers are recommended, a treatment plan is tailored to meet your unique needs. The process will involve impressions and customization by high quality ceramists at a dental laboratory. Dr. Soll will check for precise fit and ideal color before permanently bonding the veneers onto the affected teeth.

At a reasonable cost, you can count on porcelain veneers that last many years as you smile confidently at work and at home. To learn more about veneer treatment at Central Dental Group, call 416-789-1372.

Why Choose Porcelain Over Composite Veneers?

The costs of veneers also depends on the type of veneers that you opt for. Porcelain veneers, for example, are known to last long and their translucent color helps preserve natural tooth appearance. The dentist will remove a thin slice of tooth structure and prepare the tooth before fastening the veneer. During the second visit, we will cement the veneer onto the outer surface of your front tooth.

Another reason to consider porcelain veneers is their longevity. Porcelain is also stronger and more durable compared to composite material. Once bonded onto your tooth, they can last anywhere from 10-15 years. In comparison, composite resin veneers are more prone to chipping. Porcelain is stain-resistant while composite veneers stain just like natural teeth. In fact, if you get porcelain veneers for your upper and lower teeth, you may not need teeth whitening treatments for a very long time. 

In general, although porcelain veneers in Toronto are more expensive compared to composite ones in terms of initial investment, they prove to be more cost-effective over long term. 

 

Veneers and Oral Hygiene

Simple oral hygiene habits such as brushing at least twice daily, flossing before bedtime and dental check-ups at least every six months can ensure your veneers last a decade or more. Avoid hard consumables, smoking, heavy drinking or excessive consumption of staining foods and drinks like tea, coffee, red wine and soya sauce. Patients who have a habit of grinding their teeth or clenching their jaw may risk wearing out or chipping the veneers.

Dental Veneers Help Resolve a Host of Cosmetic Dental Issues

Porcelain veneers can be ideal for discolored, misshapen, gapped, misaligned, chipped and uneven teeth. Here’s a closer look at why veneers are worth the cost investment. 

 

Wear and Tear   

As we age, our teeth undergo natural wear and tear and the enamel often appears tired and worn. For some patients, tooth enamel can wear out faster due to genetic predisposition or consumption of certain types of medication. Veneers can breathe new life into your smile and help you appear more youthful and radiant.

 

Uneven Teeth  

Teeth can appear uneven due to gnashing, grinding or biting. Patients who grind their teeth during sleep (known as bruxism) may sport an uneven dental arch. Porcelain veneers are an ideal solution to correct uneven teeth.

 

Tooth Discolourations

Stubborn stains and tooth discolorations may not be entirely treatable with teeth whitening treatment.  In such cases, veneers are a superior alternative and can produce a dramatic effect.
